This has to be a very difficult choice to make and is full of contradiction and semantic possibilities.

If you chose freeze, what do you associate with heaven? If you chose burn, what do you associate with hell?

Do you want to go to the light? Or, Do you want to go to the dark?

Is light hot? Is dark cold?

Can you get burned by cold?

Can get cooled off by heat?

Can you be brought back from death by cold? Can you be brought back from death by heat?

Where is this leading you ask? Glad you asked.

This is what I believe.

What happens to our physical body does not equate to where our soul goes. What we think of as temperature only applies to the law of physics as it pertains to our human condition. Burning in Hell is not likely. That is not to say that we do not have consequences for our actions. Some, may even call it the Laws Of Karma. When my soul does ascend, I want to go to the light. You see the contradiction? How can I go to the light and it is Hot? Is it because of the semantics we have to deal with and our association with what we are taught through religion?

However, If you were to ask me which way I would chose to cease this physical world, I would have to say Freeze.

Definitely freeze. I accidentally burn myself with a cigarette and I'm crying. Ouch.

You can get freezer burn? Right? I forgot that. You can not get burning cold. Also, You can be brought back from cold, but burning, you are pretty much toast right? I do not think the freezing of a body means the soul is frozen though. If the body is burning the soul is long gone. In my opinion.

Freezing to death is actually supposed to be a relatively humane way to go. Once you reach a certain point of hypothermia it's pretty quick and, from what I have heard, painless.

Compared to the horror of burning? I'd take freezing and the slow, euphoric fall into sleep.

Dry Ice. It's the atheists Magnet.

science.howstuffworks.com...

Magic... these confounded mysteries.

(ps, I'd take heat. I don't think it'd be much more entirely uncomfortable to die that way, than freezing, having no tolerance for absolute freezing body temperature, I'd suffer more I think..)

Freezing, for the same reasons as Heff. I think I heard the euphoric bit in a movie somewhere. Any idea on that?

Id Freeze to death, id assume it is less painful due to feeling numb while being frozen to death the pain just fades away..

Heard the same with drowning. But I still have to ask.

How do they ask the dead people? Hmm, more mysteries.

-- add

I still don't see how freezing is any less painful. I mean, have any of you actually felt absolutelt frozen to the core? And this is far from death, it's absolutely unbearable. It not only hurts, it makes you convulse.

It hurts just as much as I'd imagine the extremes that burning would inflict before you'd pass out.

lol who knows, both are out of the question, Im hoping to go without noticing at all.

I'd rather freeze, hypothermia numbs you out puts you to sleep.

I would take Freezing.. slowly, sleepy death.


Dry Ice does cause "burns" but its not a burn but freeze, its just a stupid way to call it.

Early church believers actually thought hell was Cold. The devil was painted blue. The thought of hell, as my thought about it, is the absence of the presence of God. So basically without Gods presence it would in fact be cold. I don't associate burning with hell, there could be a lake of fire, but is that really hell or is the fact that God does not see you and you can't feel his love the real definition of hell?

But that is some other idea that could be explored later on..

As to leaving the physical world to either burn or freeze. I guess that would depend on the temperature range. If it is slow in either case, then both would be horrible. Just imagine a temperature that is cold say just 50F, yes you can die from this temperature without the proper protection. Your core temperature would drop, ( you can get hypothermia in 70F water). Your extremities become numb, you get hot flashes, disoriented (sp), and eventually follow the normal progression of hypothermia. It would take some time for you to die. Or say 140F, you would not be burning, but you will still eventually die from this, if you do not have again the proper protection. Dehydration would set in, fluid would probably build in the lungs to protect them from damaging dry air. Hallucinations would start, and eventually you would just fall over from exhaustion and eventually die.

Now say it is cold 0F or colder, you would in fact get hypothermia. You would feel a sensation of overheating, you would strip your clothes off. The next step people that have experienced this they get a feeling of happiness, or pent up energy and will either wander off or start running crazy like. After a while (not sure on the length of time), you in fact would lose all energy and get really sleepy. You would crash and fall asleep. Your heart beat, your breath would slow then eventually stop.

Now let’s look at burning. If the temperature is hot enough to ignite clothes, and most material. You would not die from the damage of the flames, but die from lack of oxygen. It would still be a semi slow death, gasping for air, as the flames scorch your lungs probably would not feel that good. Eventually you would die but still not a fun way to go.

Now if the temperature is insanely extreme instant flash frozen compared to incineration. I don't think you would feel or notice anything it would happen in an instant. In this case i would prefer instant incineration. Cause i don't want to be brought back to life or studied in a museum.

Sorry for the long post, don't know why i did it. but for some reason this topic peak my interest. I don't think all of what i said is 100% true.
I just know some of the hypothermia stuff, fell through the ice and have a mile walk back home in -10F temperature (was about 11 at the time). I started to feel insanely hot and wanted to take my clothes off to cool down. But luckily my buddy was there and kept me calm on our walk back home. My hands and feet went completely numb. My arms and legs hurt, like i was being electrocuted. That was not a pleasant day. When i got home i had to warm up slowly, take the outer layer of clothes off, drank some ice cold water, then a little warmer water, and so forth till i could drink a cup of hot chocolate. Then final got out of my wet clothes, took a warm shower, then put some dry clothes on, and lay under a blanket.

I pick freeze. Because it's easier to give yourself a fighting chance to get warm and survive. I think a numbing stinging pain would be better than a flesh melting agonizing pain. But on the other hand I think you will die more quickly burning to death, so getting it over with faster might be nice.
Personally I associate cold with heaven and hot with hell.
For as long as i can remember I always associated blue with heaven and red with hell as well. The only red items I own are sports things for my Az Cardinals, other than that I stay away from the color red. Just one of my many quirks.

When my soul does ascend, I want to go to the light. You see the contradiction? How can I go to the light and it is Hot? Is it because of the semantics we have to deal with and our association with what we are taught through religion?


Yes. How do you feel about this?

That stumped me. I don't even know where to start. Can you give me a push start on what it means to you. I have been going in circles.

This how I feel. Take care.

thanks for the replies.

I noticed not one of you chose to burn to death. Personally I feel, either way, the soul will depart at the precise moment it needs to. That is why it is so important, to me, for all to maintain a spiritual awareness at all times every day. Regardless of how your physical body ceases to operate. Take care all.

Much love.
