ohmygosh.  I completely missed that (was hurriedly typing up the last bit 
of at 10:30 last night, and only gave it a spell check review before 
posting).  Looking over the few sentences on either side of the scene break, 
I could have had lots of fun playing with peoples' headspaces.  Ah well, 
a lost opportunity, but entirely my own fault.

Although there was a bit of surprise for Carl about how *weird* things 
were, the main surprise was for the dominionists and therefore not shown 
on screen.  They were quite honestly expecting that they would survive 
the energy assault, believing that because they were acting as righteous 
intermediaries on on behalf of their god, (and further, as per divine 
command theory, that their god is not only good, but the source of good, 
and can therefore never be involved in an evil act) that they would be 
Or to use a more prosaic metaphor, they expected there to be more fine 
control over what they unleashed, but instead of being able to safely 
observe up close a surgical military strike, they ended up standing at 
ground zero when the nuke went off.

that the Abrahamic god is omnipotent and omnibenevolent, that's where 
the blasphemy comes in.)
