Don't be put off by the rather serious-looking subject header; I don't expect this will turn out a very serious thread. Mind you, I'll try my best to not do any ridiculing, and I promise I won't criticize. Not in this thread. This is a peaceful thread.
Alright, so that angel looks like the spirit of Aunt Rhody's goose...never mind that. I wanted a peace smiley but I couldn't find one so...
Now to the subject. I want everyone's ideas, visions, fantasies of what Heaven and Hell would be like. Not just Christians or members of other religions with a Heaven and a Hell...atheists as well. Being an atheist doesn't mean you don't have any imagination. Just make something up.
I don't want any copy-the-Bible's-view sort of posts. I want originality. Your own personal ideas. It can be roughly based on the Bible, but not taken from the Bible.
With Heaven, please state if this is the way you'd like it to be or the way you think it would be - which can be two very different things.
With Hell...have a free hand. It can be a red cave filled with fire and hobgoblins for all I care. I just don't want you to be overly conventional.
I think I've said enough.
Some of my ideas for these two...places...but please be reminded that I am an atheist and don't believe in these whimsical ideas...
Heaven: Let's just say, the way I'd like it to be. I'd like it to be filled with classical music, and I'd want it to have a few good orchestras. I'm not overly particular about clouds under my feet and flying about with white wings...that sort of stuff is a bit too fanciful. I'd prefer a simply spiritual flying through the universe...see the Orion Nebula...Cats Eye...Ghost-head...to name just a few....journey to distant galaxies millions of light years away...by the way that means it takes millions of years for light to get there, so I'd have to be flying pretty fast...maybe I could employ a wormhole...*muses*
Hell: Now this is pretty conventional, I must admit myself, but it's my pet version of Hell. Okay, it's this sort of big interconnected maze of underground caves. There are a lot of devils in it, very friendly guys, with horns on their heads...but I guess you know that...then there's Satan, cleverest of all, but he's rather strict and crafty. Satan changes into a fox. A horned fox? I know. Never mind. But he's got a good heart...just all this time spent distilling naughty spirits makes him a little ill-tempered. Ah, and he distils them in pots. They're invisible, sort of steam. When all the bad is evaporated, they turn from red to white. Then he lets them go, after testing them.
Any other versions appreciated, guys, so hurry up and add some!
