Mindless Afterlife

Mindless Afterlife

A Poem by Joseph D. Smith

The Ancient Egyptians discarded the brain because they didn't know what it was for, and they buried their dead with their remains so that they can have an afterlife. No brain in the afterlife!

The Ancient Egyptians threw out the brain,
In the afterlife they felt no pain.
They didn't "think" it through!
No brain, no gain.

Joseph D. Smith
This is my attempt at painting a picture of how I view the Ancient Egyptian afterlife, since they threw out the brain, and now we know what it's for, so it must've been pretty mindless!
