Seems like an appropriate question to ask today in light of the dispatch of Usama Bin Ladin.  
When I gave up Christianity it was hard for me to realize the ramifications and implications of the decision.  I first accepted the concept that there isn’t an afterlife – at least not one described in Christian doctrine.  I was OK with the idea that I wouldn’t spend an eternity playing a harp on a cloud in heaven.  But, for me anyways, there was a sinking realization that hell didn’t exist either.  All of a sudden, telling a jerk to go to hell lost all of its sting.  Terrible people like Hitler (not an atheist by the way…), Stalin, Ted Bundy, Jeffery Dahmer – people that I always felt had a special spot in hell reserved just for them – just dead, nothing more.  It was almost as depressing as coming to grips with the no heaven epiphany.
