Would human beings be religious if they were never going to die?
Rev. Dr. Charles Curran discusses the question would humans still be religious if they were never going to die. He says religion attempts to answer the big “meaning of life” questions, but it is not only death that raises these questions. He uses the examples of suffering and beauty to show how other experiences of life prompt us to raise the same questions that death does and that religion attempts to answer.
