I went to Sunday school but in Episcopal church, which is more like just learning that white people are rich and live in big houses and no one really takes the Jesus thing seriously we just don't really like Catholics. I never really heard of Revelation when I was a kid. The first time I remember hearing about the Rapture was on an episode of the Simpsons when Flanders' family gets Raptured.

This is a decent primer into the political nature of Revelation: https://www.newyorker.com/magazine/2012/03/05/big-reveal

Also, WTF?!??! How is that even possible about the golden ratio? That can't be a coincidence, right? Was that part of the joke? Was the golden ratio even discussed in Roman times? Did they use degrees? I'm so confused right now.
