Well,all religions speak about the hell and the heaven.But as like differing religious faiths,same with the beliefs in this.So what do you expect from your heaven and hell.I am a Hindu and our religion says there will be demons in the hell,ready to deep fry you in boiling oil,whip you for your mistakes,beat you with thorn rods,etc...And the heaven is full of beautiful girls and they would be dancing and you can see gods.Simply to say,the heaven is filled with joy and hell with sorrow.So,what about yours?

In my Chriztian faith, Heaven iz a place prepared for righteouz people to live in zumday with God Almighty where there will be No more nightz, No more pain, zorrow, and no more crying. Hell iz where the wicked will be judged accordingly. But az far az my mind, bocy or heart iz concerned... Heaven iz anywhere in the world with my zpecial zomeone. And Hell iz anywhere in the world when I have diarrhea. ^_^

rexrovel!You made me laugh when you are speaking about how you feel hell whenever you have diarrhea. I saw one another post where another member is speaking from Christianity that the hell is always empty as the lord is so kind to forgive all the sinners.I can't accept it.What you have told should be right.there should be a place for sinners to suffer.then only they will learn the truth. By the way,why you choose 'Z' for 'S'?

I am from the christian faith. There are not that much of a difference. Of course you will burn in hell, but the bad part of thst is, it will be for eternity. If you are lucky enough to go to heaven, you will have peace, love and joy, forget the girls, and that will be for eternity as well. Sounds much better than the first, but unfortunately it will not be our decision to make.

It is only burning and burning at all,isn't it?Then will not hell become used to this burning.We humans can adjust to the environment and adapt to the circumstances.So,will not we learn to live with that burning itself?I think there should be variety of punishments.

I don,t think we will ever be able to adapt to that kind of heat. I think our biggest punishment will be, that we won,t be able to go to heaven.

saphrina!that is well said!The biggest punishment is we can't go to heaven.......I appreciate this line of thinking.yes!that can be the worst we should think of.Other punishments may not be hard or soft.Just the closed gate for heaven should leave the heavy impact.

actually, the afterlife in my religion doesn't have a heaven and hell scenario. more that each takes responsibility for their actions and rests and prepares for the next incarnation

Galena!It would be nice,if you have stated what your religion is.Your views closely resembles our religion's thoughts.It is said that people have to suffer or enjoy in hell and heaven respectively until their time to reincarnate.Only the people who have surpassed all the good and bad can escape from hell and heaven and they have no rebirth.

it's hard to say what my religion is. because I'm Pagan. and not every Pagan believes the same thing.

My heaven is eating chocolate, my hell would be to be told that I could never eat chocolate again for health reasons for example!

.Sallyso!You are concerned about eating chocolates and without it,life will be hell for you.Well,then we all have our own heavens with certain conditions without which we feel hell here itself.And I conceive from your statement that heaven is a place where all your likes are sanctioned and hell is where what you don't expect the least.

hi! Heaven and hell- the two opposites in peoples life. My heaven, as to many other people is my family- they support and help me when I need something, they help me in my life with everything they can. They love me and show it to me every minute and I am very happy with them, and they are really my heaven on Earth. My hell are my weaknesses- like that i am very nervous and get angry very easily. My hell are also my enemies, who I try to avoid , because I don't want any qaurrel with them!

phoenix!I think you missed my post.I am not asking about what is your heaven and hell.Rather what is in your hell and heaven as per your religious faith.No problem,what you have answered is right in a sense.We can feel heaven or hell,here itself according to the values we give to our relationships.

I haven't seriously thought about heaven and hell. I think that I am too young to think about that. I think heaven is a place where everybody wears white clothes, they sing and dance, praise the god, and be happy all the time. Hell is a place where there will be people who punish you by picking out your nails, putting you in frying oil, forcing you to do a lot of work, etc. Once you get into heaven or hell, there is no escape from there.

Speaking about white clothed,I understand you are mentioning the angels.And the hell you relate closely resembles what i am speaking of.I think you belong to Christianity and I expect something different from your religious point of view.Okay,let us wait for some other people to make this discussion an interesting one.

~Hi! WEll in my haven I have all the good things that have ever happened to me and all the people i love- my family and all my other relatives, my girlfriend, my friends, my pets- all the things, that make me feel happy. And in my hell are all these things, which make me suffer and unhappy like the mistakes i have done in m life or some bad moments- all the bad things! ~

Oh!You see hell and heaven here in this earth itself.yes!Life can be heaven if all good things can happen with all our friends and relations and if we can stop from making mistakes or sins.You are right.We are the creators of whatever it may be,hell or heaven and nothing external can decide on us.

There is no science to confirm or deny the existence of either.We have no facts of there being heaven or hell. Heaven and hell are just beliefs, others think its just a dream. We can explain about the earth we are living,but about heaven there is only an imaginary concept.I think earth itself is a heaven,if there is no poverty,war,natural calamities etc.

sreenivas!I understand from your name that you belong to my own religion and i too have the same thoughts like you.But I started this post to learn what other religions have as a concept for their heaven and hell.it would be quite interesting to learn new things.Just follow on to hear something different.

I'm Jewish and I have had it described like this. The righteous get to be closer to G-d than the wicked.So it is the absence of G-d that makes it hell.No fire and brimstone, just the feeling of the absence of G-d.Isn't it true that there is no better hurt than living without being with the one you love?
