"you may want to consider that there is no heaven or hell"
I keep an open mind, but no, I will not consider that, and I HAVE considered it before. Me, personally? I believe that Hell is all suffering, and not
an actual place. Heaven? I believe is the ultimate paradise. So, no, I will not consider that, sorry. Good and evil might be man made concepts - in
part. I'll give a scenario. Say that good and evil was never made up. Raping a 7 year old child wasn't considered good nor bad, what would YOU
personally do in that situation..hmm..say it happened to your DAUGHTER..what then? Since there is no good and evil, what is this? It is evil. Pure
Gassing millions. How about this? Pure evil.
Evil exists. Good exists. This isn't just a 'concept', it is truth. Why? Because when I help an elderly person, donate money to the poor, or give
of my personal time to help others, I get that feeling. That feeling that you KNOW you have done something good, and this is more than a concept, my
friend, much more. When someone does something evil, or even when I do something evil, I know it. When I see someone being racist (happened recently)
to a close friend of mine, I know it is evil. And when I stuck up for that person (which I did), I knew I did something right. Good and Evil are more
than just a concept. Heaven and Hell are more than just a concept. That very argument you posed on me "You can't put man's laws on something that
is not human" used to be my personal argument to use in my favor. And now I see that there may be a heaven, and something else, and there may be a
hell, and something else. There is always more.
As for convincing me of there not being a heaven and hell? No. I will not buy it. You wanna know what hell is? Fighting in 'Nam. That is hell. And
they all knew it. You wanna know what heaven is? Knowing you are doing good, and realizing that you are on the right path. That is heaven.
