Belief in the Immortality of the Human Soul and a Future Life

  • Louis Manyeli


The paper is a reflection on ancient Basotho’s conception of death. For ancient Basotho, death pertains to animals and other animate things, not humans. They believe in a future life. It is argued that it is unfair to regard a belief on the resurrection as meaningless simply because it does not pass either the verifiability criterion or cannot be subjected to scientific experimentation.
