Arborman495 - If the Christians are wrong in the end, nothing lost. I will end up as a butterfly of just cease to exist.
But if everyone else is wrong, they will spend all of eternity in hell
But you can not go to hell if you do not believe in hell.
Hell is something christians have to believe in, it gets forced upon them as a kid. This is what you have to believe in nothing else exsist is what is getting forced upon you. Where as i've growen up open to all options. Ive had no belief forced upon me, ive chosen/decided what is more logically plausable/possible. What theory makes more sence and what has more evidence.... That would be evolution. But because ive had no belief forced upon me i dont get told whats right and wrong and told to believe it, Im open. like for example some people who dont believe in christianity believe in Hell/Heaven. But people who believe in christianity have no option what else to believe in. Since im open and i take science as being the correct theory i can choose. There is no evidence hell exists same with heaven,god,Jesus. Someone early pointed out that man is flawed yet he made the bible. The bible is a book written by a bunch of believers that thought the earth was flat etc. Back when it was written by these men(im not saying jesus told 'em so as that is just weird) there was probably no other very influental religion for those type of people. So they 'make' one up. Its all make believe, Your basing your theory and beliefs on a book unconfirmly writeen by a bunch of wise men. Hell i could of done the same back then. The reason they put such 'out of the world' ideas in the book is because no one at the time had any proof to proove them otherwise. people wanted to believe these new ideas. They proably didnt think technology would exist and they could be proven wrong,so by writing such wacky ideas they attracted a large crowd which they could eventually take control over like they have and force beliefs on them like they also have. By writing a book about stuff people already knew was true they would achieve very little, but by writing a book on new ideas and giving people hope and getting rid of fear, making them safe and secure and having someone watching over them always, gave them a chance to believe,a chance of hope and security that they would be safe, and new ideas always appeal to people, even today. Thats why new authors/books having new concepts and new beliefs giving a chance for people too believe a chance of hope that it could be true, are very sucessfull(Today - Harry Potter, 2000years ago - Bible) unlike what other religions had done at the time or place.
