M‌‍‍‍‌‍‍‌‌‍‍‍‌‍‍‍‍‌‍‍y paper is for my Philosophy, theory and abstract thinking class. Below is the outline for my paper, and below that is the feedback I received from my professor. He wants us to use references as well. Part 1: -How different conceptions of the afterlife (or the lack of it!) affect our attitudes towards death – i.e., whether it is to be feared, whether it affects one’s life now, whether it is “nothing to us,” etc.? To me there is an afterlife, and that afterlife is heaven ? Heaven is the place that is peaceful, worry free, we get to meet God ? To have that afterlife you need to obey the commandments, follow the word of God, and just be a good person. ? Cannot be a sinner according to the bible if you want to get into heaven Part 2: The concept of an afterlife is one of the most mystifying intriguing topics that leaves everyone with the same question, is there truly life after death? Heaven, a place where most religious people believe that they will go after their timely or untimely death. It is that same concept of after life that I believe in. Yet one has strict rules that they must follow and obey in order to reach paradise. The concept of the afterlife has been studied and researched throughout many decades, yet no one really asks the real question, why are there so many people obsessed with theidea of an afterlife. I believe that the concept of an afterlife, a place where good people are rewarded and the bad are punished, brings comfort to those who fear what’s next and to those who have lost a loved one. In reality, nobody wants to think that when they die that is the end of everything, or that when a loved one passes they won’t be reunited with them when their time comes. So creating the concept of an “afterlife” not only comforts people but actually in a way manipulates masses of people to obey orders and a way of life in order to reach the promised land. Now that’s where I feel like we can dig a bit deeper, I believe that th‌‍‍‍‌‍‍‌‌‍‍‍‌‍‍‍‍‌‍‍ere is an afterlife my concept of afterlife is heaven, but if im thinking objectively have I along with others been trickedinto thinking that such place exists in order to follow the orders coming from a book written thousands of years ago. Nevertheless yes our attitudes towards the afterlife does affect our attitudes towards death, because we want to make sure that when we do pass we go on to a betterlife without suffering, so we ensure to do everything right now so that we can ensure a spot in heaven. Part 3:The main articles that I will completely focus on are “Americans’ Increasing Belief in Life after Death: Religious Competition and Acculturation, Americans’ Increasing Belief in Life after Death: Religious Competition and Acculturation, and Breaking apart the typical mortality salience manipulation: Two questions, two outcomes. These articles have given me all the insight I need to be able to completely answer these questions to the fullest. Doing my research on topics that I never really questioned is really interesting and mind blowing, how you can growup in a certain environment that you never question for so long and now and once you start looking into your belief it gives you a whole different perspective on life. And this the review I received from my professor two ways you could go with this: Lean into those questions about whether the concept of heaven is just a tool to manipulate people’s moral behavior. It’s a great question, and you could build your whole paper around it. A separate paper (or maybe the same paper, idk): you treat the idea that people who follow the rules go to heaven and those who don’t as a very simple thing. It is not a simple thing at all. Which rules? How strictly before you’re out? Are you sure that it’s not a matter of faith, rather than rules, as St. Paul says in Romans? Research it, and you’ll find that this is an area with endless questions. You could fill out a paper with that instead. (Or‌‍‍‍‌‍‍‌‌‍‍‍‌‍‍‍‍‌‍‍ also.)
