Sometimes true.  I'm not an Athiest yet when someone passes I don't go to their "funeral"  I will join friends who want to celebrate that person's life though.

  I do that as well. The last funeral I went to was my sister's and I vowed to never go to another one. She died from breast cancer when she was 29 and people were more concerned about the way she died, how young she was and how much of a shame it was instead of thinking about the wonderful person she was in life and the many wonderful things she did.

OMG I am dealing with that right now with my mother passing.  I think there should be a book on funeral and death ethics. The shit that come out of people mouth is unbelievable.

I've been to two funerals in my life, one when I was very small, and I really don't remember much of it.  The other's was my father's memorial (he was cremated), I just felt that I didn't belong among all those people weeping and saying how they would miss him...I wanted to go home open up a bottle of Jack, suck back a 6 pack and think about the good as well as bad about him.  I think more of the memorial was for my mom than my father really, and she never gave a damn whether he lived or died to begin with...

Hmmm... I guess my church is different. I don't remember celebrating death. Even at funerals, we celebrate the person's life.

 What it means is that Atheists live for the NOW when believers are living to get their reward in the afterlife.
