Pray for what, exactly . . . pray that I will go to a place called Heaven filled with bunch of self-righteous, annoying people all kissing up to a god whose violent nature can only be appeased by creating a son for himself to be tortured and killed? Sounds more like Hell to me! (People really need to open their minds and read some ancient mythologies . . . a light bulb might go on in their brains.)
The idea of a god who creates people with free will, but hides himself, and then sends them to a place called hell for using that free will is quite absurd . When god believers who say they will "pray for you" are asked difficult questions, like "where is the evidence for this god?" they recite like robots from their ancient mythology book that is written by flawed humans....and when asked more difficult and shown the absurdity and contradictions of their Bible, they run away, shouting "I'll pray for you!" over their shoulder. What kind of prize do they think they are going to win by telling people this crap? If we do go to hell, they won't know it anyway because they will be too busy being slaves to their Skyboss to even know it . . . so what is it to them what we believe or don't believe? I have said this many times before, it is because the more people they can get to believe, the easier it will be for them to keep deluding themselves.
