You didn't answer the question. What makes you think that this imaginary torture you speak of should be the least bit frightening?

And how do you know that hell exists at all?

You are so afraid of Jesus , you can't even spell His name correctly. You weak demented atheist.
It's spelled "Jewsus" to remind you your fictional "hero" was a Jew, first and foremost.

Moreover? He **commanded** you to FOLLOW ALL THE LAWS.

I bet you eat ... bacon.

You are SUCH a lying little sack of hypocrisy.

1) do good because it is the RIGHT thing to do-- not because of some THREAT.

2) hell is not real

3) Praying is the same as spell-casting. Worthless. And does NOT QUALIFY as doing good.

It's not even as useful as m*sterbation... which at least clears out your prostate...

Explain **how** morality is objective.

Be specific. Cite your sources, if any.

False. Judeochristhole DOES treat women as things, property.

The language of the ugly bible is **very** specific that women are things, to be dispersed by the MEN ONLY.

Did you know, according to the ugly bible, that a young unmarried woman, who has no father (who in turn had no brothers) is UNABLE TO WED? Nobody to give her away! She'd have to be adopted by a MAN, first... otherwise she dies an old maid, without property too.

It's an ugly religion.

I hope that hell doesn't exist and that's it's just a bluff. What would be fair is for some people to have an after life, and some people just don't, as they didn't want one anyway and rejected the idea. Dante's Inferno is the only real detailed description of eternal hell. As far as actual scriptures, only the Quran has detailed descriptions such as drinking molten brass, having you skin burned and healed so that it could be burned again etc...

As far as I remember, the New Testament only talks about a harvest where the fruitful crops will be separated from the weeds and collected, and the weeds will be thrown into the fire, as is what happened with actual harvests back then. Jesus spoke in metaphors all of the time. It does say that the fire will never quench, but that doesn't necessarily mean that a person would still remain alive and suffer forever, it might just mean the fire itself will never quench or run out of it's ability to end the life/soul of weeds or people that should not have an afterlife because they spat at the idea itself. At least, I hope so. I can't imagine anything that anybody could possibly do to deserve eternal torture. Simply extinguishing their soul would be fair, but eternal torture just doesn't seem to be.

Maybe there is a god that heaps rewards upon non-believers.
That can't be disproved.

Hey, that would be fine with me. Has nothing to do with me, so why would I complain? The funny part is that if God said to me, I'm going to ask you whether I should punish Hitler for all that he did, and if you say yes, then I will punish him and you also for all you did as well, but if you say no, then I will forgive him and you for all of your wrongdoings as well. To me, that's a no brainer. Forgive him and forgive me.

But you would be surprised at how many people actually want to have their feeling that "justice" has been done and get their "pound of flesh", so to speak, that they would even cause suffering to themselves, just to see someone else suffer. Sounds crazy to me, but it's true.

"7 “Do not judge, or you too will be judged. 2 For in the same way you judge others, you will be judged, and with the measure you use, it will be measured to you. 3 “Why do you look at the speck of sawdust in your brother’s eye and pay no attention to the plank in your own eye? 4 How can you say to your brother,‘Let me take the speck out of your eye,’ when all the time there is a plank in your own eye? 5 You hypocrite, first take the plank out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to remove the speck from your brother’s eye."

"And when you stand praying, if you hold anything against anyone, forgive him, so that your Father in heaven may forgive you your sins."

"Do not judge, and you will not be judged. Do not condemn, and you will not be condemned. Forgive, and you will be forgiven. Give, and it will be given to you"

As far as I'm concerned, all of that is up to God and I do not have the wisdom nor the right to make such decisions, nor to even complain. It horrifies me to see people wish hell on others. And if someone thinks that way, I wouldn't be surprised if they are right behind the guy in line that they want to see punished.

How would you know that this theoretical god was being honest with you?

The bible you often quote is full of alleged tests.

My position is that god should not forgive Hitler, irrespective of any supposed deal.

Well then, if there is a punishment, then I suppose you'll get yours as well and you are just fine with that. So seeing someone else get punished is important enough for you, that you would even willing to be punished yourself just to see someone else get punished. Oh well, that's your choice. It wouldn't be mine.
