We have studied the resources to almost all religious teachings and God granted us the ability to reason. Why would we go against his wishes and stay ignorant.
With our great ability to reason and hard work throughout the past 1,000 years, proving the falsity of biblical teachings, are we still afraid to claim truth? If one digs in the earth and discovers truth, should he still believe what was written 2000 years ago. Is the earth flat?
Why is eternal life a better ending. Why would one want to go on forever with no out? Who was the ignoramous who wrote that one?
