you've heard something about "energy", somebody invented the term "soul", somebody called brain functions "consciousness"...
and now all of you believe when your body dies and your brain dissolve into single atoms, this "energy" of yours goes somewhere.
this so called consciousness is not a package, it's not a piece of matter nor it is some self contained energy field.
ah well, tooth fairy is also reel for some humans... till the age of 5 or soedit on 29-12-2012 by KrzYma because: (no reason given)
Perhaps Heaven is not for me. How could God be so cruel to create a species that is so destructive.
Then our first speaker declared that we would prove our case by subjecting God to a War Crime Trial based on the International Conventions on warfare.
Then I, as our Second speaker, spoke about God! I went through Biological attacks on Egypt, Plagues, locusts, poisoning water supplies, killing Infants and new born male children. I went through the crime of Genocide with the flood and noted the huge animal cruelty issues as well. Nuclear like attacks on Sodom and Gomorrah, everything got a mention. We went through the likely view as Noah looked out of the Ark to see bodies, including little babies, floating and bloating. I went a little into overtime. There was just so much information to go through.
The real question is that if God is not good, then what is He, A dictator perhaps. When He sent Moses down with his Commandments, the first 30% were all about His demands on how we grovel before Him.

Wow. You definitely are young because your ignorance is quite apparent.
But you know what? No one is forcing you to go to heaven, even if you do believe it exists. In fact you aren't going there by default anyway so all you have to do is do nothing. You have a choice, that is a wonderful gift given you while you live. Once that is over, there is no other choice but the one you've chosen.
So stop whinging like a spoiled child and just live out what you believe instead of saying God is cruel out of ignorance.
If you really expected God to come down and stop all the hurt we humans inflict on each other, we wouldn't have free choice anymore would we...or is that too had to grasp?

We must be Gods in the flesh within this universe. God can not create different souls, if God is thee soul everything is of. God can not create different souls if Gods soul is infinite. When we die, Gods soul returns back to from where it was given. Gods soul is; each and every one of us.

You're describing heaven as being boring, but you nor I have ever been there.
I also went to a private catholic school during my elementary years. By the time I reached 6th grade, I wanted out and attended a public school. You would think I would be a staunch catholic, but I'm far from it. I am very skeptical about organized religion. There are so many religions that are hypocritical, judgmental and absolutely controlling. Some of the bible stories nuns and priests would try to influence us with could easily be categorized as fairy tales. We were also taught about two conflicting Gods, one from the first testament and one from the new testament.
We've been taught to believe things that have been taught to us by religious leaders and by our parents for over a millennium. We really don't know squat. It's why they call it faith. When people tell you what heaven or hell is like, it's all B.S.. I don't know anybody who has ever died went to hell or heaven and came back to tell their story.
