Atheists Believe in God and They’re Going to Hell!

Keith seems to think that atheists spend a lot of time thinking about hell and that atheists are going to suffer the most for mocking his deity. He claims that atheists do actually believe in a god, but that they are afraid to believe because they do not want to give up things in life. He personally believes that not believing in a god is the “easy road” and this is why we deny the existence of a god. Finally, he mentions the age-old classic that if we didn’t believe in gods we wouldn’t spend all this time talking about them.

Let’s address some bullshit. Do I think about going to hell? Nope. Not even once. In fact, even as a Christian I was unable to reconcile the fact that people that I loved went to hell with their being no tears in heaven. How can you enjoy yourself while everyone you love and most of the people to ever be born are suffering unending agony at the hands of a careless dictator? Needless to say, I didn’t require much philosophical introspection to toss hell out of my theology. Hell isn’t even a biblical concept—it is actually Christian fan-fiction. More on that in a future video.

We don’t talk about gods because they exist or because we think they exist. However, the fact that you are so insecure in your own belief that you have to seek out my videos and leave comments like this demonstrates that you are really internally struggling with disbelief. We talk about gods because theism exists. In a perfect world we would not have to talk about superstitious beliefs, but we live in a world that is held captive by them. Just because I don’t believe in any gods and I am not part of any religion doesn’t mean that there is something contradictory about discussing religion — analyzing what it is, critiquing whether it is rational, and discussing what it means.

Religious beliefs, with rare exceptions, are not simply dormant little thoughts that sit in a glass case in someone’s mind like museum pieces. People act on their beliefs, they behave in ways that are informed and influenced, or even dictated, by their beliefs. Nearly every belief has an impact outside the individual.

Finally, you are the one that does not want to give up the ease of discarding personal responsibility on a scapegoat nor do you want to accept the finality of life. It’s safe to say you are the one who is afraid of reality because you would have to give up far too much and lack the maturity, critical-thinking skills, and the human decency to take the “easy road.”

Historical Evidence for Jesus?

Did Jesus exist? Were his miracles and actions documented by the historians of time? Surely they would have documented the things that surrounded a man born of a god like:

  • Being born of a virgin mother
  • Three Magi following the brightest star forever to see the demigod
  • The slaying of the innocent babies
  • Raising the dead, healing the blind and lame
  • Having the sky turn to blackness when Jesus died
  • Earthquakes in the region
  • The zombie saints coming out of their graves going to Jerusalem
  • The resurrection

Let’s consult with them and hear what they have to say…

  • Apollonius Persius
  • Appian Petronius
  • Arrian Phaedrus
  •  Aulus Gellius Philo-Judaeus
  • Columella Phlegon
  •  Damis Pliny the Elder
  • Dio Chrysostom Pliny the Younger
  • Dion Pruseus Plutarch
  • Epictetus Pompon Mela
  •  Favorinus Ptolemy
  • Florus Lucius Quintilian
  •  Hermogones Quintius Curtius
  • Josephus Seneca
  • Justus of Tiberius Silius Italicus
  • Juvenal Statius
  • Lucanus Suetonius
  • Lucian Tacitus
  • Lysias Theon of Smyran
  • Martial Valerius Flaccus
  • Paterculus Valerius Maximus
  • Pausanias

What!? They are totally silent on Jesus? Blasphemy!

John E. Remsburg, in his classic book The Christ: A Critical Review and Analysis of the Evidence of His Existence, had this to say, “Enough of the writings of the authors named in the foregoing list remains to form a library. Yet in this mass of Jewish and Pagan literature, aside from two forged passages in the works of a Jewish author, and two disputed passages in the works of Roman writers, there is to be found no mention of Jesus Christ.”

Nor do any of the aforementioned authors make note of the disciples or apostles; increasing the embarrassment from the silence of history concerning the foundation of Christianity. In other words, the only information of the life of Jesus comes from Christian believers.

When it comes to the historicity of Jesus, we simply do not have any historical evidence even though believers will claim otherwise. This is the same regurgitated drivel over and over again. As far as having more documents that mention Jesus, yes that’s true—but only if you count biblical texts. Even that doesn’t mean shit. There are more documents mentioning Gandalf than there are mentioning me, but does that mean Gandalf exists? No. Extraordinary claims require extraordinary evidence.

While Alexander the Great was great, we are not staking a worldview on his existence or attributing miraculous claims to his life. Also, there are no “witness testimonies” as you claim. The only person in the New Testament who claims to have seen Jesus was Paul and he didn’t even “see” him. He had an encounter with a celestial version of Jesus and never even knew that Jesus existed physically. The gospels were written at least half a century after Jesus supposedly lived. So basically, Jesus is on par with Gandalf, except Gandalf is way more amazing than Jesus could ever hope to be. Do you see any fucking Balrogs around? Yeah, me neither. Gandalf bitches!
