a couple of thoughts on immortality

Hi - This is an abbreviated version of something I tried to post a week or two ago when ning apparently was giving this site a hard time.  Note that I wasn't raised Christian and so only know the framework stuff that is popular culture:--------------------------The mythology of Christianity (and perhaps some other beliefs) seems to involve some sort of "damned to hell for eternity" maximum penalty sentence. What sort of theoretically "good" being could possibly advocate for or cause such a…See More

"Hi Michael - thanks for the thoughtful points.  I put in response to a couple of other folks, I think there's some merit to questioning whether there is any need for an Atheist mezuzah idea of any sort.  For one thing, for me, I…"

Hi - the other day I 1) was unable to post a message to these forums (tried several times, more than one browers).  It just kept taking me back to a site login screen. 2) was unable to post a message to the site administrator to see if I could get support  on this point - same problem (Catch 22) - kept taking me back to a blank form. 3) posted reluctantly on the facebook group as to this problem and received no response.[edited]I found now a minute ago that I was able to post, so perhaps this…See More
