    You can`t compare temperature (hell) with lumens (heaven) by using rads.

    It says "the light", not "the heat", so... fail.

    Read your Dante. Hell is cold, with Satan trapped in ice ...

    "The Emperor of the kingdom dolorous / From his mid-breast forth issued from the ice."

    @Jake_Justus
    re-read your Dante.

    Satan isn`t trapped in the ice, the souls there are. Satan is able to move freely, munching on Judas... nom nom.

    Zuriel, Dante`s Satan is not free to move about Hell. He is trapped in the lowest part, bound from the waist in ice -- "From his mid-breast forth issued from the ice." When he flaps his wings, he creates a cold wind that freezes souls in Hell. Read any commentary on it.

    He has three faces, and is chewing on Judas, Brutus and Cassius.

    @Jake, I thought only the last circle of hell (where Satan resides) was frozen. All others were not.

    I`ll admit I only know snippets of Dante`s Inferno.

    DuckBoy, the 9th Circle (where Satan is imprisoned) is the one characterized by frozen souls (and the freezing wind from his wings). The other circles are a mixed bag -- gusty winds, burning sand, etc. But there is icy rain in one.

    Up until I had not realised that Dante was in the bible. Hey-ho! if it was written in an old book, it must be true.

    Yet another person who thinks there`s a book in the Bible called Revelations. Whether you`re a believer or an atheist starting an argument, get your facts straight first.
