And the readout is...
Well Hitler and the naziz will be remembered for what they did in ww2...the jews will be remembered for what they are doing in gaza/middle east...and their mozzad doing in nations around the world...
Question is...who will be the most hated...
I still don't see earth being a hell. Our concept of a hell is based on concepts from religious texts. Scouring the various texts across the earth, we don't come anywhere close to a hell from either the Abrahamic or Dharmic faiths.
The Hells on either side, Dharmic or Abrahamic, are not pleasant even without the inmates.
If the saced texts are dead, then they have no value in your argument. The secular also feel the texts are dead and the writings mean nothing to them.
Most of the death and destruction wrought on this planet are from the secular. The Soviet Union and the People's Republic of China in the 20th century took the lives of around 100 million people. The National Socialists were not far behind and they were for the most part secular. Those three committed the worst atrocities in the history of the human race. That is the result when G-d, Abrahmic or Dharmic, dies in a culture, a Nietzschean ubermensch rises in its place and insanity results.
The most religious people on the planet wall themselves off in monasteries and break off contact with the rest of the world.
Even the early Gnostics did that.
Trying to save the world will drive you crazy. Adepts and monks have known that for millenia. You can't reason with the unreasonable. The best that we can do is help those in need and in the process focus on enlightenment. Don't add to the chaos, don't be a part of the chaos.

The term race or racial group usually refers to the categorization of humans into populations or ancestral groups on the basis of various sets of heritable characteristics. The physical features commonly seen as indicating race are salient visual traits such as skin color, cranial or facial features and hair texture.
On July 5, 1950, the Knesset, Israel's Parliament, enacted item 5710-1950 the Law of Return. Follow-up legislation on immigration matters was contained in the Nationality Law of 1952. These two pieces of legislation combine religion, history, nationalism, and democracy, in a way unique to Israel. Together, the legislation grants special rights to Jews with the aim of facilitating their immigration to the Jews' ancestral homeland. The Law of Return declares that Israel constitutes a home not only for the inhabitants of the State, but also for all members of the Jewish people everywhere—be they living in poverty and fear of persecution or in affluence and safety. The law gives the right of return to those born Jews (having a Jewish mother or maternal grandmother), those with Jewish ancestry (having a Jewish father or grandfather) and converts to Judaism (Orthodox, Reform, or Conservative denominations—not secular—though Reform and Conservative conversions must take place outside the state, similar to civil marriages).
