I have a few responses consolidated in this post.
HAL, were you actually looking for honest answers to your question, or was this just a thread to shoot down anyone who disagreed with your preconception?
Yea I'm looking for honest answers, but you don't seem to actually have an honest answer. I shoot down dishonesty, not honesty. Pumping yourself up on the internet like some kind of i-Superman when your frail humanity will buckle in the scenario is sheer dishonesty. You should take to heart some of the eloquent posts that are
honest. You will be no hero son.
And yes, I am well aware that I said I wasn't going to participate any further. My curiosity got the best of me.
LOL - you can't resist the temptation to respond on a forum thread when you said you were done, but yet you want us to believe you can resist eternal torture? Give me a break! I think you should quit again while you have a chance.
And to the rest of the posters that said they would worship if that were the case - how easily you retracted on your original statements and postures - just with the threat of torture. I know torture to a degree. None of you would be able to enjoy a single day seeing something like that going on. Pathetic. You'd all be living in heaven in absolute terror of being sent a-down-below.
Jeremy - they are being honest. You should applaud them for understanding their humanity. You are the one who is being dishonest. Quite dishonest.
You "know torture to a degree"? That's a laughable remark if you expect me to now agree that a mere human such as yourself will choose eternal torture because they "know torture to a degree". If it was legal (it's not) and if I was a nasty enough person to do it (I'm not), I could easily make you worship me
. I have enough tools in my garage to torture you to the breaking point in very little time. In just a few moments you will do anything I tell you to do, because the things I could do to break you are, well, let's just leave it to your imagination - children might be reading this. But to the point - I won't even have to, because you will realize your frailty and will start squealing like a stuck pig when I get within a few inches of the parts of your body I was aiming for with my torture device. You'll break before I do a thing like a cheap wine glass.
Even if you were brazen/foolish enough to still take me on because you would risk death to end it isn't going to cut it, because in the reality of the scenario we're talking about, death isn't an optional way out. So please - stop being an internet tough guy and admit the obvious. The longer you go on about resisting Biblegod because you think you are tough enough, the sillier you look.
Jeremy (or Nam or OAA) - have you ever watched the movie Deliverance
. If you have you know what happened to the guys from the city when the mountain men got hold of them - they submitted to the demands of the mountain men very easily and quickly. Sure they got out of the situation but it wasn't their doing - they weren't willing to risk torture to resist. It was a pretty ugly and embarrassing scene, it's too bad Jeremy the Magnificent or OAA the i-Superman who can stand up to Biblegod wasn't one of the two who got caught right?
No, I picture you doing just what those city guys did in that situation or the scenario we're talking about here when you don't have a computer to hide behind. You'd be crying like a fucking stepchild asking to do whatever to get out of tortue. Next time I watch it I'll be putting Jeremy in place of the one squealing like a pig in his underwear, and OAA as the other pinned to the tree with a belt around his neck, because that's what you would do.
Protip: Jeremy, Nam, OAA - contact U.S. Special Forces - they could use the training you could provide. If you can stand up to gods they could certainly use you in some fashion I would think.
I suspect the reason some members are taking this internet tough guy stand is that they feel like they would be embarrassed if any Christians read that they would actually worship Biblegod after all the arguing against it on the forum. If they just keep typing out the tough guy stand all will be well with their reputations. I understand. But that doesn't mean you would actually stand up to the real thing if proven true. Common knowledge of human frailty shatters that idea. I also think that quite a few members agree with some of us that they would worship Biblegod to avoid eternal torture, but just don't want to admit it in front of members. I also understand that. You know who you are.
