Reading "A Model of Religion and Death" by Derek Pyne.

 

He is trying to make sense of why fear of death is strongest in those with lower levels of religiousity. And  whay it is low in those no religiousity (atheists) and very high religiousity.

 

I think the take home mesage is, in my words:

 

"Atheists have everything to gain in life and nothing to lose in death."

 

"Theists who think they’ll go to heaven have little to nothing to gain in life and everything to gain in death."
