This post is for Christians only.
This is my first (and probably last) "Be nice to Christians" post. I prefer that only Christians write comments for this post. Non-Christians, also known as normal people, can leave a comment here but only if they are responding to a Christian's comment. Please be nice.
I expect the number of Christians who write a comment here to be zero or very close to zero. Christians avoid pro-reality blogs because they don't want to make Jeebus cry.
If you're a Christian and you write a comment here, please at least try to be civilized. That means no complaining and no Bible thumping.
What I'm trying to do for this post is give Christians an opportunity to justify their beliefs. I ask them to first read this post about heaven and they're welcome to leave a comment there also.
Christians, please understand that I'm 100% certain all Christian beliefs are bullshit. I'm just trying to find out why you believe in these fantasies. I'm also hoping that if you try to justify your beliefs it will make you think, and thinking is the first step towards being a normal person, also known as an atheist.
If this post gets old or if this blog looks like it's dead, please leave a comment anyway. I get an email whenever a comment is published (there is no comment moderation) and I will respond. I will be here until at least the year 2059 when I expect to drop dead at age 110.
This post is not for debates. I don't like debates and that's not what this blog is for. What I'm looking for is a Christian who isn't completely brainwashed and who is willing to consider other ideas. I'm looking for Christians who have the ability and the courage to admit they have been wrong all their life about one thing or everything. If you're brain is cemented shut please don't waste my time.
Non-Christians, if you break my rule and write a comment at this post that is not a response to a Christian's comment, I'm sorry but your comment will be vaporized. (Your comments are welcome at all other posts.)
Christians, to get started, perhaps you could answer this question: Why would anyone who is not a coward believe in heaven?
