A Short Argument Against Annihilationism from the Death of Infants

1. Infants who die aren't annihilated. (premise)
2. Thus, probably no one who dies is annihilated. (induction)

Of course there may be other reasons that raise the probability for annihilation of some over infants (who have no faith); but if annihilation can be good for someone and an act of justice, love, and mercy, and infants have done nothing to merit an eternal reward and they lack faith, one wonders why there is so much confidence that 1 is true.
