Method

A common response to the human soul is that there isn't one because science can't detect it. However, we first detected gravitational waves in 2015. What else can't science detect? We don't know, science can't detect it.

Sheol refers to life beyond the grave, quite literally an underworld realm of the dead. It's also modified in a variety of ways which can be grouped to correspond to the main regions of the interior of the Earth.

This Place of Torment

We're at the end of our trail of deduction for today and the only conclusion which we can reach is that the rich man is in the molten core of the Earth, the pit. Abraham and Lazarus are in the lower mantle, the midst of hell.

Direction of Motion

The direction of motion is a clue that we've used to put all of the puzzle pieces together. We could induce a meaning to a passage, or we could compare it to our model and deduce that the pit is lower than the grave.

Ascending and Descending

If our souls start in hell then this life is our one chance to escape it forever. We have been given an opportunity to respond to the truth which has been revealed to us. No one has an excuse.

We (that's me and the Holy spirit) have been working towards the construction of a model of the interior of the Earth which fully integrates every possible way that hell or the afterlife is referred to in the Bible.
