Why Do So Many Believe That Death Is Not The End?

Why do so many people believe that death is not the end? (Even people who wouldn’t call themselves “religious”). Perhaps it’s because of the awful consequences for things we care about like justice, meaning, and purpose? If we are just worm food after we keel over, none of those matter any more. In this Short Answers film, Solas’s Andy Bannister explores some views about death—and whether our hunches about the hereafter offer us any clues as to what really happens after death.
