Different Beliefs and Values My beliefs are very different form those of the ancient Egyptian culture The purpose of this paper is not to belittle the beliefs of this culture But to state my opinion on this topic and to discuss the differences First I would like to start off with the Egyptian view on a heavy heart The Egyptian culture thought that when they died that there heart would be weighed They believed that for every good deed that you ever had done your heart would gain weight And for every bad deed you have ever had committed that your heart would lose weight Thus it was better to have a heavy heart than to have a light at the end of your life Before they were to be let into the afterlife there heart would have to be weighed If their heart was to light they were unable to proceed to the afterlife I on the other hand always believe that a heavy heart would be a bad thing I have always looked at a heavy heart as a guilty conscience The more bad deeds that you have done the more your heart weighs you down making you feel guilty And to have a light heart would mean that you have nothing guilty on your conscience weighing you down to feel bad about Though two totally opposite opinions I can see why the Egyptians would of thought the way that they do Second I would like to discuss the difference between my religion being a catholic and there religion worshipping the sun god They saw there pharaoh as the living representative of the sun god When the pharaoh died he would join up with the sun god to govern Egypt form the inside They saw their afterlife as physical place were they would need tools valuables and personal items form this life on earth
