Maybe I'm confused. The fear of death and the unknown is an old concept regarding the afterlife. The idea that the fear of pain after death (Paragraph 2) came before the religions and that caused the need for sacrifice myths seems kind of strange. I wish the writer had some links to back that up with. It doesn't really square with what I've read. Here's a short discussion of ancient religious beliefs.

Anybody else know anything about ancient cultures afterlife beliefs?
