If ultimate Altruism would be to use one's life to save another, how do you think this type of rational works for those believing in an afterlife to those whom do not? Which would be more difficult?

I don't think it matters either way. I know people of all faiths or of no faith who are altruistic. They do what they do because that is who they are. Anyone who is doing good because they think it will get them in good in the afterlife, is not truly altruistic. That is doing good for ulterior motive, and a selfish one at that. It won't matter when they get to the pearly gates.

They don't really give you that many words to ask a question. The gist is that while one sees that this life here on earth is all there is, the other would see that this here on earth is only the BEGINNING to eternal life.
