Would people be religious if they were never going to die?
Dr. Denise Carmody discusses the interesting question whether people would be religious if they were never going to die. She suggests that death gives people a greater urgency to live life, and makes them appreciate how precious life is. In this way, the reality of death can make people more religious.
