A whole bottle of sake per fish? The story was as vague as it was weird.

Place: PseudoChristian Hell
Time: After my death.

In the Lake of Fire, writhing in eternal torment are the bodies of Adolf Hitler, Mark Lotzer, Gandhi, and True Jesus.“Oh the pain! It’s horrible! We burn! The torment of it and we are damned to suffer forever!” Suddenly, Satan says,“Ok, it’s fine! PseudogOd isn’t looking anymore! I haven’t let the water get too cold!”

Adolf:“Actually, a couple degrees warmer would be nice! How about it guys?”

Everyone nods in agreement.

True Jesus:“What is taking Madalyn?

Satan:“Murray O'Hair was muttered something about tonight’s adventure taking a little longer to prepare.”

Gandhi:“We’re just invading PseudoHeaven! I can not wait for my assassin to slit some of those PseudoChristians’ throats!”

Adolf:“Hey, you’re supposed to be a Pacifist!”

Gandhi:“Oh, PLUCK YOU! I can do whatever I want. It is just make believe!”

True Jesus:“Mark, stop smiling! We all know you are going to get some after the D&D game!”

Mark:“That is not what I am smiling about. I am just content. I have been this way ever since I found my Muse! I am worried about how long this thing I have with Madalyn can last, after all it has been a couple of centuries already!”

Satan:“I have seen it before. You are just another incurable romantic. You and Madalyn will always be like this” and he crosses fingers in front of his gaming buddies.

PseudoChristians, you are nothing special. You just another group of intolerant buttheads! Just know that the Members of the Age of Reason have banded together to protect the innocent from any with your world domination aspirations. Think of it as a Pentagon of Protection composed of Atheism, Agnosticism, Satanism, The Zoroastrian-Judeo-Christian-Is lamic Tradition, and Paganism that will surround and protect the world at large from the likes of you!

I Believe AGNOSTICISM. Theist, Agnostic, or Atheist (i.e. I believe in some form of religion; I suspend belief in any form of religion; or I believe in no form of religion). Since it is impossible to prove any of the choices, you are equally correct in picking any one of them.-------- Science Happened-GET OVER IT!-------- I PLEDGE THIS ON MY SWORD OF REASONED THOUGHT AND EMPIRICAL SCIENCE SHALL BE MY SHIELD! I AM THE PALADIN REBORN FOR THE AGE OF REASON. ALWAYS REMEMBER MY STURDY YEW LONGBOW ON MY BACK WHICH I WILL USE TO PLUCK AWAY MY DETRACTORS FROM A DISTANCE. FRODO AND LUKE LIVE AND VAINAMOINEN IS AS WISE AS A MAN BORN OLD. THESE ARE MY PERSONAL TRUTHS!

If you would like to see how this all begins, please go to:


You are boring and dull because you are intellectually dead! I guess that is what faith based thinking can get you. I have yet to see any of you provide anything other than the usual gibberish.

My read bible right. You wrong. Only church brain dead can get into, bless.
