Yes, but who cares what the Bible says? It has zero authority.The passage in the Bible clearly relate to Sheol which isn't merely a Christian concept.
Ohhh, it's underground. How far down? Can you give me rough GPS coordinates so I can start drilling? Didn't think so!As Sheol is underground it would be ridiculous to attempt to point to it on a map
Well, you should make that clearer then. Stating the mythology as if it were fact leads to misunderstandings regarding your theological position.I am not a Christian
Sure. From a story standpoint, some of them are pretty rich. I, however, find Christian mythology somewhat droll. I've got my own "religious" views that satisfy me, regarding the nature of consciousness and the physicality of our existence. I don't need some poor fellow talking to me about how some zombie dude from the 1st century "loves" me.Perhaps I am asking the wrong atheist but does any religious idea ever intrigue you?
