Andrew Sullivan har mottagit mejl i vilka ateister berättar om sin syn på döden. Det här synsättet stämmer väl in på mitt eget:
I think that when I die I’ll cease to exist, and in some ways I’m happy about that. Life is hard work. Life is good, worthy work that I’m proud of and that makes me feel good, for the most part, but even though I’ll probably be sad to die (and I’d hate to think I was about to die any time soon), I’m still glad, in principle, that some day life will cease, and my burdens will dissolve with my joys. I don’t want to live forever.
