Prove to me that there is an afterlife I would actually like to go to. (I have not heard a description of heaven
Only one significant issue: your personal address for eternity.
from anyone that is even remotely more appealing than the descriptions of hell I have heard/can imagine.)
Prove to me that you know what that being or those beings want as payment to send me to this afterlife I might
THEN I'll give a damn.
The current evidence indicates extremely strongly that.
There are no such things as souls.
There is no afterlife of any kind.
There are consequently no beings that determine what that afterlife is like.
And finally even if all that wasn't true there is no evidence that if we have souls, there is an afterlife that would be appealing,
and that there are beings who decide on who goes there.
There is nobody who can reasonably claim to know that those beings exist, or what they want.
There is no evidence or reason to suppose that even if there are gods and afterlives that any present day religion is correct.
