I noticed on one of my favorite places to see how the secular world sees things spiritual, that death seems to be a favorite topic among some secular people. Especially if those are people who write books, produce movies, or develop other exercises for otherwise idle minds. But it is not so popular among those actively involved in religion- of any denomination or tradition.
Part of the reason probably is the combination of how much we don't know, how much some folks just conjecture, the shallowness of the sayings of what some call "bumper-sticker theology", and the fact that those who are theologians who dare say something are so often trounced upon by their peers.
It's obvious what we need to seek: better answers for the questions we've always had. Where do we find them?
