The temporariness and impermanence of the experience is what gives it meaning. If it's just one more memory in an infinite sea of memories acquired over all of eternity it don't mean much. Hell is eternal anything, it's eternal being, eternal existence. Your heaven is very much my idea of hell.

Yup, pretty much nails it.

Premise: X is a horse
Conclusion: from premise 1 and 2 follows that X is brown
However, suppose that X in fact isn't brown, but white (meaning that either X isn't a horse - premise 2 is false -, or not all horses are brown - premise 1 is false).

The reasoning leading to the conclusion is logically valid, it's a valid reasoning, but the conclusion is not true, because we started with false premises.

He worked on theory of graphs, and simple numbers (I am not sure if this is how it calls in English). So I asked him once when I was about 12 years old. How do you know in relatively short period of time how to write the program for a process that you never knew about before? He told me this: "I am asking right questions. It is very important to ask right questions."
I don't know why this words impressed me a lot. I could never forget those words. I never asked him though how he knew what questions were right

The thing is, you don't need to indoctrinate someone to produce an atheist. You just don't indoctrinate them not to be one.

Yep. Shy
