Wow that sounds like a tyrannical nightmare.
The idea is you go willingly. Christian hell isn't forever, you just die after that. Perma death. So only slightly worse than you expect as an atheist.
It has to have a logical understanding. Can I be in two places at once in heaven?
Since you don’t have a physical body in heaven, you probably can. What is your definition of “logical”?

I was thinking that. Wasn’t that Robbin Williams movie like that?
How can it be beyond our imagination if we all are aware of it?
No one returned from heaven to tell us how it was. We are aware of heaven because God and Jesus told us about it and that it is a sinless world.We can't even imagine how bad hell it is. Even if all possible atrocities have been written and said about it.There are divine places to which mortals like us have no access with their eyes, ears, or thoughts.
That’s gotta be an Imagine Dragons song or something.
So what is it then? Not paradise then...
But game theory states we both can’t win equally. So how’s heaven real?
But did the bible (or Christianity in general) claim that heaven follows the rules of game theory?
Its not a rule. Its just an observation. Can I exist in two places in heaven?
Theory, rule, whatever. The whole idea of a concept like heaven is that it's beyond any earthly (i. e. physical) observation. Just like the concept of God. Isn't it?
So can I exist in two places at once in Heaven?
I suppose so?
Didn’t answer it remotely, but thanks.
Actually, I did.
You wouldn’t want anything
Accept to praise God, and sing Hallelujah!!!
Actually a psychic told my family member that my dead aunt wished my cousin and I were closer.. that it upset her. So I guess they do still want things in that nature
I would advise you to use more critical thinking.
Nah I’ll just avoid your religious questions for now on
I’ve been thinking after getting an idea of what you mean with your mother wanting to be with you but you feeling indifferent about it. I have the same feelings about that for reasons myself. Good question. I just don’t think about it though. I also think there are different levels of paradise up there
And you can find each other. But I’m sure your mother knows how you feel. Basically I look at heaven as a clean slate and I’ll have selective people I would want to be around with more. Probably my soul mate.
“I just don’t think about it.”Why religion survives over intelligence.
Have we crossed paths on here before? If so, did I piss you off?
I don’t think so. But no. Sorry if making fun of ridiculous faith hurts you.
When I said that I don’t think about it, what I really meant is that I don’t dwell on it. You can’t get hurt trying to convince a non believer that heaven exists anyway. I’d be an atheist if I didn’t encounter a few angels and miracles in my life too. I don’t blame you
Well... then I’d ask, with all the mind tricks, optical illusions and hallucinations science has proven exists, how can you tell your Angel experiences from that?
I almost died in a car crash and it appeared to me when I was about 6 years old. I have dreams of them. I get ringing and humming in my ear and I don’t have tinnitus (I was checked), I’ve seen demons in pictures and lots of haunted stories too.
Because I believe, I’m very sensitive to energy or I feel more susceptible to signs and warnings.
My very religious Catholic aunt is the same way. Her mother Mary holy water font on the wall shed tears one day.
I sound silly so I’ll stop but just know I’m a believer
Read Angels in my Hair, it’s based on a true story
Then that must mean it happened!
I have no proof and my atheist friend was blind to a picture I showed him. It’s like the devil doesn’t want him to believe so he made him blind to it. The demon was behind him in the picture. I showed a priest, he saw it, and a few family members and my Catholic friend that gave them the chills. This guy read the Bible inside out and he hasn’t been convinced more that a God or afterlife exists. He has stacks of George Carlin books he’s read. I pray for him because he is a good guy, but he has a few demons. It’s ones like this who can be saved because they simply do not know but he lives a good life and volunteers.
But he’s not perfect
No one is. I just don’t understand why God gave me the privilege to experience things and not everyone, because like I said, and with all the pain in this world, how can you fathom the fact that God would allow it? I still and always question this. My Catholic aunt thinks I don’t believe because I hound her with questions that she simply cannot answer. It doesn’t make sense to me
She answers but it pisses me off because it’s not convincing enough for me to explain to other people.
But once you believe, there’s this warmth and peace that wraps around you that is unexplainable
If you were born in India, wouldn’t you be Hindu? Why is geography a variable if Christianity is the one true religion?
Is there some hidden meaning in there? I was brought up Catholic until I realized I can believe what I want. I now consider myself agnostic
Of course any child is easily forced and brainwashed to believe whatever their parents believe
Agnostic, leaning on the edge of Catholicism *
Anon, please don't embarrass others.
@sadMeester are we the same?
@sadMeester so am I embarrassing my people or the asker?
Your people. Majorly. Consider your words more carefully in the future please
I remember that birdy picture...
@meeseGomoo was my old username.
@sadMeester I just messaged you!
Hi everyone who comes across my moments! I don’t mean to embarrass you! I have a lot of questions myself and super confused about what I believe! I’m not trying to educate anyone or turn people away to believe or no believe! I’m just being sincere about my experience and What I believe so take no offense! Please and thank you. @oddbeme you ignored my DM xoxo
Comments* not moments
Not believe* no no believe
They really should allow us to edit our words ( at least 5 minutes within making a comment)
Philosophically speaking, eternal paradise for everyone isn’t possible. I’d want paradise without my mother. My mother would want paradise with me. See the conflict?
You’ll haunt me?
What if my paradise is to be without my mother, but my mother’s paradise is to be with me?
I would say it was your destiny to have this soul as your mother on the earth plane, there was a good reason for it which you'll only find out when you go back to spirit,,,
The Bible doesn’t say it’s paradise?
