I listened impatiently while a friend,addressing my agnosticism, asked me pointedly "what if you are wrong?" The implication was that his version of devine rule (Baptist, I believe) was correct and I was destined to burn for eternity in hell-fire after a life filled with heart-ache and plague. I have on many occassions, listened to the rational of religous zealotry, explain to me why their version of devine rule was correct and why everyone else's version was either miss-guided or down right incorrect and condemming the poor lost souls to hell-fire and damnation. I have heard so many versions of this, that I wonder why there isn't something like a "god Lottery" or a comittee to define God for us in politically correct standard, maybe a few possible amendments to the ten commandments to account for queers, pedophiles, democrats, and amway salesmen. MAybe we could pick a few of the major dieties and put them on a roullette wheel and let the ball decide the god of the day ( I like this idea because certainly the real god could influence where the little ball dropped). It is not my intent to be offensive to anyone's beliefs here, but you must admit that there are a host of deeply committed theologies and a good many of them have their fingers on the trigger. This wouldn't concern me at all, except that there is no way to avoid getting caught in the cross-fire as an innocent athiest. Someone is eventually gonna deliver us a 20 kiloton message from their particular diety, just like they drove their stolen airplanes into the world trade center and this doesn't seem particulary fair to those of us that don't care which, if any, of the dieties are correct.
