or you could say,
in Dante's "Inferno", what we base hell off of,
the pit of hell is freezing cold, while the higher in hell you go (the closer to heaven) the hotter it gets, because it is closer to god.

you think god can't afford air conditioning for it?

Either way, your retinas would be done in like two seconds.

Assuming heaven has the same thermal capacity/ atmospheric reflection of heat as the earth

I'd ask if that was legit.

'tis true, the catholic church has accepted the theory of evolution, even my parents taught me that humans evolved from apes.

except we didn't, we evolved from a common ancestor

oh you know what I mean.

We didn't evolve from apes. We evolved with them.

Thanks. One would think it was obvious, but I didn't know this.

...pretty much... people within the church knew not to take genesis literally, but they couldn't always say that for certain reasons, but they "officially" accepted it in the 50's i think.

In that verse it talked about light. Not heat. Just saying
#16 to #15 - pineapplepeople (10/28/2012) [-]
Light carries heat energy. I don't know the math behind it, so I don't know how much, but I feel it's safe to say that receiving 50 times the normal amount of light would make Heaven hot as hell. (pun intended)

Maybe Heaven has air conditioning.
#11 - daddycool (10/27/2012) [-]
Or maybe they were literary flourishes to try to bridge the gap of understanding for people.

No, that couldn't happen. No one has ever tried to make two different things sound similar. That's crazy. I'm sorry.

Someone needs to retake physics. Light is different than heat. That sentence mentions the brightness settings...not the heat settings.

They used the Stefan-Boltzmann fourth power law to measure the heat based on the radiation from a star. If Heaven is receiving the same type of radiation (from the same star) as earth is, it's safe to use this calculation.
However, the biblical terminology references light rather than heat. Okay, so somehow Heaven is receiving the same type of radiation, but only taking the light from it and filtering out most of the heat (letting some through to avoid freezing temperature obviously).
Would it not have been useful to install this same heavenly radiation filter into earth's atmosphere?
Or is it much more likely that the ancient guys writing the bible had next to no understanding of physics beyond simple mechanical aspects?
User avatar #44 to #40 - slippythetoad (10/28/2012) [-]
There are different kinds of radiation to consider, just like there is more to gravitation. How ancient people got a hold of this knowledge, i do not know, but there is more to what meets the eye.
User avatar #48 to #44 - SilentRaver (10/28/2012) [-]
It's from the same star though. If Heaven has ways to filter out certain radiation, drought inducing or carcinogenic, then I can't think of a good reason to leave the earth unfiltered.
User avatar #49 to #48 - slippythetoad (10/28/2012) [-]
indeed so
#9 - mastermd (10/27/2012) [-]
But what you're failing to consider in your calculations for heaven is that it might not be the same size as Earth. If it were larger than Earth the same amount of energy wouldn't heat it up as much.
User avatar #30 - taokami ONLINE (10/28/2012) [-]
but you wouldn't have a physical body when get to heaven, you would be an energy being just like the ancients from SG-1.

Maybe it's a dry heat?

A bonfire's a dry heat

Light = Energy = Heat
Super simple stuff.

You know, the Bible is completely allegorical, right?

Most Christians don't believe that Hell is actually fire, just the absence of God, which is the most awful suffering a person to face. It's hard to explain that, especially with the little to no education that most people got during the time it was written, which is why it was presented as a story. Most of the stuff in the Bible was probably based on historical and (relative to the beginning of the Common Era) current events that were turned into a story that people would understand easily.

Also light =/= heat.

Heat is light, just not in the visible spectrum.

The sun is the thing that gives off heat, not the light.
The only reason a car gets hotter on the inside is after the heat is gets inside, it is insulated by the car.

Your car doesn't get 100 degrees hotter in the winter just because the sun is shining on it, does it?

Has moonlight ever heated you up?

No, because light doesn't create heat.

Sorry if I came off as rude, I'm not trying to be, but the light still isn't the thing that's heating up the car, it's the heat from the sun.
User avatar #64 to #32 - jokeface (10/28/2012) [-]
The Bible isn't completely allegorical. A lot of it is to be taken literally. But your right about hell being the absence of God. I thumbed you up for that.

>Using logic in the bible

You expected it to make sense?

except if your going by christian hell then the lake of fire and hell are separate things because hell and death will be thrown into the lake of fire
