I always thought of myself as an agnostic even before I knew of the term. Atheist is definitely too strong of a term imho, and something people should really consider more closely before making a declaration about.
we shed our physical bodies and exist only within our souls
Well said.Practically, all our wants, needs, desires, beliefs, etc. are based on or around the physical. To suddenly be completed void of all the physical, I'd be a completely different person (or mind, or entity, or immaterial being, or whatever). There is no way I could 100% know that I'd have any of the same feelings or emotions (after all, emotions are just chemical/hormonal reactions in my physical body which I don't possess anymore after death). Would I still "love" my love ones? I honestly don't know. How can one love without the physical? Is it possible? I'm not god after all, who is (allegedly) omnibenevolent (i.e. all-loving).
By the way, there is a religion who promises piles of rice and 72 virgins to be deflowered, in the afterlife, for every martyr who dies killing infidels.
You can't argue with that kind of people; or probably you can tell them that your paradise consists of french fries and sluts.
