I think only religions have held even the hope of answering these kind of questions. From eternal life in heaven to birth death cycles - some form of eternity and good life after death is promised by almost all religion. And humans need that answer and hope so dearly. Otherwise a little bit of intelligence is all it takes to figure out that life is not that worth it. If I am going to simply become dust, then why even bother with anything? Why be moral? Why be good to others? That is why in spite of so many odds religions have survived in capturing people's attention for centuries. No other theory has stood the test of time.

So my short way of answering is, if you decide not to look at religion, then there simply is no answer, and only frustration will remain :-). And logically speaking, it is better to believe in something (some religion which holds some meaning to life and after life instead of we are only dust and some chemicals and came by some random chance theory) which might have a chance of being true than to spend your life in total frustration. :-)
