Also, there is a large group of Christians that believe that all mankind will be saved.
For God to lose a single being would make God a loser and that is something God is not,never has, and never will be.

I could be--and probably am--wrong on this, but if I remember my own History Channel learning on Hell, the Biblical version is really much less intense than how Hell is normally depicted. Most of the fire-and-brimstone ideals that we hold of Hell are actually from Dante's Inferno, I believe. The Bible basically states that Hell is just an absence of God.

Please excuse me for questioning the integrity of that statement, but if I'm not mistaken there is one being whom the Bible states as being condemned and he goes by many names i.e. satan, lucifer, devil, dragon, deciever, father of all lies, lest he be not forgotten. And the 1/3 whom followed him in rebellion. All these things are written in the Holy Sciptures, so if the Bible is the True Word of God I would not discount their inclusion when making such a statement.
