hell was named after a place in jerusalem where early jews first made child sacrifices, then burned their trash lol

In the Bronze age and beginning of the Israelite period, there were children sacrifices to the pagan God Molech held in the valley of the son-of-Hinnom (Gei Ben-Hinnom). The Israelites stopped this barbarous ritual, although the evil custom continued partially during the times of the Kings. For example, the King of Judah Manasseh (2 Cronicles 33 6:"And he caused his children to pass through the fire in the valley of the son of Hinnom"). The prophets, such as Jeremiah, tried to stop it (Jeremiah 7: 31: "And they have built the high places of Tophet, which is in the valley of the son of Hinnom, to burn their sons and their daughters in the fire; which I commanded them not, neither came it into my heart"). The sacrifice rituals have eventually ceased, but it continued to be used as place to burn the city garbage. The association of the valley with fire, smoke and evil earned it the Hebrew word for "hell" (GeiHennom). According to a tradition this site is the entrance to that evil place.

I try reading about these things with impartiality but I get about half-way into it and just go "Jesus this is stupid. What are we talking about here?"

Cremation, once viewed as the ultimate desecration of the human body, an insult to God who makes the resurrection happen, will soon surpass burial as Americans' preferred way to dispose of a corpse. Already, a third of Americans are cremated, not buried, and that trend line is headed straight up. Stephen Prothero, religion professor at Boston University and author of the forthcoming God Is Not One, believes that the rise in cremation is linked to a growing disregard for the doctrine of resurrection. "It seems fantastic and irrational that we're going to have a body in heaven," he says. Even the Roman Catholic Church has softened its stance on cremation: bodies are better, it said in 1997, but ashes will do in a pinch.

When we had some family members cremated they came back with a sticker on the box that said

Resurrection Reconstitution:
Add 2 cups of water and shake vigorously. Let stand in a cool dry place for 24 hours prior to the Rapture.

exactly and according to Matthew 27:52-53 there was a Zombie invasion!!

52The tombs broke open and the bodies of many holy people who had died were raised to life. 53They came out of the tombs, and after Jesus' resurrection they went into the holy city and appeared to many people.
