|Heaven is supposed to be a place only for humans, because we are the only ones who can act morally and ethically. Animals don't get into heaven because they don't do that, they just act on instinct and aren't bound by the same ethical and moral codes. Well if they do believe that we slowly became human, surely heaven was just sitting idle for billions of years? When God suddenly decided, "hey you know what, let's actually populate this place!." Then around 200,000 years ago he decided we were evolved enough and intelligent and accountable enough to start letting us in.|
you can't actually stop to think about this sh*t logically.
that's not how religion works.
I mean, it gets even worse than your "empty heaven" example.
just consider life on Earth prior to the last 2,000 years.
if life and the universe and everything was created simply for humans to exist here on Earth, then why is the universe so large?
why create so much empty space? virtually everything around us is dead and void. our planet is one rogue solar flare or large asteroid impact away from total destruction. our galaxy - the Milky Way - is on a collision course with Andromeda; an event which will destroy all life as we know it around this neck of the woods.
and yet we're supposed to believe that all of this was designed with our existence and well-being in mind?
if this is design, it's certainly not very intelligent...
further more, Earth itself had humans living on it for at least 150,000 years before the Old Testament, Qur'an, or the Bible were written.
so. this means that god just sat around and watched humans suffer and die by the MILLIONS UPON MILLIONS in fear and agony and ignorance right up until about 2,000 years ago. and suddenly he said "ok I guess now is a good time to reveal myself and tell everyone how to get into Heaven."
after letting MILLIONS AND MILLIONS live and die without a clue. which means they all went to hell because they didn't know which faith to practice and didn't get baptized or whatever the f*cking stupid requirement is.
so utterly retarded.
and yet so many people believe it. in-f*cking-credible.
