You made the claim.

You have to prove a soul exists during life.
You have to prove a soul can exist after life ends.

Our understanding is based on evidence, science and reality. Your "understanding" is based on fear of the unknown.
You made the claim. Prove that eternal oblivion exists.

It's like this. If you add enough zeroes together, it will equal anything you want. That's how the universe is infinite and we never die.

Oh, Cthulhu, that was lame. Add all the zeros together and you get nothing but zero. You're playing a zero-dumb game here.

Quoting your OP:

As theres no evidence of our bodies being dead forever, I don't have to worry about oblivion. As my soul is infinite, I'll wake up in another universe. With my memories and stuff. Because everything is connected. God will revive me.

Theres just no evidence for how atheists believe they will die.

I believe we are infinite beings. Not limited to our brains.

Unless you remember the time before the Big Bang - indeed any time before your birth - then quite obviously you are finite.

Death will be exactly like the time before your birth.

You won't notice, because you won' t exist.

Any other theories you might come up with are simply wishful thinking combined with an oversized ego.

OP, best mix it up and interact morez before Moms rule 5's you into the oblivion you so desperately seek.

That said, we kinda share beliefs... kinda... like the ultimate answer...

But I suggest it is emergent from nothingness rather than the summation of zeroes, which is kinda dumb. Tongue

RE: Do atheists fear oblivion?
I'm sure it's been said before, but I'm not reading through this whole thing.
I don't fear the obliviion that preceded me either.
We are but a fart in the whirlwind.
