Exactly, we are here, we're the ones doing what we're doing in this life time, on this planet. We work together to make a better place no matter the race etc. This life is our responsibility and only ours.

There is nothingness. Nothing to believe in, nothing to look forward to after death.
I have spent my life questioning everything spiritually. I dabbled in atheism for a spell....... but that was many years ago. Atheists often argue that religion is a crutch, and only for the weak minded. Perhaps for some, but spirtuallity does not need to be bound by the bonds of some deities/religions. You are free to accept god or a higher power or whatever you want at your own pace and level.
There is huge and varying degree of "believers". It is not bound by the constraints of science but quite the contrary.
to each his own
