2000 year old riddle (no cheating)...

Don't look this one up...have a go and see what you come up with:)

There are two doors, one leads to eternal life and the other leads to oblivion. There are two guards outside the doors, one for each door. You have to choose one of the doors. You are only allowed to ask the guards one question. The problem is one guard will always lie and the other will always tell the truth. What is the question you ask?

What door would the other guard point me to if I ask where is the door that leads to eternal life?

The guard that's saying the truth will point towards the incorrect door (must always say the truth and the liar is going to point towards the incorrect door) and the liar will point towards the incorrect door as well (will always lie; the other guard must say the truth). You pick the door neither one pointed towards.

Did I get it right? Took me a little longer than I'd like to admit.

Spot on. It took me a while also...a bit of a mind thrust:)
