The truth is we as a species do not know everything. For one, there are MANY possibilities of a soul beyond the mere "energy" that is you, which we know dissipates at death but to where, to what "destinations" and with what degree of remaining sentience we can only speculate.
Speculate, formulate, test hypothesis to the best of your abilities. That's what intelligent people do.
And NO!!! I am not suggesting suicide!!! You'll find out soon enough...
