Beliefs in an Afterlife

Post  Samuel Hebert on Sun Sep 18, 2011 10:36 pm

The Egyptians believed that they had to pass a certain test to win eternal life. According to the Egyptian believe that after dead their soul would be ferried across the lake of fire and into the hall of Osiris. Osiris would weigh the persons heart and see if this heart would have value. If the heart wouldn't have value it would be feed to the crocodiles. Worthy souls would enter the happy field of food. where they would have eternal life. To learn how to survive the underworld they would read book containing different spell, formulas and charms.
Egyptians believed that the afterlife would be pretty much like Earth. When they buried somebody, they buried that person with all his good that would be needed for eternity. Mummification was a skill perfected by the Egyptians. This process was to conserve dead bodies. A person that extracted must of the internal organs like the brain were recognized as embalmers.

Ok sammies paper is great but he i could ad that he forgot to put the steps of the way you won eternal life, for example first thing you had to do was you had to make a discussion about all the good deeds you did in your ife to allathe gods in abig hall then the goddess ma'at took you to a room took you heart and weihged it with a feater, if your heart was ligher than the feather horus too you to osiris to give you a final judgment, but if your heart was heavuer the god ammut would suddenly appear and eat your heart and soul, and that is were you woud be for all eternaty.
