questions for (particularily christian) theists
so, ive been wondering some of these things which i never fully understood about christianity
1. if the all important goal of life is to get to heaven, why arent we just born there? why do we have to have everybody born here to never know wtf we're doing when we die?
2. what is the point of heaven? all i hear is, heaven is awesome. i really cant imagine much to do there. look down at all the destruction in the world? thats fun. sit fly around for eternity? really. unless theres a gamestop in heaven, i dont see a point to it.
3. what about animals? looking at what you guys say, im sure something must happen to them when they die. they are living and breathing, and their life comes to an end eventually. im sure you christians would agree with me they dont even know about christianity, therefore, because they kill other animals and don't ask for forgiveness for their sins, they are going to hell. how is this justified? and if you say that they are inferior and only humans go to heaven/hell, how is it so hard to believe that we couldnt have the same ultimate fate as them?
4. why would god even care? there really is nothing to gain for him for making earth.
5. why is it not okay to kill barely alive babies, but theres nothing wrong with the death penalty? why does thou shalt not kill not apply to certain picked things(ex. wars)?
6. all of you christians rip on the islam religion all the time for its terroristic violence, but do you not see what you are doing yourselves? "lets bomb that abortion clinic, because it is wrong to kill people". that makes tons of sense.
edit: another addition i just thought of: if there is this all important god and jesus that exists, why is it that god doesnt want his existance known? why do we have to go all the way through molecular biology research etc to find out if he exists? why isnt his figure or at least a representive like jesus showing himself?
