And none of the ones mentioned have a single shred of justification for their beliefs.

But that's okay-- you do not need to justify a hobby, right?

How much faith does it take to not believe in Thor?
Good point. That's what I've been saying, what faith is required to not believe?

Maybe you weren't close enough. Try getting closer next time, and get back with us, if you can.

The whole basis of christianity is escaping death; the pipe dream of "eternal life". Quite sad and bordering on pathetic.

Exactly!

Show us the **proof**, show us the **facts**.

Faith is for the lazy of mind, who do not care to **see**.

You are in full projection mode. That means you don't "see" a damned thing, just your own thoughts blurting out into the void. You aren't looking at the light of your projections bouncing back to you.

And your projections don't bounce off the imaginary walls of the internet.

But they appear to cause a reaction within your thick skull, Yoda man, to cause a response.

Not a void, just an empty enclosed space catching waves and sloshing around a bit.

And THIS is what Theists build their lives and those in their families around:

THE BIBLE: Back when the bible was written, then edited, then rewritten, then rewritten, then re-edited, then translated from dead languages, then rewritten, then edited, then rewritten, then given to Kings for them to take their favorite parts, the rewritten, then translated again and given to the pope for him to approve, then rewritten, then re-edited again, then re re re re re rewritten again, all based on stories that were told ORALLY 30-90 years AFTER they happened to people who didn't know how to write..so........!! pitiful!!!!!!

Yes, that is the one :) The audacity of those who were trying to scam their way into making that a legal course appalled me. It is a wonder that the USA has education at all with those types sitting on the school boards.

None owes justification for their beliefs, unless they state their beliefs are facts.

You are admitting you consider eternal life unpleasant.

Not only would eternal life be unpleasant, I see it as an actual hell. Every goal that you ever wanted to achieve would be realized, everything you ever desired would be realized, and then what? Another thousand years to look forward to, and then another million, and what will you now do with every goal you ever wanted fulfilled? No matter what you aspire to, no matter how many goals you could think of, all would be fulfilled and you'd be left with NOTHING. An endless string of nothing, millions of years with nothing, this is the true hell, and comically this is what Theists live and breath for, pitiful. As Woody Allen once said, "eternity is a really long time, especially toward the end."

That is why you picked the faith you did.
