    I find it perfectly rational for someone to conclude that belief in an afterlife will make living more comfortable than confronting the idea that there is nothing after death.

      will make life more emotionally comfortable for the chronic spender.  Until it is gone.  That is not rational, that is delusional.  We just give religions a pass when it comes to their delusions.

      •  The belief about the never ending bank account (0+ / 0-)

        comes into conflict with reality eventually. The belief in an afterlife? That never comes into conflict with reality. So I think your comparison is inapt.
