He waited till pi day to become one with the universe. I can't say RIP about an atheist, but the world lost a great mind and he will be missed.

I doubt G-d will have pity on him just cause of the wheelchair and ALS. mock the creator, and suffer. but who am I to judge? perhaps purgatory shall suffice.

not looking good for purgatory. Stephen is so screwed now.

Role in relation to sin Edit
In addition to accepting the states of heaven and hell, Catholicism envisages a third state before being admitted to heaven. According to Catholic doctrine, some souls are not sufficiently free from the temporal effects of sin and its consequences to enter the state of heaven immediately, nor are they so sinful and hateful of Christ as to be destined for hell either.[29] Such souls, ultimately destined to be united with God in heaven, must first be cleansed through purgatory – a state of purification.[30] Through purgatory, souls "achieve the holiness necessary to enter the joy of heaven."[31] The Church makes a distinction between mortal sin, which incurs both temporal punishment and eternal punishment, and venial sin, which incurs only temporal punishment.[32] Mortal sin is a "sin whose object is grave matter and which is also committed with full knowledge and deliberate consent."[32] "If it is not redeemed by repentance and God's forgiveness, it causes exclusion from Christ's kingdom and the eternal death of hell, for our freedom has the power to make choices for ever, with no turning back."[32]

In contrast, venial sin (meaning "forgivable" sin) "does not set us in direct opposition to the will and friendship of God"[33] and, although still "constituting a moral disorder,"[34] does not deprive the sinner of friendship with God or the eternal happiness of heaven.[33] However, since venial sin weakens charity, manifests a disordered affection for created goods, and impedes the soul's progress in the exercise of the virtues and the practice of the moral good, it merits temporal punishment.[33]

The Church notes that purification from our sinful tendencies can occur during life. The situation has been compared to that of someone who needs to be cleansed of any addiction. As from any addiction, rehabilitation from the "disordered affection for created goods" will be a gradual and probably painful process. It can be advanced during life by voluntary self-mortification and penance and by deeds of generosity that show love of God rather than of creatures. After death, a cleansing process can be recognized as a still necessary preparation for entering the divine presence.[35]

I like purgatory. you can be an asshole all your life and clean up the mess post mortem.

if i were going to go Christian, id definitely go Catholic. it's the oddest one. always go with the original. copies won't cut it.

seems best for lawyers, too. lots of rules to argue. I like the Pope. also catholicism might possibly be only way into heaven. but we can argue about that on Catholic chat groups later...

Of course, because God was a lawyer.

A surgeon, an engineer, and a lawyer were arguing about which profession was the oldest, and the doctor said, "Well, on the fifth day of Creation, God took a rib from Adam, so surgery is the oldest profession." The engineer said, "But, before that, God created the heavens and earth from chaos, so engineering is the oldest profession." And the lawyer said, "Yes, but who created the chaos?"

like!!! but IMHO needed a slight change to reflect what happens in the real world (when those that in charge of making the rules basically ignore the existence of "math")
