    How much you are sure that you're right ?
    are you 100% sure that the hell fire doesn't exist and if yes then why ?

    Did you think for awhile that the hell fire may exist ?

    Will you feel regret if you found yourself in the hell fire afterlife or you won't care about it ?

    As sure as anyone else. Though I'm more sure that the people claiming hell are wrong then I am right.

    even when I was a believer I didn't put much stock or at least thought to hell.

    If I end up in hell then god is evil and wasn't worthy of my worship anyways.

    Is this the Christian hell fire you're talking about?

    That I do not belive in hell,for what should I?

    Have I ever stolen something? Have I ever done wrong to people in need?

    Have I ever caused massacre? Have I ever killed someone rather than mosquitoes ? Here ,in africa, I encountered scorpions bigger than jumbo shrimps,I just led them leave my sleeping place.

    I have not even dismissed one simple overtime hour of the africans,( for any 3rd worlder,too)I always have given them more than they expected.

    I don't believe in Hell. There cannot be any human deserving that. That's garbage.

    No human deserves that and there is simply no Hell.

    According to your orthodox belief system, a pork eating one deserves Hell. So,does that mean the ones who do not eat pork directly diverted to heaven? If not,why?

    Would you like to spend some time for your sins in Hell? What would you gain?

    "Hell" seems a bizarre circumstance to posit as real.
    One could propose innumerable versions of Hell, each with different conditions & criteria for entry.
    So there's no way to conduct one's affairs to avoid being sent there.
    No need to worry about things unknowable which one cannot plan for.

    I imagine I'd be lightly miffed if I found out I was going to spend eternity being boiled in excrement or being grilled over a flame.

    I am just as certain as anyone else. No one knows for sure, we are just waiting to be surprised.

    I'm 100% sure that a place of eternal torture in the afterlife doesn't exist. The G-d I worship isn't illogical nor psychotic. The G-d I worship is merciful and compassionate.

    I am certain that some of scripture is being misunderstood so I shall assume that scripture about hell is being misunderstood also.
    I believe that hell which holy people wrote about is real. I do not know what it is. I do know that it is not a place of torture. God is love.

    That was why I feel in love with Judaism.

    I do not worship a God,since worshiping means nothing to me, He is in me,I am in Him,very simple. But I do love Hashem.

    That was why I doubted christianty.
    Even Hitler does not deserve a so called hell forever.He was a maniac, a maniac is a person whose brain and faculity does not seem to work well;a disorder.

    Given the abject lack of reliable evidence, I believe there is currently 50% chance of there being some form of continued existence after physical death. Given the almost infinite possible forms such a continuation could take though, I think the chances of any single proposed example being the right one is minimal.

    Nope. I’ve been agnostic as long as I can remember and when I heard of the varieties of “Hell” you’re referring to, they never struck me as especially viable. I’ve since discovered the imagery and concepts aren’t even entirely consistent with the scripture that inspired them so who knows what to believe.

    I think regret is the wrong word as there is little I can do to knowingly affect that outcome. How would you feel if you found yourself in the hell of a different religion (or the hell of your own, having made a subtle error in interpretation)?

    How sure are you that the others are wrong?

    What if the others were right and you were wrong ?

    You won't regret the hell fire just by accepting that God is evil by doing so ?

    There is no proof that a fiery afterlife exists with pitchforks, boiling crap and being flayed alive. If there was proof I might be less than 100% sure.

    No, but I wished for a time that there would be one (though not permanent) for some bad people. I since overcame that wish.

    Regret? No, but I would be surprised at the evil creature that sent good people to eternal torture.

    We can't decide who deserves the hell, a pastor and an Imam can be in the hell as well,
    it depends more in our deeds than what we believe in.

    I am sorry but that's why there are so many folks kill themselves for almost nothing in Nordic. No offense,if did,I do apologize.

    Are you sure that I can't throw a football to the moon?
    How sure are you?
    Are you 100% sure that I can't throw a football to the moon? If yes, then why?

    Did you think for a while that I could throw a football to the moon?

    Will you feel silly if you found out that I could throw a football to the moon after doubting me?

    I don't see the connection. It's more to do with less sunlight and culture of keeping your problems to yourself.

    If God is merciful the way you believe it to be then why many people died and will die by earthquakes and by other
    means, why God ordered Moses to kill people who were against him, do you think your God is a violent
    in one specific time but not in the afterlife, if so then why you think God will be nice and kind in the afterlife ?

    In the religion I was raised in(Which I disbelieved always), it had nothing to do with deeds and all to do with belief and relationship with God.
