|Just a quick thought on Hell.|
It promises eternal suffering (how very christian). But, in my own experience, with time you can get used to all types of pain (I've been a martyr to toothache and backache for a long time, but don't even feel anything anymore). So, how does this work? Exponantial increase in pain levels until the end of eternity? (And believe you me, in the wise words of Bad Religion: "Eternity, my friend, is a long fucking time"). Because if that's how it works, god's little torturous helpers would have to at least start by giving me a blowjob as a form of torture before they can even reach the point when pain becomes just a tiny nuisance...
Read "Surface Detail" by Ian Banks. It's a way better description of hell than what they whiny little Christians call hell.
Of course, we've had 2000 years to refine our ideas of hell from when Paul or his disciples (I suspect) wrote revelation.
Ignored by those who can't provide evidence for their claims.
