I think the concepts of heaven and hell illustrate clearly how few believers are really genuine. If someone were really utterly convinced that an eternity of pleasure or torture awaited them based on their life here (which is not even the blink of an eye in comparison) they couldn't possibly be so casual about their religion and their actions, they would forever be striving to be a better person in the eyes of their deity, and study their religion with determination. Only fanatics actually do this, and it doesn't seem to make them better people.
