So I was curious how do you handle this topic when a friend brings this up? A acquaintance of mine said this to me and we got into a discussion about it. She kept hammering on how "SAD IT IS! SOPHIE! SERIOUSLY! HOW FUCKING SAD!"


I simply replied, "How sad that you have a imaginary friend that you really think cares about you. When millions of children are starving to death. Seriously, how fucking sad."

So got so flustered. She almost imploded in on herself. It was glorious.

What about you? How would you handle this topic?

"All Dressed Up and Nowhere To Go"

I wouldn't have it any other way. Heaven and Hell both sound like regular shitholes.
lol

That is a simple and eloquent response! I like it!
Indeed. In Heaven you're forced to praise God, worship him, sing his praises, and eternally love him. That sounds like utter torture. Your free will is obliterated, and your uniqueness and sense of self is lost and gone. In Hell, obviously, you're tortured for all eternity because you had a brain and used it to think critically and rejected the claim that there's a god, or you were born homosexual, or you ate too much cake and enjoyed it (gluttony), or you thought your next door neighbor's wife was hot, or something else equally silly.

I'd rather cease to exist and rot in the ground unknowingly than exist in either of those two fairytale lands of horror.
I saw something on Twitter the other day. I don't recall the exact wording. Something about how people can barely stand to spend an hour at church on a Sunday being thrilled to spend an eternity somewhere similar.

But, the pity party people throw is certainly frustrating. It is the same as when people tell me I'm an atheist because "something" happened to me and I just need top be straightened out. It is very insulting.

Be thankful that you have a life, and forsake your vain and presumptuous desire for a second one." — Richard Dawkins
Most people can't bear to sit in church for an hour on Sundays. How are they supposed to live somewhere very similar to it for eternity?



Yeah I saw that one as well. I love it.
That's it!

And you'll have all of your relatives nearby!

The molestation is divine!
Death is sad.
Pretending there is a magical man in the sky that will give you another life after death is sad and pathetic.
Here lies a theist. All dressed up, thinking he's going somewhere.
Much better!
Excellent!!
