    Hell is the imaginings of primitive, megalomaniacal men.

    Poor responses above.

    Im agnostic (I don't see how anyone can possibly write-off the possibility of a creator, just as I wouldn't write-off the possibility that I am in a case of liquid **** and being fed information), but this can still be discussed.

    If one calls 'All-things-that-are-good' "God", then yeah Hell would surely be just that.

    I'm open to the idea of there being a creator, I just don't believe that it's the vile character portrayed in scripture. I don't think a being with this amount of power and intelligence beyond the scope of our imagination would be so: homophobic, misogynistic, genocidal and racist.

    Why is this creator so obsessed with our measly planet orbiting our mediocre star? There are 70 sextillion (70,000,000,000,000,000,000,000) other stars and 500 billion other galaxies.

    I think if there is a creator, it doesn't deserve the repugnant label that scripture gives it. I'm certain an atheist gives such a creator more respect in this regard.

    there is no evidence that hell is a place of fire and brimstone, should it exist. This is the crux of the argument.

    There's really not much to be discussed. Dreamed about, perhaps. But regardless, the nature of hell doesn't go any further than the confines of the human skull.

    Hell hath no limits, nor is circumscrib'd
    In one self-place; but where we are is hell,
    And where hell is, there must we ever be:
    And, to be short, when all the world dissolves,
    And every creature shall be purified,
    All places shall be hell that are not heaven.

    Hell is the tool used by religions to scare their followers into conforming to their ways and beliefs.

    Sure I can't write it off. But I don't have any reason to start imagining the nature of a 'heaven' or a 'hell'. Pointless speculation.

    Hell, like God, is somewhat irrelevant in today's modern day, intelligent society.

    If you believe in creationism then of course it is a tangible place. What kind of pseudo-philosophy is this sh**?

    Well in that case, Hell isn't half as bad as everyone's been making out...
