comment How can Heaven exist if we know that people in Hell will suffer?
@PeterTurner I don't claim to know very much about happiness. I do think that I can safely say that my mother would be less happy with the knowledge that her son is currently being tortured, and will be tortured for the rest of time, then if she had the knowledge that I was in Heaven.

@PeterTurner It may be true that my mother would be hopeful of a deathbed conversion. This conversion may, of course, not happen. My Christian friends would up to Heaven and meet my mother. When questioned, they would tell my Mother that I had died years earlier an atheist [or sinner]. Surely then my mother would not be able to experience definitive happiness, with the knowledge that her beloved son is certainly being torture, and will be for eternity.
