Ok, so heaven is meant to be a perfect place where "there will be no sickness, no death and no tears (wikipedia)." However, not everyone will get into heaven, if it were to exist people that made it there would have friends and loved ones that didn't; presumably stuck in hell for all eternity.
Thus if heaven is a perfect place where there are no tears it must mean that once people make it to heaven they lose all knowledge of their previous lives, as it can't be a place of eternal happiness if you know that some of those that were closest to you are suffering. This essentially makes our lives meaningless as all our relationships amount to nothing except in so far as we behaved well enough to get our ticket to heaven.
This leaves the possibilities to be that heaven doesn't exist, or if it does, it's not all it's cracked up to be or that life is meaningless. Which is it?
