I'd like to get some thoughts on the question of soul, or personality, survival beyond bodily death. It's a subject that I have had an interest in
from a very young age, when I was a card carrying Christian.
As I moved away from religious faith, however, I was left only with a question. I then began to devour any information I could on the subject of . .
. Why are we here? . . . Is there a life after death? . . . Is there a God? . . . Is there a purpose?
In the end, I think there is simply so much misinformation and disinformation that it is hard to draw good conclusions. On the other hand, I think
there is a lot of GOOD information that but that often this information contradicts data coming from other disciplines (i.e. information gathered from
studying NDEs may conflict with information gathered from past-life regression studies).
To get a full picture, we have to look at so many things:
*Information gathered from othe sources, such as ouija boards, etc.
And the list goes on. No stone can be left unturned. But how do we separate the chaff from the wheat? How do we arrive at meaningful, testable
conclusions? What is to be trusted and what is not? And why are are there so many contradictions within the data gathered thus far?
I would be interested to hear all thoughts on this subject.
