"Empedocles on Etna"

Michael Shermer's account of debating creationists on the afterlife is funny, but concludes with profundity borrowed from the poet Matthew Arnold:
Is it so small a thing,
To have enjoyed the sun,
To have lived light in the Spring,
To have loved, to have thought, to have done;
To have advanced true friends, and beat down baffling foes;
That we must feign a bliss
Of doubtful future date,
And while we dream on this,
Lose all our present state,
And relegate to worlds yet distant our repose?
