The topic of NDE and proof of hell, again?
Sure...
Yes...
Of course...

OK.
Thank you...
Good bye.

This is manga around here:  :snicker:

Manga, why do you like to hang out with us so much?  :lol:

Same advice I give to everyone who shows up here who is absolutely obsessed with a specific topic:

Just stop. Chill. Relax. Interact with the forum on a casual level. Watch and listen and learn of other ideas.

If you can't stop, seek mental health care. This is not normal, it is not healthy, and it will not go away on its own.

This thread by manga looks an awful lot like this other thread on a totally different forum by pork222. ::)

Do pork and mango go well together? :notsure:

They pair beautifully.  Explains a lot here.

manga, believe whatever you want as is doesn't seem you actually wish to entertain explanations for the phenomena you are discussing.  You seem to be more driven by confirmation bias.  If you want to believe in life after death, heaven, hell, and so forth, fine but don't keep coming here and wasting people's time with the above discussion pattern.  It's ridiculous and frustrating.

manga's explanation of his behavior has been that he doesn't want to believe in Hell, but he's so terrified of the thought of it that he can't stop worrying about it maybe being real.

In addition to therapy, which I think is an excellent and practical idea, some of us have suggested just going along with Xtianity and taking whatever steps they recommend to avoid Hell.  He'll still be obsessed but with any luck he'll be less frightened, which is always good.  I would suggest Catholicism -- they're the original Xtians, after all, and generally seem more accepting of worshipers having doubts. 

But I don't think manga will make any more use of that than of any of our other suggestions.

Yes I can see them pairing quite nicely together,..in fact how about tacos of spicy shredded pork, topped off with a nice mango salsa and some shredded goat cheese?

Fucking Yummy!
Every taco is hand rolled with exotic Mexican spices by genuine Mayan Virgins.
Or. Carlos, depending on who's available.

But what if manga believes in the wrong god? In the wrong version of Xtianity? Then manga is still going to hell!

His obsession seems entirely focused on the Xtian Hell, so even if introduced to the concepts of Naraka, Helheim, Tartarus, Mictlan, etc., I don't think he'd consider those worth wasting time on.  A pity he can't take that one step further.

Still, which Christian hell? Catholic, Protestant, Mormon, Evangelical, Baptist... if manga chooses the wrong version of Christianity... hoo boy.

sigh  You're right.  There's so much hair-splitting in religion.

Maybe manga is doing this for attention? :chin:
But, uh...well there it is.

It's possible. However I think that he or she is just troubled and can't stop obsessing over NDEs, the afterlife and hell.

Maybe that is a concern and response she gets from posting these ndes on Athiest forums reinforces her desire for attention?

There are a lot of ways to get loads more attention on more frequent and sustainable basis than posting about the same obscure topic over and over.
