Adams' mockery and the condecension of various posters are no big surprise to those of us who know and believe in Jesus. He even remarked about it himself - "...know this, that if they hate you, know that they hated Me first.." I may not have that precisely correct as I don't have my Bible in front of me to use, but you get the idea - mea culpa if I didn't get it right.
"Personal Faith" does advance the ability to prosper for the Shepherds for the religion be they Priests, Imams, Rabbis, Lama, Druids or whatever title they want to use and whomever those leaders decide to back in terms of business or politics.
oh and lastly, you can't prove that hell or heaven exists; you might as well tell us that we should watch out from being run over by an Invisible Pink Unicorn and that should we not eat a good amount of pasta that a giant flying spaghetti monster will come down from space to eat us for blasphemy against his noodly appendages. People who live their lives in fear and worship of the non-existent can not even begin to fathom the true wonders that really exist within our universe.
