DavidHenson
scaleofpeace

Hell was adopted by apostate Christianity from Pagan teachings. Though the word itself appears in older translations of the Bible the meaning of the word has changed over time, and is either mistranslated or a misleading translation considering the changing of the meaning of the word. Definition of Hell: Eternal punishment of the immortal soul in a fire, often mistaken for the lake of fire....

I am defending the traditional definition of atheism which states that it is a belief that god does not exist, and that the notion of suspending judgement fits the term agnostic rather than atheist.
