"The human body is just a machine. Sometimes it breaks down and needs repairs or spare parts, but eventually the breakdown is irreparable and life ends. When the body dies, some parts might be salvaged to repair other bodies, but for that particular body it is all over. Knowing that death is the end and that there is nothing after it gives me the courage and peace of mind to live my life, and to face my death as inevitable when it comes. I don't have to worry about an afterlife where I might be punished or bored nor do I have to believe any of the other tales that are told about the afterlife."
