I'd like to hear more about how god helps Lee Adama survive when the entire population of "Earth" realize what a huge mistake they've all made in giving up their technology.
Why assume that Lee forced them to? Those who didn't want to give up technology might have just moved to another part of the planet.
Yea and maybe a giant hurricane god made to punish their insolence wiped them all out before they rose up and took over the planet.

Look, you can really postulate whether everyone gave up their tech or whether a small group just said "Fuck....errr....Frak Lee Adama. I don't want to die because I get Tuberculosis". But the most likely interpretation, the one I believe we're meant to take is that such a group does not exist.
I think that it's very likely that there were dissenters, for one simple reason: Lee did not have the *power* to force anyone to give anything up. All he did was make a suggestion. He could not have had the ability to *enforce* it. He had no ships or weapons at his disposal.
