That was my point: we don't know
... yet. Knowledge on matters like that still go far beyond human understanding, in relation to where it currently stands. And we're definitely not going to find those answers in our lifetime. I mean, we still thought the world was flat a mere 500+ years ago. I'm not one to settle for the easiest, most convenient explanation in the meantime.
My main flap with religion, though, is that I just can't see why a deity would insist on being worshipped by us... unless it was a total egomaniac, or was highly insecure. I would also think a deity would be above such petty human emotions as spitefulness and jealousy -- two traits often associated with it in the Bible and in general talk. If just being a good person isn't enough, then maybe if heaven really exists, it's not for me. : ?
There -- I'm now through with this subject.
