Have no worries. You have a better chance of getting hit by lightning or winning Lotto.

I applied thought to the religious indoctrination that was being foisted upon my young mind. That's why I am no longer shackled to 4th C dogma

Take a peek at Joshua 24:15 and Romans 6:16-23. Oh yes we do have a choice of which route to follow, one will do much more than just shrug when they wake up in torment after this life.

when ligntening does hit it sure tears up jack, doesn't it? I think a 50/50 chance is much more probable than either of the events you advocated.

Our bodies return to the dust, you are correct on that. Eccleasties 12:7 our spirit will return to God who gave us our spirit. 1 Corinthians chap 15 tells of our new bodies we will receive

Oscar Wilde wrote "The importance of Being Ernest" also. I was not aware he was a noted theologian and thus offered his opinion on spiritual matters. Lassie has an opinion also.W.C. Fields wrote "the best way to fight temptation is to give in to it". Do you ascribe to that theory?

HOw you like these odds?...Obey and serve God faithfully until death and receive your heavenly reward 100%, Ignore God and/ or Serve something other than God and receive eternal punishment 100%. Sounds like a slam dunk to me Skippy.

Patriot, don't you understand that your Bible is full of flaws?

Bad science, bad history, failed prophecies and self contradictions abound.

Why should anyone believe it? Since the Bible is terribly flawed you cannot use the Bible to prove the Bible, you have to find some outside source that supports your claims.

Already done. But it won't help you. Even your favourite ancient superstitious book is no defence against omniscience. Free will is an illusion.

Strictly speaking your god has a 1 in 10,0002 chance of being the correct one.

Does that even matter? I mean you're a complete nobody and you often your opinion on spiritual matters.(shrug)

Only problem is that no-one on Earth can demonstrate their religious opinions are any more valid than anyone else's. That's why we prefer to leave the philosophical babbling to you fundies while we stick to facts, logic and evidence.

As there is no god, you have a better chance of being hit by lightning or winning the lotto. That was my point. Sounds like you're blinded by your dogma Skippy.
