Answer by Scott Berry:

I see this question as exactly backwards. Let me rephrase it: "If you think this life is all you have, why wouldn't you be happy to get it over with?" Or the reverse: "If you think that God is going to welcome you to paradise after death, why aren't you in a hurry to get there?"
 
The question also misunderstands how people work entirely. What is the point of having a good meal if it doesn't last forever? What is the point of listening to a great song, since it's just going to end? What is the point of having loved ones, since either you or they will die eventually?
 
Enjoy life while you can. Create a purpose for yourself. Be kind to one another.

If atheists do believe that God does not exist then what is the point of living since we will all die anyway and have no purpose?
