God is evil

Yesterday's Opus, as printed above, has a character claim that everyone goes to heaven. If everyone goes to heaven, however, then existence on earth is pointless. It is not a form of works righteousness, or a test to pass, or letting us experience a glimpse of life without God. It is entirely pointless. Whether or not you sin, or believe, or achieve nirvana, or whatever, you'll go to heaven. Therefore, the suffering associated with life on earth is gratuitous. A god who creates a world of meaningless suffering is for that reason evil. It is a counter-intuitive point, but God cannot be good without the existence of hell.
