What if Hell really exists?
End of day, End of life
Hell: Fact or Fiction?
Mark Twain commented on how sad it was that natives on remote islands went to their graves never knowing there was a Hell. This place of everlasting torment has haunted our lives for centuries, and yet we still have no proof of its existence. It is a leap of faith into the abyss of fire and brimstone, designed to modify our behavior towards good instead of evil. We have 10 rules of civil behavior to guide us, 10 commandments that we shall not do or face the horrors of purgatory and everlasting Hell. A scary fate for all of us, if it is actually true. We would all behave ourselves, stop sinning like crazy and toe the party line.
The fact that we do not do these things is evidence that, deep down, we do not really believe in Hell or we figure one last repentance before we die will wipe the slate clean and we can ascend to the realm of goodness and light instead of to that other, hotter and nastier place.
Our society if there really was a Hell
If we all believed in Hell, we would not kill, cheat, lie, envy, lust after others, curse, work on the 7th day of rest (including shopping), steal or worship idols like movie and rock stars and so on. The fact that we do all these things in copious abundance is confirmation that we're all going to Hell. Is it all that difficult to obey the 10 Rules of Hell Avoidance? One might argue that because there are 10, the number is too big to obey. If there were only two or three, perhaps we could handle that number but ten? Really? One can barely keep track of what day it is let alone ten poorly-worded instructions on the path to the good life. No, the faith and belief that anyone can be rich and famous is the strongest drive in our society today.

What we need is proof?
What if there was concrete proof of the existence of Hell and it was a certainty that if you broke the covenant of the 10, you would be cast down into fiery damnation? As is often the case, the scientific advances made in the last few decades has given us photographic evidence of Hell, just like the near-death tales of a light at the end of the warm tunnel has spawned the confirmation in many people's minds of the definitive existence of Heaven. Just like our bodies may live after death (see Zombie Survival: What if Zombies were Real?), we now know that our soul's journey to Hell can be made with our cell phones attached. People have experienced a near-death episode and, rather than a warm tunnel of light, walked the path of the seven levels down through the depths of Hell itself. They snapped photos in their minds, as if carrying their phones with them and when dragged back to Earth through the marvels of modern medicine, discovered these mind's eye images stored on their IPhone or Android devices - yes, Hell appears to be operating-system agnostic.
