Existence of heaven proved!
‘Hoffentlich bist du, lieber Leser, nicht durch diese meine beißende Ironie verletzt’ (Zwingli)
WorldNetDaily reports: New ‘scientific evidence’ that heaven is real
‘Until now’, they observantly point out, ‘heaven has been just a matter of faith’.
But not any more, oh no. No more silly faith when we can prove it:
They continue: ‘a new documentary, “The Evidence for Heaven,” available exclusively through WND’s ShopNetDaily online store, offers scientific evidence for the afterlife’.
Here is a typical stream of thoughts in my brain when confronted with such silly, even if well intentioned, claims:
*aware of my stunned, blank face*
*faith in humanity wilts*
*thinks about becoming an atheist*
*But then remembers Jesus. Feels foolish for atheism thought. Repents*
That’s not all. They also serve a nice helping of dualism to top it off:
‘Is there something beyond this life’, they ask, ‘a spiritual realm of some kind where the soul resides when we lay this body down?’
AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhgghh. NOOOooooooooo! Bad theology, consumerism, naïve epistemology, anti-intellectualism and platonic notions of the soul and heaven - all for the price of one article.
When will the torture end? When will people stop leading me to webpages that DRIVE ME NUTS? You know who you are, and you know it makes me mad. Just the other day, a ‘friend’ told me of a lovely discussion page where one fundamentalist chap had decided to caution the author of the blog for quoting C S. Lewis, ‘for he is not a Christian’, and all because Lewis didn’t fit his own wack-job frigging messed up pile of theological wackiness. I read this ‘scientific proof’ and I want to gouge my eyes out, hide under a bed, swing on a noose, drown in cynicism.
