I think the two cancel each other out. We may be extraordinarily lucky to have existed at all, but we are also extraordinarily unlucky to exist in a universe (or at least on a planet) where biological death, especially after such a short time, is necessary. I know it's logically contradictory, but if I had had a choice prior to my birth I probably would have chosen to never exist in the first place.

This is not to say that I don't think there are other aspects of atheism and rationalism which offer comfort in the face of human suffering and mortality. I do. I just don't think this is one of them.
