I envy those who expect a continued existence after death. It is a comforting thought mechanism for dealing with human morality. I have a Christian friend who knows that I am an atheist. He smugly expects to be able to say: “I told you so.” Since I expect oblivion, I obviously cannot have a similar expectation. An attitude I always admired & which I use to cope with my mortality BTW: I am not an evangelizing atheist. I tend to avoid discussing politics & religion. Such arguments are time consuming & seldom (if ever) change a person’s belief system.
