Does one hemisphere go to heaven and the other go to hell?

I have mentioned the neuroscientist Vilayanur S. Ramachandran on and off throughout the life span of this blog. As a reminder, he's well-known for his research with phantom limb syndrome and has recently displayed an interest in transsexuals.

I found a video of him speaking about someone who had his corpus callosum severed - making it so that his right and left hemispheres could no longer communicate. Thing is, one hemisphere was atheist and the other theist. To which Ramachandran asked, "If this person dies, does one hemisphere go to heaven and the other go to hell?"

Interesting!
