I just thought about something and thought I'd post my question here. This is the best place to post questions and/ or theories and get feedback.
Here it is: There are more than 7million people on Earth right now. I believe that spirits live in the atmosphere; namely the Ionisphere but
that''s another thread as to why I believe that.
If my theory is true then how many people can be born until all if the spirits are used up? What happens once all of them are used; is this when the
Earth will "reset" itself? Which spirits are still waiting up there?
What does ATS think about this?
I assume you mean 7 Billion. The answer to this is found in the Book of Esdras II. I recently went through the Epistle of Barnabas in a thread
series with commentary. I will be doing the same with Esdras II in the near future.
 And he said unto me, I will liken my judgment unto a ring: like as there is no slackness of the last, even so there is no swiftness of the
 So I answered and said, Couldest thou not make those that have been made, and be now, and that are for to come, at once; that thou mightest shew
thy judgment the sooner?
 Then answered he me, and said, The creature may not haste above the maker; neither may the world hold them at once that shall be created
 And I said, As thou hast said unto thy servant, that thou, which givest life to all, hast given life at once to the creature that thou hast
created, and the creature bare it: even so it might now also bear them that now be present at once.
 And he said unto me, Ask the womb of a woman, and say unto her, If thou bringest forth children, why dost thou it not together, but one after
another? pray her therefore to bring forth ten children at once.
 And I said, She cannot: but must do it by distance of time.
 Then said he unto me, Even so have I given the womb of the earth to those that be sown in it in their times.
 For like as a young child may not bring forth the things that belong to the aged, even so have I disposed the world which I created.
 And I asked, and said, Seeing thou hast now given me the way, I will proceed to speak before thee: for our mother, of whom thou hast told me that
she is young, draweth now nigh unto age.
 He answered me, and said, Ask a woman that beareth children, and she shall tell thee.
 Say unto her, Wherefore are unto they whom thou hast now brought forth like those that were before, but less of stature?
 And she shall answer thee, They that be born in the the strength of youth are of one fashion, and they that are born in the time of age, when the
womb faileth, are otherwise.
 Consider thou therefore also, how that ye are less of stature than those that were before you.
 And so are they that come after you less than ye, as the creatures which now begin to be old, and have passed over the strength of youth.
 Then said I, Lord, I beseech thee, if I have found favour in thy sight, shew thy servant by whom thou visitest thy creature.
 And he said unto me, In the beginning, when the earth was made, before the borders of the world stood, or ever the winds blew,
 Before it thundered and lightened, or ever the foundations of paradise were laid,
 Before the fair flowers were seen, or ever the moveable powers were established, before the innumerable multitude of angels were gathered
 Or ever the heights of the air were lifted up, before the measures of the firmament were named, or ever the chimneys in Sion were hot,
 And ere the present years were sought out, and or ever the inventions of them that now sin were turned, before they were sealed that have gathered
faith for a treasure:
 Then did I consider these things, and they all were made through me alone, and through none other: by me also they shall be ended, and by none
 Then answered I and said, What shall be the parting asunder of the times? or when shall be the end of the first, and the beginning of it that
 And he said unto me, From Abraham unto Isaac, when Jacob and Esau were born of him, Jacob's hand held first the heel of Esau.
 For Esau is the end of the world, and Jacob is the beginning of it that followeth.
 The hand of man is betwixt the heel and the hand: other question, Esdras, ask thou not.
