Default Gilligan's Island: Metaphor for Hell?

I just heard this one on TV Land Myths & Legends. Chow me if you've heard this one: There is a rumor that Gilligan's Island was created as a metaphor for Hell, and that Gilligan, who foils everyone's escape attempts through his bungling, is Satan. On a similar note, other fans believe it was inspired by Rene Decarte's Play, No Exit. Sherwood Schwartz himself appeared on the show to deny it, though: he said the show was a metaphor for international relations and how the nations of the world have to learn to put aside their differences and work together.
