Hell?! Oh. Hello

Hell?! Oh. Hello
Does language determine thought to a large extent, and is terror and awe of the Christian Hell ™ built into the English language at the very level of fundamental and standardised civil greeting? Hell?!?!?!?! Ooooooooooh. Hello?

RE: Hell?! Oh. Hello
The origin of the word hello is even cooler - it's an americansim....but the foreboding nature of word hell isn't a christian invention at all. Anglo saxon pagans came up with that one.
I am the Infantry. I am my country’s strength in war, her deterrent in peace. I am the heart of the fight… wherever, whenever. I carry America’s faith and honor against her enemies. I am the Queen of Battle. I am what my country expects me to be, the best trained Soldier in the world. In the race for victory, I am swift, determined, and courageous, armed with a fierce will to win. Never will I fail my country’s trust. Always I fight on…through the foe, to the objective, to triumph overall. If necessary, I will fight to my death. By my steadfast courage, I have won more than 200 years of freedom. I yield not to weakness, to hunger, to cowardice, to fatigue, to superior odds, For I am mentally tough, physically strong, and morally straight. I forsake not, my country, my mission, my comrades, my sacred duty. I am relentless. I am always there, now and forever. I AM THE INFANTRY! FOLLOW ME!

One of the few people on earth I'd click a facebook link for. I like the first one - "everyone else's theology was slightly off". Yep, that's how things pan out, if the christians are to be believed.

What about Good bye?
Is that suppose to be God by or by god?

I know that in french, they say "adieu" which is "a dieu" which mean "to god" but they use it to say good by.
It looks like french and english use an almost similar term in this case.

Other cultures say "may god be with you". I think all these cultures have copied each other.
