Hot as Hell

Andrew Sullivan

You’ve heard the saying but how hot is hell? Well…apparently it is cooler than heaven…hmmm…this is going to tax the literalists:

Isaiah 30:26 reads, Moreover the light of the Moon shall be as the light of the Sun and the light of the Sun shall be sevenfold, as the light of seven days. Thus Heaven receives from the Moon as much radiation as the Earth does from the Sun and in addition seven times seven (forty-nine) times as much as the Earth does from the Sun, or fifty times in all. …  The exact temperature of Hell cannot be computed but it must be less than 444.6°C, the temperature at which brimstone or sulfur changes from a liquid to a gas. Revelations 21:8: But the fearful and unbelieving … shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone. A lake of molten brimstone means that its temperature must be below the boiling point, which is 444.6°C. (Above that point it would be a vapor, not a lake.)

We have then, temperature of Heaven, 525°C. Temperature of Hell, less than 445°C. Therefore, Heaven is hotter than Hell.

    A wee problem with your analysis Whale. The verse never mentions heaven at all. 

    Also what about the scripture in Revelation 21:24 which talks about heaven:

    And the city had no need of the sun, neither of the moon, to shine in it: for the glory of God did lighten it, and the Lamb is the light thereof.

    You may have failed to consider the depth of hell, the increase of atmospheric pressure due to that depth, and the increase in he boiling point of the sulphur due to that pressure..

    Just a thought
