Does this concept sound depressing to you?

A person is born. This person is brainwashed by their illiterate, ignorant, and bigoted parents into believing that life is meaningless except to worship an all-powerful hypocrite (who could make the world a better place with a snap of his fingers, but chooses not to) and preaches to the people who enjoy their life about how they must repent for their sins and accept this deity or burn in hell after death, and then this person wastes their entire life preaching and not enjoying their life, thinking they will live in heaven with said deity but when they die they just die, and their whole life was wasted.

Sound familiar? This is why I feel pity for the fundies on here who say "the meaning of life is to serve God and decide whether you get into heaven or hell" or "Jesus is the only thing that matters, everything else is second" and all this is based on a contradictory, ignorant, and prejudiced religion that is 2,000 years old.

Is this sad, or would you enjoy the above life?

Update:

pilgrim, I never said all christians are like this. Just the fundies. I am sorry that you felt I was aiming it at all the christians.

Update 2:

Well, it is only 5:00, New Year's Eve isn't celebrated in our country at 5:00.

Update 3:

I never said I didn't believe in God, did I? I said it is sad when people dedicate their entire life to him and say he is the only reason we are alive, and that he is the only thing that matters, etc..

    Sad? Yes it is.

    But I got no problem letting someone else waste their life as long as they bother me.

    How correct you are. The lie that most Christians follow is truly that ignorant and meaningless. Hope fully remarks like yours help those confused persons actually read the bible. Even more than 2,000 years more the bible has not been proved false to its historical or prophecy information. So, when reading the bible,

    a person would actually learn that Jesus would have "bought" a certain number of people that are going to heaven, and hell is not a place of suffering.

    So really because of its accuracy a person can believe in past events, like persons raising up the dead, not just Jesus but older prophets, and the apostles. So is that really possible? Moder medicine is making a lot of advances so its up to a person. But the Bible's purpose is clear, people will live forever on the earth, with many new tasks planed out for them.

    The Bible clearly does not support the false doctrines of humans going to heaven or going to hell after they die. In fact, the Bible does not even support the idea of hell as a fiery burning, everlasting torture place. God is love and a eternal torment is not a character to his nature.

    I do think the false doctrines are a sad way to live because it merely is not even the truth.

    I study the Bible and learned what really happens to people when they die, why there is suffereing in the world, and what God-whose name is Jehovah Psalms 83:18 -had promised to do about these things in the future.

    If you are interested in learning what the Bible really teaches go to this website for a free home Bible study with a live person.

    go to

    www.watchtower.org

    or here is the immediate link to the request

    This is the truth.

    I would not be happy living with the above because it is all a lie.

    I'm a christian, though not a fundie, but I gotta tell you, you most certainly have some major problems. It's New Years Eve, and here you are, professing not to believe in God, but look where you are? Sound a bit off kilter for such an fundie atheist to be spending their New Years Eve on the religion/spiritual section, which they purposedly don't even believe in? Did you forget your meds today or what? Talk about sad, you sound downright pathetic.

    at the same time as i became an atheist, it became more desirable of a secret. I didnt believe it basically ended. I didnt recognize what takes position when we die. possibly it ended, possibly there became something else. I didnt recognize. I nonetheless do not recognize. Is it depressing? some atheists actual do locate it depressing. I undergo in concepts William Shatner declaring he fears that its throughout at the same time as he will die, which probable explains why he's so lively in his previous age. He should be lively until eventually the perfect second apparently. Honesty i hit upon atheists more desirable depressing. you'll under no circumstances hit upon a more desirable racist, sexist, aggresive, suicidal, unfaithful, friendless, annoying human beings. I had no atheists friends at the same time as i became an atheist because I couldnt stand their negativity. continuously crying about a Christmas tree in public or freaking out because they had to stroll previous a church, like it shouldnt be there. They made it really embarassing to be an atheist. Plus maximum Neo Nazis are atheists. that asserts something.

    I see you have it all figured out?

    It would be sad if any of this was true but I personally don't agree with anything you said.

    I am a Fundamentalist Christian and I don't feel my life has been wasted by my believing and obeying God. Would you rather I disobeyed and led a sinful lifestyle committing violent crimes against my fellow man? I think my life could have a much more negative impact on my surroundings than the one I have now.

    My brother is a Fundy and raises his two children that way and they seem to be happy fairly well adjusted kids. My biggest concern is that they are home schooled and socialize only with family and other Fundies and therefor may not be prepared for the "real" world.

    Sounds like you're describing a counterfeit form of Christianity. But

    you do have the responsibility of finding out what your Creator's will is and coming to really know Him on His terms and without a doubt you'll be pleasantly surprised because it will turn out in your best interests.

    Well, please don't waste time feeling sorry for ME. My parents are not "illiterate, ignorant, or bigoted".

    Did you have decent parents?? If so, did they teach you to "enjoy life" no matter what--or did you have rules and boundaries to protect yourself and others?

    You can think of God as the Perfect Father. He loves us so much, he doesn't want us to hurt ourselves by living in sin (lying, stealing, selfishness, murder).

    BTW, God did give us a perfect world, but we(humans)messed it up by doing things our own way--for example-your ideas are your own, not God's. Why would you think you are wiser than the One who made us?

    Depressing and irritating at the same time.

    Kids are easily influenced and brain washed.

    Their parents should give him or her a chance to choose when they get older.
