  1. Excellent video of the reading of this classic book showing what a horrid sadistic monster the god of xianity truly is. I also liked the companion video where he reads from the beginning of her book http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZyZjuw2JCXo and will be reblogging your post.

  2. Reblogged this on Blau Stern Schwarz Schlonge and commented:
    Here is a very interesting and rather frightful reading of a book called “The Christian hell from the first to the twentieth century” by Hypatia Bradlaugh Bonner in 1913. She was the daughter of the famous atheist Charles Bradlaugh. And there is also another video where is read Chapter One of her book.

    It’s very interesting that judaism did NOT have a concept of hell or a devil. It was christianity’s invention. When they reinvented yahweh to be the ‘benevolent god’ that would kill his own son to ‘forgive’ humans for their knowledge, they needed to come up with a much bigger threat the death constantly toted out in the old testament.

    But, do you know of that feeling you get where you wish harm upon others after you feel slighted by them, but can’t act upon it because of powerlessness or social constraints, that’s where I think the concept of hell was rotted from – that feeling, but someone decided to invent this land he couldn’t prove exists in order to scare and threaten the people who he doesn’t approve of. Bertrand Russell once had a quote that said ‘the ability to inflict punishment with a good conscience pleases moralists, which is why they invented hell.’ Something to condemn others to whole not having to break the ‘meek’ character you set up for yourself.

    Also, you wouldn’t believe how vague and non-existent hell is in the bible. Most of it is human imagination. The preachers say ‘hell is bad. hell is torture.’ and human minds filled in the rest over time. The question is why are you tortured by a guy who’s in it for the same reason you are? unless yahweh and the devil were in cahoots, that is logically flawed. But it isn’t, it’s just a poorly-written drama play that was designed only to scare you, not think it through.

    There are other youtube vids that discuss the evolution of ‘the devil’ from yahweh’s flunkie to the metaphysical boogeyman that are quite good.
