The cartoon neglected to mention one sure and very important sign of indoctrination, obsessive forum posts about religion.

Philosoraptor once pondered "If humans are meant to trascend seemlessly into another life after death, why do our insticts have us cling to life at all costs?"

Personally, I don't fear death. It's that uncomfortable transitional period that scares the crap out of me.

Very few people fear death until it's looking them in the face.

My post does not contradict your statement in any way.

I agree that the part after the dieing doesn't hold much terror for me, whilst I sit in a heated/air conditioned office, full of hot coffee and home-made biscotti. I think if I had to actually contemplate my imminent demise, my tune might change a bit.

From what I've gathered on everything you've ever posted, it very well should!

Eh, if the only way I can get into heaven is by taking the greatest gift given me by my creator and leaving it in the packaging, something tells me I wouldn't want to hang out with Him anyway. Probably the kind of guy who would tell me I'm listening to an album wrong if I don't like it as much as him. And if the punishment for having the gall to actually use a gift given is an eternity of torment (and I only get a limited time to get it right, anyway), He likely keeps a few other rules unstated because "I totally thought that was obvious to everybody!"

It's nice to see you quote (or paraphrase) an avowed atheist.

Far be it from me to say, but maybe, perhaps, great minds think alike(?)...

...or better yet, it's kind of obvious. Whether you're going to a better world, or not.

Seriously, Eric... What do you think Jesus would tell you about how you act and judge others in his name? Do you think you do a good job of walking in his footsteps, and actually living his message? You often seem to do the exact opposite of what he taught.


Ironically enough... Many atheists actually live IAW his message better than do you... Not talk, but LIVE. The message was not unique to him either, nor to just Xians.

New term for you:
