Intelligent design

Imagine that there is an afterlife, that there is a heaven and a hell.

Imagine these are not the Ultimate Fate of Good and Evil but merely two treatment groups in a centuries old lab experiment that the Almighty is running.

Imagine that each one of the seven circles is a different level of the manipulation.

Imagine that people are assigned to these conditions at random.

Imagine that purgatory is a control group.

Imagine that when the Day of Judgement comes along, God will come with his RAs and hand out surveys for us to fill.

Imagine that afterwards we'll get paid ten dollars for our millennia of suffering and return to being undergraduates for all of eternity.

What would be the purpose of Life in such a Universe?

To generate variance, of course.

What would be the implication of the analysis? Who would the findings be generalisable to?

I don't know. I only hope His results turn out significant.

I doubt it, though. If the Universe is anything to go by, God doesn't have a thesis.

Brilliant ! I have always thought God was just bored and we are used to entertaing. Though beats me what he finds amusing in us ( then again I wonder what he thinks of 'Borat')

"return to being undergraduates for all eternity"

Would that be in heaven or in hell, I wonder...
