← The fires of Hell are real and eternal, Pope warns

Bonzai's Avatar Jump to comment 26 by Bonzai

Hell “really exists and is eternal, even if nobody talks about it much any more”, he said.


How does he know?

This beautifully illustrates the religious way of 'knowing'. They don't need to back up their claims with any evidence, all they need is to cite some authority or rather people whom they declare to be authority. Basically they just make up shit as they go along, somehow it becomes respectable because history has a way to lend credibility to something simply because it is old.
