How hot is hell?

I came across a funny story today, supposedly a university professor in thermodynamics gave his class only one question for their final exam. And it was as follows, is hell exotermic (gives off heat) or endotermic (absorbs heat), prove your theory.

The majority of his students referred to Boyles law, where gas cools when it expands and heats up when it is compressed, but one of his students answered as follows.

the students paper.

Firstly you need to know how hells mass changes over time, you need to find out how many souls arrives in hell and how many departs, i make the assumption that if you first arrive in hell you never get out. Therefor no one leaves hell.

When it comes to the question of how many souls that arrives in hell, we have to take a closer look at the different religions of the world. Some religions claim that if you don’t follow their religion you go straight to hell, since there are multiple religions that make this claim, and since people usually only follow one religion at any given time, it is logical to assume that everybody will end up in hell.

With todays number of births and deaths the number of people in hell increases dramatically every day.

Secondly you need to calculate the change in hells volume, Boyles law predicts that for the temperature and the pressure of hell to be maintained at a steady level its volume will need to be increased at the same speed as new arrivals.

This in the end then leaves you with only to possibilities

1. if hell expands with a slower speed than new arrivals the pressure and temperature will increase until all hell breaks loose

2. on the other hand if hell expands faster than new souls arrive the temperature and pressure will decrease until hell freezes over

Which of these two possibilities is the correct one? If we bring into the equation the fundamental principle that has was established by Theresa Banyan during my first year in college where she said (hell will freeze over before I will go to bed with you) and the fact that I still haven’t made any progress with her, we can exclude possibility number 2 and therefor hell is exothermic.

    I actually read this in hungarian a while ago, at high scool. 🙂 Funny as it is, it allso explains why it is unpratical to belong to any religion.

    Even if there was a higer being or beings, you basicly need to gamble away your whole life for a slim hope off picking the right one, and be rewarded with what?

    I would rather go to hell anywhay, as to serve a selfish megalominiac bastard who kills children for the sins of their fathers and commits genocide whenever he gets annoyed with people.

    it follows laws of Chemistry too .Chemistry between the devil and his

    Jeez , so Hell exists and follows laws of Physics [:-)]

    it is i! it is !

  6. Of course it must be a parody it must be !

    think about it .mull over it .he he

    Oh come on. It’s obviously a parody site. No one could seriously go through life being that stupid.

  9. Mathew Philip Mattathu says:

    Well ,he is intolerant too but that does not make you any better haha

  10. My intolerance pales into utter insignificance compared to Jan’s. what a moron LOL

  11. Mathew Philip Mattathu says:

    Intolerance again when he is challenged.Shows how mentally challenged you are EMP .

  12. WOW! what a ding bat ! (Jan schould be locked up and the schould throw away the key)

  13. hoverfrog says:

    EMP, that is an amusing story. If you want something even funnier then you should go and read Jan’s blog. That is hilarious.
