Great. Yes, death makes life prescious, I'm with the atheist's there, but where we diverge is in my undersanding that our life, and death, resides
even still in a further realm of an unknown uknown, or something we cannot know, but that's still "there" somewhere... materialist monism is dead
in other words. We are not mere "things", and we know that, or most of us do, those willing to look within. There's still something eternal INSIDE,
and what resides outside, or outside the boundary of death, we cannot say, thank God.
"No eye has seen, no ear heard, and no mind of man has concieved - what God has in store for the faithful."
There's still stuff in store I am certain of it, and all indication indicates that it's there somewhere, both innerant and transcendant, and me I'm
just glad I do not know what it is, so that if there IS anything there in the realm of the unkown unkown, it might come as a very pleasant surprise.
So you don't need to write it off so fast, this notion of eternal life. It's available for those who believe and recieve, death cannot have the last
word, since death cannot swallow up our life within itself, life and the universe does not appear to work that way, there's always something more,
but something which we could not imagine even if we tried.
See it all depends on where you think all the information is stored, in the scull alone (an old, outdated notion held tight by atheists), or in the
universe itself, as some sort of VALIS (vast active living information system), which would make me "Horselover Fat"!
