>I think you or somebody said that they get to heaven faster without so much technology.<

Yes. My point was that without technology the average life expectancy would drop back to 40 years or so. So, you die earlier. Since I don't believe in heaven, I don't really think there is any gain to dieing early.

>is the best insurance for not having to come back again to make up for them.<

Since I don't believe in reincarnation or karma either, this doesn't really mean anything to me.

>So technology delays your trip to heaven, but is likely to increase the chances of your staying there, if that is your objective.<

Assuming there IS a heaven and reincarnation.

>Many of us chose to come back because this is where the action is.<

If my bet is right, this is the ONLY place where there is any action.

You say "chose" to come back? You mean you were here before? How do you know that?

Jim
