Every so often I run into a fundie-Christian type who wants to know why I'm not driven by fear of hellfire into bowing down before their god.

And I go back to 'what supports what I would maintain', and note that I have commitments and obligations, have a system that helps me to become the best person I can be, best able to support myself, my partners, my family, and my community thereby, and that I'm flatly not selfish enough to sabotage the good of others to spare myself threatened pain.  A god who disagrees with that is ... well, the orthodox Christian position about what hell is is 'separation from god', and if a god disagrees with me about the merits of doing the right thing by the entities I'm committed to and the material world, separation therefrom looks like heaven.

Well said.
