YOUR point of view would be CORRECT only if God existed.
THERE IS NO SUPREME BEING WITING TO WHISK YOU AWAY TO A SKY-PALACE. YOU ARE NOT SPECIAL. IN ANY WAY. AT ALL.

AGENTLEMAN (is that the least accurate username ever, or what?), your point of view would be CORRECT only if your god were our creator, instead of the beneficient Diana. Sorry you picked the wrong god. You have failed the test!

So...God provided me pleasures and joys on this planet as a test to see if I would ignore them all, and treat this life as a waiting room? I don't think so.

Why does an omnipotent, omniscient God need to test us? Doesn't he know the outcome beforehand? And if the test is to help us grow, couldn't he have just created us like he wanted us in the first place?

If life is a test, then bigoted fundies most certaily fail.

"Your point of view would be CORRECT only if God wasn't our creator."
So I guess his point of view is correct then.

CAPS LOCK FOR JEEBUS!

What if Odin is our creator?

You failed the caps lock test.

Fatalism, straight from the text book.

Allegory for Jesus
Life is a test. Only be wasting it in blind obedience to dogma do you pass the test. Being a decent human being who strives to succeed is life is something that only heathens and Satanists would do!

Psst. Even if your 'god' existed, I'd be fighting to kill the fucker before I ever worship the bitch. Having read the Bible, I'd rather not support a homicidal, infanticide loving tyrant.

Riiiight. Because an all-knowing creator, who knows the past, present and future of everything on earth, has to "test" his creations to see how they turn out. Yup. Makes perfect sense.

ATTENTION BABIES. THIS IS A TEST. REPEAT, THIS IS ONLY A TEST.
I have a test for you: How much shit can your diaper hold?
11/12/2008 6:57:00 PM
A test to which God already knows how you will perform. Who is it that says life is meaningless again?

Proof by Intimidation.
Surely one of the most effective means of doing proofs in mathematics.

The life test isn't that tough. Just remember that death is nature's way of telling you to slow down.

NO SOUP FOR YOU!

1 + 1 = 3, and if you try and prove otherwise I will FUCK YOU UP!

The irony is that if AGENTLEMAN is right, the first speaker has his priorities absolutely correct- he believes in a higher power and seeks to be the best possible person whether this life is a test or not. Which, in a nutshell, is theist humanism

Oh, a test, is it? Let's work with that analogy...
First, there's nothing.
Then, suddenly you wake up in school, and your fellow students tell you that you're sitting a test. You've never seen the teacher; as in fact have none of them. When you ask them to describe him, you get wildly different descriptions that can't possibly all be right. "Ok," you say, "this test... what do I have to know and do to pass it?". So, the other students give you 5 dozen textbooks, none of which agree with each other, and even the ones that vaguely resemble each other specifically state that, should you use any of the other vaguely similar textbooks, you will fail the test. It's all rather confusing.
"So what happens if I fail?" you ask. "Well," you get told, "according to some of the textbooks you can sit the test again, but according to the prevalent text in this school and all the schools in this country you will be put in detention, not for a day, or a week, or even a year, but for ever and ever.".
"Hold on," you think, "that's just stupid. I gonna talk to someone in charge." - So, you leave the classroom and try to find the head teacher. But to your eternal surprise you find that there is no evidence - none whatsoever - that there is any teacher. Try as you might, nothing points to the existence of a teacher, or a test.
You say: "fuck that", grab your skateboard, and have an awesome time with your friends while the poor deluded students sit their imaginary test.
