The availability of variety of evidence concerning how the afterlife beliefs were practiced in ancient Egypt have succeeded in making many writers to think that the Egyptians originated and spread the afterlife beliefs around the world. However, evidence for the existence of the alleged founders or originators of the afterlife beliefs the Neanderthals have not been found in Egypt.
