@Wow If they lived by every moral of the bible, that would include believing Jesus died on the cross for your sins, and that would mean you go to heaven. Nwo, I don't think you mean that part, so I would have to say they go to hell because the did not accept Jesus into there heart. I know atheist in real life who are like that, but they don`t believe in Jesus, and according to the bible they would not go to heaven.
It says in the bible that you can not repeat a sin over and over knowing it is wrong and ask for forgiveness every time, because that is abusing the love of Jesus and God. If I sat in a garage every day it doesn`t mean I am going to be a car, just how if I go to church every day doesn`t mean I will be a christian. You have to live like one.

One can learn a lot about a person by what their enemies call them: atheists are often times called smug elitists. I rather like that title... smug because we base our conclusions on principles of statistics and logic, and elitists because we are educated. The pope calls atheism "rationalism." Thank you, Joe! I rather like being told I'm rational.

I love the argument Colors brought up, so I want to ask two simple questions to that. If there was one person who didn't believe in a God, gave time to the community, treated others with respect and dignity, and lived by every moral thread written in the bible without knowing it just because it was the right thing to do... if there was a God where would they go when they die?
Meanwhile if there was a person who went to church every Christmas and Easter, ignored everything in the bible except when it suited them, screamed intolerance and hatred of others all their life, and yet professes a belief in a God simply for a shiny reward at the end... if there was a God where would they go when they die?

I'm not saying every Christian doesn`t and I`m not saying every Atheist does, but to think you are better than someone because you do/don`t believe in something is just wrong.
