I guess the obvious question is, "Can you happily float back out again?"

'Cause if you can, it probably isn't a literal Hell.

In "his" all powerful outflow from within "his" literal, "hole,"( read well), would be the "imput" of "his" end. A continuation of all powerful love.


Interesting play on the words "well" and "hole". God is a fountain of love, a spring of living water, etc.

However, as I understand it a black hole is more of a gravitational sink than a source. If you want to suggest that hell represents black holes, a better analogy would be going down the plug-hole. Unfortunately, the Bible doesn't use that imagery.

Just for interest sake, life is energy and energy can be transformed, so were is the hole in my reasoning?


For a start, the premise that "life is energy" is faulty. The premise that God exists is also faulty, so any reasoning derived from it is inherently holey.
