22. I eat shellfish, so according to the Bible I'm going to hell.
But Hitler can have a 'come to Jesus' moment just before he dies and he gets to go to heaven. Some system Christianity has. A 'born again' Hitler is accepted by 'god' but someone who works for others and helps those in need all of their lives goes to hell just because they refuse to believe in fairy tales.

Leviticus says it's an abomination to eat shellfish. There are a lot of other things that are considered 'evil' in the Bible that will get you stoned to death. I wonder. Why would any 'all knowing' god unleash so many religions on the earth when it was still so primitive? You'd think a god that 'always was and always will be' could have waited another few hundred years until at least the printing press was invented, or better still, the invention of film or video recording.
