The questions are directed primarily to the followers of the God of Abraham

1. Would you be able to enjoy Heaven knowing that people you love are tormented in Hell ?

2. . How come so many times the all-knowing God doesnt seem to have a clue whats gonna happen ?

3. How do you justify God punishing Adam and Eve for something the did before having any knowledge about good and evil ?

4. What will happen in the Afterlife to the people who never heard about your religion ?

5. How do you justify an infinite punishment for a finite crime ?

Excellent questions! Nice vid presentation, too. You are great on film!

Regarding your questions: I was taught theism as a little girl and believed what I was told. When I developed critical thinking skills, "faith" was no longer a meaningful answer to such unanswerable questions.

The irony of the whole thing is that the questions are never really taken seriously, since only non-believers ask them and persist in getting answers. Asking challenging questions in the first place is considered sinful. If a response such as "We are not to question God's reasons for doing what He does" is not satisfactory to a theist, he or she will more likely be ostracized or worse, rather than taken seriously.

I love it, these are really good questions and most of them are the questions that lead me to my current beliefs. I was Christian Catholic at one point and I believed everything I was told. I even went to Catholic school. One thing I had never realized was that at church, we never really read the Bible. We always had misseletts (I don't think that is how you spell it) in church that had cropped out sections of the bible to tell what stories they decided to read about that day. They pieced together small portions of incomplete paragraphs from the new testament (only) and even went as far as to say that the only part of the Bible that mattered was the part where Jesus came. Everything before that was just BS.

Funny thing about what made me turn completely against organized religions was when I finnally read the entire Bible. I said to myself "wow, I don't remember any of this from church or school. How the hell can you read this book and think 'yeah, I think I'm going to live by this book?' " I just don't understand how you can take old stories from 2000+ years ago from the other side of the world (who don't even follow this book themselves) and decide you are going to try to not only interpret what it is really saying before you understand the culture and what this shit really means.
