Faith is the ultimate test, not truth. Faith is the belief in the trustworthiness of an idea or deity that cannot be proved. By that standard, those most likely to go to heaven are those whose faith denies things easily proven scientifically, like the age of the earth, the rotation of the planets around the sun and the evolution of whales from land mammals.
Saying that Unitarians accept that Jesus Christ was of virgin birth and could walk on water, however unlikely those miracles are to be true, is not the same standard of faith since there is no way to repeat the experiment, verify its scientific impossibility, and yet believe it anyway.
Why would anyone want to be a Unitarian and run the risk of not going to heaven when you can become an evangelical Baptist and reject science entirely?
