View Full Version : What do you think Hell is like (if it existed)?

Don't say "We're already in Hell". During my recent off time I have been sitting around thinking up different ideas of what eternal damnation would be like. I don't have any control over this, it's more like extremely pervasive and disturbing imagery that has been creeping into my brain almost all of the time. But what do you think Hell would be like if it existed? Leave your descriptions below.

I imagine that it would be like laying on a bed dying, and then all of the sudden you start to feel a cold sinking feeling. They say that hearing is the last thing to go until death has permanently compromised you. As your eyesight grows dim, you begin hearing the wailing of sirens and growling almost like "bubbling" in a cauldron with hissing and then you are before Lucifer. In one hand he is holding a dildo that is encrusted with feces, blood and vomit. In the other hand is a pitch fork. Your initiation into Hell is up to you whether or not you wish to be violated by the dildo or the pitchfork which is like a hot poker and sharper than a flying piece of stained glass shrapnel in a tornado. It just cuts right through you.

You are then led to your cave where you are forced to watch people in Heaven have sex, party, relax and enjoy a breeze while laying on a cot and Jesus flipping you the middle finger as you sit there in agony. Every 5 -7 minute a demon walks by and throws venomous insects at you. Ones that consume you until you are completely skinned and burrowed into, only to grow all of that back, and then be consumed all over again for years and years and years and years.

The other people in hell are pinned under boulders, dressed in gimp costumes, gasping for air while being kicked in the belly by the dark sided army soldiers of Satan. They are terrorized with pictures of their family who has passed into Heaven. "You'll never see them again. Ahahaha. They sneer".

It never ends. Time doesn't exist but your awareness of the eternal segregation from love, peace, and freedom from sheer terror, pain, and death after death after death after death grows more terrible each second that passes. It' pretty bad.

I think when considering the possibility of Hell and it's descriptions and atmosphere, a good place to start would probably be The Bible.. The whole "lake of fire" and whatnot. Dante's Inferno is another great idea...

In which the outermost circle is a grassy plain with a big castle, or something like that. Which isn't really that hellish, by my standards. The stuff in Dante's Inferno is by no means a pleasant way to spend eternity, but as far as eternal torture and damnation goes, it's a little on the light side, I think. But it is a great dramatisation and in-depth description of Hell as a literary work. Maybe some of the impact has been lost over time.

I think hell would be absolute nothingness where everything you have worked toward is worthless and everyone you loved is gone.

Or alternatively, it's an eternity in an infinite loop of a Nicki Minaj music video.

Interesting responses in here. My ex sister-in-law (who was not a very good person... deceitful, manipulative, unfaithful to my brother) told my mom once that she had a dream she was in hell. She said she could see her loved ones, but they couldn't see her... she kept trying to talk to my brother (her husband) and he couldn't see or hear her. She said it was like being totally alone or like she didn't exist and everything was gray, no color. She said it was horrifying. Kind of freaked me and my mom out a bit.

I've never stick to the chrstian idea of "fire"; if anything, hell must be the coldest place to be in, so no flames around on my idea of hell.

Giving the fact that it is a place for eternal punishment, I guess hell will change its appearance from person to person. For a pedophile, for example, it might be a place in which children will eternally torture and rape him with sadistic instruments; or a murderer will have its flesh eaten and ripped apart by demons, and so...

For me, hell must be a place in which no other music than reggaeton and radiohead is played, while I'm forced to swim in a pool filled with worms and leeches; mixed with short breaks in which I'm forced to watch demons smke joints I will never ever be able to reach. and the only food it's available to me are eggs. Hell, indeed.

It's a little hard to react to such 'hellish' environments when you are incapable of feeling anything. A fully functional brain is obviously necessary for grasping such sensations.

Thus death itself rescues you from the concept of 'hell' or 'heaven' you thought you knew. I can't picture it any other way so long as I can still react to my concepts.

First we have to be able to detect subatomic properties of the soul for which the rate and volume can be measured. However, Hell should be infinitely expandable so long as there's infinite traffic going through. This is evident in any working business or system.

But this doesn't prove Heaven exists just because fewer people are going to Hell, the same laws would apply to Heaven and Earth as well. However, without the circle of life, the Earth can't appear to be infinitely 'expandable.' And if everyone is going to Heaven, then the concept of evil would have to be further investigated. Is everyone's religion right? This would contradict what the divine word is proposing of worshiping only one god. Is all types of suffering finally eliminated? It's hard to keep a working system without occasionally recovering from error or pain. Seems to be no longer a sense of justice if everything is constantly forgivable.

