Is there a hell?

In all religions of the world, hell is opposed to paradise. To try to answer this question, you need to understand what is hell? In other words, hell is such an “instance” where, after physical death, the sinner is serving a sentence for misdeeds during his lifetime. And the harder the sin, the worse the punishment.

Does hell exist?

So religious figures and fanatics, sending fear to their followers, could control the minds and feelings of people, their actions. On the one hand, religion protected believers from bad deeds, on the other - religious fanatics could control huge masses of people according to their own understanding.

But does hell really exist? Since no one returned from there, there is no evidence. Although books on religious topics describe it in detail. And in each religion the description is different. You can read more about this in the article How Hell Looks.

In 1989, a group of scientists working on the Kola Peninsula, drilled a hole 15 km deep and came across a strange cavity.According to scientists, the temperature in it reached 180 ° С, which made further drilling expensive and therefore impossible. They also made audio recordings to prove the existence of hell, recording horrifying sounds, moans and screams from the void on the microphone. The story immediately spread around the world and served as confirmation of the existence of hell.

But soon she was refuted. It was a recording of the soundtrack to the film "Bloody Baron" (1972). The high temperature was due to unusual geological anomalies found in that area, and they had nothing to do with hell.

Therefore, the question of the existence of hell remains open and concerns exclusively the religious beliefs of each individual person.
