Well, purgatory while their case was being assessed. Eventually, the time comes to be judged and they are taken from the abstract realm that is purgatory where everything is equal and grey. Obviously, due to being a non-believer our Atheist hero is sent to complete and utter damnation. They walk from the judgement area cursing Pascal and God as to why he never revealed himself better. Still, it does no good as the bearded deity rushes back to his game of draughts against Adolf (who was catholic).
Yet before entering hell-the entrance is marked with old cemetery gates-a man who looks like Graham Chapman stops our hero.
‘Seeing as you are not so bad, like some of the others in there, I don’t know they can be right shits at times, you are allowed a choice.’
Our hero feels blessed once more with freewill as there can’t be any determinism around here, beckons the man to reveal all.
‘Okay, well, you can burn in hell forever and ever but get a break every now and then to heal up somewhat, get all fit so you can burn again. Or go into a world that destroys your mental faculties but no physical pain but no respite. Choose quickly please for there is a queue, oh Mr Robertson, go straight through, so what will is be?’
This is a most absurd scenario as you could apply any countless caveats to countless situations. But it shows the concept of hell up for what is really is: asinine. Nothing but complete and utter asinine and all its synonyms. To feel pain you need a central nervous system at least and a brain and something to feel pain of like an arm or a leg. In other words, you need an Earth body to experience hell. A wispy floaty soul can’t feel anything, least exist. Also, where is the fuel coming from that is feeding the flames of perdition?
Nothing wrong with hell as some type of story, like in Lord of the Rings, but remember all round the world every day hundreds of millions, if not billions of children are being told they are going straight there if they don’t believe in God.
