    God loves us, just doesn't care to help us.
    If you think of a god as a very popular superstition it all makes sense. And then all the wacky stuff like YEC makes sense too, not that it's defensible, only that people find an attachment to it.

    Nice concise summary.

    It gets sorted out in the end...

    Would you want to live with God in His Kingdom? Some people wouldn't like the idea if it were true. That's what its all about.
    What god. What's s/he/it like?
    What Kingdom. What's it like?
    Bonus question: how do you know what it's like?

    Which ones are the earth corner nations?

    Which is so weird, because it seems to say, "without any evidence." Turning into a perfect recipe for false beliefs. Errors in conviction, errors in transmission, errors in understanding. And an eternal punishment if you get it wrong.


    It's all so implausible that a god would do that.
    Er, implausible that a benevolent god would do that.

    God is as according to scripture, or personal experiences for some.

    Kingndom is the new Earth. I assume lots of green grass and blue mountains and everyone is healthy.

    As according to the scriptures.


    Would YOU want to live there, if it were true?

    The furthest reach I assume.

    That is yet another verse that implies the earth is flat... see post #12 and #13

    As far as I know, there are no verses that are against a flat earth interpretation.

    Every map I have seen has the Pacific Ocean in all four corners... .the thing is, we learned long ago that the Earth is not flat. It's a cube. So there are actually 8 corners, not 4.

    Indeed. "The wisest man on earth," Gene Ray (he will be missed), tried for years to explain this to the world and he was only mocked. But, thankfully, his site, timecube.com lives on in a new iteration:
