Re: Kaitlyn
I agree with your point on how the two civilizations differ. They both used gods to legitimize their rulers, but this was displayed differently. Why do you think that this emphasis on the afterlife was displayed so much in Egypt, but not as much in Mesopotamia? Perhaps they viewed afterlife as the purest way to connect with their gods, as it was viewed as the only way to return to them.
