How do you know God is real when you don't know if YOU are real? How can you prove that YOU and everything that you have experienced is nothing more than a figment of MY imagination?

Also, why do you assume that hell is a literal place with fire and such? Why could it not more poetic, hyperbola or allegorical?

So many people say that faith (religion - hate that word) is "made up" to "control behavior". What controls human behavior more - religion, or LAWS? In the U.S., we have people who don't even know what the "law" is, but they behave - as instructed. I witnessed a demonstration where the speaker TOLD the audience he was going to throw a tennis ball at them, and he told them NOT to catch it. He did it 3 times, and each time, the person tried to catch the ball. It would never have hurt them, but they simply HAD to catch it. Why? Because they have been inundated with LAW!

Wake up, folks. It's going to get bad before it gets worse.
