H umans have always wondered and worried about what happens after death.
Many modern religions teach that we will live again, but archaeologists tell us that even ancient Neanderthals buried their loved ones with grave goods for the afterlife. Several major religions today teach the immortality of the soul, though each puts its own fingerprint on the idea. Today most of the religious world believes in an immortal soul that lives on in some form.
Others suppose that after death the soul will reanimate other life forms in an endless cycle of reincarnation. Most nonbelievers, of course, dispute the idea of a soul, being convinced that after death there is only nothingness.

Religion and Spirituality: On the Immortality of the Soul | Vision
For instance, he said, most Americans in the 21st century, Christian or not, believe that their soul is immortal by nature and that most if not all will be saved, because this idea of self-realization fits with American values. This suggests that notions of immortality are a purely human construct.
Is that all there is to it? Believers owe it to themselves to know whether the idea of an immortal soul stems from the human mind and if it has a biblical basis.
Commentaries on Living: First Series
In our search for clarity, we begin with a brief review of immortal-soul beliefs down through history. Ancient Egyptians, like other pagan peoples, observed the unending cycles of nature: in the heavens, the sun seemed to be reborn each morning and die each night; spring was a time of birth, growth and youth; autumn was a time of decline and old age; in winter plants died and even the sun seemed to fight for its existence; and the following spring the cycle began anew.
Historians record that Egyptians interpreted these patterns of life, death and renewed life as applying to humans as well. The ancient Egyptian civilization lasted more than 3, years. In the Old Kingdom, which began around B. The god Osiris played an important role in this shift and became the most important god of the Middle Kingdom ca.
Greek historian Plutarch ca. After Osiris was murdered by his brother Seth, his wife Isis gathered the body parts and used them to create the first mummy, after which Osiris, through elaborate ritual, was resurrected as the god of the dead and the underworld.
A virtuous life, worshipping the gods, and a proper funeral were the only requirements for a happy afterlife.
The mummy of the dead person was said to be a place of return for the wandering spirit, so it was ritually and magically preserved and protected. From that point in Egyptian history everyone could achieve eternal life. Throughout the ancient world, various other cultures and religions were developing apart from that of Egypt.
Farther east, Hinduism, Buddhism and Zoroastrianism also taught some form of immortality. A few centuries before the birth of Christ, the Greeks began to assert themselves in Europe, both culturally and in the evolution of their religious beliefs. Plato, Aristotle, Epicurus and the Stoics all worked out their own elaborate theories, which have since influenced much of Western philosophical and religious thought. Homer ca. So when his characters risked their soul, they risked their life.
The sixth and fifth centuries before Christ saw a considerable widening in Greek philosophical thinking. Plato saw the soul as much more than mind, capable of thinking and guiding the body. Provided it was a wise soul, it led the person to virtuous actions; but more, it possessed life essentially. In his view, the soul was the collection of life systems that function in the body.
