    Definitional morass, indeed. If that's your definition of "denying
    childhood", then that's one morass I'll gladly avoid.

    Heaven is a metaphor. What it stands for is the ideal state of mind,
    in *this* life. And that's a mind entirely undominated by memes.
    Which, in turn, is a mind with no beliefs, even belief in atheism.
    Those who believe in atheism, like those who believe in anything else,
    are eternally excluded. All crutches turn eventually into anchors.
    Letting go is the only universal solution.
