"Live a good life. If there are gods and they are just, they will not care how devout you have been, but will welcome you based on the values you have lived by. If there are gods, but unjust, then you should not want to worship them. If there are no gods, then you will be gone, but will have lived a noble life that will live on in the memory of your loved ones. I am not afraid."

comment Why are 3 nucleotides used as codons for amino-acid mapping in DNA?
@Kevin thanks, and you are absolutely right. I have given the answer a general re-work because I don't think it flowed properly having been adapted from a different question, and have taken your comment into account. Many thanks.

Improved some rationale based on comments, and generally re-worked the answer to make it better.

I have asked and answered this here because I had posted this answer to the linked question, but that was not truely answering it. There are now much better alternative answers, so I have asked the question I actually answered here!
