Judeo-Christian religions want us to “believe” that we have one life to live and then its off to heaven or hell for ETERNITY!
An interesting fantasy I’d say…. Let’s start with the timeline of infinity, and make it horizontal for simplicities sake (not going in all directions at once!) We as an incarnation step onto this timeline at a given point and have 30 seconds to 120 years to get this thing called life right, then we get to spend the rest of infinity / eternity in one place OR the other.
Now, what if I look at the timeline going backward the other way…. Spock would say that it is illogical that we did not exist there also. I have not met one Christian or person of another religious faith that could show me heaven or hell. All of these people say “believe“, “have faith“, and base their life decisions on this “belief” with no knowledge of what they are talking about.
How about Physics…. Matter cannot be created nor destroyed, simply transformed. If we are this immutable soul that the religions profess that we are, it sounds like we are constantly transforming. Seeing as how we are governed by the same laws of the universe that governs everything else – whether we like it or not, it looks like we’ll be back time and time again.
