I finally have it all figured out. It’s so simple really. We’re all going to Hell when we die. None of us can get to heaven. Here’s why.
All religions have the concept of Hell. They call it different things, of course, but it’s pretty much the same; a place where souls go when we die unless we believe and follow in our religion. So far, so good.
If you ask them (and I have – a lot) most people will tell you that their religion is not the right one for them, it’s the only right one. That comes across as pretty self-righteous and I don’t buy it but it is understandable. It’s what they’ve been brainwashed into believing. If they don’t think that way, they are part of the group that doesn’t really believe in their religion and will go to Hell. Are you with me so far?
Now consider that there are all these religions that believe this. Do you see how this is developing? Everyone is wrong and going to Hell according to someone else. And they are all correct. They must be – it’ their religion and it’s been right for a long, long time. So if they’re not of your religion, they’re going to Hell. But YOU are THEY to all the others so you are going to Hell too. End of subject.
As for me, I’m not buying it. I don’t buy into the heaven thing either. When you’re dead, you’re dead. You cease to exist. End of it. Game over. People can’t grasp that concept. They have no idea what it’s like to cease to exist so they concocted this soul/heaven/hell thing in an effort to make sense of it all.
Of course I can’t get my head around that nothingness either. But I don’t feel compelled to worry about it. I’m guessing it’s sort of like before I was conceived. I just wasn’t.
