Does afterlife need God?

Does afterlife need God?
Let's say that there came up some hard evidence that afterlife exists, would that neccesarily prove that (some) God exists or could that world exist without any God, like this one does? I mean could that world also have a natural explanation?
teachings of the Bible are so muddled and self-contradictory that it was possible for Christians to happily burn heretics alive for five long centuries. It was even possible for the most venerated patriarchs of the Church, like St. Augustine and St. Thomas Aquinas, to conclude that heretics should be tortured (Augustine) or killed outright (Aquinas). Martin Luther and John Calvin advocated the wholesale murder of heretics, apostates, Jews, and witches. - Sam Harris, "Letter To A Christian Nation"

Natural for that world, but more than likely, beyond anything humans could comprehend.

An afterlife could be nature's way of recycling "souls". Perfectly natural.

What an afterlife won't do is keep your memories backed up to usb!

If an afterlife consisted of ghosts floating about (for lack of a better term) I don't see that would necessarily require a deity.

I can't think of any serious objection to a godless afterlife.

Hey, I found a cave! That proves dragons!...

An afterlife (natural, supernatural, ultra mega natural, doesn't matter) could only certify it's own existence.
I am the Infantry. I am my country’s strength in war, her deterrent in peace. I am the heart of the fight… wherever, whenever. I carry America’s faith and honor against her enemies. I am the Queen of Battle. I am what my country expects me to be, the best trained Soldier in the world. In the race for victory, I am swift, determined, and courageous, armed with a fierce will to win. Never will I fail my country’s trust. Always I fight on…through the foe, to the objective, to triumph overall. If necessary, I will fight to my death. By my steadfast courage, I have won more than 200 years of freedom. I yield not to weakness, to hunger, to cowardice, to fatigue, to superior odds, For I am mentally tough, physically strong, and morally straight. I forsake not, my country, my mission, my comrades, my sacred duty. I am relentless. I am always there, now and forever. I AM THE INFANTRY! FOLLOW ME!

Of COURSE there is an afterlife.

That' s the good news.

The bad news?

You'd not in it if you're dead
