See, it's an unfair contest. If the Christians are right, the atheists lose out big time. If the atheists are right, nobody gets the last laugh because you just turn off and start rotting.

If the Aztecs were right, though, we're all in for some interesting times post-mortem.

And if the reincarnationists are right we will be having this arguement again and probalby not even know it. Except for those whose bad karma has pushed them down on the evolutionary scale.

H. G. Wells had a nice short story about someone who wound up going down instead of upwards as he planned.

And that's just the problem. With so many people all thinking they're right, it is immensely unlikely that whatever belief you have picked is correct. :P

I bet we did already have this argument... and the fact that we're still having it means that our karma is collectively busted.

There are three of us, one gay and us not. When he tried to tell us the other cut him off, essentialy acknowledging the gayness byut refusing to deal with it. I believe the legal term is willful blindness. Its sad when you can't even be yourself around friends.

They died in the process of ascension. The human body does not bode well at high altitudes. :P

Well, he did die. I doubt he stayed in his human form after his ascention, but as an all-powerful deity he can do as he pleases. He did promise all his followers that they would have eternal life also, just after their death of course.

So you are saying that Jesus is a separate deity from
God? He is the son of God so he is another being. But by worshiping Jesus you break the first commandment which has that you shall have no other god before me.

And the Holy Spirit is probably feeling miffed at being left out. Besides, various bodhisattvas will tell you that Jesus really isn't a very nice guy for promising life after death. He's definitely part of the problem and not the solution.

—Alorael, who thinks Elijah's story just goes to show how the Old Testament is better. None of this silly getting nailed to a log to prove a point. If you're going to ascend bodily to Heaven, you do it in style with flaming chariot.

Plus he gets to come back to visit. Jesus gets eaten by those cannibal Catholics. Which explains why Catholicism is so popular among cannibals. They like a religion that emphasizes eating powerful leaders.

Elijah also gets to drink wine all over the world on Passover, one cup per household. Pretty good deal.

(I'm guessing his liver is immortal)

Nobody appreciates me. It's all "Igor! Fetch some wine!" "Igor! Clean up this experiment!" or "Igor! Bury this in the garden, we're leaving town in 10 minutes!"

As I understand it, God is God, and Jesus, the Holy Spirit and God are also God manifested as the Holy Trinity. So Jesus is either not quite the same thing as God or exactly the same thing as God, depending on how you look at it. Either way, Jesus is not a separate God from God, so no problems there. Anyway I don't think that's what Jewels said at all.

To summarize:

9 = 7, except when pi < 2.

Really, once you get a handle on it, christianity makes a whole lot of sense.

For some reason, I feel more comfortable with this interpretation than the rest of Christianity at large...

So, in the Trinity, there's a dude who got nailed to a log, a big booming voice that tells people to sacrifice their children, and a dove... and they're all the same person. In a very non-binding and vague way.

... right.

With respect to Elijah, the theory that I've seen is that he didn't go to heaven, merely a whirlwind that captured him and bodily removed him to a new location on earth, as evidenced by his writings that occurred after the ascension.

With respect to everybody dies, I'm holding out for the resurrection. If it occurs your statement becomes wrong.
