it has always make me wonder how god judge someone when the person died. does he judge upon his believe in him or the fact that whether he was a good man in his living life. let take an example, a man grew up in a family that believe in big bang, theory of creation. nobody ever speaks to him about god. he only believe in science. but he was a great man, he helps people in whatever way he could, he donates to charity.he is not a believer of god. he is also a sinner just like all of us. when he die, does he deserve to enter heaven? come and share your opinions.

If you didn't know about God then he tests you on Judgement Day and decides your fate. If you did know about him, no matter how good of a man you are, if you disbelieve in him then it's hell for you. See ya there. This is according to the doctrines, but of course neither God or Heaven exist.

how about those that never had a chance to know god? ever heard of cases whereby a few months old baby was killed? how about them? is it just fair to sent them to hell, when all they did was being at the wrong place at the wrong time?

Did you read my answer? I said those who don't know about God are tested on the Day of Judgment and then their fate is determined.

Without doubt God and exists and without doubt so does heaven and hell. If you do not believe in god and do not accept what he wants you to do and you die in this state, how can you expect to enter into heaven??!. God has given you countless warnings about the day when every mother will forget about her load, when mothers and daughters fathers and sons will run away from each other. God doesn't want anyone to go to hell but the people in this earth do acts and deeds that will take them to hell. Many people believe that there is only this world and nothing else. If people would ponder on their own creation, this would be enough for them to have faith. We were all created form sperm, a filthy fluid released from males and this, in nine months, turns into a human!! Think about it!! From sperm to a fully functioning human being. And atheists believe that this all happenend spontanously. At the end of the day i will go to my grave and you will go to your grave. I can only relay to you the truth. And I'd like to leave you with another warning from god. Please heed it. Qur'an Chapter 89 Verses 21-26 21. Nay! When the earth is pounded to powder 22. And thy Lord cometh, and His angels, rank upon rank 23. And Hell, that Day, is brought (face to face),-on that Day man will remember, but how will that remembrance profit him? 24. He will say: "Ah! Would that I had sent forth (good deeds) for (this) my (future) life!" 25. For, that Day, His Chastisement will such as none (else) can inflict. 26. And His bonds will be such as none (other) can bind.

you don't have to believe in god to enter his gate.. believing means you are doubting.. when you say you believe in God, you are doubting that their is God.. If for example, you told your friend that you believe she is a girl.. it means your are doubting if he is girl or not..(when it facts she is really a girl)..God still accepts a person even though he has done something bad..like the story of the prodigal son..Faith in God is more important than believing.. if the person is an atheist, but does good things and act accordingly, he can enter heaven.. because we are all equal in the eyes of God. and we are all his children..
