Where Is Heaven And Hell Located?
April 23, 2009 11:40am CST
Many people especially christians use to emphasise on the heaven and hell issue. I use to immagine where in the world is heaven or hell located. Though the holy bible told that Jesus rose from death and ascended into heaven. But I still see up there as just the sky.If heaven is up the sky, then where is hell located? is it under the soil? What do you think?

They are sure located somewhere, but where is not exactly known but even I could make a couple of scientific guesses beside all the other not so scientific ones: 1-) May be a billion light years away from here there is a huge glowing Giant star a million times larger than the sun. It's surrounded by rims of millions of planets each within the living zone of this massive star. Each of these planets is unique and beautiful with wide fields of grass and flowing rivers of milk and honey and with trees the size of mountains and the mountains even larger. Then there are other planets and asteroid belts present near the star some being fiery hot and full of deep trenches and thorny trees. 2-) May be this universe is just a ball present on the snooker table in Heaven ! The point is they could be anywhere because God created them and he can do what he pleases. It's upto us to either make it to Heaven or Hell.

I could almost by the thought that hell is down... however, down for me is the other side of the world so hell would be in Africa or china if it was simply down. And for those on the other side of the world, I would be in hell since I am "down" from them. The counter is true as well. Up to me is out in space while up for the other side of the world is entirely the opposite direction. Not really sure "where" it is since it is a location ineternity and cannot be confined to time. Perhaps that is why it is confusing.

Up the sky is the way to other planet, not the heaven. Though I don't really believe in heaven, my answer to your question is that the heaven is not in the dimension we are living. The concept of heaven may be just the another dimension, so the transportation from heaven to earth is not possible like the journey to moon. happy mylotting...

This is a very interesting question... One that I've thought about a lot, to be sure. I don't belong to any certain religion but do believe that there is a place that time cannot hinder you. A source of the material that our souls are made of, so to speak. I've heard a lot of interesting theories. One of which was that somewhere in the Northern sky, there is a tunnel formation of stars that might indicate a pathway to somewhere else. Could there be a dimensional vortex that we don't see there? If so, scientifically, nothing physical could pass through such a vortex because it would rip whatever passes through apart. However, if you sent something through such as spiritual matter, which is often believed to be vibrating on a higher frequency than the physical, it might be able to pass through unharmed. Theoretically, spiritual matter would be able to travel past the speed of light. This also brings me to a second theory that I have heard, which is that Heaven could be where we are at now, but existing on a completely different plane of existance all together. This might give off the illusion at times that it would appear to be up if on the plane of existence there was a higher ledge that the spiritual matter was being lifted to. So, Heaven could very well be in the sky, but on higher ground on that plane. As for Hell, well... I prefer to not think about such a place. I do have to agree with some people on this, though. Hell is a term that was added to the Bible and really isn't to be taken as an actual place, but a state of being. It does, after all, mean grave. So, I would think that Hell is simply non existance. Whatever the case may be, I truly believe that there is a place that spirtual matter resides in which we go after we die. Of that, I have no doubt. Since no one has come back that we know of, it's hard to say a whole lot about it. Anyways, I hope you like my answer. :)
