Don't present this argument to a believer. He would just laugh at you.

Plus, then it's possible to start the whole philosophical debate as to whether or not it's eternal life if part of your mind is essentially killed. A key aspect of consciousness would need to be erased. Why would God make such a pathetic award? He may as well make Hell the reward, and let pain be reinterpreted as pleasure.
