If science found a way to make humans immortal, how would that affect your beliefs in the afterlife?

I don't think immortality is a possibility...

Even for science.

It's not conceivable to me that that would happen.  We are made for the afterlife.

I can't help but feel you are avoiding my question.  With religious belief, sometimes rational thought is suspended and left to faith.  Can none of you just play along and answer the question in a similar fashion?

What if science one day discovers what causes aging and all disease, and there is no more natural death?

Science would not change my beliefs. I have to ask you though, if human were immortal, would we stop breeding and reproducing? What happens when the earth becomes overpopulated if we do not stop breeding? Do we just use up all the resources? What about murder and crime and starvation? would we still age?

I tried this one time. Asked how tomorrow would be different for you if you found out definitively that there wasn't a god. Nobody would answer it. Maybe you'll have better luck.

It's not conceivable and I know it would never happen.
