This is where I think we diverge. All the texts I have read indicate that in hell, the common grave, there is no consciousness at all. Verse after verse compares death to sleep, the closest example that exists. A state of unconsciousness. When you consider all the verses regarding everlasting life in totality, they clearly show that there are 2 resurrections. The first one to life in heaven, and the second to life on earth. There are also 2 judgements, that of the living and that of the resurrected ones (second resurrection). Why 2 judgements and 2 resurrections? Because justice demands that everyone deserves the same opportunity to take their stand on God's side. There are many millions, or even billions of people that never had a chance to learn the truth about God and Christ that have died throughout history. For the living know that they shall die: but the dead know not any thing, neither have they any more a reward; for the memory of them is forgotten. (Eccl. 9:5) Whatsoever thy hand findeth to do, do it with thy might; for there is no work, nor device, nor knowledge, nor wisdom, in the grave, whither thou goest. (Eccl. 9:10) There are plenty of posts in this thread about conspiracy theories, flat earth, dinosaurs, etc. Figured, let's take it up a few notches.
