To my understanding - nowhere in the bible does it say if you don't accept Jesus you are going to hell-nowhere. In fact, nowhere does it say when you die, you go to heaven.
I agree on this. In fact it is this type of disconnect that creates a lot of the discord within and outside christianity. If xians in general behaved more like the early xians (to the extent that they could be referred to as a unit), there'd be a lot less conflict.
In review, chances are if you don't like the teachings of Christ, than chances are you will not be comfortable with others who do or want to spend any lengthy sort of time being around them let alone God ( it would be uncomfortable for you as well as the other person).
Sorry, not to be insulting, but that sentence was torturous. I'm still not really sure what you were saying.
Modern Islam sects/law can be very violent - if you do not accept Mohammad - you are killed as a heretic. To my knowledge there is no other religion 'today" that offers that. Most have and take on a "live and live" viewpoint
Again, I agree at least to the extent that with islam violence seems to be more generally accepted as a means to an end within this era
. Go back a few hundred years or more and you wouldn't really be able to pinpoint a difference in degree of violence, although of course details would differ.
In summary, what was originally presented was on atheism of which directly attacked the absurdity of denying a creative influence of origin of the universe (ie GOD).
Aaaaaaand we're back to this. There is no absurdity, except to someone who has already de facto accepted the existance of a "creative influence". It's a circular argument. If you are already willing to accept the existance of god then of course
god did it. And if there's a god, why would you think the universe was created independantly of the actions of him her? But there's absolutely nothing ipso facto about it. The assumption that a deity exists is an unwarranted assumption based on nothing. Every argument that you can mount against "something from nothing" also applies to god. Every argument you can apply towards "outside the universe" or "always existed" can apply to the multiverse. The difference between your belief and mine is twofold: 1) yours requires one extra assumption -- the existance of a deity -- for which there is no proof, and 2) my belief is pursuable (is that a word?) in terms of mathematics, cosmology, and physics. Yours is not. It dead-ends.
