I have concluded a long while ago, that if there is a proverbial hell, this is it. By "this", i mean a material world of differences making up the environment that mankind, or any other "sentient being" seems to exist in. It is my belief that Jesus understood this, and that all his references to "hell", were simply a description of the status quo, the experience of man. One of his descriptions, if we can believe anything the bible says about him, was, "And there shall be gnashing of teeth", which i translate to mean, there will be endless arguing among men, jawboning each other to death. Endless arguments are ignited by a state of not-knowing. I've described not-knowing as a state of ignorance as well as a state of faith. If everybody knew everything, all arguments would cease and desist. The alternative to all-knowledge, is, as i've said, faith, which is a way to deal with ignorance. As such, faith is simply that which we wish were true, without actually knowing what is true. Discuss.
