Why do people care about god or heaven?

I don't give a shit about either of them. Why do you think people are so obsessed with these subjects? I don't care if there's an afterlife. I don't care if there's some guy looking down on me. What's the obsession? The people who are so into this are always people who run on fear. There's also a load of narcissism in play as well. Humans need to believe that they're the center of the universe, and can't comprehend the very idea that once they're dead, that's it. There's a lot of unhappy people in the world. They probably need to feel that there's something better for them eventually, and heaven will be it. Then there's the dead friends and relatives thing (no pets). Still, none of this interests me. Even if I was poor, living on the streets, and/or had my closet friends and family all died on me, I still wouldn't hold out for an afterlife. Hey, if there's one, that's nice. I don't care if there is one or not though. I guess I'm just laid back. I live my life. Why should I worry? Please tell me I'm not the only one who feels this way. I can't be the only one who feels settled, and won't go to pieces at the very notion that there's nothing else beyond our realm. One other thing, for all these people so into god, how do you reconcile people starving and dying in Africa? Does god only care about Westerners? People of the West are always praying, proclaiming every to be a miracle, god's intervention when they find some missing white girl.
