What is the value of belief in an afterlife for those facing death?
Dr. Margaret Farley discusses how different religions support the way faithful people face death. She clearly states how she has experienced no correlation between how people face death, with fear or no fear, and whether or not they believe in God or an afterlife. She specifically reflects on a woman she has recently met and the women’s own acceptance of nothingness as her own type of faith journey. In this reflection, Farley concludes that there is only a need for a real, developed worldview for a person to face death with meaning.
