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.

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

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.

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?

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.

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.

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.

In that verse it talked about light. Not heat. Just saying

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)
