Hi there, Christians! You know how Jesus preached the Old Testament 2000 years ago? Some of you believe that to get into Heaven you have to not only believe in God, but also believe in Jesus, correct? Okay, so let’s look at Judaism. Do Christians who prescribe to Jesus being an element of God believe that all Jews are going to – not Hell like the atheists and homosexuals – but Purgatory, because their beliefs just weren’t up to scratch?
Now let’s take it a step further. Let’s suppose that all Christians are really just nice and lenient folk who let anyone into Heaven from any of the Abrahamic faiths. Let’s suppose that anyone from the founder of Judaism – Abraham – onwards – all right, all right, from Noah onwards. Still not good enough? Okay, from Adam onwards, 4000BC … let’s suppose that the last 6000 years of Jews, Christians and Muslims have all gone to Heaven. Let’s further suppose that the last 6000 years of atheist heathens, suicide cases, gays, and all the rest who didn’t fit the bill, have gone to Hell. Admittedly, that’s a lot of people; the vast majority of Homo sapiens who have ever lived, in fact.
But what about all those who came before God created Adam, revealing himself to the First Man? Okay, some of you are die-hard Creationists, I get that. However, the Catholic Church has accepted Darwinism over the Biblical Creationism myth since the 1950s. So let’s assume that all of that tangible evidence, in the form of fossil remains, carbon-dating, etc. is actually correct. Let’s further accept that the first primates evolved from mammals 60 million years ago.
So what became of +/-59,994,000years of primates? Just because God hadn’t revealed himself to them, does that mean they all went to Hell for being disbelievers? Surely so, since it clearly states all throughout the Bible that anyone who doesn’t believe in God is going straight to Hell.
Let’s take it a bit further back, shall we? Let’s assume that God includes all animals in this zero-tolerance game of his. Imagine if – somehow – an armadillo managed to faintly grasp the concept of God as it was preached to him by some naked, bearded fellow. That armadillo has snagged itself a Gold Pass into Heaven. Sure, it might be the only mammal there, and conversation might be a bit thin on the ground for it, but nonetheless it has the right to be there, because it has embraced God. Hats off to that armadillo.
But what about all the other poor mammals that have lived since the Permian-Triassic Extinction Event? Over 250,000,000 years worth of mammalian life has all gone to Hell, just because it was never privy to knowing God, because God didn’t bother revealing himself to them.
I’ll remind you at this point that there are Christians who insist God created all things. This means those people who accept Darwinism are giving God the royalties for creating all life on Earth. The ironly being that none of them seem to realise how many creatures that is condemning to a second life of eternal torture. Or do animals get into Heaven by proxy? If so, what’s the big beef God has with humans, that he would let all those intellectually inferior lifeforms into Heaven along with all the Christians who also happen to be rapists, pedophiles, cannibals and serial killers, but he won’t let disbelieving humans up there? What an arrogant and obnoxious arsehole he must be.
And what about the reptiles, birds, insects and marine animals that have existed since the Cambrian Explosion 542,000,000 years ago? Tough gig for them guys, as well. No Gold Pass for any of them.
And as for those poor, Godless microbial mats of 3,500,000,000 years ago, and the biogenic graphite of 3,700,000,000 years ago, well, I suppose those guys must the most ancient heathens who ever existed. Well done, my primitive, disbelieving brethren, I’ll see you all down there in the magma ocean in a few years, or decades if I’m lucky.
What staggering arrogance Christians have, who believe, assert and preach that anyone who doesn’t accept and embrace the Christian belief system, not only is going to Hell, but that they deserve an eternity of the worst possible pain and torture imaginable. Oh, blessed truly are the meek, for anyone who isn’t like them will surely inherit the molten core of the Earth, while the bigoted chosen will take to the skies for distant Heaven, somewhere out there between the gaps in science.
This has been another stream-of-consciousness. Thank you.
