I always hear atheists saying stupid stuff like "Religion is only for people who can't accept their own mortality to feel comfortable with death". But really what is more comforting? Religious afterlife or atheist "afterlife"?
Eternal suffering (this is what happens to 99,999...% of the people according to South Park)
Reincarnation. Also a form of eternal suffering although a lesser kind of suffering.
Meanwhile athest afterlife:
Oblivion. No suffering whatsoever. In fact it's a kinda like paradise considering ignorance=bliss. Since this is the ultimate form of ignorance it is also the ultimate form of bliss.
So it's really the atheists taking the easy way out when looking at death.
Personally though I don't belive in any of these, although closest to my view is reincarnation, but these are the mainstream views.
