spoke of his horrifying ordeal and claimed he met two “ferocious” demons that “tore his flesh open” during his visit.


He told Christian broadcaster TCT Network that he had an out-of-body experience when he woke up in the middle of the night to get a drink.
He said he was pulled from his body and then dragged to hell through a long, dark tunnel.
He said: “It was getting hotter and I landed on a stone floor in a prison cell in hell. There were stone walls, bars it was more like a dungeon – a filthy, stinking, smoke-filled dungeon.

Don’t Believe in Hell? You Will When You Get There

The spooky encounter with the firey world happened in November 1998 and he has since penned a book about his ordeal – selling over a million copies.
He continued: “The heat was so unbearable, I wondered how could I be alive. Why am I here, how did I get here?”

What About Hell?

But Bill wasn’t alone, he claimed that he met two enormous demons with a “ferocious demeanor” in the prison cell and they were pacing around and blaspheming.
He explained: “And then they directed this hatred they had towards god towards me. One demon picked me up and threw me into the wall of this prison cell. I felt as if bones had broken. Now I know a spirit doesn’t have bones, but it felt that way.


“I wondered why am I still alive through this. The other demon dug its claws into my chest and just tore the flesh open. This is actually happening.”
He then claimed that the prison cell was then lit up, by what he believed to be God, before it was plunged into darkness again.
Then his prison cell because a pit of fire, full of ‘real flames’, according to Bill.
Then to add to the horrifying scene, he then saw “thousands of people in this pit, screaming and burning”, adding that they looked like skeletons.
He said that there were various degrees or punishment and that he was kept in isolation, adding that “the stench of hell is the most foul, putrid, disgusting odour.”
Others have come forward to share their experiences on Reddit.


Lee Sedol Retirement Sends Shockwaves Throughout Gaming World

The announced retirement of Go champion Lee Sedol

has sent shock waves through not only the Go community. In 2016, Lee, who was considered the best Go player in the world, lost a set of matches 4-1 against AlphaGo, an AI system developed by the Google-owned company DeepMind.

“With the debut of AI in Go games, I’ve realized that I’m not at the top even if I become the number one through frantic efforts,” Lee told Yonhap News in Korea. “Even if I become the number one, there is an entity that cannot be defeated.” (https://www.vice.com/en_us/article/qvg7pb/go-pro-lee-sedol-quits-says-ai-is-too-tough-to-beat)

‘I kind of felt powerless’

Lee told the press at the time he had “misjudged” AlphaGo’s abilities: “I apologise for being unable to satisfy a lot of people’s expectations. I kind of felt powerless.”

Lee’s first realisation that AlphaGo was playing at a level w-a-a-a-y above him appears to have come at move W107 in Game 1, as noticed by this thread on Reddit. We’ve made a gif of the move below. AlphaGo, playing in white, drops a stone on the right side of the board about halfway up, at the lower diagonal from three black stones arranged vertically. It’s completely unexpected because it seems to be unconnected with the rest of the white strategy on the board.

Normally, Lee stays quite still during games, as he stares at the board and thinks.

Not this time.
‘Lee literally dropped his jaw. [His] reaction was not aired in the official YouTube live stream’

“Lee literally dropped his jaw at W102. Lee’s reaction was not aired in the official YouTube live stream. The move is considered the tide-turning move.”

You can see a video of the move here, at timestamp 2.30.20. This gif shows that at first he seems paralysed for several seconds. Then he rocks backwards in surprise, before running a hand over his hair in dismay. For Lee, that’s a lot of physical drama in comparison to his normal, stoic demeanour:

It was Game 2 when AlphaGo’s superiority was confirmed, as noted by Wired. Move 37 by AlphaGo baffled everyone who saw it:

[European champion] Fan Hui thought the move was rather odd. But then he saw its beauty. “It’s not a human move. I’ve never seen a human play this move,” he says. “So beautiful.”

AlphaGo, playing black, puts a stone on the right-middle of the board, at a diagonal to an isolated white stone. This next photo shows Lee’s reaction: He gets up from his chair and walks away from the board.
