I find it upsetting that your life isn't for filling enough to you without a higher purpose to look forward to.
I fully agree, Captain. It's extremely ignorant to think that athiests get up in the morning thinking there's nothing to live for just because we
have the balls to go through life without the need for a mental crutch such as the belief of eternal life.
In fact, is it possible that athiests appreciate/respect/love life even more than believers because atheists think that one day it will all be gone?
It'd make sense wouldn't it?
Also, if I'm wrong and there is a God and I'm standing at those pearly gates after I die and God turned around to me and said ''You, you led a
good honest life, but you didn't believe in me so you're not coming in'' and then turned around to the guy behind me who had commited
murder/robbery/e.t.c all his life but turned to God in his last years and asked forgiveness, would God say ''Okay, no probs here, you believe in me
now and you're sorry, the suffering you caused doesn't matter now, get your short and curlies in here''?, well, this wouldn't seem at all fair
would it? Now, if there is a God and he is this petty then he can stick his eternal kingdom where the sun don't shine, because I'm not having
someone......no matter how universally powerful.....judging me on logic as warped as that.
Saying that, it was still an entertaining cast. I'd tone down on the laughing parts a bit though, it sounded a bit TOO mocking.
