Mr. Pickens Speaks

“It’s funny, but the whole idea of heaven scares me just as much as hell. I guess the thought of living forever, me up there forever–even if it doesn’t hurt, even if it feels good and I’m happy all the time–still, it’s just too much. Then I think, okay, so maybe when you’re dead, you’re dead, and there’s no more you. I try that one out, and Lord, F.X., that one scares me just as much. I mean, what if it’s true what some people say, that there’s not going to be any Last Judgment? Doesn’t that seem just about as awfu as if there was going to be one? Think of people like Hitler and Nero and Castro, all of them getting off scot-free.”
