Many events were unexplainable and maybe even seemed to be magical before
all events since can be explained. One may question their beliefs based

of belief. This belief however is different for everyone. The actions of a
religious person stem from their belief in a god. A person may act morally
of the two. This is not to say, that one whom does not believe in a god
does not act morally or responsibly. An atheist^?s actions do not stem from
the fear of judgement from god but rather from the judgement of society.
Religious and non-religious people alike will most likely base their actions
on their conception of the highest ethical good.

As is there no evidence supporting the belief that there is no afterlife.
Quite a few people wish to live forever and in doing this adopt the idea of
the afterlife. Camus believed that, ^?Men are never really willing to die
except for the sake of freedom: therefore they do not believe in dying
completely.^? I believe many people live with the hope that they will die
physically, they will spiritually live forever in the kingdom of heaven.
Many live their lives in anticipation of an afterlife, which after all may
not exist. The goal, which these people have set for themselves, includes
spending an eternity in heaven. Some may ask if in fact, these lives were
wasted in pursuit of an afterlife, which may only be fictional. I believe

Personally, I do not believe in the afterlife, but I do not deny that it
could exist. My actions are made with the judgement of society in mind and,
therefore, are moral and responsible according to the expectations of modern
society. I have found happiness in my life and I feel complete. I do not
wish to live forever, but rather I accept that one day I must die, both
physically and spiritually. My life is not based on the prerequisites set
