The last laugh may yet be ours. If there really is an all-wise god out there somewhere and an afterlife exists, chances are those who have used the brain given them and have been true to themselves notwithstanding a vaunted infernal punishment for failing to be obsequious will end up taking the elevator to the next level of existence while those who played safe and abided by the carrot and stick policy will be reincarnated and given another chance to learn, a reincarnation ad infinitum should they keep failing to make the grade. Would that be hell? Not if you don't remember anything from your past life.
Religion is a trap for young players.
