    Worms and other critters that live in the ground must have sustenance, so the eco system revolves again.

    I believe that all matter contains consciousness, but not necessarily self awareness. Therefore my matter will return to the ‘resting state’ of matter/energy, which is its default state.
    Will I be aware of it? Probably not, but I won’t be able to say until it happens.
    From this I theorize that there is no heaven or hell, and no sky father. There is no ‘central government’ in heaven, no holy host, no judgement day; none of the accoutrements of Christianity or other monotheistic traditions. There may be consciousness that lives past the body, but probably not.
    that's my best guess, which makes me an animist, more-or-less.

    Heaven can be accessed by galactic super civilizations at a supreme level of evolution by opening portals to the higher dimensions posited by M theory which is referred to by the religions as the Heavens. God is also real because he is an extraterrestrial possibly from another universe. So, from a scientific perspective, religion can be justified.

    (1) Is that what you believe in Or do you believe there is more to it than that?

    Also

    (2) What purpose do you believe is there to life?

    1/ That is exactly what i believe.
    2/I don't really think about the purpose of life. (Leave that to the NTs.) I'm not into overthinking things, just have fun and enjoy everything there is in life, because you never know when it will be gone.

    You actually have a purpose.

    I'm not an Atheist, but I work off the same dataset as them people. I don't see any life after death, just nothing. I suppose in a strange way you can live on in the effects of your actions, but it's not the same as living consciousness.

    For many atheists, death is a statement of inevitable biology. Biological systems necessary for life cease. Consciousness fades. Credits roll.. After then, who knows? The centerpiece of atheistic thought isn't that life after death is impossible, simply that the offered theological answers fall short.

    As far as 'purpose' or existential meaning, I would ask why life necessarily requires purpose for it to have meaning? Isn't it enough to simply live? That's just my take. I'd anticipate that you'd encounter many answers, varying from things like family; work; self-improvement; living for the moment; seeking truth, etc.
    Basically this.

    than to serve and obey them. - David Hume

    There's more. Then I become organic matter.
    (2) What purpose do you believe is there to life?
    Our genes' purpose is to survive and replicate, but most of us have a good amount of free will to go against this impulse and do whatever we want (some people are too dumb for that though). So there's no rigid purpose. Personally, I mostly want a life without big regrets.
