"I think that when I die I'll cease to exist, and in some ways I'm happy about that." Life is hard work." Life is good, worthy work that I'm proud of and that makes me feel good, for the most part, but even though I'll probably be sad to die (and I'd hate to think I was about to die any time soon), I'm still glad, in principle, that some day life will cease, and my burdens will dissolve with my joys." I don't want to live forever."

It describes it for the person who was saying it. Atheists are individuals with individual beliefs about life and what comes after so one cannot generalize about them any more than one can accurately generalize about all theists.

Meh? Sort of but not really.

What gives mortality (life) value is that its not infinite. What value would anything have in a situation in which its simply only a matter of an inexhaustible resources to obtain?

Tot wit: anything you want in life will cost a penny. Anything. And, conversely, pennies are just like they are now. Literally, people throw them in wishing wells and you find them in parking lots just laying around.
Here we have an advocate for Islamic arranged marriages demonstrating that children can consent to sex.

This is stupid, likely the guy is denial he will cease to exist, and thinks of it as going to sleep. Any atheist who doesn't have some sort of blockage in their brain is either scared of death of ceasing to exist, or they are retarded or liars.

The whole reason religion exists is to help people avoid this fear. It is hard for the human mind to deal with.

For all that the fear of death is common, and the desire to defer death is psychologically understandable, I do not believe yearning for eternal life is wise, logically coherent, altruistic or morally sound.

As other members have pointed out, the rejection of gods has diverse and individual rationale, so not every atheist will agree with me. However, I think the position quoted is not unusual.

And not all religions promise a life after death in the first place. In the faiths that do, I think even the religious doubt their own dogma regarding eternal life, at times.

If I leave the room I increase the likelihood of my death. I could get hit by a car or even a tornadoe with no shelter to protect me.

I have no problem with living forever, it would be interesting to watch the universe unfold and see what happens to mankind.

Christians go a step further then reality, they say when we die we go to heaven or hell. Typical christians thinking they have the answers for everything. It's straight up presumptuous and rude to think you can answer , or begin to explain. What happens when you die?

This question makes no sense.
All atheism is is the lack of belief in a god(s).
The premise to any atheists thinking about an afterlife can vary vast amounts, so much that asking what the general premise to atheists thinking in anything is a nonsensical question.
It is like asking someone that lacks a cellphone their opinion on communication. There is still A LOT of views they can hold about it. SO many different possible views that one cannot pin down a good "general" view.

Sometimes the monstrous kuan got angry, and when it did it turned into a gigantic bird (p'eng), whipping up terrible storms as it emerged aborve the ocean surface (M. SoymiA533;, in P. Grimal, 1963)

There will be no deities in this afterlife? I don't know. Weird question.

Honestly, I've met all of one atheist who said she believed in an afterlife (if reincarnation counts). So... yeah, I guess that's afterlife minus God/gods.

China

Yu-kiang

The ancient Chinese believed that a strange mythological figure, Yu-kiang, held sway over the sea. This dragon-riding water deity had the body of a fish but the hands and feet of a human being. It was not a true fish, however, but a kuan, a huge whale several thousand li long that came from the Northern Sea and could walk. Sometimes the monstrous kuan got angry, and when it did it turned into a gigantic bird (p'eng), whipping up terrible storms as it emerged aborve the ocean surface (M. SoymiA533;, in P. Grimal, 1963)

Atheism makes no claims about an afterlife. There are actually some atheists that believe that an afterlife does exist.

" Life is hard work." Life is good, worthy work that I'm proud of and that makes me feel good, for the most part, but even though I'll probably be sad to die (and I'd hate to think I was about to die any time soon), I'm still glad, in principle, that some day life will cease, and my burdens will dissolve with my joys." I don't want to live forever."

Atheism has no intrinsic system of value or intrinsic system of wants and desires.

None of this represents atheism. It represents what SOME atheists believe, but not atheism itself.

What is a general premise to an Atheist's thinking who believes in an afterlife?

This question makes no sense.
All atheism is is the lack of belief in a god(s).
The premise to any atheists thinking about an afterlife can vary vast amounts, so much that asking what the general premise to atheists thinking in anything is a nonsensical question.
It is like asking someone that lacks a cellphone their opinion on communication. There is still A LOT of views they can hold about it. SO many different possible views that one cannot pin down a good "general" view.

But you do believe in god(s)
No?

You do.believe in gods as I showed above. Atheists believe in more mythological creatures than just about anyone. See above. I proved it!

(Kidding of course)

I will admit thought Big Bangers almost made me chuckle.
