You explain things to people. You try to make them face some harsh (likely-to-be) truths. In another comment you ended Deal with it, and I do not like that phrase. It implies that you have had the last word and that your word is law and truth. It usually comes from people who are consistently arrogant, and you are certainly not that way!<quoted text>Just because you wish to not be separated does not make it possible.
Your poem shows why the afterlife was invented by mans imagination. We want, so we imagine. Just remember our imaginations are just our imaginations. They are not visions as the ancients believed and wrote bible stories as if fact.
The bible often describes dreams as a vision. We know better now, or at least we should.
If someone told you about their dream last night and claimed it was a vision, would you not laugh at him?
This is why we laugh at those who believe the ancients dreams were visions.
When I write to you or some of the other thoughtful theists I am interested in your background and what makes you take the tone you do toward people. Yours does not seem to be hostile, nor tough love either, but sort of impersonal and focused on what you believe to be true and false, not on putting someone down in a personal way, yet not really desperately trying to "sae" them from their delusions, either. sort of a teaching mode,I would call it.
I sometimes think that a few atheists came from backgrounds where they were indoctrinated and repressed and limited in what they could learn about as children, and who had to fight their way out - both intellectually and socially - maybe at some emotional cost of cutting or straining ties with friends and family. A few from those backgrounds seem very hostile toward all Christians and all of Christianity - and others seem to want to rescue people from their delusions (strangely like the true believers in Christianity want to save nonbelievers, only for this lifetime, and not for some hoped-for made-up eternal life in a hoped-for made-up heaven.)
That was why I explained to you that my background was free from religious indoctrination, and social pressure. I was not a part of my town's social life, and did not want to be. I had better things to interest me. It makes me feel privileged, and I do not understand from my own experience what it is like to be brainwashed and pressured and repressed by religion. I hardly recall reading the Bible except after I was older, out of curiosity, because I had read about the Jefferson Bible and I decided to take a red pen and mark out all the parts I did not like.
I quickly switched over to making little stars near the passages that were halfway decent instead, to save time, since so much of it was awful. I cannot imagine being submerged in all that stuff, and the preaching and teaching that does with it. I am interested in how the escapees escaped from it.
