What do you think is Heaven and Hell? Do you think that Heaven is a kingdom in the sky, kind of like it is projected to be in the Bible. Or do you think heaven is the place you were the happiest on earth? or do you have a different ideal on what it is? Same for Hell, do you think it is this fiery place below the earth or do you think that maybe just maybe it is being stuck something or someone you don't like here on earth? Whats your opinion, this is just my thoughts on this. I am not  saying that the Christian Bible is right or wrong, just curious on what you believe. Maybe you don't believe in a Hell, or maybe you believe something different. Just curious.

My mind can drift into the seas of 'open-mindedness', so I have no actual explanation for these two places.
Hell can be what we experience right now, with its unfairness and misery. It can become Purgatory as we continue to press on, Life seemingly becoming better. Paradise would finally be where our lives are at their greatest. If you're life is still miserable, however, you haven't done specific things yet. Losing your ego would be one, sharing would be another, and etc.
  Maybe those two places DO exist, but in different dimensions. Maybe they really are below/above us, although we have surpassed the skies multiple times. We haven't seen any castles made out of shining bricks. The core could be Hell, seeing that it's hellishly hot. (Hahaha no.)

I strongly believe heaven and hell are states of mind; the stories mentioning it being symbolic representations of the state of a being. I can visit the same exact place at any given time, and on one visit it will be a miserable place, and another it will be the most wonderful place. The place remained the same; only my mind was different.

Heaven is the place where God will be when the End comes.  Hell (if it is proper to call it that) is a place or state of being where God is not.  And since God is the giver of life, I would argue that "hell" is nothing more than eternal death.  Beyond this, I cannot really give more detail on heaven and hell - for me as a Christian, knowing that heaven is where God is, that's enough for me to take joy.

Yeah, "the secret things belong to God" as is written.

Pretty self-explanatory, isn't it?

Fictional places that represent ideas, beliefs, and wishful thinking.

Heaven is a place God will take us to at the End, after the destruction of this old world takes place. And it is soon going to happen, we believe it or not. I got a clear understanding of heaven and hell, of God and his arrival from the BKWSU (Brahma Kumaris World Spiritual University).

Heaven and Hell are made up places in my opinion. There's no proof of their actual existence. Describing a place or an emotion or even a person as 'heaven' or 'hell' is about the closest I'd come to saying they exist. If it helps you sleep at night that good people get rewarded and evil people get punished in the end, go for it, just don't let it muddle your common sense.

Being a Pagan, I ascribe more to reincarnation.  Reward and punishment implies a conscious Universe and I am not sure about that.

There could be a heaven and a hell. I think when we die we either go to a happy place.
Or get reborn

The 'Eternal Death' idea of Hell is my Heaven...if god let's me, I'll choose that; non-existentance/eternal oblivion.

Feeling nothing and being unaware of anything is amazing. How do I know? because I've been in a dreamless sleep many times.

Heaven is paradise. It comes from the Persian word for garden.

Hell, well there is more than one hell mentioned in the Bible if this is where you are getting it from, which one did you mean? They might all be written "hell" in English but there are different original words if you look into it. Gehenna, Hades?
