One thing that has intrigued me are so many who have left, who are wholly convinced everything in existence is merely by chance now, also claim they wouldn't want to live forever, and perfectly fine if this is the only life.
Now, I would understand that if you were raised into the religion. I was raised into it. My question is for those who chose to join the religion. If you joined, you would have believed that you can leave the religion and be eternally destroyed when armageddon came. The reality you are embracing now is the worst case scenario of when you were in it, eternal death. But if you joined it of your own accord and not raised in it, why did you want eternal life then and now say you would never want it?
