Wait. What if alternate universes do exist? Of course that wouldn’t matter for us, since we’ll probably never find out for sure. But what if alternate universes apply to the afterlife? What if some religions really are true, but only when it comes to particular universes? Maybe when we die, our souls will just pass through a portal into another universe, and depending on where we end up, that is our fate. Maybe one universe could be considered hell, and another heaven. Maybe that’s why so many theists are certain they’re right. Because they are. But other people are, too. Maybe we enter an alternate universe based on what we believe in our hearts — there’s some gatekeeper into other realms, and they bring us where we want to go, or where we’ve grown up believing we will go. Maybe we get to pick. Or maybe it’s by chance.
