In the Christian Scriptures, one of the most common attributes mentioned about Hell is its high temperature:

Luke 16:24: "And he cried and said, Father Abraham, have mercy on me, and send Lazarus, that he may dip the tip of his finger in water, and cool my tongue; for I am tormented in this flame." This is a plea described as coming from an inhabitant of Hell.


Matthew 13:42: "And shall cast them into a furnace of fire: there shall be wailing and gnashing of teeth."



Matt 25:41: "Then shall he say also unto them on the left hand, Depart from me, ye cursed, into everlasting fire, prepared for the devil and his angels." This passage relates to Jesus' judgment of all the world. It describes precisely how Jesus will separate the "sheep" -- those who will spend eternity with God in Heaven -- and the "goats" -- those who will be tortured for all eternity in Hell. The criteria was based on the good works (or lack thereof) of people while they lived on earth. This conflicts with many references in the Christian Scriptures which specify that salvation depends upon one's beliefs, not good works.



Mark 9:43-48: And if thy hand offend thee, cut it off: it is better for thee to enter into life maimed, than having two hands to go into hell, into the fire that never shall be quenched." The reference to fire is repeated three more times in the passage for emphasis.


Revelation 20:13-15: "...hell delivered up the dead which were in them...And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death. And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire."



Revelation 21:8: "But the fearful, and unbelieving ... shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone." Brimstone is sulphur. In order for sulphur to form a lake, it must be molten. Thus, its temperature must be at or above 444.6 °C or 832 °F. That is the boiling point of sulfur.

About 15 years ago I made up my mind it would be an excellent opportunity to get reacquainted with my old friends.

Again, except for like Hitler or Stalin, I just don't see that people do things that merit "eternal" torment.

Hence, my rejection of Christianity.

In the almighty words of George fuckin' Carlin...

When it comes to bullshit, big-time, major league bullshit, you have to stand in awe of the all-time champion of false promises and exaggerated claims, religion. No contest. No contest. Religion. Religion easily has the greatest bullshit story ever told. Think about it. Religion has actually convinced people that there's an invisible man living in the sky who watches everything you do, every minute of every day. And the invisible man has a special list of ten things he does not want you to do. And if you do any of these ten things, he has a special place, full of fire and smoke and burning and torture and anguish, where he will send you to live and suffer and burn and choke and scream and cry forever and ever 'til the end of time!

But He loves you.

I wonder if Valhalla is still open. Never ending feasts and conquest, that's the place to go... or Nirvana, maybe Hades, but the nice part. There's so many choices really, don't even know where to begin.

What if you're wrong?
Someone is going to be wrong in the end....people usually reject something just because they don't want to believe it. There's no proof one way or the other, is there?

Don't harsh my zen, Jen!
To quote Achmed, the Dead Terrorist; nobody said the virgins were going to be female. Or young, for that matter. Or beautiful. Just virgins.
