I'm pretty sure belief is irrelevant. ~Art

Riiight. One spends his entire adult existence making life unbearable for others, impacting even generations, all in the name of "creating a place where the soul learns what it needs to learn." This is nonsensical on so many levels!

Let's say you're the Creator. You want a relationship with your Created (plural). You give them free will because to not do so would result in a dry, unsatisfying relationship. You may as well not have created them to begin with. But when the Created willingly engage You, enjoy chatting with You, appreciate You, turn to You for comfort and request Your assistance, You're pleased--as any Parent would be in a similar relationship.

Then along comes (for example) Adolph Hitler, who needs no introduction. During your lifetime, you couldn't care less about engaging the Creator in ways that please Him but, upon death, ol' Hitler enters the splendiferous Holographic Universe You created--which just about puts a thumb in the eye of everyone else You created.

"Hey, widow (who gave the last coin she had), meet Adolph. He was responsible for the brutal murder of millions of fellow Created, but that's OK…just scooch over and make some room for him because he learned what it was like to be dual and separate--whether he wanted to learn it or not. Heh heh heh."

Little Adolph learned his "lessons" as did everyone else, with no consequences whatsoever for the heartache and relentless physical pain he caused on Earth and being in active rebellion against God for his entire life. In the end, it's all good!

Speaking of "good," what's that, exactly? If you've done nothing for which to be forgiven, why are we all wasting our time being "good?" Why not walk into your neighbor's house and pull that 60-inch flat screen TV off the wall and take it home with you? Your neighbor's got nothing to say about it, either, because he's just learning what he's got to learn--the more "separately," the better!

The answer to these seemingly inscrutable questions is that good behavior matters to Someone, and there are consequences for not maintaining good behavior, but since no one can maintain good behavior all the time, what's the solution when there are standards of behavior from which we cannot escape and that we feel pressing on us all the time?

Christianity. No other religious doctrine provides the solution. But if you're really, really sure that belief means nothing and you'll actually enjoy the company of Ol' Adolph, then by all means--eat, drink and be merry, for tomorrow you'll finally be "separate."
