One day, in the (hopefully) far distant future, my heart will issue it’s last, vital beat, my lungs will resign from their tediously repetitive job of inflating and deflating to provide me with oxygen, and, in quick succession, every organ, system, and function within my body will shut down, never to be restarted. The deafening noise of the trillions of explosions in my brain will go quiet, and the light that lives just behind my tired eyes will go out for the last time. There will be no one home. Every biological function that I had enjoyed without ever having paid them much thought will have come to their natural ends, and I will be dead.

More ...

[since my post this week was not particularly atheism/religion related, I thought I would put up this earlier one, not previously posted here, instead - hope it's okay!]

Thank you ... I'm glad it wasn't too gloomy (I know it's odd for a gothy-type person to say that, but, hey, I'm not all despair and misery - just during the week) :)

I also liked it.  You balanced the dark bits with the love of life.

Thank you both - always much appreciated!

I think as long as I can make one person glad to have had me around, I'll consider my work on this planet done :)

Good post!  I've always thought the only thing that matters when I'm dead is that my children remember me as being a wonderful mother to them.  I don't care what anyone else thinks (mostly), and when I'm dead I won't care about anything, I'll be dead.  I care right now though about building good memories for my (17 and 19 right now) children to carry with them.
