Why don't Christins just kill themselves already?
This meme is making its way around Facebook and was posted by a Christian to atheists on one of the debate boards. Clever right? Clever how it implies Pascal's Wager -- the never-ending scare tactic that Christians love to use, rather than give actual evidence of god's existence.
According to Christians I'll meet god when I die. But if I am hellbound and God does indeed loves me, he could make the effort and meet me now in this life and not in some empyreal afterlife. Since my soul is sooo important to god. But, of course god won't (since he does not exist after all), which means he must prefer that I suffer an eternity in hell.
Yep, that's some real love for you.
Christians spend their whole lives, biding their time while they are actually living, so they can die and meet god someday. Meanwhile, the atheist lives their life now to give their lives meaning embracing what life has to offer now and not at some future date. (Like being dead.) Atheists, like everyone, only have one life to live. We acknowledge that... what could be more life-affirming? Waiting for death or living for today?
Since this is the case, why don't Christians hasten the process and commit mass suicide already if they are convinced they will meet him.
