I don't believe that this is accurate. I've, at least, known atheists who believe in reincarnation and the eternality of the consciousness and I would not be surprised at all to learn of a theistic belief in a god which does not involve the "heart and sould of man" being eternal. The Norse pantheon comes to mind in that I believe that most, if not all, of the warriors in Valhalla and at least several gods will not survive Ragnarok.
