Could it not be, that here might have been some sort of nuclear war, and that this is the only safe place to be? Maybe the good ones.....god???....placed them on this island to start all over again? Of course there are forces in movement who want to ruin it all (always), thus "the others".
We have already seen people beginning to "couple up". This would explain the ratio 10:4 in the gender among the 14 main characters. 4 strong women and 10 males....only the strongest/smartest get a lady?
Of course this isnīt it, but itīs a thought. Could also be an experiment by some government who wishes to see what people do in this situation? Or.....or maybe.....no.....all ideas taken....
I have to stop thinking about it cause itīs driving mE MAD!!!
A nuclear explosion could explain why the instruments went dead (EMP), but if that was the case, wouldn't the plane have gone down immediatly, not 1000 miles later?
The other question is, how do Danielle, Ethan and whoever else might be on the island fit in with this? And, you'd think the gender ratio would be the opposite.. more females to be seeded by a few males..
Interesting theory though. I've seen "The Stand" mentioned so many times in relation to this show... I suppose I'll just have to read it, won't I?
