Yes, since Satan is less powerful than God, it is obvious that Hell is limited in size. What is its carrying capacity? At what point do souls have to time share fire and brimstones? Considering that numbers like 666 were considered big and 144,000 was considered to be near infinite, then Hell must definitely be time-share by now, with billions of souls already there... Consider also that the number of demons and devils is also limited to the original amount of fallen angels. The more souls that go to hell wind up getting tortured less and less over time, unless they wind up merely torturing themselves...

Considering that some on the net think that the EBE's that the Majestic 12 have been consorting with are minions of the devil, you might try to query Lockheed's Area 51/Groom Lake staff. TD is probably a project head there....
