Does life after death necessarily involve a creator god?
'God' is a word that has soooo many meanings. In our modern (and declining) society, it is often as hated as it is loved... which is odd because words
really can't either hurt us or do us much good by themselves, lol.
First of all, gather the image of the universe around us. Then, using Carl Sagan's voice, apply the words 'billions and billions' to pretty much
define everything we still do not know about that universe. Now, here we are, tiny specks on a little blue speck around a dot of light on the edge of
a galaxy surrounded by untold numbers of other galaxies loaded with untold stars with little specks and perhaps, covered in even tinier specks... like
Once you get a good grasp on that, you either fool yourself into believing that we are the know-all and end-all species and that there is nothing out
there we haven't already discovered or even imagined... or there's possibly something else.
So, first of all, is there a 'creator'? You can call him/her 'God' if you like, or an advanced alien critter or even perhaps just the greatest
scientist in the universe. No matter because here again, words can't hurt or help you unless you place your entire belief upon a few letters.
Now then, since you are sure that when this physical journey comes to an end, there is something more... does it really matter what you call that
which awaits? maybe... just maybe, it would be better to seek its nature rather than just its name?
