I would have said, "All creatures with souls go to heaven," and leave it at that. Cue Sally philosophizing about the nature of a soul, and whether dogs or even humans have them.

In that one panel, where he turns around and sees the grave, I thought it was the girl that was dead and he was just trying to find a way to deal with it...until the next panel and reading the grave.

There is a Meme heaven, but no hell. The bad ones just get resurrected every day.

The flaw in the logic is that the turning point is "Idea Heaven". The obvious problem being, ideas can't die.

Growing up at Sunday school and bible camp, this is actually what we were told, pretty consistently. I think I prefer the ancient Celts who let everything have a soul.

Ideas can die, we just can't know that they are dead.
