God and Heaven

If you think about it, Heaven is a ridiculous concept.

Let's for the moment assume that there is a Judeo-Christian god, and that the system really is set up like advertised: if you're a moral, upstanding Christian and follow all the rules and yada yada, you go to Heaven.

This all sounds nice and fairy tale-like, but let's look at it from God's perspective. Most of his time -if not all of it- is spent watching people die, deciding if he likes them or not, and taking the ones he likes and putting them in Heaven, while tossing the ones he doesn't like into the firey pits of Hell.

Let's put aside the fact that this is incredibly immature behaviour, particularly for a deity. "I don't like you because you didn't like me enough, therefore I'm going to barbecue you for eternity..." But we're putting that aside. What God wants is basically minions, worshipping him and being all nice and boring for eternity in Heaven.

If this was the whole point of existence, why didn't he just create the minions all miniony in the first place? Why go through the whole charade of life and free will and all of that?

You know what? If this god did exist, I'd go right up to him, flip him off, then go hang out in Hell with all the cool people. I live in Puerto Rico, I'm used to heat.

personally i like to think if there IS a heaven, i don't think there'd be JUST heaven and hell - how could there be? there are so many different levels of good and evil, you'd have the catholics bustin on the reformed drug addicts in heaven, and vice versa. god i think would be much cooler than the catholics make him out to be. of course this is in MY world where i'm rich and thin, so who knows? nobody knows until we die - so why do people stand so true about their religion? i guess it gives them something to believe in, and adds purpose to their lives. fine with me, but leave it at that and leave everyone else alone.

but yeah if heaven's like htat i'll be down in hades with ya.

It's fucked up. I mean, think about it. Let's again pretend there is a god of the judeo-christian variety. Basically life is a contest to see whether we go to Heaven or Hell. But we didn't ask to enter this contest. And if we refuse to participate, we lose by default.

God = sadist.

that's an interesting way to look at it. i always figured he was a sadist of some sort.
