    I lived there. Was crammed full of cranky old people who refused to let anything decent in terms of business move into town. and interesting fact. It was incorporated as " The town of Paradise" so now that its city size it should be called the city of the town of paradise.

    I was just there a few weeks ago!
    Only for a few days, and I was staying in a smaller town literally up the road, not long or close enough to get to know much about living there, but it’s pretty.
    There’s actually a story that Paradise was named after an old saloon called the Pair-O-Dice, but that legend has been pretty well debunked.
    It has about 25,000 people. That’s a city in some states but California law says “town” and “city” mean the same thing.
    Anyhow, I can’t say I’ve been to Hell but I’ve gone grocery shopping in Paradise.

    My research assures me hell is baggage claim at the airport in Atlanta.

    The Bible clearly outlines the steps that God’s Kingdom will take to restore Paradise to earth:
    God looks at the way the nations have fouled the air, water, and land by their selfish exploitation of earth’s resources and their bloody and destructive warfare, there is ample reason for him to feel wrathful and to take action to put a stop to their mindless course.
    That is why he will “bring to ruin those ruining the earth” before it is too late. This will then allow the natural healing power of the earth to reverse the damage done and to bring the earth back to a paradisaic state.
    The Kingdom will also deal with the crime and criminals that rob one of security and happiness so essential to Paradise.

    shame on you. you assume normal people will buy into this? more than likely walk around you—way around—cross the street maybe. i guess someone has to keep the sheep-shearers in business,

    You’re probably thinking of the saying that whether you go to Heaven or Hell, you’ll have to pass through the Atlanta airport. I travel often and I’ve found Atlanta to be much smoother than the older airports in the NE. Sure, it’s busy, but that’s better than confusing.

    Funny, I can’t find anything at all about environmentalism in my bible, and certainly nothing about time for the earth to heal itself. According to Revelation, the earth will be completely destroyed by fire and an new earth created in its place.

    Thanks to all who wished me luck Monday here on Pickles. The surgery results were not what I had hoped, but I’m a tough old broad and will take the steps to conquer the “Big C.”

    Ask the Hopi about it or the Hindus or anyone not just the Bible and its Christians. But for Christians after all the god created blood and death the Judgement is supposed to come where the living and the dead come to get new immortal bodies, then find out where they are in the Book of Life. To the heaven or to the shoel. Or so I have read. You can’t automatically trust what you read.
