Humor: The case for the existence of hell
This is not a troll, please relax and enjoy it for what it is. It's nothing more than a satire on reality at worst.

I consider this a fun existential mental game. It's likely for reasons like this, that most of my friends think I'm macabre and dark lol. This is not reflective of reality nor is it the sum total of my position or outlook on life or the world. I consider myself a reasonably happy person and not particularly depressed so any who get that vibe please understand that its totally ok to embrace the darker emotions (sadness, loss, emptiness). A complete human feels a complete range of emotions. If you're position is everyone must be happy all the time, and can never talk about seemingly dark topics, then I pity you. I suggest if that is the case you might want to protect yourself from what's below. For everyone else, please enjoy this fun crazy idea.


I have sad tidings everyone. You are all of you dead already, and this is hell. From the pope to the children he is forcing aids upon with his madness, from your parents to your religious neighbors. From the scientists who and free thinkers who say there is no god, to the politicians who are bent on destroying the world. All of us were born into hell already. There is no salvation, there is no happy ending for any of us, simply the delusions of those desperate to escape the punishment they've already earned. And the acceptance of those of us willing to embrace the nothingness that is our fate.

Imagine a world of magic and wonder, a world of Unicorns, wise and ancient mages who can summon fireballs from their fingers, immortal super men and women who can shrug off bullets and fire lasers from their eyes. Now come back to reality, look around you as you sit in your cubicle next to people you really don't care for that much. But let’s face it you need this job so smile and pretend to love your torture. Deep down inside you know it’s true, you know you were meant for more. Some desperately search for power and magic, praying to the gods in their head, begging for the world we are denied. Forced only to experience paradise through the windows of books. Clearly, you are in hell. What redemption is there from hell? our only possible salvation is to embrace the nothingness to be found in our death, no one will save any of us and deep down even the pope knows this.

Isn't this a more reasonable conclusion to draw on from reality than the idea that this is somehow a "test." After all what kind of sadist would test those he supposedly loves by tormenting them, giving them minds and emotions capable of so much, then giving them a world so restrictive and unfulfilling. Surely all the suffering in the world, if there is a god means we must then already be in hell. It's no wonder god never speaks to us for real, only through the delusional imaginings of the damned, our fellow prisoners. He's too busy in the real world with magic and wonder, leading them to paradise and adding to our torment by allowing us to glimpse that world through books and movies.

To me this silly story is just as valid as any religious belief out there.

Let me be clear, you're not dead or in hell. (Phew) At least there's no more evidence for that than there is for ANY gods. So relax and embrace the day! Congratulations for making it through my strange silly thoughts.


Thank you all for your time, I hope you enjoyed Smile

Hell, there's scant more evidence for me than there is for any gods. Evidence is overrated.

Perhaps Dworkin, however if not Christians I suspect someone else would have invented it. The level of control and power the idea of hell gives to manipulate the masses is fairly self evident. Manipulative people always seek for tools of control, someone would have found this particular tool if not the Christians.

If I'm not mistaken, it was Zoroastrianism that pioneered the idea of being judged after death, with the dead having different destinations depending on their deeds in life. Then again, they also pioneered monotheism too. Christianity itself is much like the English language, in that it likes to trick other faiths/languages into entering dark alleys before mugging them and ruffling through their pockets for loose ideas/vocabulary.
