But your god commands there is only one god. If the Hindus have more than one god, it doesn't matter if one of them happens to be your god; they`re worshipping other gods too, and are therefore doomed for it.
So I ask again: how is it fair of your god to doom millions of people to torture for eternity for the crime of being unlucky enough to be born into the wrong culture?

"Mathematically it is almost certain that aliens exist, now whether there are ones that have been to our planet is certainly up for discussion. " By the same logic, the vastness of space, it is almost certain we'll never see one. I`m sure I had to calculate this at college but I am not offering to repeat that now.
It may surprise you to hear, but nothing really sets me off. I don't have an emotional response to any of the debates on here. I just like the intellectual discourse. I never get angry really about anything in life. My existence is far too charmed to get angry.
Another thing that may surprise you is that I have studied religion. I have read the bible 3 times cover to cover with a highlighter. I`ve read the torah, I`ve read the quran. I`ve read the book of mormon. I`ve read books on the major easteren religions. For a period of 9 months I went to church every sunday and bible group every wednesday. I even chaperoned a youth church group. My opinion on religion does not come from a lack of knowledge or a disinterest is it.
I`d be interested as to what evidence you have that god is real.
The universe verges on infinite. By definition infinity means all things that are possible are. That means two entities like us somewhere in the universe are having the exact same conversation, verbatim, but they are wearing different shirts. Mathematically it is almost certain that aliens exist, now whether there are ones that have been to our planet is certainly up for discussion.
