How long has mankind walked this earth? No one truly knows the answer to that question.
Is there a life after death? Again no one can truly know the answer to that question.
But since man has marked towards out modern civilisation most have hoped that a life after death does actually exist.
Great and powerful rulers have build large and impresive structures in the hope that they will aid them to achieve the afterlife. Religions have been invented in order to offer help in reaching the elusive afterlife. More religions and vast and complex studies have been made to try and prove that this elusive afterlife does in fact exist.
But still mankind dreams of it and hopes he is right. He appears to believe that this so called afterlife or heaven justifies our existance here on earth. Most of us have our theories and hopes But why should man's existance on this earth be any more important than that of any other creature, or tree or matter.
Once our life here on earth is finished and our body has decayed, our purpose is complete. So why do we humans believe that we are so important the we are the exception to all the rules? Because nothing lives for ever!
