Default Where do non christians go after they die?

According to the bible, do non Christians (and my definition of a Christian is someone who believes in Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior) go to heaven? Where do they go after they die? If you can, please include scripture.

Revelation 21:8 ESV
But as for the cowardly, the faithless, the detestable, as for murderers, the sexually immoral, sorcerers, idolaters, and all liars, their portion will be in the lake that burns with fire and sulfur, which is the second death.

Revelation 20:15 ESV
And if anyone's name was not found written in the book of life, he was thrown into the lake of fire.

To the OP's question, it's not clearly defined in the bible where everyone goes after they die. But it is clear that everyone's soul waits in expectation of the resurrection of the dead and the Last Judgement. These links below may help you (and Scriptures are included) :

Particular judgment - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Christian views on Hades - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

As to whether or not non-Christians can get into Heaven, we can't know that for sure; only God has the authority to pass judgement for them. But do be sure to pray for them, that God may have mercy on them, and that they may accept Him.

I don't believe the lake of fire mentioned in Revelation means eternal punishment. Fire is used symbolically throughout the OT as purification. Jesus said that those baptized would also be baptized with "spirit and fire".
