The Atheists Agnostics extol Buddha as if he was one of them and he did not believe in heaven or hell.

That is not the case. It is one’s good deeds or bad deeds that make a hell or heaven for an individual.

Gospel of Buddha

“The Bodhisatta, having put Mara to flight, gave himself up to meditation. All the miseries of the world, the evils produced by evil deeds and the sufferings arising there-from, passed before his mental eye, and he thought: 1
“Surely if living creatures saw the results of all their evil deeds, they would turn away from them in disgust. But selfhood blinds them, and they cling to their obnoxious desires. 2
“They crave pleasure for themselves and they cause pain to others; when death destroys their individuality, they find no peace; their thirst for existence abides and their selfhood reappears in new births. 3
“Thus they continue to move in the coil and can find no escape from the hell of their own making. And how empty are their pleasures, how vain are their endeavors! Hollow like the plantain-tree and without contents like the bubble. 4”

The one true God has created both the hell and the heaven; and under a set principle of the one true God, one goes to the one an individual deserves.
