I'm going to preach my own atheism right now, I believe there is no higher power, that no after life exists even if there is a god, and that when you die, you rot in the ground.
Why am i ok with this you might ask, I'm ok because i find comfort in the ones i love. I am sure there is no afterlife, but if there is i will be surprised after my life and just smile and be happy to see the ones i love again. Now does this mean I since i am a nonbeliever that i hate religion and that i fear death? No of course not, if you fear death, you don't live life to its fullest you die a bit each day instead of seeing those you love and hugging them and realizing how lucky you are to be alive, celebrating and loving being alive. I lost my train of thought, i may edit this later with more after it comes back
