This is one reason why I don't like religion. I, as an atheist, am being threatened with eternal torment and violence that far surpasses any suffering that we know of on earth. All this for the crime of not agreeing with Christianity, Islam, etc. That, factually, is petty and childish.

If I ever happen to get into a religious argument, I've made up one single argument that I will stand behind, and it goes like so:

''You think there is only the one god, and only your religion is ''right''? Think about it this way; if you were born into an Islamic family, you would most likely be raised to the ways of their belief and the ways of the religion. Say you were the same person and as faithful to your beliefs as you are now. If a person came by you, a practicer of your religion as of now and he told you about the ways of that religion, would you not think he is wrong and you are right? Would you not deny his word and praise yours?''

This is one of the biggest reasons I'm an atheist. I remember years ago I thought: If I were born in a different country, or even a different time, I would worship completely different gods, but still think I was right.

I am Christian,and i was never taught that everybody who are not Christians will go to hell.Priests that i know always told that no matter what religion you are,it is important to be a good man.Doesnt matter if you are moslem,or pagan or buddhist or anything.

The teachings of Christianity say that those who do not follow Jesus Christ will burn in hell for eternity. If you have some individual interpretation that involves everyone living in a fairy world no matter what you believe in, then more power to you. I'm questioning the established Christian teachings, which say what I have addressed in the question. I don't know what ******** your priests are feeding you, but if they are Christian "priests" what they are saying is wrong under the guidelines of the church.

And to address the other part of your statement, I never said you shouldn't be a good person. In fact, you are supporting my argument. Everyone should be good, and therefore if you see nothing wrong with millions going to Christian hell because they were born into a different religion by no fault of their own, with the same blind belief you have, there is clearly some moral flaws.

Once again, I am not pertaining what I am saying to your belief that everyone goes to heaven if they are good (which is quite adorable and childish I might add), but to the fundamentals of Christian beliefs and values.

Flawed argument - assumes everyone always accepts the religious beliefs of their family, doesn't take conversions into account.

It seems like people love to take the bible into an extreme literal sense. The bible was written as poems, proverbs, and metaphors for a reason. It was, and always will be open to interpretation. And people truly do enjoy portraying "God" as a selfish brat. If the god you believe in is all about being righteous, and loving, and all understanding. Then why make it to where people who were born into other religious cultures go straight to hell just because they don't believe in Jesus? It is an eternally redundant ideal that contradicts the idea of god himself.

I was taught (and these arent my beliefs) that salvation is something given by God. Whether it is fair or unfair that one recieves salvation is not under question. The FACT is that one who believes in Jesus' salvation will go to heaven and those who dont will go to hell (again, not my beliefs, just what I'd been told). If its any consolation, if you believe in hell as according to Dante, the first level of hell is reserved for righteous infidels, and is actually not that bad (look it up if you want, im too lazy to post a link).
