"Hell is the Absence of God" by Ted Chiang

edited March 2012 in Arts & Writings
This is an interesting story (in the form of a podcast) that speaks of a world where God openly shows his existence and seemingly random and dangerous angel visitations are a common occurrence. In this world, atheists openly deny the existence of God even with evidence of him, with other people on earth creating new mythologies to believe and dismissing this real God as an alien or something less holy/spectacular. Hell and Heaven can be seen, with the sight of Heaven blinding people and Hell being simply like Earth, but eternal. I only listened to the first ten minutes, but I think its pretty interesting so far.
