The christian concepts of heaven and hell were created to control an oppressed population.

Given an eternity, one could get used to anything. So if a hell existed, I'd expect it would be boring.

Which is worse: being in eternal hell, or eternally sitting in the waiting room waiting to be dispatched into eternal hell?

Citrate1007: The christian concepts of heaven and hell were created to control an oppressed population.


and that's different from the Islamic visions of hell? Or the Buddhist ones?  Or the Hindu ones, or the Zoarorastrian ones?  For as long as there has been a notion of an afterlife (which may even pre-date Homo Sapiens) there has more or less always been an idea of a hell to counterbalance the idea of heaven for precisely the reason of behavior modification and enforcing conformity with certain moral standards

Very few of these ideas are from the Bible. The Bible does refer to Hell and its fires, but more of the details in Dante are drawn from Greek and Roman myths, and the vast majority are the creation of medieval Western imagination. Eastern Christian artists never shared their interest, and even in the West it was a late development - the doctrine of perpetual torment was propounded by the Lateran Council of 1215, just a century before Dante wrote. In modern times Christians have become increasingly sceptical about Hell. There are 622 verses in the Bible (in the New International Version) which mention Heaven, and 15 that mention Hell.

Just a reminder, folks, that the Catholic Church was a work assembled by committee, over a period of centuries, and often with the aim of establishing social and political control rather than enlightenment. The Fourth Lateran Council of 1215 also reinforced the distribution and length of indulgences, so it's hard to take seriously the idea of eternal torment pushed by the same folks who liked the idea of buying temporal relief from it.

Sigh. Borrrrrring.

The Catholic church is not some simplistic cartoon villain. You're being a total loser, ignoring the orders of monks and nuns, or the hermitages and isntitutions that were (and are) devoted to enlightenment. Are Franciscans interested in enlightenment? Yes, defintiely, always ahve been. Were Franciscans involved in violent and torturous injustices in the Yucatan during the age of colonialism? Yes, definitely. Life is complicated, and institutions are contradictory.

I agree that the Bible never says anything about Hell, of course. Then again, if readers think it should be interpreted rather than read for its literal value, then many pasasages can be considered references to Hell. Sheol and Gehenna can be read as analogies or comparisons to Hell, etc..

In the Chinese version of the afterlife, if you are good you get to spend eternity with your antecedents. If you are bad, you get to spend eternity with your antecedents.

For the masochists here who want a real idea of torment, I'd suggest reading the comments on the "tanning mom" wanting to do porn thread a little further up on the main page. And for those truly wanting to lose their lunches, here's Bill Hicks' bit on Rush Limbaugh: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hZsLF336fmk (NSFW).

Those are hells which you can be cursed to, the only true hell is your family.