"Few religions are definite about the size of Heaven, but on planet Earth the Book of Revelation (ch. XXI, v.16) gives it as a cube 12,000 furlongs on a side. This is somewhat less than 500,000,000,000,000,000,000 cubic feet. Even allowing that the Heavenly Host and other essential services take up at least two thirds of this space, this leaves about one million cubic feet of space for each human occupant - assuming that every creature that could be called 'human' is allowed in, and that the human race eventually totals a thousand times the number of humans alive up until now. This is such a generous amount of space that it suggest that room has also been provided for some alien races or - a happy thought - that pets are allowed."

Life is what you make of it. Heaven/hell. & well

"What if a demon were to creep after you one night, in your loneliest loneliness, and say, 'This life which you live must be lived by you once again and innumerable times more; and every pain and joy and thought and sigh must come again to you, all in the same sequence. The eternal hourglass will again and again be turned and you with it, dust of the dust!' Would you throw yourself down and gnash your teeth and curse that demon? Or would you answer, 'Never have I heard anything more divine'?"

Maybe hell (if it exists) is just a collection of our own personal fears. Like my hell would be me getting raped constantly and all of my interactions with people outside of the raping would be with men that saw me as inferior to them in every way. Whereas, someone else's hell could be insects crawling on them in the dark with no way out.

If hell is supposed to be punishment, then I think it would vary from person to person because we all fear different things and certain punishments wouldn't be so bad for some people as they would for others.

Christianity, God, heaven and hell do not exist. And I can prove that to you in one Einstein-approved paragraph:

Each of us does possess a "soul", a form of inextinguishable energy. When our physical body dies, that "soul" energy goes in to a great Mulligatawny in the cosmos - joining in to and becoming a part of what we think of as "God". Einstein's theory of relativity proves that basically all-is-one. "Relativity" is represented by the infinitely repeated patterns of "nature", starting from subatomic particles and continuing through cells, creatures, planets and the wider universe (known and unknown); shapes and systems are repeated through ever-larger dimensions. This illustrates clearly what words put just beyond reach: that all in our universe is indeed one. That our universe - at once both cold and loving - is both a home and a prison that each of us are destined never to leave. And if an infinite pattern of other universes exists, it's none of our concern. We have (at least) 14 billion light years of our own existence to contend with. Existential matters are not our concern. We are imprisoned and confined to our own universe for ever and ever.

So embrace reincarnation, and get yourselves together before your own judgement day comes.

You should check out some stuff by Robert Anton Wilson. He drew a parallel between Einstein's relativity and Aleister Crowley's, and united two seemingly contradictory trains of thought into his expansion of Leary's model of consciousness.

Hell is utopia, because in utopia everything holds still and nothing ever changes. You could have happiness at one step from you, but you'll never take it as you're where you're and that is where you will always be, dreaming and hoping in vain.

It would be far worse than anything you could ever imagine. Constant torture for ever and ever, but you can't die or get a break from the pain and suffering and torment. It's being burned alive but you can't ever have the luxury of death after a few moments of such excruciating pain. Awful place. I sincerely hope it doesn't exist in any way, shape, or form. I had nightmares about it while a young lad in christian school. Still scares the shit out of me to this day, even though I try not to believe in things like that.

I always thought of Earth being hell, and the space between Earth and 'Heaven' being life. Past that, you reach heaven. Which makes perfect sense. WE LIVE IN HELL. We must float into empty space to be Free(d of pain). never get to heaven. I don't believe in either. I think Hell is used to scare the religious public that if you do not believe in their religion, you will go there. A scare tactic. And heaven is used as a reward for believing in their religion. You will be free and happy is you believe. If not, the Birds Of Hell Await.

I've also had that in mind as well. I could see how it could be eternal torment of any kind. The excruciating pain would be extreme as it is perpetual mentally, emotionally and physically. To me, it wouldn't even have to be fire and brimstone. It could just be anything the evokes the worst fear, sadness and pain into you without any respite and remorse.

