If cowboys go to cowboy heaven, do atheists go to atheist heaven?

    You know, warriors go to Valhalla, etc.

      No unfortunately, they go to A theist heaven like everyone else. (a-theist heaven)

      It's a trick the English language put in to make it easier to track the payment of heaven-taxes

      What if a cowboy marries a city slicker? Will they be separated by barbed wire, and barking dogs?

      Of course they do, where else would they go?

      But having said that, one would probably have to define "atheist heaven" as nowhere.

        Atheist hell would be awesome though, I'd be hanging with Einstein and socrates. Unfortunately I'm not an atheist, so I'd probably burn in an individual, introspective hell.

          Einstein would deny that he was an atheist.  It riled him that atheists would quote him in support of their views.  To be sure, he did not believe in a "personal" God, but considered himself more of an agnostic.

            I'm pretty sure there's a philosopher's hell. That's where I'll be going when I die, at least I hope so. All the biggest names are down there, just ask any christian.

            "I believe in Spinoza's God who reveals himself in the orderly harmony of what exists, not in a God who concerns himself with fates and actions of human beings."  Albert Einstein.

            Now go read what the Spinoza's God is:

            Quite the contrary, he was riled by believers who spread lies about his faith, or lack thereof.

              "In view of such harmony in the cosmos which I, with my limited human mind, am able to recognize, there are yet people who say there is no God. But what really makes me angry is that they quote me for the support of such views." -- Albert Einstein

          Haha, atheist hell would be like some poor sumbich burning but insisting 'I still don't believe, I still don't believe' while the pope is next to him burning and denying he is in theist hell, just a few feet away.

        Is there a Cowboy hell?

          Only if there is a cowboy heaven.  I think some sort of cosmic law says you can't have one without the other.

    I think you might have listened to a little too much country music to come up with that question.

      lol lol lol  I think I've already been to cowboy hell. My cowboy-country music-singer-song writer-wannabe ex-husband dragged me all over the southwest to every seedy hole in the wall, dive bar, rodeo, and county fair you can imagine, and I was pregnant too. Yes, there is without a doubt a cowboy hell, only it's really the same place as cowboy heaven, it's just hell to those who aren't cowboys.

        Imagine  a cowboy hell would be force to share with other Worldwide Religions and have intellectual converstation with Atheist and Nerds.

    I think we are all going to be stunned by both heaven and hell. I doubt that anyone has any idea what we will be like and what such a place will be like. I am believer but my fear that heaven would be anything like church scares me to death.

      I was taught as a child that in heaven we would all sit at God's feet to listen to and worship him.

      Presumably a cowboy will sit at the cow's feet and listen to it moo for him.  Cowboy hell will be at the other end of the cow.

        A most adroit observation. ( I always wanted to say that.) 
        Will the cowboy still moo? 
        If we moo for God will he give us Hay?
        If He Moos for us, do we Laugh?

          You are being rude and irreverent.

          The cowboy doesn't moo; he listens, trying to understand.

          The cowboy doesn't moo for the cow, so won't get Hay.  He may get milk if in front; if in back a more solid concoction.  Either way, the days of steak are over.

          If the cowboy laughs at the moo, he must go the the back of the cow and sit for eternity.

                So, is the cow in cow hell?  Or is she just clocking in daily like a normal job?

                  No, cow hell is earth, where people like steaks.  Cows don't have jobs, though - they just eat, moo, and provide heaven and hell for cowboys.

                    Oh.  I hear cows formed a union over in India about a million years ago, now they go around mooing in starving hindus faces.  I guess hindus turn the udder cheek.  So is that cow heaven?
