Thoughts on mortality and general stupidity.

I'm becoming interested in post mortem topography. There's not much of it about. Dante did a commendable job mapping hell yet I cannot come across any detailed pan-cultural description of heaven. Virgins are a big deal with some, lending a used car salemans promice to a major terrestrial mindset. Catholics didn't know what to do with unbaptised newborn death and so invented 'limbo', a place where innocent children could be aware of God and blissing, but not as blissing as anyone else. Then they disinvented limbo. Sometime 60/s 70/s So my point is, and thank you for persevering, How many dead babies are potentially promised virgins? A map would be useful.
