    I'm feeling more confident for philosophy. The questions are so open ended it's more like "anything goes" and there's so much you can put in. I need a B in this so hopefully philosophy will go well

    How are you feeling for it?
    im feeling okay not to stressed because we have a week but hopefully the questions are right.

    I'm also doing religious experiences, just read around and ensure you have enough depth for the answers. I'm told to write 5-7 sides for the 45 marker and 2-4 sides for the 30 marker! That's a lot of writing and a lot if depth and detail!!

    Is anyone doing Religious Fundamentalism that can give me any advice on how to structure the 30 markers? Is it like Ethics where you give arguments (F, A, F, A, Conclusion)? If anyone has any simple revision notes or material/practise answers that they've done and don't mind sharing I will be SO grateful.

    We've learnt a lot and I'm struggling to retain the information!

    I have this too, it seems good but it's not vital. Other resources and notes are more concise.

    You seem to be doing similar topics to me. Are you focusing on the more general overview questions or the influence on religion questions? Or both?

    Im doing this topic too. With the present life affecting life after death you could write about Christianity and how lives are judged, then humans sent to heaven or hell, and also Buddhism ... With the idea of a persons karma affecting their rebirth. Then there's the secular view that if there is no life after death then we don't need to behave well in this life. Just think of the different ideas about life after death, and how these affect people lives now. Hope that helps a bit!

    Also if you're talking about Christianity talk about The Parable of the Sheep and Goats.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Sheep_and_the_Goats

    It's about the importance of acts in the present life and how they affect judgement day.

    I think present life and eschatology will come up, but I really don't think you should revise only two... that's a huge gamble
    have you got any topics to revise for importance of present life? I really have no idea what I'd answer!

    If we're talking about the importance of the present life do we talk about funeral practices? Technically they happen after death but they happen to the body which is part of the present life? Some of it seems relevant but I don't want to waste time putting them in an essay if it's pointless

    Can anyone tell me is there is a difference between a foundational experience and a revelation experience?
    I have looked for ages for info on revelation's but have hardly found anything and most of the foundational experience examples are considered revelations also...

    Are they the same?
    Struggling with this topic
    Also, does anyone have any idea on what is likely to come up?

    I've not seen anything within my Religious Experience sources explicitly referring to foundational experience, but a lot of weight goes into revelation experience.

    I'm doing the Section A : Life Death and Beyond topic.
    I've been looking at past exam papers (and I only found 3:K:)
    and I was stumped on how I could answer a 30 mark question from the 2012 paper.
    The question is:
    'The purpose of life is to prepare for death'
    Assess this view.


    Now i've been taught to include Christianity and Sikhism mainly for the religious perspective for the exam but I wouldn't know what to exactly write..
    We've also been taught on Plato and his dualist view, Richard Dawkins (secular philosopher), Bertrand Russell, Descartes etc. but I'm stuck

    Dude this is a great question with the potential for a really enriched response!

    The question is basically asking what the importance of present life is, and for those who are religious, it basically is in preparation for death as life is
    used as a vehicle towards your fate in death. So if you agreed with the view you would talk about how the purpose of life IS for death, such as with Christianity, Islam, and Buddhists seeing that our present life is important in determining our fate after we die.

    Secularists might argue that nothing happens after you die (Humanists) and that life isn't for preparing for death because we should enjoy the present.

    What you would do is chose which side you agree on and use the religions to either argue or counter argue your points
