I think there are many afterlives and many lives we have lived before this one.


All are one. The killer and the killed. The rapist and the victim. The mother and the father and the child. What you do to the least of your brethren you are doing unto God, you are doing unto yourself. Think we are all connected.

Democrats haven't been this upset since the republicans took away their slaves.

Consciousness and energy are different things.
Okay - where is consciousness seated in the body - what part of the brain will I find it in if I dig with a spoon?

You can parse all ya want, but when that "consciousness" (energy, spirit, soul) leaves the body, it's meat. What leaves it - choose a name that warms your cockles - IS NOT MEAT.


consciousness is an emergent property. This is like asking what part of a piano a chopin nocturne is stored.

Im sure you dont recall any memories before your birth. Thats because your consciousness did not exist yet. I dont see why it seems to be difficult for you to imagine a state that you have already basically 'experienced'.



I recall having memories before my birth but they have faded over the years. I also have had experiences with prophetic dreams. Dreams where I am doing something mundane with people I would not meet for years later in an unfamiliar setting.

The cowardly Indago has no idea how to prove evolution failing 5 scientific laws is false. Instead he drags in red herrings and other fallacious arguments!! Also using Alinsky methods, demonizing the opposition and never discuss the issue since it humanizes the opposition. I have challenged him with this several times in the past and he tries to claim I changed the subject!!!

It is obvious to the casual observer that Indago is a failure at discussing evolution and scientific laws!! He keeps using fallacious arguments. For example his last sentence is an obvious ad hominem attack!!! Making the discussion rather insane!!



We are in a created universe. Lets not pretend that the concept of a God does not break our understanding of the laws of physics. Remove the log from your eye before complaining about the speck in your brothers.
