    Is Hell endothermic or exothermic?

    Please include your reasoning as any college professor of philosophy will tell you, it is that reasoning that gives your answer weight.

    First, we need to know how the mass of Hell is changing in time. So we need to know the rate at which souls are moving into Hell and the rate at which they are leaving, which is unlikely.. I think that we can safely assume that once a soul gets to Hell, it will not leave. Therefore, no souls are leaving. As for how many souls are entering Hell, let's look at the different religions that exist in the world today. 

       Most of these religions state that if you are not a member of their religion, you will go to Hell. Since there is more than one of these religions and since people do not belong to more than one religion, we can project that all souls go to Hell. With birth and death rates as they are, we can expect the number of souls in Hell to increase exponentially. Now, we look at the rate of change of the volume in Hell because Boyle's Law states that in order for the temperature and pressure in Hell to stay the same, the volume of Hell has to expand proportionately as souls are added.

    This gives two possibilities:   

       1. If Hell is expanding at a slower rate than the rate at which souls enter Hell, then the temperature and pressure in Hell will increase until all Hell breaks loose.   
       2. If Hell is expanding at a rate faster than the increase of souls in Hell, s0 then the temperature and pressure will drop until Hell freezes over. 
    So which is it?   You tell me!!!

    lol That would be the punch line to a very old joke considering that no man's voice is enough to send anyone to hell per say and there will be many who considered themselves enemies in haven forced to face the fact that it was their actions and intents that make them who they are not the words they profess or the baptism that may or may not be legit. I love the answer though. On the exam on which this question was listed as a bonus question however a conclusion was required to get credit. +1

    I would love to answer your question if I knew what it was you asked. Hold on let me look up the big words in the discretionary.
