Suppose in the afterlife Hitler has been strapped to a device that will set him on fire for all of eternity. All that is needed to start this torture is the press of a button, and you have been given the task of pressing it. Would you press the button?
If you believe in hell do you believe it will consist of maximum torture for an infinite duration, or will it be something less severe than this?
What if the person strapped to the maximum torture device is a homosexual or an atheist? Would you press the button then?
As an atheist who faces this remote prospect I am curious how many people really believe I should burn forever.
