 Athetist what would you say to God? (32)

Athetist what would you say to God?

When it has been your time to go, and you're standing at the pearly gates of Heaven.

God asks you "Why should i let you enter?"

What would you say? What could you possibly say? Whatever you say would it even matter?

Will you just accept the fact that you are going to go to the underworld where you belong? You pathetic Atheists. Or will you try to suck up like a little school girl?

I think we all know the answer, but i would like your perspective.

If there is a god, and that god is benevolent, then my belief or worship of that god is unnecessary for obtaining heaven, if it exists.

If that god requires belief and worship as a condition of heaven, then it isn't a benevolent god, and so whatever heaven must be, if it exists, is not a paradise but a dictatorship. I would pity those who live within it.

The principle of requiring faith in god as necessary to salvation is a form of salesmanship. It is designed to exploit you into choosing whatever church presents this to you first, essentially it exists so you buy into the dogma.

I'd ask him why he has a penis. I know why I have one, but why does he have one? He does have one, doesn't he?

Well, if I were talking to God, I would like to discuss stuff. If he asks "why would i let you in" I would start a convo about how I'm not a bad person.

Now, if living a moral life that the current Conservatives want is the only way to get into Heaven, than I'm fucked. But if not hurting anyone and just being a decent person is what you need, than I'm good.

It all comes down to how much of a dick God is (if he exists, of course).

Well... heaven's sorting system must be insane if I got up to the pearly white gates while supposed to be in hell.

However do you know what I would say to him? I would ask him three questions.

1.) How many people actually got into your heaven? (As I am curious what a 'true' believer is like, each follower of the faith thinks they are a 'true believer)

2.) I have done minimal sin, and I have done much charity work; so can I just be let onto the first circle of Dante's hell if I can't get into heaven? (good enough for me, and not as much of a dictatorship. Plus I get to speak with many great people over the course of history)

3.) Can you please explain the nature of these people, and do they get into heaven? (If they do it's not the place for me, if they don't I can rest peacefully knowing that they are either suffering in purgatory or hell)

I would then thank god for answering the most important questions on faith, and go wherever I am needed.

Side: First circle here I come

I would ask him to go to my debate and explain why he deserves to be praised.

Oh, look, another person who joined this site for the sole purpose of perpetuating their personal vendetta against people who don't believe the same thing as they do.

This should be fun.

Please forgive me for being so stupid and not believing in you. Is it too late to ask your forgiveness? Please let me into heaven. I don't want to spend eternity in hell.

Tell me, would you wish to live under Kim Jong-un? That's what your god is like, an eternity in North Korea.

If you are atheist, then you do not believe there is a god so there is no point in worrying about what they would say.

I would rather spend an eternity in Hell than be near a God who would send me there. At least the Devil doesn't pretend to love his creatures, right?

I'd basically tell him that his whole system down stairs is fucked up and if I go to hell, I go to hell. No use crying about it at that point.

But though I am unsure about my beliefs on a God, I AM sure that there is no heaven or hell.

Side: A benevolent god doesn't require faith

I didn't ever not believe in you, God. I just never believed that it was right to assume things that I can't proove with my own eyes. Nonetheless, without being a follower of Judaism or Christianity or Islam, I still did nothing but work for furthering my fellow man while at the same time juggling a battle against a chronic illness and loving my mate to the fullest extent my feeble emotions possibly could.

I do not regret loving science and being interested in other myths which I had no idea of knowing whether you were amoungst them or not, because ultimately, I still believed in you in the sense that I believed in the greater good and love of all humanity as being the dominate force on the planet Earth.

That is what you are in the end, right? Love? I hope so.

Now may I please come inside?

I'm not even an Atheist, and I would collect my thoughts and then calmly tell God to "suck it". ROFLMFAO

I would first be wondering: if this hell thing is eternal, why the whole promenade through life and the really unnecessary flaunting of the gates of heaven before being cast into hell. It seems really petty. For an infallible guy it seems he wastes a lot of time.

I'd ask him/her/it where he/she/it came from and why he/she/it left so much evidence around to disprove his/her/it's book. I'd also like to ask him/her/it why at all would he/she/it pre-determine peoples lives and then punish them for the actions that he/she/it set in motion in the first place. As this is sooooo unfair. Nasty God.

When it has been your time to go, and you're standing at the pearly gates of Heaven.

God asks you "Why should i let you enter?"

"Why should I care if you let me?"

What would you say? What could you possibly say? Whatever you say would it even matter?

You assume everyone is so frightened of a tyrant as you. I'll happily spend my eternity in whichever hell the fevered Christian imagination has dreamed if the alternative is an eternity with this silly caricature of a god Christians spend their days fearing.

God will send you to hell, he won't even preach or talk to you.

Why should he? You are already the weakness of the weak.

You're too under. You cant be put back. It's over, it is over.

The Flying Spaghetti Monster will just tickle you for eternity, he won't even preach or talk to you.

--

Did that little speech scare you? Are you ready to accept the Flying Spaghetti Monster's rules and live by them? No? Is it because you don't believe the FSM exists at all, and therefor you can't possibly feel even an ounce of apprehension at the thought of being punished by him? Because people don't generally fear retribution from things they believe to be completely fictional? Oh. Hmm. I wonder if there is a comparison we could draw between that and you trying to frighten atheists with threats of hell. I am sure if we think awhile we could come up with something.

(PS: I thought God was forgiving or something. My bad, I guess. Next time he calls you up and tells you exactly what his thoughts, feelings, and intentions are, please let him know a lot of people seem to be making that mistake and maybe he could do something to set them straight.)

I wonder if you are simply really young (arrogance), or mildly retarded (stupidity).

No body here really cares what you think.

A trick question, you say?! Oh my goodness, you totally pulled the wool over my eyes. Boy, is my face red! But I guess I owe you, seeing as your unique combination of juvenile chatspeak and vindictive smugness finally shown me the error of my unbelieving ways. And your obvious glee at the prospect of someone else's eternal torture? So inspiring! So convincing! It really is the only evidence I needed to realize there just has to be an all-knowing, all-loving, all-forgiving God that would have sent me to the underworld without a second thought if I used this thing called skepticism that he invented and then gave me.

That does it! I am going right down the nearest church and demanding they sign me up right then and there! Well, that is, as soon as you tell me what sect of church to look for. I sure hope Lutheran is okay because it's the closest. That Presbyterian one is next to the frozen yogurt shop, though...and I always did think the Franciscan Renewal Center was pretty. Oh, well, anyway, please hurry up and give me the right answer! I sure wouldn't want to choke on my dinner tonight and go to Hell because I haven't been correctly dedicated or baptized or circumcised or what the fuck ever.

Haha, you Atheists don't understand ;)

What do we not understand?

You guys are so easy. And pathetic LOL.

Because using LOL is not pathetic, yea?

It was a trick question, God won't even talk to you

Why would you ask a question like this in a debate forum? I think you don't like the answers, and why would God not talk to us?

you go straight to the underworld. GG. LOLz.s.s

Underworld are class, sounds good, cant wait. Abbreviations make you sound like a turd.

A benevolent god doesn't send people to hell. A god that sends people to hell is a tyrant and living under it would not be a heaven.

Satan. Lucifer. Or if you're more fearful and/or old school, the Devil.
