Better Never to Have Been argues for a number of related, highly provocative, views: (1) Coming into existence is always a serious harm. (2) It is always wrong to have children. (3) It is wrong not to abort fetuses at the earlier stages of gestation. (4) It would be better if, as a result of there being no new people, humanity became extinct. These views may sound unbelievable--but anyone who reads Benatar will be obliged to take them seriously.
actually according to gnostic scripture this is erroneous only because the "creator" GOD of the flesh and this place IS Satan, .. it was only until Jesus Christ came and told us of the True Father that he was known because of the "sleep" that satan put on us, and it was actually Jesus Christ who gave the fruit to Adam and Eve so they would recognize where they originated from, because the way Satan was born was the original creator the "True Father" created a counterpart who was equal to him and FIRST they created Christ the only begotten son (from the father/to father is what begotten means) and THEN the "counterpart" went by herself WITHOUT the permission of the father and created another "imperfect" being and seeing he wasn't perfect because she didn't have the permission of the "True Father" to create him, she cast him aside it was said in a cloud so that the others from the immortal race wouldn't see him because SHE was ashamed, he essentially got bored and went and created a place which it is said in the text to contain a luminous ball of fire which "exists until this day" then he created a whole bunch of things and then declared that "'He is God and there is no other God beside him,' because he is ignorant of his strength, the place from which he had come.

I was just thinking, in all fairness, the christain god seems to be the bigger asshole compared to satan... I mean what kind of father would abandon his own children and kick them out of home for simply eating a fruit, that made them smarter and more like dear old dad?
Also with that whole ten plagues crap, if god is all powerful he simply could have killed the pharaoh or teleported the slaves away, you know done something peaceful like he is always writing, but no he whips up 10 plagues that destroy the innocent egyptian people even killing babies, in some sick idea it will get a king to let some slaves go?
And he used to commonly appear to people apparently and sort out their petty problems but these days he seems much more content to simply let millions of good people die in horrible ways, whilst letting the evil ones live long and healthy lives.
Christains believe god created a entire universe of what over 100 billion stars and yet he spends all his time watching this tiny rock, and effin spanks those that want to go outside to these places? And that Lucifer rebelled against god somewhere down the line, if thats the case then who was the snake in the garden? If it was Lucifer, and god cast him out previously into hell, then since there were no people on Earth why was satan running hell for??
Religions preach peace, yet are the main cause of war throughout the world, with each one saying that there's is the right one. Here's a thought YOU'RE ALL WRONG!!!! They had reporters and newspapers in the roman empire, yet still there is no proof of a ARYAN born guy who can heal people and walk on water, a story like that would be a pretty good scoop yareckon. Isn't it far more likely that poor old mary was a rape victim who was embarrased to say anything, or a UFO abductee?? OH BUT NO!!! God didn't create Aliens, he only created MAN, yeeeeahhhhhh, but mutant frogs with 3 heads and people with no legs are born...why??? So god and his angel buddies can get some cheap laughs?
Seriously you're basing your whole lives on a book that is over 2000 years old, and changed so many times by corrupted politicians and boy loving priests, that it doesn't even make sense anymore...
Imagine if archaeoloists in 2000 years find an old superman comic, they'll probably start thinking that he was some jesus figure and await he's return to save us all, wearing silly gold S's around theyre neck, and half drowning new borns, to wash away their sins.
Even if it means excactly te same thing and people around the world are loving each other, that silly false idol line ruins it all, what does god have an ego problem??? he wants everyone to only worship him?? and live excactly as he says to, but in the end he is only gonna let 144000 to his party at the pearly gates?
