    He was a strong athiest and didn't believe in god or heaven. I"m a secular humanist and agree with most of what he esposed. He didn't go to heaven because it doesn't exist and neither does god, in my opinion. He simply ceased to be.

    My opinion also. You must be a brave man holding those views in the USA.

    Not brave, but it sure is nice to find someone else that thinks for himself because ours is an unpopular but expanding position.

    Just b/c you don't beleive in God, doesn't mean he doesn't exist.

    Do you think he wanted to go anywhere else other from which he came, I think he,ll be wherever he is.

    Very profound ROMOS, perhaps he is in Pandaland.

    Ye Ye.

    that would be up to christ to decide.

    Heaven? If such a place exists, he'd be sitting at the head table. During his final days, he was asked (on more than one occasion) whether he wanted religious well-wishers to pray for him.


    He graciously replied that they were free to do so if THEY believed that prayers would generate a desired response but was sufficiently lucid to know otherwise.


    A brilliant thinker who is no longer.

    Don't  know  yet...............................I havn't   been to heaven yet !!

    Yes. All souls go. 

    He rejected Christ's offer to take the punishment for him,so that he could go to heaven  but he rejected that offer. So, no.      


    Here's what it says on the atheist's grave stone---" Here lies ( name). All dressed up and no place to go ''   :-(
