It is said that theism resides deep inside man’s inner being or nature and if we study the unconscious and sub-conscious aspects of the mind, we will find an interest in a super natural being who has created the universe.
But this is not true only of Monotheism and Theism. All major and minor principles of religion should also reside within man’s soul or else the necessary coordination between divine legislation and creation would not occur. If we examine our hearts and the very depths of our souls be inner being, we will definitely find our conscience telling us that life here does not end with death; rather, death is a window towards the land of eternity. To cover this truth, we have to observe the “love for survival” for the fact that, if man was created for extinction, he should have been in love with extinction and loved death as the end of his life.
However, we see that the face of death has never been tolerable to man: rather, he has been escaping from it with all his energy. To chase after longer life and to search for the elixir of life are signs of this truth. This very love for survival shows that we have been created to be eternal. This love would have been baseless if we had been created to die. All basic loves inside us are created to complete our beings; the love to survive is of the same sort.
Remember that we embark on the issue pertinent to resurrection only after we have accepted the Being of God. We believe what He has put inside us has been placed there for a reason. For the same reason that our love for immortality has been given to us, however, this love would not exist without a belief in the other world. The history of mankind attests to the fact that in the same way that religion has always existed even among ancient peoples, the belief of a life after death has always been in existence.
The evidence left behind by ancient peoples in pre historic times, the way they constructed their graves and the way they buried their dead all indicate the fact that they had a firm belief in life after death.
