: yanniru: For most of the world, hell is life on earth. This is consistent with reincarnation where a poorly conducted life begets another life of suffering on earth, which is a "good as any" interpretation of the western scripture about hell.

You must have completely ignored all the "if" statements I made. I said that IF hell exists, and IF the definition of hell is one where it is impossible to leave, THEN the argument follows. You simply have a different definition for hell. By your definition, life and hell are synonymous, and the cycle of reincarnation can be broken. But even this definition of hell does not save the theist. Why would a benevolent God (who is still omnipotent and all knowing) subject all humans to a suffering filled life? God still knows those humans that will remain in hell forever, and willfully created them anyways. In this case he is still creating people for the sole purpose of sending them to hell!
