    And what if you don't believe in God or Heaven or Hell or The Tooth Fairy or the Easter Bunny or Unicorns or Gnomes? I tend to fall under this category.

    Damn, this pope's really interesting. He must really be frosting a lot of asses in Rome. Just hope he's not a war criminal.

    That's only fair. I've always said Catholics face eternal oblivion just like everyone else.

    I've always believed this. An athiest who helps out their entire life and isn't a dick doesn't get into heaven but a serial killer who repents on death row and "finds god" does? Fugdat.

    There have been theological arguments within catholicism - as well as Christianity in general - that the way to Heaven is though good deeds, rather than through correct faith or adherence to ritual praxis.

    You have to remember, that in Christianity, when a person dies, they are confronted with God (thus proving his existence). Then God will judge you. So in this line of reasoning, God judges primarely upon your good deeds, rather than on your faith/ritual praxis.

    Of course, this line of reasoning tends to not be the dominant one.

    EDIT: Not saying it's this line that the Pope necessarily adheers to.

    How can you not believe in God and go to Heaven? That is retarded, imo.

    No. Good deeds are a dung heap. Only faith in Christ's sacrifice on the cross can get you to heaven.

    Meh everyone is an atheist to a certain degree, even the most hardcore Christians. For instance, they maybe a believer of the Judeo-Christian god, but they are certainly atheists when it comes to Zeus, Odin, Thor, Krishna, Poseidon, Hades and the Chinese Monkey King.
