I don’t think there is an elegant answer to such questions, most people simply aren’t reflective enough to even attempt to find incoherencies in their views. Another simple example to Christians (you can answer these questions to yourself): Would you ever masturbate if someone was watching you? Something is different and it’s seems as though it is different in a way they are unwilling to directly address, because it impacts the debatescape significantly.Ben Lorkas, Yeah, but Jesus has to watch *everything,* including everything going on in his unlimited imagination which includes you masturbating even if you never actually did.I forget the exact conversation topic, but my uncle said jokingly, “Hey, just make sure no burning bushes start talking to you, or people will think you’re crazy.” He said it as a joke, but it got me thinking that what he essentially said was that people today (presumably including himself) would see Moses as crazy. But to get back to your point, Luke, I think what you’re pointing out is a fact of human nature itself. I mean, it’s a struggle for most of us to even contemplate these things. Same thing with Christians – beliefs about hell are uncomfortable, so they try not to think about it except when they feel compassion towards “saving” people from it.We could point out the same thing in atheists as well – why don’t you live every moment of your life knowing that you will die? We do because we feel it’s important, but in our everyday lives, it doesn’t cross our minds. Not thinking about hell helps them live a normal life in the same way that not thinking about death helps us do the same. But, these are still good questions, things that Christians often ask of each other.

I don’t need to constantly “build up my faith” in the existence of magnetism. Hence, wearing a seat belt makes sense if it is their duty in this life to take care of it until the time is right.Jesus said, “no one comes to me unless the Father draws him.” Salvation is not a matter of convincing someone about an intellectual issue; it’s about responding to the direct call of God.And, for the record, I personally don’t believe that it is God’s decision that people are excluded from “heaven,” as it were; I think it’s the individual’s choice.Besides the mundane answers like laziness, shyness, etc., the answer, I believe, lies in the fact that if they really meditate on the idea of hell they could not believe in a loving, just God. Prayed about it–no insights received as you might expect. If God is good and hell is real then we must redefine what we mean by good as it pertains to God. They believe their son, whom they love dearly, is going to be tortured forever. I wonder what it means to demand consistency from people who subscribe to a (supposedly) delusional “you got word that soon, the Nazis were going to invade” Well, how soon?I think a lot depends on whether there is a specific date or whether it’s just something vaguely in the future and not expected to happen tomorrow. His parents intellectually know that he is going to die at some point but they don’t expect it to happen soon and they certainly don’t expect it to happen tomorrow.

I had an experience that actually made me think of this very inconsistency.
