While I was helping some of the art majors with a wood kiln the other night, one of my Christian friends (I think she somehow missed that I am an atheist) was talking to another art major, and mentioned that she looks at the wood kiln and then realized that hell will be infinitely hotter and how she feels sorry for all the non-christians who were going there. A massive wave of sadness and anger instantly washed over me, and I found myself reflecting on the horror of subjecting someone to that kind of brainwashing. How much fear they must have. I began to wonder what kind of trauma she subjects herself to without even knowing it. The idea of once again having that paralyzing fear terrifies me. It terrifies me that she goes through life in fear of doubting, and it motivates me to strive ever harder towards the truth of these matters. I want to illuminate people, and this concept of Hell flies in the face finding truth.
