Am I the only one who thinks Heaven sounds pretty shitty? I think I’d rather take a cheese grater to my nipples than spend eternity in a place where I can’t even be stoned whilst singing hymns. Growing up a Christian, Heaven was the predominantly confusing aspect in the bible. The bible’s viewpoint on this magical kingdom is derived directly from who? That’s right, the king. How many times have you heard a king bad talking his own property? I’m interested more in the most-viewed yelp reviews of Heaven’s slums before trusting the words of a genocidal tyrant. Because really that’s all God essentially is; an omnipotent, bloodthirsty, incest condoning, pro-slavery tyrant. The idea of a God who requires you to come into his house every week to sing to him and beg for his love in order to evade an eternity of suffering. This doesn’t sound like a very loving God to me. However, these are tiresome oft-repeated arguments and points. My issue is with Heaven and the weird flaws that most don’t seem to tend to.
What is Heaven like? Asking this question to a roomful of Christians will most likely get a different answer from each one. The one question that will really baffle them is this: What form will you take in Heaven? By asking that I ask will you be a child? Will you be reborn? Or will you enter your new life as you left your old one? Say you get decapitated in a 24 car pileup with a door handle in your stomach. Will you arrive in Heaven with your head in your hand? Perhaps Heaven has kiosks akin to what we see at Sheetz, with St. Peter handing out those tickets you get a deli. And on these kiosks maybe you can choose what you’d want to look like. Could you imagine that with our materialistic society? You’d have every guy walking around as either Brad Pitt or Idris Elba with no penis being under 10 inches. Speaking of genitalia, can you have sex in Heaven? Doesn’t sound much like heaven to me if you can’t have as much fun as you want every once in a while. I mean even if God were to forbid you from making love, wouldn’t we still have that human intuition to fantasize? I mean really who hasn’t lusted upon thy neighbor? In Matthew 22:30 the bible tells us: “At the resurrection people will neither marry nor be given in marriage; they will be like the angels in heaven.” Hence, it seems there will be solely neighbors to lust once entering the pearly gates. This leads me to ask, will Heaven or Hell be the afterlife of fun?
Hell is portrayed as a place of eternal suffering where sinners will go for their lives that were void of a relationship with God. However, is it that bad? Will you be able to get drunk in Heaven? Smoke a cigarette? What if you’re lonely at 3 a.m. and want to call up a holy hooker? And what about psychedelics? Weed, psilocybin, LSD, DMT, etc.? You know, those unjustifiably illegal, non-lethal drugs that do no more than expand your mind. I think if psychedelics were to be unleashed upon a devout Christian in heaven, he’d had a Descartes-level questioning of the Kingdom and would probably dive head first into Hell. If you ask me, the afterlife filled with drinkers, gamblers, sports addicts, porn enthusiasts, intellectuals, pot-smokers, and other outstanding members of society is much more appealing than an afterlife full of boot-lickers, non-drinkers, non-profane, and just generally unexciting people who sing hymns in unison.
And you really mean to tell me we will be without sin in Heaven? Say that the 10 commandments are very literal in Heaven. We’d see thousands of men being thrown to Hell by God himself. And what’s heaven if you can’t kill a few people that pissed you off on Earth. What if Jesus is pissing you off? I could imagine Jesus as being one of those rich kids ya know? “Well my Dad owns Heaven so you have to listen to me!” Let’s create a scenario: We’re at the annual Last Upper celebration,that’s everyone in Heaven, sitting at like a 500 mile long table. And you’re sitting there drinking your wine & as you go for another sip Jesus comes by and steals your last piece of mana! So naturally, you backhand the asshole just out of pure instinct. What happens? I mean that’s gotta be a sin right? Sounds like a one-way ticket to hell. So, after being on your greatest behavior on Earth you have to be on just as good of if not better behavior?
Also can we please stop it with the idea that Heaven has some NSA level system that every citizen has access to. How scared of dying are our religious friends? Not only do we have to have an eternal magical kingdom we arrive at upon death, we are able to watch our loved ones suffer a shitty existence on Earth until they arrive.
And stop trying to pray to your loved ones in heaven. Don’t you think they have better things to do? I highly doubt your dead father wants to hear about your football game while he could be riding on the back of a pterodactyl whilst having a threesome with Marilyn Monroe and Cleopatra. But all in all. that’s just my opinion, you’re entitled to your own. But I encourage you to challenge everything you are told.
