The End Is the Beginning?

There is no shame in being an atheist, a secularist, a materialist, a rationalist, or whatever else and still hoping that there is something beyond death. You don’t have to believe in a god to hope that whatever our selves are persists after death. The idea of ceasing to exist is terrifying, at least to me, and it’s a strong motivator to continue to live for as long as possible, but if we were able to live even after death? Well, that would be just fine, whatever form that would happen to take.
