“Imagine” – what a beautiful title for an anthem. But, what are we asked to imagine? That there’s no heaven? Perish the thought! John Lennon’s song just wouldn’t be the same without heaven, or all the associations we have with the concept. Never ask the imagination to undo something, it doesn’t work. It’s like saying, “don’t think of your left foot,” or “remember to forget your car keys” – it’s impossible because the function of mind is positive by default, and that’s why it’s so hard to diet or to stop drinking. You can’t think of not doing something without, well, you know. And when I say, “this treacle is deevine,” I’m not imagining the waiter brought it down from On High, I’m just being poetic. And there are those who would deny me that. Someone just wrote a “dictionary of the bible,” and this cretin thinks atheists shouldn’t use any of the words in it. Now, that’s aggressive! So, let’s do imagine heaven, and hell, and all that their existence implies. Got it? Now, imagine a universe filled with red-shifted galaxies and all that that implies. Which model of reality would you rather inhabit? I’ve made my choice, and I no longer imagine there’s no heaven – I know it. And am all the more grateful to John Lennon singing, “Imagine”.
