By E.C. McMullen Jr.
This writer's work was so profound, that many a modern day Televangelist is so befuddled, as to quote from this writer's works; believing it to be in their Bible! In fact, Dante's interpretation
of what the afterlife must look and feel like, not only contradicts the
Christian bible, but is widely held (by western
Christians who apparently don't even read their bible) as THE
actual view of what happens to a person after death. In essence, more
western Christians believe in Dante's version of the afterlife than they
believe in their Bible's vision (and they probably
never read Dante either!)! So Happy Birthday to -
