In the infinity diverse multiverse which you & I believe in there must 
be scientifically engineered hells full of boiling pitch and demons with
pitchforks, "creepy-crawly things or lakes of lava".  Of course we 
can find shaky super-rationalist based arguments, to say that the 
heavens must outnumber the hells (just many modern Christians 
prefer to believe in heaven but not hell), but hells must exist 
*somewhere* in this paradigm.  This is one reason *not* rely on 
universal resurrection, but to try to live in *this* reality, forever.

See you in hell, buddy.  :-(
