SCIENCE =/= ATHEISM

Why do I have to say this every time we get one of these atheism posts.

You're right, but this is more of a statement that is about bringing opposing ideas together, in a accepting way. There is nothing up there saying Atheism = Science since Atheism is just a lack of belief in a deity.

Not trying to start anything here, just have a legitimate question.

What happens if an infant dies. Does he go to Heaven, or Hell?
He never had a chance to even comprehend the meaning of Religion, so what happens?

Another scenario: there's an extremely Religious man, goes to Church and all that, but he has committed acts of fraud and theft to obtain unearned money, and some other bad things. Versus, a man who isn't the slightest bit Religious, but shares his wealth with those less fortunate, never wronged anyone, never lies, always looked out for others and is 100% genuinely good. Would the non religious man go to hell, and would the religious man go to Heaven?

Just a question, please keep your responses civil.

If I remember correctly from religious studies a couple years back, in Christianity a child is "innocent" until the age of 7. Any time before 7 no matter what they do they will not be judged and get a ticket to heaven.

I have no idea for the infant one, heaven I think.

But for the other one, I think it would be the non relgious one. God can't be mad at them for not believing a big man in the sky created everything (I do, just saying though)

as a fellow Atheist I hate these questions they are easy to answer and cliche questions to ask to provoke thinking. Answer for infant death: Purgatory if Catholic of Heaven if Protestant Baptist say Hell. Scenario 2: The religious man didn't belie what he said he did if he did those things so he goes to hell and the good man does as well. Stupid? yes. But those are the answers you get and if they want to accept that fine.

I was just thinking something about heaven... If heaven is supposed to be pretty much perfect for everyone, what happens if you love someone who hates you and you both go up there. You'll want to be with them but if you are it won't be perfect for them. You could get some kind of exact duplicate heaven clone but in the end anything but the real person wouldn't be perfect for you. Just something i was pondering while i should be doing homework...

I heard that heaven is so completely awesome that you wouldnt even care about anyone from earth. Another scenario like that is what if a father of 3 goes to heaven but his wife and children all go to hell. would he be happy? its hard to think about this but apparantly heaven is just so amazing that you wouldnt worry about them.

There's probably more up there than a chocolate fountain..haha. But i was also taught that the role of a father is to make sure that his family gets into heaven. Unless he tried as hard as he could he shouldnt be in heaven. So maybe this scenario wouldnt take place at all.

Christian here and this is my oponion ok so th question 1. I will let god decide however the child not being able to actually have the opportunity to live and have experiences i feel will get to heaven. Second question 2. The non religious man will get to heaven again i will let god decide but in my view no matter how religious or non religious a person is if they have a good heart and good intention then i think they will get to heaven also the fraud man is a hypocrite...? so yeah... this is my opinion :)

Well, you clearly aren't christian. One of the doctrines of the church is that you believe whatever they say, and if you don't, you aren't christian. The rule is "If you don't believe in God, you won't be saved." Yes, it sucks, no there is nothing you can do about it, that is the faith. No, I can't tell you what your faith is, and I can tell you what it isn't. It isn't christianity if you believe otherwise, seeing as that is the word of the Magisterium.

I am christian.Dictonary definition "of, pertaining to, believing in, or belonging to the religion based on the teachings of Jesus Christ" Jesus taught a gospel of life and rightoueness no matter who the case was. The good samaritan ok was an "enemy" of the jewish people but helped a jewish man whilst "men" of god walked by. Sorry but i am christian and those are my views.

The Holy Roman Catholic Church, also known as the True Church of Jesus Christ. That is the one the pope heads. I see what you are saying, but what I am saying is that people who make denominations are really just saying "I don't like that, so I'll change it." Which goes against a core doctrine of Jesus' teachings, but it is one that no one particularly likes.

I'm not a Biblical scholar, but I would assume the baby would go to Heaven.

Is the religious man truly sorry for his sins? Depends on how bad the other things are. God will judge him for what he's done. If he has accepted Jesus Christ as his savior, he at least has a chance. It would just be up to God to judge him.

Yes I believe the non-religious man would go to Hell.

The Bible gives physical descriptions of Hell, but I take them more figuratively. It's a place where there is no God. We can't even begin to comprehend what it's like, because our senses are all based off our lives as humans, but it doesn't sound fun.

Just my Christian perspective. Some one with more knowledge of the Bible could prove me wrong though.

Depending on the 'God' and if the religion man "repented" his sins. Which I find ****** ridiculous and retarded as ****. The Nonreligious man on the other hand, no answer to that, Id like to believe that he does, If there is a heaven and hell. But Im a believer in Science and ManKind do the right from the wrong. I have yet to do anything bad besides cuss like a sailor in my life and tell petite lies. But Since I do no believe I am instantly condemned to hell. But in the end God loves me!...Religion in my point of view, is a bunch of ******** to keep people to look forward to something when death happens besides black dark nothingness. But people can believe what they wish, I dont care as long as they dont shove it down my throat.

Im Catholic, I go to a Catholic school. The baby will go to heaven because it has never committed a sin. The religious man would not go to heaven unless he went to confession or was truly sorry for his sin. The non-religious man would also go to heaven since he was a good man. Anyone of any religion can go to heaven, because they werent given a chance to accept jesus. If a christian turns away he will go to hell. I hope this helped.

I'm a Hellenic Polytheist, but I went to a christian highschool. I asked these two exact questions, among others, L.

1) It is said in the bible(I can't remember the exact verse) that those who never hear of Christianity go to heaven, because they can not sin if they do not even know what sin is. This would include infants, seeing as they fall in to the category of those who can't sin because they do not know what it is.

2) The religious man would go to heaven provided that he was cleansed of his sins in church, while the non-religious man would go to Hell. Faith is one of the required virtues to enter heaven, if there is no faith, then the good does not matter ,because it is not in the name of the Lord that it is done. I know it is hypocritical, but that is the truth; redemption is seen as a gift, and if a good person rejects that gift, they won't be saved, no matter how nice they are.

Lastly, might I suggest Hellenic Polytheism if you are looking for a faith to follow? It is a much more sensible religion that catholicism/christianity, and holds roots in arguably the first truly great civilization.

At the moment I'm not really focusing on finding a Religion, but understanding it. I was raised Christian, but stopped believing in it. A lot of it seems like blind faith or just faith out of fear, like they don't know why they're following Christ. For example, someone would say "Even if he isn't real, at least I'm covered both ways". That to me seems silly, like their reason for being Christian is just death insurance. So right now I'm just trying to understand our existence from both a Religious and Science/Physics based view so I can come to a conclusion. Hellenic Polytheism sounds interesting though, I'll have to read up on that sometime.

You definitely should. Its religious fables actually tell historical accounts that predict/imply many common day scientific theories such as the big bang and evolution. Besides that, there is more than one god, meaning that you can piss one off doing something, and make another happy by doing it. It is a much more balanced system. Besides that, in Hellenic Polytheism, if you are a good person, then you'll go to a good place regardless of faith. You get treated even better if you are faithful, but without faith is still a pretty amazing way to spend the afterlife.
