Have you ever wondered how someone can have sex while believing they make create children who will burn in hellfire forever? That was one of the big things that made me question Christianity. The Christians can’t even agree among themselves about which people are going to heaven or hell and for what reason.
I watched movie named Hellbound:
I found that not everybody who calls themselves a Christian believes in a literal hell where people burn forever. Some believe that everybody goes to heaven(universalism) or that unbelievers stop existing(annihilationism).
In any case, this should make Christians think twice before reproducing. If you know your children will go to hell, then why make them in the first place? If they go to some magical bliss place called heaven, then abortion or infanticide is the most merciful thing that can be done. If they stop existing, then you need to reconsider what the point is of the Christian religion. If this life is all there is then why not just adopt those who are here and give them the happiest life possible?
My guess is that most of them don’t think about the implications of their afterlife beliefs while they are busy being hormonal and sexual. The fact that I analyze this shows that I probably am asexual. I’m concerned entirely with the well-being of children rather that touching the bodies of other adults. I don’t even like shaking hands.
Awhile back. I wrote a book called Confessions of a Confused Virgin. It’s still available on amazon if anyone is interested.
Anyhow it’s been two years since I wrote that and I’m still Confused and still a Virgin. My views have changed significantly though since I wrote it and so I’m exploring my lack of sexuality and explaining it. Not sure if anyone cares but at least I benefit from thinking about this.
Here is a quote from the preface of my book:
“As a young, single, Christian virgin in my twenties, I started to think about girls, dating, sex, marriage, pregnancy, and babies. However, I tried to hide my thoughts and feelings for fear that people would call me a dirty, sinful pervert. I started to hate myself more and more for thinking about these things. They were not something that many Christians want to talk about. I prayed constantly, begging God to remove these sexual thoughts from me and then when he never did, I became angry at God and wanted to kill myself. Even if I killed myself, I was afraid of going to either hell or afraid that I would go to heaven and be near the God I hated.”
It was no accident that I was thinking about such things. After all that was all that was talked about at the churches I used to be part of. I honestly wonder if I would have even known there was such a think as sex if Christians could have shut up about it. It led me to a time of questioning Christianity and eventually questioning my sexuality or lack thereof. I slowly became less religious at the same time as becoming less interested in sex. How much of my hatred of sex is biological and how much is environmental? I shall meditate on this.
I haven’t been doing as much writing recently and so I hope my followers have not become bored with my blog. For the moment, here is a video of our recent Impersonal Opinion podcast.
We talk with our guest Roni about paradoxes! We talked about many paradoxes and also definitions of words. Roni begins with a Google definition.
paradox: “a statement or proposition that, despite sound (or apparently sound) reasoning from acceptable premises, leads to a conclusion that seems senseless, logically unacceptable, or self-contradictory.”
Then she gives the example of the liar’s paradox.
“This statement is false.”
We talk about many different paradoxes but we also spent a significant amount on the Free Will topic which is usually what we cover in our other podcast. Either way I hope you enjoyed our Impersonal Opinion conversation about paradoxes!

Long before I became concerned with the problems of the world, I was heavily into video games. I grew up with NES, SNES, Sega Genesis, N64, and game boy.
Times have changed greatly. Now I have practically infinite free computer games. I’ve been playing some of the fan made My Little Pony games. This is a great distraction from problems that I can’t do anything about.
