i always thought that hell would be worse if it was freezing than boiling

its talking about brightness.
its definitely notable since hell is supposed to be dark

implying heaven would be in range of our ******* moon and sun. theres a whole ******* galaxy that we live in, and its a tiny part of an even bigger cluster of galaxies, which is part of the universe that goes for who knows how far. we arent the center of the universe so im guessing heaven wouldnt be here in our solar system. Even reading this i look like a retard but i dont have the time to write a novel on why heaven isnt in our solar system.

Read the bible quote. It says they'll receive 50 times the amount of incident radiation from the sun. I'm sure the ancient scholars meant the amount received from the sun in deep space (and of course invented the concept of deep space), rather than the amount on earth, where they were and understood.

If I recall correctly, Dante describes Hell as cold, not hot.

That as it may be, the book of revelations describes it as being between 115.2 C and 444.6 C

I can't claim I knew that, I'm not very religious myself. Thanks for enlightening me.

Well it doesn't specifically say (and I probably know less than you tbh), but for liquid sulphur for the lake, it must be between the melting and boiling point, which are 115.2 and 444.6 respectively.

the bible never really explicitly says that hell is hot.
it does say that at the end of days though, it'll be thrown in a lake of fire.
hell is more a land of the dead, where there is no hope

Yes, but of course to be a liquid lake, it'd have to be above the melting point of sulphur, which is about 115 Celsius.

i think liquid sulphur has a lot more energy than air that's that hot anyways

Yes, but the laws of thermodynamics state that an object which is hotter than its surroundings will probably (but not certainly) dissipate its energy to the surroundings until they reach a thermal equilibrium. In the long run, the only (probabilities of otherwise are seriously tiny) way for a lake of sulphur to stay molten is for it's surroundings to be at a similar temperature.

nothing is known about the size of the lake. it might be infinite for all i know

Aside from that being both physically and mathematically impossible, good point.

why are you using science to try to quantify religion?

Because everything which is real needs to be explainable by science, therefore I try to explain something to see if it follows the rules.

I'm not sure if we'll ever be able to fully comprehend the 'science' which is of God. Dude can literally rewrite physics if he wanted

Ah, so you are religious, I was wondering.
It's not scientific principle to designate a particular area of science (eg 'God science') completely separate and unrelated to anything else in the universe.

Not saying I am religious. Not saying I'm not. But if you go by what people say about various deities, then they could do that. I only chose God as an all encompassing being to simplify matters. All of the known universe if it's to be believed (including our physics, other sciences, etc) are at the mercy of an all powerful being who could just as easily say one day that the water literally turned into blood, or having a localized blackout with only certain people emitting light in their home, or making our blood into gravy. turkey gravy. with mashed potatoes.

Well surely the idea of a god who puts humanity at the centre of the universe just fills the need for people to feel important. If there is a god who could turn our blood to onion soup, then why is it that there aren't more inexplicable occurences like that. The world is far from perfect...
