The Bible clearly states there is no 'afterlife', so why do so many self-proclaimed Christians think they'll end up in heaven after they die?

For example, most of them think there's some kind of 'afterlife', but there isn't. The Jews (you know, those people who gave us the 'Old Testament', and upon which Christianity was founded) don't accept this idea. Ecclesiastes 9:5 says as much.

There is no afterlife. There just isn't. Why would you want to exist for an eternity anyway?
