Its Heaven a fun carefree place?
Is hell a fiery pit of doom ?

Also if someone who is ultra optimistic and can turn pain into pleasure what would be his punishment ?

Simply put, Heaven is to be with (in the presence of, in union with etc) God; God is Life, Light, Love, Truth, Beauty, Wisdom, Power, Clarity, Peace etc etc..

Hell is simply the ABSENCE of God.. the absence of Life, Light, Love, Truth, Beauty, Wisdom, Power, Clarity, Peace etc etc..
The Cross.. the Cross.

Hell is living forever with no chance of not living even if you get fricken bored out of your mind, have an itch that lasts a billion years that you can not scratch, get tired of the same conversations. I have never understand the fascination with religious people of wanting to live for eternity. Really? Think about that for a minute, or two. Would you really want to always exist, forever?

Death at age __ is not disappointment, unhappiness. It is just nothing. Like when you are asleep at 3am. The warrior who dies in glory at age 30 is no sadder than someone who lives to age 100. Upon death, there is no sadness. (now I am NOT advocating for premature death here!)

Heaven and hell are the same place. If you can stand to listen to contemporary Christian radio nonstop for all eternity, it is heaven. If not, it is hell.

Imagine what it feels like when you're sound asleep. You don't have a thought in the world and your primary consciousness has basically shut down. Now imagine this but forever. That's what you have to look forward to regardless of which religious ideology you subscribe to. So live life for now and don't think too much about rewards or punishments or surviving death.

I was going to say the same thing except replace Christian radio with Boxxy.

"Heaven" and "Hell" are made up places that were conceived by religious leaders in order to make religion palatable to the masses. Without some mechanism to make good behavior grant infinite reward, and bad behavior cause infinite pain, no person would be stupid enough to actually follow a religion.

Of course, these people *were* stupid enough to buy into the whole mystical place idea...
