Shouldn't you hate your god, then?
If I found myself spending more to hurt my enemies than to treat my friends, I would go get help, it's not normal.

How can a body burn if it can't be destroyed. Do you subscribe to the notion that God is continuously renewing the bodies of the damned?
How would one suffer from pain if extreme heat causes no injury?

This man seems to have a rather... tenuous grasp of geology.

@His4Life: Oh, yeah, I keep forgetting about the immortal bodies shtick.

So where is the heaven, retard?

Well, the Bible teaches that both the saved and unsaved will be raised in immortal bodies. I can't explain the biology or properties of these (since none of us have seen them yet! I'm really looking forward to my glorified body... it will be amazing!). The saved will be resurrected and receive glorified bodies; we get a glimpse of what this will be like in the resurrection of Jesus. He was still himself, but could walk through walls, appear in multiple locations at will, etc. The unsaved will also have eternal bodies, but they will be raised to shame and indignation. These bodies will be able to feel the agony of being burned, sodomized, etc., in hell, but won't die like normal human bodies. This is what Scripture teaches at least.

The Earth os not ho;;pw/ Beneath a thin crust is a rocky, molten mantle, and an iron core. No lake of fire here.

Step 1: A primitive person observes a volcano.
Step 2: The said person makes up some crazy shit trying to explain the phenomenon.
Step 3: Credulous people believe the crazy shit and write it down in a book.
Step 4: The book is then read by generations to pass.
Step 5: Fast forward a couple thousand years, scientists get around to the same phenomenon and come up with a completely different explanation.
Step 6: Likes of James Melton read the primitive biblical explanation, then notice that science has some answers, ignore those answers, and conclude that the buybull is scientific.
Step 7: Praise da Lawd!

Reasonator:! I appreciate your thoughts on the possibilities. However, we *can* dismiss "personal experience" in the realm of science. It cannot be duplicated- even by the individuals expousing the occurrence. Therefore, it cannot be repeated and thus falsified. For that reason, it cannot be peer-reviewed and is thus not science.
There is a reason for the phrase, "the plural of anecdote is not data."

WTF?! hell is not a real place. The whole drilling to hell is a load of shit.
Dyson Spheres are the wave of the future.

That's fine I'm not claiming that it is science...
What's wrong with sharing speculations and hypotheses? That's how people get ideas for things to investigate. Personally I'm broke I don't have the tools or resources to investigate whether astrophysics has implications for long-term social psychology. Plus I have other things to do with my time. But putting the idea out there maybe somebody else will test it.

"THE SPHERE OF HELL"
Nah, I prefer the Spheres
(Hild, the 'Daimakaicho' or Leader of Hell in the manga/anime "Ah! My Goddess").
Eternity between those
spheres? YES PLEASE!
One word: Paizuri

[Revenge fantasy]. This is what Scripture teaches at least. <<
No, it doesn't. To use the TVTropes vocabulary, you are confusing Word Of Dante with Word Of God. For a good discussion of this, I refer you to some of the work of Fred Clark, starting with this piece: http://www.patheos.com/blogs/slacktivist/2011/03/02/team-hell-gets-loud/
Besides, even if the Bible did say that was what happened in the afterlife, all that would mean is that the God of the Bible was not worth worshiping. In that situation, I think the rational response is go to hell and work out a cosmic jailbreak.

To those who say 'science has lost it's imagination': Does the name Arthur C. Clarke ring any bells?
He was the Shakespeare of Sci-Fi. As with Isaac Asimov, Clarke's imagination was boundless. He imagined electronic devices placed in geostationary orbit, to relay radio communications to other parts of the world as far back as 1945; such a notion was published in the letters page of an electronic hobbyists' magazine then, too. When the first telecommunications satellite Telstar was made & sent up in 1962, guess who was recruited as the project's chief technical adviser...?
Much of the internet we use today relies on telecommunications satellites.
The film - based on his earlier writing - "2001: A Space Odyssey" was released in 1968. Just one year before Armstrong's 'One Small Step For Man'. There was the much earlier - as in the infancy of cinema - "A Trip to the Moon"; effectively the first Sci-Fi film in 1902 (just as Mary Shelley's "Frankenstein: Or the Modern Prometheus" was the first Sci-Fi novel; the concept of transplant surgery, biomechanics, nay, cybernetics). Science =/= 'Imagination'...?
The 2005 film "Stealth", with the UCAV, and it's Quantum CPU-based AI 'E.D.I.' Quantum Computers exist today. The 1980s TV series "Knight Rider", with it's remodelled Pontiac Trans-Am 'K.I.T.T.', with it's eponymous AI. There are cars available now, that can automatically stay at a fixed speed, relative to the vehicle in front of it - and at a set distance - even if the driver takes not only his foot off the accelerator, but the steering wheel; and will stop automatically if the vehicle in front of such does so. They can even park themselves.
Moral: The Science Fiction (as in the literary/visual imaginings of it's creators) of the past is the Science Fact of today.

I've thought about it, and I've decided it's stupid.
I can't believe there's someone who literally thinks there's a world in the center of the earth. I thought this was the 21st century, damnit.
