It might think of itself as the resurrected pre-mortem individual, but it would be wrong. </li><li>Consideration of arguments by <a name="99"></a><A HREF = "../../Authors/V/Author_Van Inwagen (Peter).htm">Peter Van Inwagen</A> in this respect. </li><li>This chapter is likely to be controversial, so needs to be very carefully argued, and factually correct concerning what is actually believed by intellectually-aware Christians and Muslims (unlike what seems to be the case with most swipes against religion). </li><li>Maybe I should also cover reincarnation. </li></ul><BR><hr><BR><u><b>Research Methodology</u></b><ul type="disc"><li>Follow <a name="1"></a><A HREF = "../Notes_0/Notes_6_41842933.htm">this Link</A><SUP>1</SUP> for a generic statement of how I intend to pursue each Chapter. </li><li>The method is broken down into 12, possibly iterative, stages. </li><li>Follow <a name="2"></a><A HREF = "../Notes_10/Notes_1024_42465972.htm">this Link</A><SUP>2</SUP> for my progress dashboard on these tasks. </li></ul> <BR><hr><BR><u><b>Chapter Introduction</u></b><ol type="1"><li>While I wish in this chapter to consider seriously the religious hope of resurrection, I do not want to get side-tracked onto matters of Scriptural exegesis, or into evidential matters of whether particular resurrections  specifically of Jesus  happened or not. In this regard, I m interested only in what they take resurrection to be, and whether they provide any detailed metaphysical account of how it is supposed to work. </li><li>As in the chapter on <a name="3"></a><A HREF = "../Notes_10/Notes_1022_42465972.htm">Thought Experiments</A><SUP>3</SUP>, this chapter is partly aimed at checking how (my version of) animalism copes with projected situations. As such, I may extend this to other posited versions of post-mortem survival, though most are ruled out by the essentially physical nature of the human person as proposed by animalism. </li><li>While not wanting to get too far off topic, especially at the end of the thesis, I want to consider some of the ethical consequences of adopting Animalism with  I presume  the lack of hope of post-mortem existence. Hence the reading material on death itself and on  matters of life and death . </li><li>Further text to be supplied. </li></ol><BR><HR><BR><u><b>Main Text</u></b><ol type="1"><li>To be supplied. </li></ol><BR><HR><BR><u><b><U><A HREF="#On-Page_Link_1023_4">Links to Books / Papers to be Addressed</A></U><SUB>4</SUB><a name="On-Page_Return_1023_4"></A></u></b><ol type="1"><li>In this Chapter I will consider the following papers or book chapters (together with some others referenced by these).
