Re: !!!!great site!!!!

A quote that I open the section on the Christian version of hell completely validates what you say about God, Satan and Hell... they were invented as means to make people behave better.

The quote starts... "The more enlightened sages of the Mysteries viewed such horrors as merely stories to encourage better moral behavior. Plutarch calls the terrors of the Underworld an 'improving myth'. The Christian philosopher Origen likewise argued that the literal terrors of hell were false, but they ought to be publicized in order to scare simpler believers" from The Jesus Mysteries by Freke & Gandy, p90, as quoted on my page about Hell.

Plutarch (2000 year old philosopher) knew the same as you have realized.
