Details

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, Secular Bible Study Co-organizer, philosopher & scientist at the "U of M," will:

1. Present in Week 1 (March 13, 7:00-8:30pm) a PowerPoint show and text-translation handout that historically surveys 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, and Greco-Romans.

2. Moderate in Week 2 (March 27, 7:00-8:30pm) a 1stU-SBS dialogue about how our historical and past societal perspectives about an "afterlife" have influenced past world history.

Don't miss 1stU-SBS's Conversation on our Ancient Historical Conceptions of the Afterlife! RSVP "YES" today!
