Truth teller vs liar : go to Hell !

the second soln is definetly more elegent as u need to ask only one guard and the guards need not know each others identity........ it is the soln to the more broader problem

truly (-1)*(-1) = 1 ;)

Why dont you just ask "Am I male?"

Why dont you just ask "Am I male?"

Because you would conclude nothing at all.

...There is no correlation between lying/telling-the-truth and keeping the door to Heaven/Hell.

Wait, the guard to hell always lies, the guard to heaven always tells the truth, so how can there be no correlation between lying/truth telling and keeping door to Hell/Heaven?

You should read the first post.

How about .. "What door are you standing in front of?" The honest guard points to his door, and the liar guard points to the other one.

Ok, now you know who the honest guard is.
And so what?

C'mon guys, you should read the first post.

It confused me, as I've heard it before but proposed differently: truth teller guards Heaven, lier guards Hell.

The no correlation between lying ang telling the truth and which door one is guarding does make a lot more sense now I've thought about it, as there is only one answer:

Will the other guard say he is guarding Heaven?

right?

Isn't this in Labyrinth with David Bowie?

kill both guards then open both doors but don't go in until you find out which door is the one you wish to go in (note some people want to go to hell like satanists)

Would he say that you are lying?
