Suppose you died, and just like in the movies your soul leaves your body and you float on up up and away through the clouds and into a white light and *poof* you're in front of the pearly gates of heaven. Being a good person, you are let into heaven. Would you be satisfied with yourself that you were an atheist back in your corporal days or would you wish you had, back then, had faith in the almighty. Second question: Would you be happy? Suppose there never was a hell, that was just a rumor, also no one was ever harmed, that was all an illusion to test you and there were your friends and family and swimming pool and BBQ and ice cold beers waiting for you. A perfect summer day! So, would you be happy to live in heaven? You see, I think most atheist would be. it's not that atheists are anti-God it's that we can't believe in God any more than you can will yourself to beleive in Xenu. It's just not a possibility. BUT, I think most of us like the idea. We would also like a lot of things, an honest president for example, but over here in the real world.. meh, it's just not real. So, you should NOT feel we are belittling you. Which we do sometimes do, do. But so what? You guys do the same thing to us. We just can not beleive in God any more than you could truely believe in Xenu. Go ahead: TRY to believe in Xenu. Think about for a bit. Think of the possibilities, think about Ron, think about this or that. You'll find you and I are just not able to believe in Xenu - it's just obviously not true. OK, I have just gotten back from 4 hours of dissections. So, I'm going for a beer and smoked salmon and cream cheese and avocado bagel, kind of as close as we are getting to heaven tonight Please Register or Log in to view the hidden image!
