A semi-serious discussion on the way terminology illicits fear in people...
The fact that anyone believes in either. The hold of ancient superstitions is what is scary.

The whole cosmos is basically one big ball of fire. We're all going to be burned up. Whatever can't be shaken will remain.

Very true, Heartsong. The Hubble has shown us that our reality is comprised of billions of "pools of fire" (galaxies) that are collections of billions of suns (Fires) held in place by unmeasurable dark matter (non-baryonic). The cosmos is expanding and the expansion is accelerating because of unmeasurable dark energy (non-baryonic). One needs to ask why there are two forms of unmeasurable "stuff" that comprise the bulk (95+%) of our reality . . . and why one kind is continually being consumed by the fires of suns and the other is expanding (growing) the size of our reality. Things to think about.

Oh, but the sea can wait....


Take gentle care.
This is what scared me that June was running her wood burning stove in July and then I rechecked the post to see it was October(2010) and not many posts on this thread, I was thinking June loved her heat a little bit too much.

It does not appear they are mocking God, Finn and ILNC . . . but they may be legitimately mocking the eternal hell-fire belief.
