A really hard question on Satan and deception.

So is heaven kind of like developing dementia here on Earth where you pick up the newspaper and read it several times a day and the news is always fresh? Or did I just write that?

Knowing how many humans behave on earth, how would they act in heaven?

I know you’re supposed to lead a virtuous life to gain access to heaven, but no one is that perfect.

Would the human mind be able to handle this supposed paradise? Or would it be the same crap with people trying to gain the upper hand?

I know it’s a fairy tale anyway, but that’s one question I’ve pondered. Which no religious person that I know has been able to answer.

Perhaps they cannot hear you from their position with their God.

I once dated an angel. She was gorgeous and very sweet, but sex was tough because her wings kept getting in the way. Anyway, she told me that most angels secretly are rooting for Satan. Apparently heaven is a very boring place.

Yes. I hear there is only one T V chanel and it is tuned to hell all the time.

Better to shovel coal in hell than to spend eternity watching friends, neighbors and our children in torture and flame forever.
Only a sick mind would conceive of such a situation or wish it upon anyone. That is why God would not do such because then, heaven would be hell.
If those in heaven did not go insane then they could not have once been human or good.

You should think of hell just a bit and recognize that God would not create such an immoral construct.

There’s nothing conceptually wrong with Hell.  There’s an all powerful being, and you piss Him off, and He damns you to Hell.  Perfectly possible.

Sure. If that God has no morals.

If he does not, then why follow such?
After all, religions are supposed to be all about morals and the proper way to live.

If you carefully research Tolkien, Book one chapter 1 you will clearly see that the wood elves and their cousins were created as immortal entities independent of humans AND orcs. The orcs, as any fundamentalist Tolkienite knows are the only TRUE evil placed here in Middle Earth by the embodiement of darkness, dare I mention the name, Sauron. This I know to be true in my heart and it only makes common sense to those of the sacred texts. Praise Frodo!

Your research is flawed, good sir. Sauron’s master, Morgoth, created the Orcs, from corrupted elves.

Ahh, but are you interpreting this from the King Aragorn version? Everyone knows that this cut and paste book? was created by man and not Morgoth. A careful reading of the Silmarilion will reveal all. Just yesterday I had a vision from Gandalf who informed me that I must lead all nonbelievers to the white tower for purification. Read my latest book The Late, Great Middle Earth, only $19.95 from Amazon. All profits to go to my university in Hobbiton. LOL

It’s a tough life to be a believer.

You should see what happens when God farts.

Talk about believers with swollen heads and prayers against beans.

The U S have an example of this in Bush and others yes.
Other countries as well I am sure but I have no names to offer.
Iran has a miracle worker though. No Gays in Iran.

Oh, I’m reasonably certain there are gays, lesbians, bi’s and what have you in Iran. The only reason they’re alive is because they’re being extremely careful to avoid advertising the fact!

Theocracies have a funny habit of executing people who don’t conform to the expected norm.
