The current view of the Church is that heaven and hell are states of mind. So some of us can be there.

Now ask yourself this, If god exists why do so many people suffer?

Perhaps we've been forsaken

Why is suffering necessarily bad? Suffering is feeling and sensing. In a way it also makes you feel alive, like when you hurt from love. I think suffering is an experience.

You can think it is unjust to suffer, but you'd have to understand suffering to really know the nature and justice of it.

I'm not sure all the different churches would agree with you there, especially if you're talking about Christian ones.

"Go to hell, dude."

"Heh, already there!" ...this begs the question, is it better to be a king in hell, or a servant in heaven? Is hell being bad all lies? Sinning on earth can be pretty sweet.

Really? Then what does one obtain (assumably 'heaven') after death when the mind ceases to operate?

Yeah, it's called being human. If the people who were poor, hungry, homeless weren't would they care if we were poor, hungry, homeless? Of course not.

hahaha, oh but for the days when Will Farrell was making good comedy.

Anyway, this question is stupid. and what's worse is i think you know it's stupid. it's one of those questions that people who want to seem "deep" ask because they're just really really really not interesting at all as people. but beyond that, it's stupid because it's completely meaningless. what precisely is hell? can you quantify it? i would posit that whatever i ask you to place within the context of hell can be reasonably described as hell by your merits. hell is a fairy tale, it's a mythical place whose description, context and severity of suffering as a punitive measure are entirely up in the air and open for interpretation.

if you truly do believe that we could be living in hell right now, i'd advise you to get a little perspective. we live in a utopia compared to what the world was like just 1000 years ago. 1000 years is nothing. it's less than the blink of an eye in the context of life on earth and a joke in the context of the universe. the concept of hell has been around for about 4,000-10,000 years in one form or another. it serves as nothing more than a kind of punitive cautionary tale. "if you're bad, you'll go to a bad place. so don't be an ass hole or else."

the universe is big, and old, like, 13,400,000,000 years old by most educated guesses. our sun hasn't been around for a third of that. our planet hasn't been around for a tenth of that, and life on this planet hasn't been around for a one millionth of that. humans haven't been around for a reasonable numerical fraction of that, and the concept of hell, well, you get the picture.

asking deep questions is fun, but ones like this are silly, and lame, and emo. if you'd like to cut yourself and cry about all the starving little children, that's your business. if you'd like to do something about the starving little children, i commend you, and if you'd like to get the slightest bit of long form perspective, well, i require it of you.

Every living thing suffers, if you didn't suffer you wouldn't enjoy anything because you didn't have any negative reenforcement. if it was all positive reenforcement your brain would be wired differently and life would still suck.

If you just titled this thread "god either doesn't exist or has forsaken us" it would get locked much faster and you would save everyone trouble.

You can think it is unjust to suffer, but you'd have to understand suffering to really know the nature and justice of it.

Suffering can drive you to end your existance..well here on earth.

God suppossedly gave us free will. This present is of our collective making and our personal experience, especially when on the personal you are making choices as you can partially dictated by your own brain chemical make-up. So everything from chemistry to concepts of pure thought have made our reality. I could see unfortunately why it may be a true hell for some inner and outer, a subjective hell for others.

Personally in my life I have passed from hell to a pretty damned relative pleasant state of purgatory. Things arn't right like I'd like them, but they arn't all bad by any means..I'm having a decent time.

I fear for the world, though.

Yep it can. Still how many times did we feel alive when we suffered a loss, be it at love or something else?

What would be the point of it all then? What's the point of suffering in hell if you have no recollection as to why you're in hell?

Also pretty sure we're missing the whole "eternity" thing if that's the case.

If this was hell, where do all the dead people go? Do they die for good? If so, why even have a temporary hell? Do people die in heaven? The point of heaven and hell is that once obtained you cant lose them.
