In the endless and tiresome bickering/debating over god's existence why is it that theists are not attempting to substantiate their claims by finding heaven and hell?
Am wondering whether any of you have known a theist to do so? Ever hear of a theist becoming a physicist/astronomer so that she can find out about heaven? Does heaven emit something that we can detect? Black holes do. Why not heaven? Do souls travel at the speed of light? How long does it take to reach heaven once a person has died? Does heaven expand to accommodate the newbies? Does it have a physical basis like any other planet? Is it ethereal? If so, what does that mean?
And hell is a lot closer, at least potentially, right? So do geologists/theists make an effort? Are they using instruments to monitor inner earth?
And if no such efforts are being made what does that indicate about the state of mind of believers? We all know that believers in Bigfoot and Spacemen and others such look for evidence. They know that the rest of us will deny their claims without it? Why is heaven and hell different?
