No wonder, for even Satan disguises himself as an angel of light.
Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it.
And thou shalt not let any of thy seed pass through [the fire] to Molech, neither shalt thou profane the name of thy God: I [am] the LORD.
And they built the high places of Baal, which are in the valley of the son of Hinnom, to cause their sons and their daughters to pass through the fire unto Molech; which I commanded them not, neither came it into my mind, that they should do this abomination, to cause Judah to sin.

I firmly believe we are approaching the time when science will uncover irrefutable evidence of the soul and the hologram created in which the soul gathers new experience of the Creator's universe.
IF you only have one chance, its more incentive to listen to the ones promoting the concept of eternal life, which of course the priests of the church held the keys to...
I don't know about reincarnation. It sounds nice in theory but in practice it is what has lead to things like caste systems. Look to cultures that believe in reincarnation and you will not find much compassion. That poor suffering soul deserves their suffering due to some unknowable evil in a past life is a great excuse to be apathetic.

Thanks for your reply.
Yes, children and wounded-souls love rocks. It's a sense of going-back-to-your-roots, to relearn or do a reset, to remember your real roots - and hopefully get it right this time. Rocks also contain a Godly energy, but don't have an intellect or emotions. They are connected to God but protected from pain, remorse and horrible memories.
Think of geologists and "rock hounds." Not exactly equated with spirituality, they still study and crave to learn about a substance that is at the root of all of living things. And, like the yin-yang balance of the entire cosmos, there are rocks that are more positive or more negative in original composition.
Think of all the ancient civilizations that built or carved with granite - that has embedded crystals. The interior of the largest chamber in the largest pyramid in Egypt is lined with granite. Giving birth to the theory that it was really a chamber for power-creation. Or how some rocks can merge with human misery, like black obsidian called "Apache Tears" in the Old West.
