Anyone have any ideas how this can ALL tie together in a nice neat package since they are so far extreme ends from each other? But I really do think they can just hurts the brain to figure out haha, need some in put here please.
I am not religous but I starred this post because it as at least allowing you to peek outside the box......
You are correct.....'Where would a god fit in all of this?'
Very beautiful question......
I am not a man of religious faith either although I do repsect that many people are and I do believe that THEY believe in God (or other respective diety).
Consequently I would like to address this with my own opinion (I apologise if this is off topic, but this bit is settign the stage so-to-speak) which, when it comes to unexplained happenings, people of faith often refer to them as 'miracles'. In life it is safe to say that 'anything is possible' and thus when it comes to God, anything is possible. Xynephadyn mentioned about talking to ghosts or spirits of people who died in car crashes etc suggesting that these 'stime slips' where people have lived when really they should have died, is not realistic.
However, I offer this suggestion (and please remember that this is coming from someone with no religion): what if these 'events' are acts of God / Miracles? For example, a time slip that potentially puts someones conciousness into a different timeline thereby saving their life could be because of the intervention of a higher power; ie it is not their time to go. Whereas the spirits that xynephadyn talked about are of those people whose 'fates' were not intervened in, because their desitinies were supposed to play out that way?
I have often heard people of faith talk about Gods big plan and how we are all in it, could these events just be examples of God exercising his 'omnipitence' to keep his plan on track?
Just an alternative view....
