critical examination of the Christian concept of heaven:

Heaven is not configured as a nice place to live. It is rather memetically optimized to be a nice place for an exhausted peasant to imagine. It's not like some Christians actually got a chance to live in various Heavens, and voted on how well they liked it after a year, and then they kept the best one. The Paradise that survived was the one that was retold, not lived.
