In the unlikely event it could be proved with absolute certainty that no deity or afterlife exists, and when you die you cease to be, what difference would it make to your life?

It would make no difference to me at all.

Life is all too much ............................................. and not enough.

It is only when you form your question precisely and accurately that you receive the true answer.

It would make no difference to me, as well. I saw through the falacy of religion when I was about 14 years old. From then on I had the idea that after death is the same as before birth.

I don't remember me before I was born, and if I don't remember me after I die, death is nothing to worry about.

I would look at hot Woman with lust, and still make sure they do not catch me looking at them that way.

You forgot to end with "Because without God, there are no morals".

I disagree. Morality is not based on religion or ideas of life after death, it is based on the self-preservation and wellbeing of the individual within society. A moral and well-ordered society is more beneficial to the individual than anarchy, and we all realize this (except for the thugs here and there who will always exist within any society).

I agree with you.

That's an interesting question for a Christian. Many churches would disband, although I suspect a few would remain in existence for the fellowship.  For me personally, there would be no more Bible study, I suppose.  Past that, I don't think I would change much.  I would still consider the goals of "spiritual fruit" (peace, joy, love, compassion, patience, kindness, and others) to be laudable, so I would still try to incorporate those into my character.  However, I would still have to seek an answer for the spiritual phenomena I have experienced which I perceive to be real.

One's reality is another's nightmare.

I would kill everyone I didn't like because the fear of hell fire is the only thing stopping me now.

I trust that is a jokey comment?
