What I got from your post is something like this:
"Yes, those are very logical conclusions. I came to those conclusions a while ago as well. But you should do what I did: take logic, ball it up in your hand, lob it out the window, and just stop thinking! Everything will so much clearer!"
Thanks, but no thanks. If it's not logical, it's obviously illogical. And I'm not going to ignore that just so I can kiss some lazy psychopath's feet for all of eternity. After all the things I posted on this page, you'd have to be crazy to consider selling your soul to such an entity.edit on 10-2-2013 by AfterInfinity because: (no reason given)
You know something, just the fact that you're tangling with God shows that he has some relationship with you, and you have some relationship with him. Time to man up and handle your business. Take one step towards him, he takes two towards you. He wont' forgive you for all that trash your talking unless you say it to his face which we all know you wont' do,
Even he's not taking you serious right now because you're not even a point where you can identify him on any radar, your anger and hate is really just an extension of some other personal problem, you do realize that right?

Completely sincere question: What if you do that earnestly and passionately and humbly every day of your life for decades, are completely honest with yourself and others, do your utmost to act out of unconditional love and compassion toward all beings, and yet never find any inner peace or faith despite these heartfelt efforts? And yet despite that, you never become bitter or angry. Just... miserable and alone feeling. Yet still never receive any insights that are substantive or powerful enough to imbue you with faith, or peace?edit on 2/10/2013 by AceWombat04 because: Typo

Most of the time I don't believe in hell, its like 90% i dont believe in hell but 10 percent of me does. but when I think about hell i get very very scared because i think what if hell is real and when i die ill go there and suffer forever. I would call myself an agnostic/atheist. Its like i have this phobia of dying but most importantly l what can happen after death and especially of the reality of hell. I cant rule out the possibility of hell and so that why im really scared. i dont know why im scared. my mind says hell is not real but it my subconcsious says it might be real. i dont want to die and be wrong because itll be too late then. any help wuld be appreciated.

I've heard the only way to heaven is through Jesus. You have to believe and accept him.
As far as hell goes, it could be many things. I also heard that God made us incomplete. To be complete, You have to have the missing part that God has. If you go to hell, you'll be forever incomplete and that knowledge might be hell. I imagine it might be like feeling in love with a girl but knowing she will never accept you except in hell you would not even have any hope anymore. I can imagine a lot of terrible tortured souls in hell and that is one place I definitely do not want to visit. However I also understand why so many are turned off by organized religions.

I've pondered many a sleepless night about my own mortality. I think most of us have. It's human nature.
Why are we here? What happens once we're gone?
Those two questions are responsible for seeding the ideas that have sparked religion, gods and demons, heaven and hell.
No one has answered them yet, and you won't be able to either. Find something else to occupy your mind.
