    LOL; I don't think so. There is just so much wrong with that! Just for starters, we atheists generally disbelieve there exists a heaven to 'go to'!
    I suppose you could, in theory, have a proper atheist (I would say a proper atheist excludes any atheists that believe in one of the ancient religions that doesn't insist there must be a god ), i.e. someone who disbelieves there is a god and has no belief in any of the ancient religions, inexplicably and idiotically believe there is some kind of supernatural heaven -but that would be a very strange inconsistency and an extreme rarity!

    What's the point of being a Catholic, then, if there's a road to heaven that doesn't require Latin chants, prayers, nunneries, and dogmatic mumbo-jumbo?

    not a science topic.

    This is not the atheist forum or the spirituality forum it's the science forum.


    EDIT: also, for the record, when Christians talk about heaven... This is what I think of...

    The Saga Of Biorn

    YouTube


    What makes you think that I, or any atheist really, would actually WANT to go to heaven???

    However, while you think about that, take it up to spirituality.

    I also posted this in the spirituality forum.

    Not surprisingly, the point of the post was missed by some. At least sonhouse, wolfgang59, and Soothfast got it.

    I don't have to "think about that". If you think hard enough, you may understand why...or maybe not.
