"then what's the meaning of life then? why not just kill myself if there is nothing after this life?"
there is no inherent 'meaning' to life but what you give it, you are responsible to give your OWN life meaning.
if it's worshipping a god for comfort-fine,
if it's raising a family-fine,
if it's simply to be happy-fine
if it's to do good for your fellow man-fine
If you feel life is worthless without the promise of an
afterlife, I think that is quite sad
"but why take the chance? why make the choice that could land you in hell-burning for all eternity?"
A choice? You are mistaken, there is no choice. If I held a gun to your head and said you must believe I'm God or I will kill you-
what choice do you have? -this point irrelevent, man made concept
"well I believe in the word of the bible"
What makes you think you are right? that your holy book is correct?and everyone else (4 billion people) are wrong? you do realize everyone else with differing beliefs thinks YOU are wrong. and it all comes down to where you were born. had you been born in saudi arabia, you wouldn't be a christian but a follower of islam.
-irrelevent- man-made document mistranslated, edited, corrupted
"so are you saying, God does not exist?'
First off, there is a difference between 'does a creater exist' and 'your VERSION of this creator'.
there are thousands and thousands of versions of the 'god concept' that goes back to early mankind a couple hundred thousand years ago. when man did not understand something, for example lightening-it was attributed to a god.
your version, that of yahweh-jewish mythology-, has been thoroughly debunked.
Moving on. Is there a creator?
I don't know. No one really knows. Scientist don't know. We don't know what happened before the big bang.
All we can do is speculate. I will say this. Just because there is a question that science has yet to answer, why automatically say it was a god??
We just don't know yet and may never know
"why are you so concerned with what I believe?"
I really don't care about a persons' fantasy world as long as it doesn't contribute to human rights abuses and in general I despise hypocrisy. Pray all day long. It's fine with me - you think you are speaking to God but I know you are just having a conversation with yourself.
"but God speaks to me"
Wait a second...What does the voice sound like? Is it your voice in your head or
"it's a different voice...it's the voice of the Lord!"
Ah, ok that is what we call paranoid schizophrenia...I'm going to take off now
