: Keeper: I'm in total agreement where evolution is concerned. In fact, I believe that the idea of evolution cannotes progress and is the most meaningful concept to come out of science. So when the fundamentalists attack evolution they are in essence trying to strip science of its meaning. : I take the concept, however, into the realm of the supernatural by combining it with the concept of reincarnation or transmigration as it's called in Judaism. This allows for the evolution of the soul. But the evolution of souls does not stop with humans. I do not think we die and go to heaven and become forever the same. I think the cyclic process of birth and death continues in the supernatural realm except that we souls, and hopefully our consciousness, just cycles in higher planes, forever becoming more perfect until we either feed into the godhead as the Buddhists seem to think or become gods ourselves, perhaps the gods of a new universe. : So the holistic process is just for god to make more of him/herself. Earth is a farm. God is the farmer using evolution to grow souls. Once self-consciousness is developed, the crop can be harvested, hopefully one at a time rather than all at once as some prophecies foretell. But the cultivation does not stop on the physical level. Human souls like catepellars become angels and eventually become gods. : Our species can only be in danger if this system breaks down. Then we may all be harvested. : Regards, : Richard David : PS: My understanding is that the idea of reincarnation was abolished from Christianity by Emperor Constantine because if his subjects thought that they would be given many chances to attain heaven, they would be much more difficult for the Roman authorities to control. Not going to heaven has been used as a threat by the church ever since. :::::::::::::::::: Well said my friend. Ditto from me on this one.

I once had an article published on Agnosticism, (tho I don't claim to be one), and it was rebutted by a Christian reader who said I would rot in Hell alongside Nietsze. I thanked him for the compliment and assured him that to me it would be preferable to what his religion was touting as Heaven.
