Atheists think that nothing happens after death. That is simply not the case. It is impossible to cease to exist. If it was possible to cease to exist then nobody would ever be born. It's a fact that we are eternal beings. This human experience is only a temporary thing. We go back to being our infinite selves after death.
The state of nothingness doesn't exist. What happens after death is we do what our soul craves. The universe only gets better as time goes on, because the universe makes use of what new stuff comes into existence. So it's impossible to cease to exist.
We have no evidence of eternal oblivion too. For good reason, because we never die. We have it good on Earth so we should expect it will be even better after death. I'm not scared of eternal oblivion because it doesn't exist. We continue on to better things after death.
Fact of the matter is that the state of nothingness doesn't exist. We go life to life. As the universe evolves to be better.
