Would we be religious if we were never going to die?
Rev. Dr. David Tracy explains how he believes humans would remain religious if they were not going to die. He acknowledges that we would certainly change the way in which we do religion, but we would not abolish it. For Tracy religious experience not only reflects on death, but also the beauty of nature and humanity, which he believes would have greater value for religion if humans were immortal.
