Your basket begins its journey in a kind of foyer where souls are purified. As you wait for a few months, you become aware of your many misdeeds throughout your life and are filled with a sense of shame. You hear the place referred to as Gehinom.
You are being punished according to which religion?
Your basket floats down to land before a large scale and a tribune of 42 immortal judges. Your heart is weighed on the plates of the scale, with a feather on the other side. Your heart sinks! Your soul is thrown to the devourers.
You have offended the gods of which ancient culture?
You peek over the rim of your basket and peer into the outer darkness. There are very few souls here, only the most wicked. You can recognize Cain from the Bible, but you are mostly surrounded by demons and devils.
You have found yourself in which religion's "outer darkness"?
Your basket floats down rivers of blood, pus and scorpions. You arrive at a cave in Guatemala. You are at the doorstep of the infamous Xibalba, ruled by demons! Houses full of jaguars, knives and snakes await within. The demons seek to trick and humiliate you.
Which ancient culture told stories of the dreadful Xibalba?
Your little basket is delivered by the stork and you find yourself reborn into a world of great suffering called Naraka. You burn in the fires of Avici or freeze in the blizzards of Arbuda for predetermined periods of time until your karmic debt is repaid.
Which faith would subject you to such punishment?
It's time to take the basket very far back in time. Here in the pit of Tartarus you see Ixion chained to his wheel, Sisyphus pushing his boulder and Tantalus trying in vain to reach a dangling branch of food.
You are now in the hell of which ancient culture?
Your basket arrives in a place called Jahannam. You see a tree covered in thorny fruit, and the souls around you eat the fruit even though it hurts them. At the bottommost pit of Jahannam you see those who were hypocrites during their life, pretending to believe in one god when they truly believed in many.
You are now in the hell of which faith?
In contrast to the terrors that have come before, your basket now comes to rest in complete stillness. No torment, no torture, no fire and brimstone. You simply lie in a grave, unconscious, for millennia on end. Suddenly, the hand of Jesus throws your basket into the eternal fire!
Which Protestant religion would subject you to such abrupt agony?
Seventh Day Adventist
Your trusty handbasket lands gently on the edge of Limbo, staring down into nine circles of Hell. You see Satan himself bound in ice at the very bottom in the pit of Cocytus. Virgil once guided Dante through this same horrible place.
This view of hell was the product of which region and era of Christianity?
Eastern Medieval Orthodoxy
Romantic French Naturalism
Renaissance German Protestantism
Western Medieval Catholicism
