Haha! Somebody else doing this exam! So few people seem to do it. Also, I'm sorry that nobody else replied until now...but you need religious and secular views on all things mentioned; the four topics we've been taught (and I believe tht titles that might be in the exam are: What is the nature and value of human life, eschatology and apocalyptic teachings, beliefs about death and beyond and beliefs about the importance of the present life and the afterlife. We were taught them separately because our teacher is one of those really organised, box-y teachers (though also really really good), but they all interlink, which is probably why your teacher's taught it all jumbled up.
We do secular and religious views for everything, as I believe these could come up for any of the topics, though I'm not sure, and this is how it's all structured in my folder and mind.
For secular eschatological views, that was the last thing we finished, so I can tell you all about that!
Secular ideas for eschatology we learned are:
*The Big Crunch
*Meteor hitting the earth
For secular apocalyptic ideas, we looked at:
*Climate change as a new religion
*(And we sort of looked at Nitzche)
However, these are things that your teacher decides to teach you so please do not panic
if you don't have the same as me! Although, if you don't know about this then please do let me know! I'm obviously not a teacher or anything, but if you don't have it then I'd be more than happy to share what I have got with you, ie. detail, not just a load of words in a list, but i didn't want to type out stuff I didn't have to :L
I also have loads of stuff on secular views on the afterlife if you still need that?
Are you doing OT as well? The exile, law and wisdom, etc.?
Have you started revision yet?? How's the course going in general?
I'm just so excited to find somebody outside of my class doing this! :L
