A lot of people seem to live their lives waiting for peace in the future. When someone dies they say an immortal soul lives the body and goes to heaven.
They cling to the belief as if it was the most important thing. Some die for it blowing themselves up in town markets. Why wait? Better get 'there' straight away.
Obviously the idea has more advertising potential than dry cleaning.
Is it not a factor of insanity to live all your life in shadow of a belief in something for which there is absolutely no evidence?
