← Effect of the concept of hell on children

Puff of Logic, thanks for the very good topic.

The whole concept that hell awaits the skeptics is ridicules to me. Look at it this way:

There is an all powerful supreme being that cloaks itself in mystery just to severly punish any person who doesn't believe.

What kind of dysfunctional, co-dependent god do people believe in? Think it through for yourself, it makes no sense.

What's more likely:

1) That god eradicates all evidence of it's own existence for the sole purpose of punishing people who doubt it's existence.


2) There is no god. Threats of damnation are just a way to intimidate people into conformity.


On a related point, if there is one true omnipresent god, how exactly does one pray to the wrong god? How would that even be possible?
