I figured, you burn all day long in hell, but what is the perception of heaven?
Do you get to hang out with god and smell the roses all day long, what do you expect to see/do when you get there?

There are books out there written by people who say they experienced Heaven and Hell. Look for them! You can probably browse some at your local Barnes & Noble.

The activities that I would want to engage in that I would consider to be heaven would certainly cause my deportation to hell.

Well, if I was in Heaven, I'd be going to Hell for sinning so much. I'd have countless concubines, I'd party like there was no tomorrow and I'd have everything I'd ever wanted. If that's not greed, lust, and gluttony all rolled into one, I'm not sure what is. So if I can't do that on Earth, how come I'm allowed to in Heaven?

Also, how could someone experience everlasting joy in Heaven while knowing some of their loved ones were eternally suffering in Hell?

The Heaven/Hell concept is so basic and insulting to one's intelligence as to only merit a chuckle.

There are Hell books there too. They'd scare you to avoid that place and become a strict Christian though.

There are also some good books explaining how the doctrine of hell and eternal damnation even came to be in the bible. These books will scare you too, since they show the gullibility of christians and how dangerous that can be for the rest of sane people.
