I'm an atheist. Ask me a question.
#14
RE: I'm an atheist. Ask me a question.
I rather embarrassedly found myself quoting House MD here: why do I not believe in an afterlife: "because I have to believe this [life] is more than a test". That and having a rational mind and a healthy level of skepticism.
There is nothing to fear if there is no afterlife. I can't remember who said it first, but I have been dead, or nonexisting, for billions of years before I was alive, and I will be dead or nonexisting for billions more before this universe ends (if it does, that's a whole nuther question). No diff. There is nothing to fear in oblivion.
