Doesn't your first thought conflict with your second? All the serious though you give to heaven and hell won't have any effect on whether they exist or don't. And since there is no good evidence for one religious belief versus another (they are matters of faith) superficial consideration doesn't seem to be a problem. It gets back to the Pascal's wager dilemma - how can one be sure he is betting on the right God out of the many available?
