Question about permanent death

Question about permanent death
Are there atheists here who believe that there is some sort of afterlife? I personally still believe that there is something in afterlife, even if I dislike the idea.

Not for me. Perhaps the energy that flows through me, is recycled. But, I'll be dead.

Only in the sense that the particles and molecules we are made of become part of other things over and over.

Sure there is something after this life. Everything on this earth gets recycled. Thing is, before it gets recycled it gets reduced to tiny particles. Then it becomes part of something else. And round and round it goes.

I have been informed several times that as an atheist I am constrained by solipsism.  That means that upon my death the world will cease to exist.  Ergo, there is nothing after life.

More seriously, no, I don't believe in an afterlife.  Not only is there no sort of reliable evidence for such a claim and such claims are usually formulated in such a way that we living people have no way of confirming them in a manner that can be reported to other living people, but the manner in which lesions to small sections of the brain can drastically alter a person's personality, intellect, reasoning ability, memories, and so forth, leaves significant doubt that these things can survive the brain's total destruction.
Being an antipistevist is like being an antipastovist, only with epistemic responsibility instead of bruschetta.

There will be no death for me.  As I am the All-Being, Master of Time, Space and Dimension, the notion of there being a state of affairs in which I am not is incoherent.
