If you read the bible, why not read the Book of the Dead?

Crazy idea!

The bible is suposed to be Basic - Instructions - Before - Leaving - Earth, so what about the guide to the afterlife?

  • because i have no interest in any afterlife outside of Heaven.

    Answer by dullscissors at 1:19 PM on Aug. 28, 2010

  • 1. Heaven is afterlife, so you do have some interest dullscissors 2. Bizima4, The Bible was written by the same hands of mortal human beings as the Book of the Dead, and both claim to be inspired by higher spiritual power for the greater good of the soul. 3. Agriffinmom4, I like your analogy, but referring to the Book of the Dead as poison is ignorant. Its a spiritual book, a holy book of ancient beliefs that came long before Christianity. And check me on the facts, but Greek scholars and philosophers went to study at the Ancient temples of the Egyptians before Christianity as a religion was established.
