Aren't you making a simple error in thinking here? You equate belief with truth, which is clearly incorrect. People believe all sorts of things that aren't true. You know this - you think all religious people are wrong despite their beliefs. What you BELIEVE about hell will do nothing to change its existence/non-existence; it is either a real place or its not. In the interests of accurate thinking shouldn't you retitle this pic "If Islam is true.... If Christianity is true.... But if I am correct..."?
It's rhetorical, David.
Ah, yes, rhetoric...the art of persuading by using style as a mask for lack of substance...its sure is a great example of that!
Tsk. Tsk. Selectively interpreting reality in a way that makes you feel good, even against a more rational explanation. I guess the 'Christian' status in your profile is legit. =p
The definition of 'rhetoric' at play in the context of my initial response.
I'm afraid I can't tell if you are joking or not at this point. If you are, then there's no sense typing an explanation. If you are not, then I can humor your request.
