Hell according to muslims and christians
Yes this is a rant that has to do with religion,If you don't like it tough.
Now before I start this,I'd like to state that I don't and will never hate religious people infact that closest people to me are muslims from friends to all my family and my family know I'm an atheist and still love me to death and vice versa.If they believe they should worship a god because he created them I honestly don't give a fuck they can do whatever they want to do and I'm more than fine with them feeling grateful to a so called being who gave them life infact there are certain religions I kinda like even if I don't believe in them "mostly Asian ones,No Buddhism isn't one of them"
However my biggest problem with religions like christianity and islam isn't how they say they should wear hijabs or how they say they shouldn't have sex before marriage or any of that stuff,What I despise about those religions is that they speak of the concept of hell as if it is justified.
Yes I HATE and DESPISE the idea of hell and you ask why? Because NOBODY deserves an eternity in hell,Not Hitler not Stalin not rapists not murderers not NOBODY.Now you're gonna tell me I'm crazy for saying nobody deserves hell? I never said that exactly,What I said is that nobody deserves hell FOR ALL ETERNITY.Guys like Hitler or Stalin? Yeah they should be put in a place like hell for lets say,10 years or so but not for fucking ever.The idea of hell for all eternity is NOT justice is disgusting and cold as ice.Horrible people are not born horrible and EVERYBODY has good in them,Call me a hippie or whatever the fuck you're gonna say but I've always believed every person alive has good in them its just that some refuse to be good because of certain things in their lives that stop them from even thinking of doing good.As people say,People are not born villains they are MADE villains.What mostly makes me sick of the concept of hell mostly is that you can go to hell for simply not being a part of the religion itself! According to muslims ALL people from non Abrahamic faiths WILL go to hell no matter how good they are as people and christians have that "You have to accept Jesus" garbage to go to heaven "Although I might be mistaken since I don't know much about christianity as I do in islam".The entire concept of hell for simply not believing in the religion is complete utter bollocks and is anything BUT justice,And don't give me that "some people knew hell is real but didn't care" because NOBODY doesn't care about not going to hell forever and if they don't care they are mentally insane,Is god sending mentally insane people to hell? How very just.But lets assume "disbelief" is a bad thing and that people who don't believe really are bad ok I'm down with going to hell for a certain period of time for disbelief but forever? Forever? Can you actually say hell forever is a good solution? What does god gain if people go to hell forever? How will people learn from their mistakes if they go to hell forever? How the FUCK is the concept of hell forever even justified in society?
There are two reasons I made this rant,One is because I was talking to a certain someone who is very close to me as of late,She's VERY religious christian but she's an extremely down to earth person who I really like and vice versa.I kept asking her am I a bad person? She said no I'm an amazing person,But then she proceeded in telling me "god does whatever he wants and if he sends you to hell then that'll be that",That pissed me off because she said it.
The second reason is because since childhood I've ALWAYS had Hadephobia,For those who don't know what that is its the phobia of hell.The reason I know I have this phobia is because when people talk of the Underworld from Greek Mythology or the Egyptian mythology I never care but when people speak of the forms of hell muslims and christians speak of it will ALWAYS get my attention even though hell to me is as real as Willy Wonka's chocolate factory.I have had my fair share of nightmares about Hell too.When I was a kid once I went with my dad once the sheik at the mosque in the Friday prayer was talking about Judgement day and hell "at the time I had Hindu and Sikh people who were my friends" and the sheik started saying all people who are not a part of abrahamic faiths shall go to hell no matter what.I cried back then and kept telling my dad I don't want my friends to go to hell and the sheik himself came up to me after the prayer and was like "Its good you're crying,It means you know the wrath of god and now you'll do anything to avoid hell" and that memory itself of this makes me fucking sick.
So people who do believe in the muslim/christian versions of hell,Please explain to me how the concept of hell for all eternity is justified as justice to anybody.Maybe I'm too stupid to understand it because I'm an evil naughty heathen,Please explain yourselves.
Damn I feel better.
