Examining Death, Identity, and Resurrection

"How Do We Survive Our Death," a conference exploring personal identity and resurrection, begins today at the University of Innsbruck in Austria. The aim of the conference, according to its Web site, is "to clarify the presuppositions of the belief in life after death: What of our earthly existence continues to live? Which features of the human person are indispensable for surviving death? How can we talk about personal identity on the evidence of death? What does resurrection of the person mean?"
The international conference will host many speakers from the United States, and those familiar with the field of science and religion will recognize a number of the names, including Ted Peters, Robert Russell, and Dean Zimmerman. The conference runs through Friday.