I also have an impossible time trying to wrap my mind around that being loving at all, considering how the Bible even says to love your enemies, yet the creation and overall implementation of Hell to me, comes across as the most vengeful and sadistic type of act ever, considering how it's supposed to be the penalty for sinning and being sinner.

Oh, and to make matters worse, sin is also in the emotions and the thoughts. I thought I'd make some examples out some of the 10 commandments. I'm also going by the Christian Hell, because that's what I was brought up to believe in as well. This is just what I've learned recently. I wasn't even taught this growing up as I found out that most Christian parents, at least form my church don't teach this stuff to their children. It seems like a lot of them are unaware of this too.

It was quite mind-boggling for me to learn that if you're angry at somebody and fighting them verbally, you have already broken the commandment "Thou shalt not murder." You don't even have to go as far as hating somebody or even laying one finger on them.

If you look at anybody or anything and have any sexual desires outside of a monogamous heterosexual marriage, you have already broken "Thou shalt not commit adultery." There are also Bible verses that already say that fornicators will go to Hell, so it's pretty much saying that people having sex in the overall terms and context of a monogamous heterosexual marriage are the only ones not breaking "Thou shalt not commit adultery." This also made casual sex out of the question.

It obviously helped me understand more and more why there clearly are a lot of Christians that are also completely against strip clubs/bars, pornography and masturbation, as those very things contribute to breaking, "Thou shalt not commit adultery." So according to the Bible, it's actually possible to commit adultery all alone.

By simply coveting other people's things, you have also broken, "Thou shalt not steal." This goes back to the concept of sinning in the heart and mind.

And these are just a few out of the many laws that need to be followed in order to not go to Hell while having a relationship with God that requires faith and prayer, which obviously would be impossible for those that don't believe in God and Christianity. (Heck, there are even other denominations trying to claim who goes to Hell or not too.)

It's why I sometimes try not to think about such things, knowing that such things get you to Hell. I understand that I'm taught that Jesus dying on the cross also protects believers from Hell, but with the mere idea that unbelievers go to Hell also shook me up because you don't even have to be a full blown atheist. Never mind that I find it wrong to go to Hell for not believing in Christianity to start with, but the mere thought of waking up in Hell for even a little doubt is also just as horrifying to me. I still can't wrap my mind around that being a loving concept at all, because all I can see is hatred, sadness and fear. I'd definitely select eternal death over Hell.

And while eternal life is a goal for Christians to go Heaven, Hell is also eternal life too. However, from what I've noticed, Adventists don't believe in an eternal Hell, and they certainly believe in the Lake of Fire. But without a doubt, the concept still shook me up and scared and scarred me for life.


It would be far worse than anything you could ever imagine. Constant torture for ever and ever, but you can't die or get a break from the pain and suffering and torment. It's being burned alive but you can't ever have the luxury of death after a few moments of such excruciating pain. Awful place. I sincerely hope it doesn't exist in any way, shape, or form. I had nightmares about it while a young lad in christian school. Still scares the shit out of me to this day, even though I try not to believe in things like that.

You've worded it a lot better than I could've. I'm sorry for rambling a bit again, but this topic has scared me all my life, so it has always hit home to me. I just thought of quoting you and responding to this post of your because it has captured EXACTLY what I had in mind when it came to Hell. As of right now, and as ridiculous as it could sound to those that have a 100% disbelief in Hell, I might be plagued with the fear of Hell until the day I die. I sometimes wish that I never was taught about Hell to start with.

The mere thought/question, "What if I wake up in Hell?" is just that frightening and maddening. But yes, you really nailed it for me right there, as I'm also not religious these days, but the fear and guilt still happen to follow me from time to time. The idea of Hell is also as sickening as it's sad/scary too.


I always thought of Earth being hell, and the space between Earth and 'Heaven' being life. Past that, you reach heaven. Which makes perfect sense. WE LIVE IN HELL. We must float into empty space to be Free(d of pain). never get to heaven. I don't believe in either.

You will be free and happy is you believe. If not, the Birds Of Hell Await.
I could also see how Earth can be both a literal and a figurative Hell of it's own too. I've definitely considered that many times before. I liked how you worded it as well.

My church also believes in what The Good Person Test is trying to spread. This single-handedly helped me gain a further and deeper understanding as to what Christians actually believe whenever it comes to sinning and going to Hell. There are also other sites similar to it, with the same exact purpose/message.
