I am an agnostic not an atheist, so as for the creation of the universe, I dont think there is enough evidence to say what is the cause. That is my personal view.<quoted text>
If you are under a false nation that this Universe just came by itself and human just "evolved" with no purpose for his life on this earth .. then you are taking a big gamble . A gamble with your life . And it might cost you dearly.
This is a friendly advice form one Human to another brother in humanity!!
In terms of purpose. I believe we each create our own purpose here. I dont feel the need ro rely of deities for a purpose in my life.
The talk about taking a gamble with my life if I chose incorrectly reminds me of Pascal's wager. The best bet according to him was to chose God's existence.
"If you erroneously believe in God, you lose nothing (assuming that death is the absolute end), whereas if you correctly believe in God, you gain everything (eternal bliss). But if you correctly disbelieve in God, you gain nothing (death ends all), whereas if you erroneously disbelieve in God, you lose everything (eternal damnation)."
There are manu arguments against this wager. My favorite is that it is dishonest to feign belief, to try to con God into thinking you are worthy of eternal bliss by deception.
The whole idea of heaven and hell is illogical and contradictory. For starters this is based on ancient myth. The Jewish desert nomadic people believed "up there" is a Semitic god of war accompanied by a pantheon of angels and sons of god. In reality there is sky and then space. There is no physical heaven and hell.
Secondly hell is a barbaric and immoral idea. That for simply being born in the wrong place, or time, or wrong religion, you can be sent to a firey hellish place for eternal punishment. No compassionate entity would be so cruel and immoral. The reality is that when own brains die, we die. All the evidence in the real world supports this.
