Can an Engineer go to heaven... ever?

Answer - No according the the 7 cardinal sins. Yes if you believe that once your sins have been repented for, you go to heaven.

To explain this useless hypothesis, I use excerpts from Wikipedia and other inputs from in-depth research into engineers' minds.

The seven deadly sins are as follows:


Lust - This one is self explanatory, a bunch of teenagers moving into their twenties.. come on!

Gluttony - "gluttony is the over-indulgence and over-consumption of anything to the point of waste."

Greed - Hey, I have 2 jobs, why can't I have 3?

Sloth - "a student who does not work beyond what is required (and thus fails to achieve his or her full potential) could be labeled slothful."

The part in Italics is what Wikipedia says about sloth. Well Wikipedia content writers... the definition of an engineer is "a student who does not work beyond what is required", all engineers are proud of it, so f**k your explanation of sloth!

Wrath - (or anger or "Rage") may be described as inordinate and uncontrolled feelings of hatred and anger.
There is no questioning the fact that every engineer must have faced the wrath of some professor therefore creating feelings of wrath for that said professor. Sometimes even a textbook can face the wrath of an engineering student!

Envy - "How did that idiot convince that girl to date him? He cleared that apti? I wrote the same answer but he got 1 mark more!"
Envy could be because your rival has a better job or a better chic or in the worst case, a better job and a better chic! There can be a million possibilities for committing this sin.

Pride - "It is identified as a desire to be more important or attractive than others, failing to give compliments to others though they may be deserving of them"

So all engineers are definitely sinners according to the above 7 sins. But each day of engineering is more than enough a punishment for the deadly sins. Hence, all engineers do end up with a guaranteed placement in heaven, of course no one is in a hurry to get there!
