Dear WWGHA
 
I just watched your videos. You have made some simple and compelling arguments against belief in general, but your treatment of the text is woefully naive, which makes me reluctant to recommend your site wholesale. Any Christian worth their salt who reads "Nobody can get into heaven" will just laugh. Best disposed of.

Hi, and thanks for stopping by.

Can you clarify how you think the treatment of the text is woefully naive? And do you consider yourself to be a christian worth his salt? If so, please come tell s what you find laughable - it's unlikely that the videos will be disposed of on the basis of your "rather light on the details" email. Care to join us and elaborate a bit?

Hope to see you here!

There are some christians that think everybody gets into heaven.  Are they worth their salt and do they make you laugh?

The text is so self contradictory that you can take any one chapter and form a new cult around it.

We only sell retail. If someone is offering you WWGHA wholesale, it is not genuine.

Was Lot's wife 'worth her salt' ?

Quips aside, you are welcome you to join the forums and participate. Give more details about which video you think needs dismissing and why.

Niave, you mean like the concept that bonze age Goat herders that believed in magic had a better idea of how reality works than modern science?
An Omnipowerful God needed to sacrifice himself to himself (but only for a long weekend) in order to avert his own wrath against his own creations who he made in a manner knowing that they weren't going to live up to his standards.

And you should feel guilty for this. Give me money.

And why, and at what, would devout Christians laugh?
People are 'erroneously confident' in their knowledge and underestimate the odds that their information or beliefs will be proved wrong. They tend to seek additional information in ways that confirm what they already believe.

Hahaha!  I love this drive by postings that just give a cursory negative review without any explanations. Obviously, he/she has no particular thoughts, just random crap.
