If your talking about the post directly above its from The Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy. One of the best atheist radio shows, t.v. shows , and movie's ever made, in my opinion of course. It's a comedy that is quite delightful if you like British humor. Great read with all six books
Well it is kinda relevant as it's a discussion between man and god. There first meeting and the question man asks god which in turn makes him disappear. Was more of a reply to doone just wasn't placed right.
What else, burn in hell? The god of the bible gives you only two choices: either love and worship him or burn in hell forever. Now which choice would you choose? But since the Christian god is omniscient he would know you don't really love him, so you would go to hell anyway, but, what the hell, I'd give it a shot.
Couldn't hurt i guess to try. It might not be all that powerful to begin with. If it was all knowing all seeing then what is the point of life at all. Is their any point to this madness we continue everyday?
Simple answer? Doesn't seem to be any point. The mystery is why anything? of course. What makes life want to live? Even a gnat will flee danger.
What is the mechanism located in living things--a gene?-- that makes them want to survive--for what point? It's maddening to think about it, and we'll all be dead for a long time before anyone has an answer--if there is one. And will the answer make any damn sense? And what is the mechanism that makes us give a damn? Free will--not!
