Hmmm, now there's a thought. Hell is Nothing. Since nothing cannot exist as anything, maybe when those who have not found their spiritual connection die, they simply become nothing, or hell. Also, since God is infinite, the only thing outside of God is nothing, so if hell is a place apart from God, we again are led to the conclusion that hell is nothing, or non-existance.

What kind of punishment is non-existence though? I don't believe in a literal Hell mind you; but all suffering would cease, if one ceased to exist would it not?
If you weren't conscious of existing or didn't exist at all; that would be better than all of the suffering that most beings go through in this physical existence.
If hell exists what crime committed can be so bad that the perpetrator is bound there for all eternity. Even the very worst sins and actions committed by us here on earth must surely have there atonement point where we have paid for it and learnt our lesson.

If Jesus really did have some sort of 'message'... it's been lost for ages. Forget the bible guys... even if it was at some point valid... it's been corrupted by the hands of man.
