Since this encyclopedia caters to children, I feel tempted to pagemove it to "H-E-Double-Hockeystick". It caters to foreigners with limited language abilities too. Oh well. --Shultz 09:03, 17 March 2006 (UTC)

I think that writing about Hell is pefectly fine. In this case hell is not a swear. thenk you and god bless.--Sir James Paul 21:33, 15 November 2006 (UTC)

Capitalization[change source]

Should it be capitalized "Hell" or not? As of right now, the word appears both capitalized and uncapitalized several times throughout, and I would like to make it consistent. Thoughts on which it should be? Kansan (talk) 16:01, 12 April 2010 (UTC)
When referring to the single place called "Hell", it should be capitalized (since it is a name). In other contexts, it could be lower case (i.e. "There's aren't different hells for men and women"), since this is a descriptive word. I think in this article, most (perhaps all) cases should be capitalized. EhJJTALK 16:28, 12 April 2010 (UTC)
In the case of this article, all of the uses of the word would be capitalized as per that guideline, so I have done this. Kansan (talk) 18:34, 12 April 2010 (UTC)

Hell in Islam[change source]

The article reads: "However, Muslims believe almost everyone will eventually be forgiven and taken to the Islamic Heaven (Jannah)". From what I have read about Islam, my understanding is that the mainstream views within Islam in no way represent such a form of universalism. Some Muslims believe that Allah may choose to save some from Hell, but I don't think that it approaches anything close to all. Kansan (talk) 05:24, 26 May 2010 (UTC)

Hmm, I agree. Perhaps you should take that out. Belle tête-à-tête 05:33, 26 May 2010 (UTC)
