To non-traditionalist believers out there i.e. Nones, Wiccans, Buddhists, Pagans, New Agers,
Non-denominational, and others of a metaphysical bent, do you strongly contend that heaven and hell is a rudimentary, elementary way to explain the higher and lower astral realms?

Not really, no. There's too much Christian dogma attached to the concepts of Heaven as a place of reward and Hell as a place of punishment. In that idea, Heaven and Hell are more a state of mind than anything else.
Higher vibrational realms house non-human entities of both good and bad alignment, lower realms like the physical plane and underworld are not necessarily evil or less than.

Why is it that Christians believe that Buddhists, Hindus, Pagans, Native Americans, etc. are all wrong in their beliefs and that they'll all go somewhere horrible when they die? Why can't we just accept that other people have different lives and different experiences, and let them believe how they...
