You can't go to heaven!

From Not My God







I have missed this blog! Between winter holidays, Andy getting badly injured, planning a wedding and miscellaneous happenstances, I haven’t posted in a while, though I religiously (heh, heh) have posted every Thursday.



It’s no secret that I have big love for the HBO series Big Love, which I discussed in my posts about Mormonism. The opening credits end with Bill, the husband, meeting… Continue

Answer me this...

I wrote this blog on Myspace, intended for christians to read. I have posted it here to help other newly converted atheists in their quest for helping other theists to realize that God, in the biblical term, cannot exist.





Below are a series of questions. These are questions that I had asked toward the end of my christianity, and was never given a good answer for any of them. I challenge other believers in a god to ask these questions as well. If these questions could be… Continue

Pascal's Wager: Why our 'Faith' is far stronger than any Christian's.

If you aren't familiar with Pascal's Wager, it essentially argues that you should believe/honor/flatter God if only to hedge your bets. If you're wrong and there's no afterlife, nothing lost.

On the face of it that actually makes a lot of sense. I for one would rather not spend eternity burning in hell, so… Continue

For anyone not quite caught up, "apatheism" is a portmanteau of "apathy" and "theism" (or "atheism", I… Continue

Hell: grand inauguration spring 2008

Earlier this year Pope Benedict XVI said, "hell is a place where sinners really do burn in an everlasting fire, and not just a religious symbol designed to galvanise the faithful". By contrast, in 1999 Pope John Paul II said hell was, "the ultimate consequence of sin itself. Rather than a place, hell indicates the state of those who freely and definitively separate themselves from God, the source of all life and joy".
