Saw an article today on an experiment the results of which indicate that people with religious beliefs seem to fear death more than those without. Very strange. One would think that people who believe in eternal life would be in more of a hurry to embrace it.
It reminds me of how I have always found it strange how Ghanaian Christians hold the notion that the flesh is impure and temporary... and then spend unreasonable amounts of money (to the point of getting into debt) on the dead bodies of our loved ones before sending them off into the afterlife.
Both seem a little hypocritical.
