Do you contend that the afterlife is actual or a fantastical idea propagated by religion in order to assuage people that there is something....better? To those who believe in the afterlife, do you strongly contend that the afterlife is a guide as to how to live your life?

There is no afterlife, I believe that when we die that is it, and to be honest we are all in the same boat, so it doesn't bother me at all. The easter bunny would be a much more credible idea than a 'soul' floating up...
