No wonder so many refuse to believe in God and eternal life. There is no evidence that we are not spirits who continue to exist after the death of our bodies. No evidence that we are more than atoms either. When I say no evidence, I mean we can assume either position and use experience or observation to support it. Either way it is according to what we want to believe, not some objective truth. Both views are faith based in some version of reality. Can either one claim higher ground? Haven’t both “seen the light”?
So we may go on arguing from our logical and sensible points of view. Each side protecting what gives comfort from the other that disturbs it. I guess that one of the two views is correct. Can both be? Is there a portion of human beings who will simply dissipate at death and a portion who will transmigrate as separate spirits to a new body and new life forever? Hmmm.
And each will spend at least a little time here wondering if he or she is actually in the other category.
