Moral but Godless?

 What happens after death? Many people at one time or another contemplate this question. Discussions regarding this subject reveal a pattern such as in the following conversation.[1]  While sitting around a fire with adult neighbors in a driveway after the kids had canvassed the neighborhood for trick or treat, Ryan asks, “Who are you guys voting for on Tuesday?”

John replies, “Hey man, I’m not getting into talking about politics-It’s the fastest way to kill a good time.  Politics and religion are two things you should never talk about with friends.

Jill objects. “Really, John?”  “I agree not much good comes out of talking about politics but religion is different to me.  Politics only concerns this life but religion concerns things way too important not to talk about- like eternal life and stuff….we might be able to learn from one another.”
