Star and Flag, sled!
Your thread is not dead yet...and welcome to the group -- we are several here on ATS, speaking out about these things.
There are many of us here (on ATS and on the Earth) doing what you are doing, i.e., attempting to lift the truth up out of the muck, and to help
people see. There are also people here (on ATS and on the Earth) who will refuse to hear, or to read anything of depth and substance (e.g., the very
first response you received...laziness.) Some people aren't here (on ATS) to learn, but some are. ALL people are on Earth to learn and/or to teach.
I too have considered the idea that some souls are here to reincarnate, and may continue to reincarnate until they "get right"
I think you're onto something and we're moving one step closer to the real truth of the afterlife, heaven, reincarnation, etc.
Iason, that is close...but nearly all
souls are here to "get it right" -- the only exceptions being the very, very few who already "got it" and
CHOSE to come back, and those are the masters of many different times and places and cultures. Jesus, I believe at this juncture, was born
perfected....as an example of the finished product. John the Baptist (Elijah) chose to return, but was not Jesus' equivalent. He was one who had
achieved perfection through work and lifetimes.
Autowrench and I also have very similar thinking on several things. (haiya, auto
I am considering the conceptions of Jesus and John both, as to whether they were begotten by spiritual entities (angels), or if perhaps they were
extra-terrestrial ..or extra-dimensional... "offspring" crossed with human DNA. There are just too many similar symbols, and too much happening all
over the planet several thousand years ago...
for example....the idea of farming... of domesticating animals...of wheels...of crops...all developed in various cultures on various continents among
various cultures WITH NO KNOWLEDGE of the others doing so.
How can that be? How did man suddenly go from hunting/gathering to sedentary farmers? All at once...and build pyramids all over the planet...and
develop writing and math....and carve space-craft into their monuments...????
These ideas are considered fantastical and bizarro, and some think it's "new age BS hippie crap." We are sometimes called "fringe loonies" or
"anti-Christs" as well as "bats**t crazy"... Not true. Intelligent, curious, determined to find out for ourselves and not just accept spoon-fed
I don't believe Jesus died on the cross; I believe he survived the crucifixion and fled to the East, to where he was safe with the Essenes once again,
who were his "community" before his ministry, and who worked out with Pilate to get him down from the cross before he died and then nursed him back to
Some of us likewise are here (on ATS and on Earth) to help, to teach, to suggest, but most importantly to discuss
. My journey has been (in many
ways) similar to yours...and my personal truth is becoming more solid every day that I live, and I have been helped greatly here on ATS. I also read
incessantly, have absorbed loads of books, articles, theses, studies, etc, and also watched documentaries regarding these issues....I am still
learning, and expect to be for eons to come...in one realm or another.
Welcome, kindred soul, to 'our' tiny corner of the ATS universe. Look forward to discussing more with you....these are some of the thoughts I had to
points you made, and I am curious to learn more about your thoughts...but today I am weary and going to rest my brain in solitude out of doors in my
garden. (I apologize if this post seems fractured...as I said, I'm weary)
(A kiss of the sun for pardon
The song of the birds for mirth
One is nearer God's heart in a garden
Than anywhere else on earth.)
Still, I would invite you to read my post history in the forum here and in the Conspiracies in Religion and Psychology Philosophy and Metaphysics
forums as well, if you'd like some further insight into my thinking and journey so far.
