Would people be religious if they were never going to die?
Dr. John Carmody discusses the interesting question if people were immortal would they still be religious. He suggests that being mortal only shapes religion, it does not make religion. What makes a religion are all the other questions humans ask about all the mysteries in the world, and the search for meaning in their lives.
