Also I can't vote via cell phone so put me down for number three.

Yes I have heard this before. But doesn't the whole christian argument fail then? So a person can be an atheist and as long they never heard of Jesus and were a good person they can go to heaven? So why it can't that work for everyone? Why does god unnecessarily burden us with all these complex doctrines if there are loopholes. Atheist in heaven I'm glad I didn't know about Jesus. Atheist in hell dam it! A christian stopped to preach to me just a few hours before I got in a car wreck - now I'm stuck in hell thanks to them!" So are the above scenarios possible then?
Not exactly. The RCC says you have to be baptised, but there are also 3 types of baptism. The first is the traditional baptism typical done with infants. The second is "baptism of desire" where someone earnestly follows "the wrong" religion in literal ignorance of the "correct" one while genuinely desiring to properly follow God's teaching. The third is the "baptism of fire" where a person becomes a martyr fighting for God. So, you see, atheists don't fit in there anywhere. So it's a good thing it's all just nonsense. Tongue

I am not accountable to any God. I am accountable to myself - and not because I think I am God as some theists would try to assert - but because, no matter what actions I take, thoughts I think, or words I utter, I have to be able to live with myself.

Has to be "other." It's the only option that encompasses "it's all a crock."

Has anyone read the bible, heaven cant be much better then hell, less fire, more genital mutilation.
Ill get used to the heat.

Theism is to believe what other people claim, Atheism is to ask "why should I".

Those pearly gates are pretty narrow.

Hell yeah, by far Most of the world's population will fry.

Since hell does not exist, no one is going there. If hell does exist I am not going there because I will remain here on earth where its fucking awesome! I will upload my conscientiousness to the Internet and Ascend into omnipotent, omnipresent state of being.

T.O. is fine - it's the 401 and QEW that are hell on earth. Yes

We're forgetting the billions who have already lived. Even if the maitre d'ciel only started taking bookings after his publicity stunt 2000 years ago, the guest list is probably full by now and all 7 billion of us will have to go to McGodburgers instead.
