Two Questions for Christians

  1. There are some 60,000 gods. The main ones still going are Christianity, Judaism, Islam, Hinduism, Buddhism and Jainism. Christians sometimes know a little about Judaism, but nothing about the others. Most religions promise to torture you for eternity of you don’t select their religion. I would think people who took these threats seriously would research carefully to be sure they were picking the religion most likely to carry through its threat. But they don’t. They do no research at all. Why such a casual attitude to such a momentous decision?
  2. If I went to a car dealer and the salesman threatened to torture me if I did not buy his car, I would conclude that salesman was a cad, and I would have nothing to do with him. That is not a legitimate way to sell cars. Why do religious people have any truck with salesmen of religions who threaten to torture them if they do not buy?
