Evidence against Hell?
« on: October 03, 2017, 08:35:28 PM »
Maybe this should be merged but I don't really know.

I am ever so terrified of Hell. The fact that other people have gone there and I myself may one day go too if I'm not good.

I almost at times wish Hell doesn't exist, but our Blessed Lord Jesus Christ spoke of it far more than of Heaven.

Can you people tell me why you don't believe in Hell and it's eternity?

No evidence for the existence of a supernatural realm.

Then again there is no evidence for love and happiness yet they exist.

Look at the center of the earth sometimes. Its a massive magma pit. Seems the perfect place to store the souls of the bad people.

I agree and I think it's wonderful we finally agree on something, this thread along with all of your other posts and threads should be merged into the Dump Pile of Crazy Troll Posts.

This action is under consideration by the staff.

What is your evidence against Valhalla, Mt Olympus, Asgard, Camelot, or Atlantis?

Individuals can experience love and happiness.  No one has experienced Hell, other than metaphorically.  There's also no evidence of souls, except as a figure of speech.

The concept of eternal torment is completely inconsistent and antithetical to the concept of a loving God. You can't have both.  Either hell does not exist or God is not love.

Or vampires.  Is Sister Agatha suggesting I go around with garlic in my pocket, just in case?

And why do theists so often ask for evidence of a negative?  Are they unaware that's a logical impossibility?  I realize you don't have the answers to these questions, No One, I just get frustrated writing posts to brick walls sometimes.

Catholic sisters take a vow of poverty, so I expect SisterAgatha won't touch that penny.

Or HE  isn't as omnipotent as HE wants us to believe and HE just makes me use such big fonts to perpetuate the illusion.

HE has no say at Satan's barbecue.

Now now, you knew I'd take that as challenge.
You are complicit in the wrongs I'm about to do.
