← Effect of the concept of hell on children

Sounds like what you are experiencing is nothing more than the traumatic result of years of brainwashing and indoctrination.

Personally, I don't get it. The concept of heaven and hell are utterly ludicrous, so self-serving and clearly made-up human constructs.

  • First who are suppose to go to Hell. Non-Believers? So that makes what, 75% of the earth's population, you'll be in good company already.

  • You have to have faith first and foremost, and ask for forgiveness and you will be forgiven. How bloody convenient. Now ponder about the morality of that. Do you really want to side with such crass self-serving nonsense? The middle ages want their morality back.

  • What is hell anyway. You will suffer the most horrible tortures forever and ever and ever! Seriously? Funny how that sounds exactly like the kind of story one would make up to keep everyone in line.

  • What is heaven then. Eternal bliss. The best thing ever, and also, forever and ever and ever. ever. Yeah right, give me a break... Besides who'd want to spend an eternity with Christians while constantly on coke, forever. No thank you...

  • It's hogwash, plain and simple. Religions are viral diseases.
