Believing afterlife as a fact??? Without including God..
Yes, you got it.
Its the same as believing existence of angels but rejecting devils/satan/demons.
Right! See how I do that? I've had experience with angels - never with 'dark things'. Maybe I'm charmed.
Its a belief of convenience that validates a certain position that one holds.
Same as any religion, political stance, philosophy, or worldview - if I don't "look" at demons/satan/devils, they don't exist! Quantum Theory, you
know. I've never been bothered by "demons" - although I have had my attention brought to the presence of discarnate spirits - ghosts. Others who
reside beyond the veil.
How do you explain afterlife and include evolution in it too?
Evolution hasn't got the silghtest thing to do with 'afterlife' - it has to do with offspring slowly acquiring/losing some traits.
If you can't...
But I can. And I just did.
...then the other options is that we are created and that brings God/Creator into
I'm not saying there is or is not "God/Creator", because I don't know... And in truth, neither do you. You "believe" there is. You don't "know."
If there is
a "creator" - then I'm quite content to consider the whole universe as a "perpetual motion machine" - - that God/Creator launched,
once, and it took off from there, in perpetuity - a self-sustaining system. (Actually, the universe is working toward an "end" as far as physicists
can tell SO FAR. We have no idea where we fit into it, but we're obviously not much of a "force to be reckoned with" in terms of the vast power of the
universe.) It's perfect. We haven't mastered building one yet, but it's been attempted for eons.
As Tesla said:
wiki Perpetual Motion
" One day man will connect his apparatus to the very wheelwork of the universe [...] and the very forces that motivate the planets in their orbits
and cause them to rotate will rotate his own machinery. ”
If you believe in karma then there has to be an outside higher intelligence that understands it and has designed it that way.
That's what sk0rp said - and I disagreed with him, too.
The Buddhists do just fine with karma/reincarnation without a "Creator". It just is
