Why? I would ALWAYS be ok with the existence of hell. I know in that case I would go there for sure, but I would boil/burn happily in my tar barrel, knowing the other barrels around me contain some guys I know...

All I wanted was to go somewheres; all I wanted was a change, I warn’t particular. She said it was wicked to say what I said; said she wouldn’t say it for the whole world; she was going to live so as to go to the good place. Well, I couldn’t see no advantage in going where she was going, so I made up my mind I wouldn’t try for it. But I never said so, because it would only make trouble, and wouldn’t do no good.

This was from last month, but I thought it would be worth mentioning. James Stewart, author of many calculus textbooks, passed away December 3. http://blog.cengage.com/james-stewar...g-inspiration/

Townes also did important work in astrophysics:

In 1985, after a decade spent studying infrared and radio emissions, he led a team of researchers that discovered a massive black hole at the center of the Milky Way galaxy, a finding that dramatically advanced the understanding of the universe.
