Question for the Day

How hot is Hell? 

To determine the hotness of Hell we must establish whether Hell is exothermic (gives off heat) or endothermic (absorbs heat)?

First, we need to know how the mass of Hell is changing in time. To do so we need to know the rate at which souls are moving into Hell. I think that we can safely assume that once a soul gets to Hell, it will not leave. Therefore, no souls are leaving.

Second, we need to know how many souls are entering Hell. To determine that let’s look at the different religions that exist in the world today. Most of these religions state that if you are not a member of their religion you will go to Hell. Since there is more than one of these religions and since people do not belong to more than one religion, we can project that all souls go to Hell.

With birth and death rates as they are, we can expect the number of souls in Hell to increase exponentially. Now, we look at the rate of change of the volume in Hell because Boyle’s Law states that in order for the temperature and pressure in Hell to stay the same, the volume of Hell has to expand proportionately as souls are added.

This gives two possibilities:

1. If Hell is expanding at a slower rate than the rate at which souls enter Hell, then the temperature and pressure in Hell will increase until all Hell breaks loose.

2. If Hell is expanding at a rate faster than the increase of souls in Hell, then the temperature and pressure will drop until Hell freezes over.

So which is it?

If we accept the postulate given to me by Granny a few years ago that, “it will be a cold day in Hell before you quit snoring and I can sleep with you again” and take into account the fact that we slept together last night, then number 2 must be true, and thus I am sure that Hell is exothermic and has already frozen over.

The corollary of this theory is that since Hell has frozen over it follows that it is not accepting any more souls and is therefore extinct leaving only Heaven. Thereby proving the existence of a Divine Being which explains why last night Granny kept shouting “Oh my God.”

The above was reported to be the answer to an actual question given on a University of Washington chemistry mid-term exam (edited to protect the guilty). The answer was considered so profound that the professor shared it with colleagues, via the Internet, which is, of course, why we now have the pleasure of enjoying it as well. It is claimed the student received the only “A.”

  1. Good Morning Clyde and all……..Snow here on my little corner of the world..Not much, just enough to make the crazy driver’s more dangerious than usual.

    Interesting post..Before I can answer the question of how hot or cold hell is I would have to travel “to hell and back”, I think…..My opinion is much diffrent than most, considering I am a witch and as such do not believe there is a hell at all, hot or cold…

    Witch’s believe in a Summerland, much like a christian does a Heaven…May I say I believe we all go there, yes, everyone…..Even gw would be there. I believe our soul’s reincarnate as we choose to learn and elevate to a certain point…This is a simplification of my belief’s…..A true witch or I atleast embrace all faith’s, rather I believe in them or not and stand with all soul’s to express their belief’s….It is much easier for me to think all road’s lead to the same destination…….Blessings all

  2. Wayne and all, isn’t that funny….I missed it all to gether……Not enough coffee….Even in print I didn’t pick up on it, went right to the spiritual….LOL..Blessings

  3. :-D :-D :-D :-D

    I’ve read that story somewhere, but I had since forgotten about it, thanks for making me laugh. Witch1, after Clyde’s last post I I’ll try out to be a pig in my next incarnation. ;-)

  4. Zooey/Wayne,

    Sometimes a euphemism can be a literalism and not imply what you infer. On the other hand, two out of three while playing MFK with one person can’t be too bad. But if Granny ever sees this she will make it three for three.

  5. EV, ….LOL….Maybe we have been the “pig” already and are moving on to bigger thing’s…Damn, hope that doesn’t mean we will end up elephant’s…..Blessings

  6. If I have been a pig already, damn, damn, damn, I can’t remember. Elephant sounds plausible, however, given the fact that I am moving there, weightwise, that is.

    I am so very glad you feel better.

  7. Perhap’s that’s the answer..Each time we are destend to come back we pick a lesson and the soul’s that will walk with us to experience that lesson, then when we get here we forget what we have done in the past lives, and that we have picked a lesson at all, well some do, and move forward in our learning. …..Just some of my thought’s…..I must be better, able to ramble o again….Blessings

  8. Great to hear you’re better, witch. What you speak of sounds similar to “The Celestine Prophecy”. I found that an interesting viewpoint on the world and existenced, and I guess I hope at least part of it is true. (I like the idea of being able to reach a higher state of energy and move about anywhere you please.)

  9. EV/Wonderful Witch,

    I would advise against opting to be an elephant. The current bushco is emulating elephants breeding: It is done at a very high level; it is accomplished amidst a great deal of stomping and trumpeting; and it takes two years to get any results. Anyway, the pig has it beat by at least 25 minutes.

  10. Clyde,…….LOL.Yah! I know all about gestation and reproduction stuff..Very funny, I think a pig take’s around 3 month’s but here’s the funny about them, their little wikies are like cork screw’s…..Did you all know it take’s 340 or so day’s for a mare unless she is expecting a mule and in that case it take’s a year or more…Just some Sunday trivia BS….Blessings

  11. Still a little slow, sorry, back at ya Lady Z and Thank’s……Had not read that prophecy Wayne, will have to look it up when I’m done with my present project’s…..Blessings
