    I looked up the meaning of brimstone. It is an old name for sulfur. If you believe in hell, do you believe it smells of sulfur (that would be hell indeed)?

    It wouldn't except the smell of burning sulfur is highly evocative.

    I kind of like sulfur...

    But no, Hel will smell like...well...coldness. (I have a VERY poor sense of smell. Sulfur is one of the few things I can smell)

    Hell Is Only A State Of One Mind It Doesn't Exist In The Real World .
    Once The Body Is Dead ( It's Has NO FEELING ) , The Soul Does Not Burn , The Spirit Does Not Burn , So What's The Point Of Your Make Believe Hell ?

    It's A Habit . I Don't Really Think It's About Me Capitalizing Everyword . It About The Message They Can't Deal With , Because If I Were To Post What People Wanted / To Read / Accept / Believe , Capitalizing Every Word Would Never Come Up , It's Call Nick-Picking . Not Saying That's What Your Doing Not .

    I'm not sure if you're familiar with the others, but you might wish to note that the person who started the thread did not state that he believes in hell. I would venture to say that the majority of our members don't believe in a literal hell, so I imagine you're dealing with simple curiosity, not nit-picking.

    When one of my great personal heroes of religion, Nightcrawler, teleports, the place supposedly smells of sulfur. I, therefore, vote 'no', because he's about the furthest thing from a devillish being that I could think of.

    With All Do Respect Wasn't Even Nit-Picking Just Adding My Two Cents Like Everyone Else , Plus I Don't Go Around LQQking For Small Mistake Because I Don't Agree With People , Not Saysing The Sister Was Nit-Pick ing Which I Don't Think She Was , But Its A Few Here Who Are Nit-Picking Just To Side Step What The Post Was Speaking About . But Hey It NoBigThing Its To Be Expected .

    Hell is not a place, so no. You are right about the sulphur smell, though. Try spending any amount of time at the campsite by Myvatn in Iceland - the hot water that comes out of the taps absolutely reeks.

    >Does hell smell of sulphur?

    No.

    Hell is the spiritual condition of separation from God, not a physical place.

    Peace,
