Why do so many people just assume that the existence of an omnipotent
omniscient being who created the universe must imply that humans have a
eternal life after death, but the non-existence of such a being means they
have no chance of such a thing? Seems to me the existence of God and human
immortality are two independent ideas that need not be connected, and I see
no particular reason why they would be.
