Abstract:

Ideas about the soul and the afterlife, of sin and God's purpose have shaped human thinking for thousands of years. Religious rituals remain embedded in the major events of our lives. In Life After Death, evolutionary biologist Richard Dawkins asks what happens if we leave religion behind. He explores what reason and science might offer to inspire and guide our lives in religion's place. Can science bring understanding in the face of death, help us tell right from wrong or reveal the point of life in the first place? In a journey that takes him through visually stunning locations across the world, Richard Dawkins builds a powerful argument for facing up to the scientific truth about Life After Death--however hard that might be. Life After Death is part of the thought provoking BBC documentary series Sex, Death and the Meaning of Life which explores how science can help us live our lives and come to terms with our mortality.
