Assuming that the realm of damnation follows the fundamental laws of thermodynamics.

And that all the religions are right, making everyone go to hell. Maybe they are all wrong, nobody goes there, it is endothermic, will freeze over and that poor kid can get laid.

Quite clever he managed to get an A for something that isn't that profound.

A bit on the silly side really,

I doubt it's true.

Personally if I was the professor I would have said..."Pwnt." and given him an F.

If I was the proffessor who issued the question, I would be a pretty stupid guy.

Honestly I don't think much of the answer, becase the question isn't philosophical enough to be worth my while [/arrogant mode]

I would point out that it should be taken into consideration whether the souls entering Hell have mass to begin with - if they are immaterial (have no mass) then there is no change in the mass of Hell caused by their arrival.

I think sometime in 18th century some scholar tried to find out the mass of a human soul by weighing a human body just before and just after the death, presuming that the difference in the two would have been the mass of the soul.

Or the air in the lungs, or the gas in the bowel..... etc.

it's amazing how we can look back on things like that now and think, what were they thinking, I wonder, if in 200 years, our ancestors will be doing the same.

No need to wait 200 years, I already frequently wonder what other people are thinking these days.

Anyway, that was a pretty clever answer, keeping in mind that the student had to improvise it right then and there during the test.

I am quite convinced that some people are not thinking anything at all. :cool:

I've heard that before, but the ending suggested that he did have his way with said young woman.

Well England's just won the ashes. It looks like hell has actually frozen over. :)

What may I ask, do GW and warseer have to do with pretentious philosophies?

I was just pointing out, it wasn't that inspiring a question, nor such a deep answer, as clearly the proffessor had intended, instead he got a rather funny retort, but little to do with philosophy.

I was being sarcy, nothing more.
