Whether or not you actually believe there is such a thing as a hell, these sound like very scary places to visit. :skull:

To prove an alleged "Real-Life" situation, you post a two-minute clip from a fictional movie you found on YouTube.

Dude, never let a YouTube video do your talking or thinking for you!

The video clip (from Lucio Fulci's 'The Beyond') was just a bit of humor for visualization. Did you even click the link I posted at the top listing these places?

They are real places around the world said to be gateways to either hell or the underworld according to the myths and folklore of the locals. Tourists even pay tickets to travel to some of these places.

Yes, I clicked on the link, and that is five minutes of my life wasted.  I have been reading articles like that since the 1960s, and they are all based on the same things: "People believe...", "Legend has it...", "... said to be...", et cetera.  No material evidence, and nothing but anecdotes and hearsay (and now fictional YouTube videos) to back up the claims.

Well geez, if you have no interest in any of these places then why did you feel the need to respond with such a snarky attitude? :?

Like Most Everything Else in Mythology
And Stories; There Are Real Life Lessons

To Be Heard

That Are

Metaphors

For The Essence

of All the New Colors
Of Heaven; Grey SHades
of Purgatory; And BLacK
Abyss of the DarK NiGHT(S)

Of the SoUL That May Extend

Out For Years, Yes, 66 Months in
my Case And Sadly, A Thousand Years
In A Second Of Life in REAL HeLL ON EartH

Within For the Rest of a Breathing Life that
Is Surely A Living Dead Hell on Two Feet if

One Is Fortunate

Enough to Be

Able to Still Stand Up Straight...

Thing Is, You Don't Have To Do Anything

Immoral, Or Unethical to Go to HeLL ON EartH At
All When Hell is Real Within; For You See in Hell WHeRE

Demons in Silly Little Hollywood Movies Like the Ones

You Copy Here on this Internet Site, Are actually

An Illustration of Heaven

In Hell; As In Hell You

Don't Get to Feel Fear,

You Don't Get to Feel

Hope, There Are No Feelings

At All; Only Empty Time that is

Again the Perception Otherwise of

A Thousand Years in One Second Multiplied
Beyond All Measure For Every Breath of Life

Where
there is
Never Now

An Inhale

of Peace

Or Exhale

Of Love Either

Nor Even A Memory

If that Place Ever Existed

Before in the Current Experience

Of Life Eternally Now in Hell; It Makes

me Seriously Giggle, Every time on this

Internet Site, Someone Has Tried to Dismiss
me as Less, or Strange, or Different, Or Not

Valuable Enough to Exist here....

If They Could Spend

Just one

Second

Where i have

Been Forever in Hell

They Would See How Foolish

It is to Try to Bring A Real Innocent
Devil Down to Any level Lower than

They've Been In Life For No Reason Yet

This is Part of Nature too; i got to Go For

Not Doing Anything Bad; Just Going Beyond What

My Human Nature Was in My Parameters of Human Potential then...

And Again...

Difference Now
i've Learned to Be
FRiEnDS With Gravity..

Balance In Body Makes
Balance in Mind Creates
Inhaling Peace Exhaling Love

For All in Existence And Surely

Makes Folks Experiencing HeLL ON EartH
Far Less In Pain and Numb Than i've Experienced
As A Real Innocent Devil on Earth So DAMNED EASY

TO FORGIVE

NO MATTER

HOW HARD

THEY TRY TO
BRING AN X-DEVIL DOWN...

Have you ever Danced With
The Devil in the Pale Moonlight...

i've met the Devil in Person and
i am Surely Not Afraid of my Angel Now...

Or Anyone Who Might think they have the
Authority to Send Anyone to A Lower Place than i've Already Been...

A Place that Any Mythological Demon/Devil Beyond Fear Would Dare to Tread...

AND AGAIN YOU
GET TO GO NOW

NO MATTER HoW
INNOCENT AND
KIND A HUMAN BEING YOU MIGHT BE...

Nature's Greatest Rule is Balance; Fail Balance
AND PAY THE REAL

KARMA...

OF HELL
WITHIN
ETERNALLY
NOW FOR REAL...

OTHERWISE Your
YOUTUBE VIDEO MAKES
A REAL DEVIL GIGGLE FOR
A BLESSING OF HELL IN HELL THAT
OTHERWISE WOULD BE HEAVEN OF FEAR IN HELL...

Yeah, Baby, the Mythology of "Dante's Rings of Hell" Are Very Real

Like Going Without Sleep for 40 Days with the Worst Pain Known
to Humankind assessed as Literally Worse than Crucifixion Torture;
The Suicide Disease Lasting 66 Months From Wake to Sleep, Type Two
Trigeminal Neuralgia Among 19 Life Threatening Disorders in Synergy

That No Drug
Would Touch;

Only an Alpha
Blocker Would
Allow 1 Hour of
Shallow CardBoard
Sleep for the First 35
Out of 40 Days and No
Sleep for the Last 5 Days...

The Record by the Way for
No Sleep is 264 Hours, 11 Days...

Every Day Another Ring of Dante's Hell
Deeper From the Get Go of the Hell in the
Spring 'Lent' Period of 2008... Every Day

Can the Pain Get Any Worse, Will The
Numb Get Any More Empty The

Answer Always Back

From Within from

The Devil i am

Then, Yes, Yes,

There is No End to
The Depths of Pain and Numb....

Yet, You See it Was No Youtube
Clip With Spine Tingling Scenes...

Just a Thousand Years of Hell Within
Every Second That No One Else Could

See and Experience, Yet me in my Own
Mind Constructed Experience of Hell Then...

If only i had learned BEFORE TO SAY NO
WHEN FOLKS SAID DO MORE; i Thought that
if i lost 'the Job', it would be the End of the World...

True i Learned
my Lesson
Well and

i Found Out

Both HeLL And

Real Heaven Are

ReaL ON EartH; Hell is
The Place of All Time Eternally
Now Empty and Cold; Heaven is the
Place of No Time Eternally Now Just Joy
For All That Exists as the Essence of LoVE iNCaRNaTE

iN A Human

Being Loving

it All And Even

Able to Forgive A
Devil in Hell me for 'You'

See Without Forgiveness for
Self and All Others There Is NO
GOD NO REAL TRUE LOVE WITHIN

SEEING LiGHT iN DarK...

In Just my

Devil And

Angel Opinions Of
Course Weighing in
Feather LiGHT NoW
FRiEnDS With Gravity
SPiRiT Wind LoVE iN LiGHT FOR REAL FOR ALL..:)

What snarky attitude?  I simply have interest in those places (and others like them).

As Douglas Adams once said, "Isn't it enough to see that a garden is beautiful without having to believe that there are fairies at the bottom of it too?"

Fengdu, City of Ghosts looks a cool place to visit, huh?

Lol, I like the "Nothing-to-be-Done Bridge"!

There are times when a trip to Styx would totally fill the bill......though Styx is more a gateway to Oblivion than a gateway to Hell.

I suspect a misunderstanding here. Questions:

1) To Fnord: Did you interpret KingOfSpades's post as a claim that these various places are actual, literal "gateways to Hell"? (If not, then what "alleged 'Real-Life' situation" do you think KingOfSpades was claiming?)

2) To KingOfSpades: Do you believe that these places are in fact actual, literal "gateways to Hell"? Or are they just "scary places to visit"? Do you even believe in "Hell" (in the popular Christian sense, at least)?

If you can get into Hell through a volcano, does that mean the damned can escape by climbing out of a volcano? Hell might not be forever after all.

I went here when I was in Queenstown (Jan 2011), thought it was hilarious.
