"The History of the Afterlife"
A 100,000 year-old grave contains an entire family interred in fetal position with medicinal herbs and tools -- a Neanderthal tomb. Written 4410 years ago, the world?s oldest religious text is a hieroglyph --describing the ?afterlife.? What is ?The Afterlife? -- and how has this image molded humankind? Frank Burton, philosopher & scientist at the "U of M," will:
1. Historically survey the ?afterlives? of proto-humans, San Bushmen, Aboriginals, Native Americans, Pacific Islanders, Egyptians, Sumerian Babylonians, Zoroastrians, Pagans, Hindus, Buddhists, Shintoists, Old Testament & Kabbalist Hebrews, Celts, Norse, Greco-Romans, New Testament Christians & their Orthodox, Gnostic, Marcionist, Manichean, Catholic, & Protestant sects & denominations, Muslims, Baha'i, Scientologists, New-Age Spiritualists & UFO Sects, Secularists, Atheists, and Transhumanists;
2. Moderate a discussion about how our societal and personal perspectives about an ?afterlife? have influenced world events and how we live our lives as individuals.
Don't WAIT until the afterlife to learn about it! RSVP "Yes" today!
