A golden cube the size of a moon, landing on the surface of Earth -- New Jerusalem.
Spirit-Beings wiped of memory within the contaminated shrouds of flesh they inhabit -- an afterlife shared by both Gnostics and Scientologists.
Paradise visible merely by looking beside the spaces of everyday reality.
God as Machine -- the literal Son of Man.
The Universe as a Neural Net.
What are our modern conceptions of "The Afterlife" -- and how are these images molding the present and future of humankind? Frank Burton, Secular Bible Study Co-organizer, philosopher & scientist at the "U of M," will:
1. Present in Week 1 (April 10, 7-8:30pm) a PowerPoint show that historically surveys the "afterlives" of New Testament Christians & their Orthodox, Gnostic, Marcionist, Manichean, Catholic, & Protestant sects & denominations, Muslims, Baha'i, Scientologists, New-Age Spiritualists & UFO Sects, Secularists, Atheists, Transhumanists, Singularitarians, and Neurocosmologists.
2. Moderate in Week 2 (April 24, 7-8:30pm) a 1stU-SBS dialogue about how our changing societal and personal perspectives about an "afterlife" have influenced modern history, current events, and the future of humanity -- and influence today how we live our lives as individuals.
Don't miss 1stU-SBS's Conversation on our Present and Future Conceptions of the Afterlife! RSVP "YES" today!
