A believer (doesn’t matter,one bit, who the person is,as im not interested in any personal attack. My interest is in starting a conversation rolling), is busily cautioning other people about not burying their heads in the sand
From what we understand Hell will not be a happy place where you can share with your friends. It will be a lonely devoid place without light. Even if there is the remotest chance that it could be true, wouldn’t you want to not bury your head in the sand and ignore that possibility because once you die it will be too late then. Just because you believe there is nothing doesn’t mean there will be nothing.
end quote (my bold)
But an atheist, or agnostic person ,or decent caring moral believer for that matter, might put it this way instead
From what we understand
Hell will not be a happy place where you can share with your friendswe have absolutely no evidence , as yet,that any such thing as hell, or heaven, even exist. It will be a lonely devoid place without lighttherefore it would be most unwise to live this life of what we actually do know for sure we do have, as if an afterlife might exist. Even if there is the remotest chance that it could be true, wouldn’t you want to not bury your head in the sand and ignore that possibility because once you die it will be too late then. Just because you may have faith there is nothingan afterlife doesn’t mean there will be nothingany afterlife.
Meanwhile, loads and loads of people, universally worldwide, will have already lost out big time. Through been already forced to live out extremely unhappy lives on earth, that a number of unlucky people would likely best describe as pretty much already feeling like a living hell
Consider how many ex cult members have already lived through a living hell of a life here on earth, having lost out on their ability to share life with their friends/family they lost, whenever divided by religion
Meanwhile theists are more concerned and far more preoccupied about very slim possibility that this (same loss like what ive just mentioned above) might occur in some future after life, of what there is also no evidence for . The evidence of God, is so slim, that even theist prayers to God, have been proved time and time again, as obviously not working.And yet if God were to exist, we should surely have good reason to at least expect that theist prayer might be scientifically proven, as positively working. Yet this is not the evidence
That evidence in itself should set some warning bells ringing, right ?
Surely faith belief should be approached, with far more caution
Sad situation is that this kind of extreme evil is being perpetuated under the pretense of it being what we should see as being morally righteous and good
That’s not good, is it?
This is the evil depth of devaluation of human life. Devaluation of life by believers that on the other hand will then still do their best as well too, to also try and pretend to honestly value human life , whenever taking part in actively opposing acts of abortion , or euthanasia
One cannot help but wonder, how is this not the sign of hypocrites ?
Should there be no afterlife. Many theist are inclined to look upon this possibility as if it would still amount to absolutely no loss to anyone (most specially preoccupied in consideration of themselves). In effect Pascals wager
In this sense , theist are then happy to write off the suffering of so many, even including all those poor people whom suffered immense pain while being burned alive at the stake.
As being totally unworthy of theists consideration
The very worst part about this mess. Is this. If in fact no afterlife exists.And no God exist either. Then theist will all get off free of facing any form of justice, in regard to this immense amount of harm they already have helped to perpetuate .
How shameful is that ?
Shame on humanity for allowing it . About time that there was action taken to finally help resolve this. Perhaps the UK government religious freedom envoy might care enough to step up take the lead and help
