    No, it's a silly concept. About as silly as the concept that when the electrical impulses in our brains fizzle out at death, that we somehow transform into some kind disembodied conciseness that no longer requires a brain to house it.

    As comforting as the idea of ones individual consciousness somehow existing after the death of the brain may be to some people, there isn't the slightest evidence to suggest that's actually the case. Wishful thinking by primates just intelligent enough to contemplate our own death.

    The. God could have had a hand in causing starvation etc. it's great he gets all the credit and none of the blame. I've been watching a baseball game today and I think I know the answer why God is in helping those in the bush dying of starvation, he's with the baseball players. You should see them thanking him when they get a hit.I want to why they don't blame God when they strike out

    Then you're denying a nearly 2000 year old part of Christian dogma.

    Ms. Benji.

    I believe that hell is not a physical nor metaphysical place, but rather, distance from God. The closer you are to God, the more you are in paradise. The farther you are, the more you are in hell.

    Even the meteor who was responsible for the extinction of the dinosaurs, could have been considered "hell" for the dinosaurs, but was a necessity in order to allow the mammals to flourish.. which brought the inventor of hell, humans, into existence.
    All of natures events have a purpose even if it is to wipe the slate clean and reboot from the beginning. Taking to extreme that is life and death.
