If there is a God, why doesn't he just blast all non believers with lightning!

There's a few answers for that. Maybe they'll believe again some day. Being blasted with lightning would do nothing to demonstrate Goddidit or which one. Perhaps a creator would be impersonal and not give 2 shakes about worship/belief.

There are about as many factors/forms of non-religion as there are of religion.

i would just say you are what you are.

You identified yourself as a Mormon. Why not use the umbrella word of Christian, or the bigger umbrella of theist?

Well what you guys are talking about there is no major difference and when all of you guys die all of you guys just stay died. In Christianity If you are the wrong religion well then you might not go to the right place in the Afterlife.

Atheist or agnostic =/= no afterlife. These things are not mutually exclusive. Some are spiritual atheists, believing there's an afterlife that doesn't require a god.

In Christianity If you are the wrong religion well then you might not go to the right place in the Afterlife.

This sounds like Pascal's Wager again. Do you not realize that there are tens of thousands of versions of Christianity? Their versions of the afterlife and how to get there differ depending on which one you go to. Then there's all the other religions of the world. If you're not honorable to Odin/Zeus/Allah, X could happen.

OK But probably only one Church is true and all the other churches will be wrong and that one church members will be the only one that will go tto the best heaven.

What are you basing this probability on? The possibility remains that none of them are true.

That is one possibility there is many possibilities But like I said if One day we go all go to the next life probably only one religion would be right.

You're still asserting that one must be correct and that there is a next life.

OK Im Just saying that there is probably a afterlife and if there is many religion and all have different ideas that one of the ideas will be right and the rest will be wrong.
