Christian Eschatology

Hell is the mythic form of Earth, an intuition or premonition of a possible future state, terrestrial and bleak, hot and enslaved by incarnations of wickedness. Heaven, similarly, is the mythic form of a possible future, one that is not of this Earth, extraterrestrial, weightless, juvenile, omniscient.

Christian eschatology hits the nail almost on the head. It’s off by an extraneous supernaturalism.
"Seek simplicity and distrust it."
-- Alfred North Whitehead
