Firstly, to "The Hard Truth." People have claimed for centuries that signs of the end times have come to pass and that biblical prophecies have been fulfilled. In American history alone there are at least three evangelist preachers that claimed, based on the current events, that the end times were nigh, and even calculated an exact date of Jesus' return, the rapture, and Armageddon. And they were all wrong.

The problem with the vague, end-times prophecies that exist in the bible, is that 1. They're VERY vague. This makes them very open to interpretation. And they have been interpreted countless times and often used as political fear devices.
2. Once again, they're stolen from a pre-dating mythology from a society very far north of the hebrews that well pre-dates the bible or anything in it. The Armageddon story is a blatant rip-off of the Norse Ragnarok.
3. This is in response to everyone who has so far and will bring up biblical prophecies regarding enemies of the church. Anyone smart enough to create the biggest scam in human history would also be smart enough, having clearly thought ahead, to put provisions to make sure that the myth maintained an air of power, authority, and truth/reality. It's obvious that given enough time society would eventually establish some sort of mass freedoms. And with those freedoms, the loss of fear of death for heresy would come. So, what better way to ensure those who have been blinded by a traditionalized myth with a fear-based control method remain believers when the real truth becomes evident than to include in the holy text that people will try to destroy the church during the end times? Think about it. Common sense. Even back then when they claimed the world was flat and the center of the universe, these authors clearly had more common sense than that. They were criminal masterminds, after all, and should be considered such.

To Terrie Trip.

Fortunately we don't need to have been there, although your argument about having not been there works against you just as much as it does for you.

Secondly what gives your religion is power is what gave all mighty emperors their power: Fear. Once the Catholic Church became a political power, it was punishable by torture or death to speak out against the church. Watch Zeitgeist. Even Catholic leaders knew there was no real truth to the religion whatsoever.

To Mac and Cindy Cranston. I've read the bible multiple times. I'm reading it again currently on and off as well as a direct English translation of the Torah. I wouldn't say anything without knowing what I'm talking about first.

I would like to state for the record that I have done all my own research and come to my own conclusions. I never needed anyone to whisper doubts into my ear. Christianity never sat right with me in the slightest. Parents tend to tell their kids that Santa Claus, the Tooth Fairy, and the Easter bunny are real, along with, of course, God and Jesus. I'm sure a lot of you might think back to this in your own childhood. Once their kids turn maybe, 10-12, they tell them none of those are real aside from maybe God and Jesus. If anyone who's gone through this was smart they'd figure that these aren't real either. My mother never did this;she told me right out that Santa, the Tooth Fairy, and the Easter Bunny weren't real, although she never really needed to. Even as a Child I had enough common sense to know what was realistic and what wasn't. It's sad that you all didn't. "Adults with imaginary friends are stupid."-Anonymous

I have found the truth. Plain and simple. I and people like myself are simply trying to rescue you all from your delusions and false hopes.

Finally, to George West, I've thought long and hard about "what if I'm wrong." Given what I know about God and Lucifer from reading the bible more than once, I'd have to say I'd rather kick it with Lucifer, who had the courage to stand up to a cruel Tyrannical being than be around a Child with an ant farm and a Magnifying Glass that's afraid of his little ants (god.) In the entire book Satan/Lucifer only kills ten people. TEN, in the entire book. God kills over two million. Mostly for ridiculous reasons that would, if the same killings were done by any human in modern society, be considered cold-blooded hate crimes.

Also, let's not forget that gaining knowledge was the "original sin." I'm sorry but I prefer to be educated and knowledgeable than be ignorant and naive.

I find it funny that you all say the same, automated responses I hear on a regular basis. You should read each other's comments and realize how much of a brainwashed hive mind you are.

Besides, even if I am wrong, who's to say that Christianity is right about the afterlife? For all you know I could go to Valhalla or the Elysian feilds.
