Anywho back to the topic...To me there is no such thing as a soul, so therefore there is no concept of Heaven or Hell.... we just die on the Earth and the molecules we once used, will be used around the world like a slut... our molecules constructed then they deconstructed, then reconstruct again.. the cycle keeps on going until our blue little planet Earth gets suck up in a black hole were all the molecules will be compressed or sumthing


So even knowing for certain what will happen beyond death deep down every nincompoop feels they'll live on somehow. I think that's what everyone shares in common, "I'm too important to go down like that, God damn it!." Humans feel they're so important.

Rightfully so, I mean not to the point of self conceit but we all think we're more than nothing.

It's more a case of identifying people who won't change given a chance. That's why some apparently anomalous results exist. A soul who is capable of great things needs to be given a chance to prove themselves; those great things will not necessarily be for the benefit of people. If this sounds woolly, it's only covering every base. Some people don't like being accused of that, so they don't do it at all. That's almost worse than accusing them.
I lost you after the semicolon. You're either as deep as the ocean or you're high; or both

I think of it as a choice on the part of the "naughty" person rather than some punishment ordered by another party. I say that the person is wholly deserving of that outcome.

What came after "rather" until the full stop made that sentence weired.

I pity the fools who can't explain themselves.

What exactly do you find weird about that part of the sentence? It simply refers to the idea that some deity judges and punishes a person in the afterlife (which I do not believe).

I felt you needn't to elaborate more on your thoughts than that vague sentence. I still don't get you to be honest.

Oh and the video it was my attempt to look hip. Apparently it's a craze to respond with YouTube clips.

Anathema's an interesting word...wonder why i never saw it mentioned anywhere.

No opinion from me. I'm blank, and honestly, just not interested.

No. I don't believe anyone deserves eternal damnation, hell, or some torturous, painful afterlife. Perhaps all of their crimes could happen to them, then they'd be off the hook and in some sort of limbo until they prove they're worthy of heaven? Even that's better than hell for forever.

I don't believe in hell or eternal damnation. If there are deities, gods or goddesses or something else, I hope they aren't so vengeful and malevolent as to do such a sick, horrible thing. I would worship no deity that creates a hell as I've understood it to be.

I want to believe that everyone has their reasons and people are essentially good. Kind-of like secular humanism. I would not even send Jeffrey Dahmer or other serial killers, rapists, pedophiles, or cannibals to hell. I just don't believe in that. I think genetics and upbringing / environment have so much to do with who people are, and that everyone deserves a second chance, or more than that. And why couldn't the deity just "fix" whatever's in their brain that makes them naughty, then let them go to reincarnation or heaven or limbo or wherever...

Eternity > Life
Much much longer than life, not a fair punishment at all. That's not justice, that's just cruel and sadistic, in my opinion.


I'd be surprised if we didn't share similar opinions on this certain subject in particular.
