    See what most people, non-believers, especially the rabid strain, don't understand is that if genuine Christianity is totally bogus, once we die, we literally have had nothing to lose and, in any case, have lived a beautiful life.

    If Christianity did not exist, civilization at this point would probably have died out. Seriously!

    plus the assumption that anyone not believeing in your god....is an atheist is rather wrong.

    People were around long before Christianity and will be around long after religion is finally foregone for reason.

    There is far more to Christianity than believing in a "god". Seriously... An educated consumer is God's best customer. Remember that.

    p.s. You're awesome Bones, in any case! Nobody's perfect... yikes! :)

    that's funny.

    I didn't realize god was selling anything. And if by educated, you mean those that are so eager to abandon reason for eternal life in paradise, then maybe you're right.

    Then we're wrong. Trying to use a mock threat to change someones belief system is silly.

    It's already a clearly stated guarantee that I'm on the fastest rocket ship TO hell, so I think burning is probably a given, given the fine pictures of hell I've seen...
