...that is absurd, i.e. nutsy coocoo.
All living things have a natural mechanism embedded in their genes that makes them want to survive in order to perpetuate the species, even plants because they will grow toward the sunlight in an effort to survive if put in a dark place. Should we interpret that instinct as proof of eternal life for plants? No, that is absurd, i.e. nutsy coocoo. Then why is nature's survival instinct any different for humans? It's not--if you know evolution.
Nevertheless, it simply does not logically follow to say that the instinct to survive, found in all living things, is any kind of evidence or proof that eternal life awaits only the human species.
Indeed, all living things and beings demonstrate the same survival instinct.
That's a nutsy definition of "absurd" I appreciate tho that you at least gave it a try.
Also, it's wrong to assume that the survival instinct in all living beings doesn't lead to any conclusion about eternal life.
From the fact that you see everyone's life span come to an end, you conclude "All men are mortal," right? If this inductive reasoning is sound, then the deductive conclusion that the survival instinct must have its essential basis in the eternal principle of life is all the more sound.
I don't jump through Ersi hoops.
...the wild leap to immortality in some supernatural world does not follow and cannot be logically assumed.
Can you make a similar leap from the female instinct to protect their young, to an eternity of doing just that?
How about the instinct to eat, to eating forever or the instinct to procreate, to f*****g forever?
You are rejecting a sound reasoning process, hence defining yourself as irrational.
Parsley, Sage, Rosemary and Thyme?
Can understand that Belfrager as lots of statues are the same in your corner and theirs!
I love Buddhism, it has a nice sense of humor.
[I read a story in a recent issue (within a year or two) of the magazine Fantasy & Science Fiction involving the resurrection of Neanderthals... Does anyone else know it?}
At the reformation (especially here) we took out all the worshipping statues and got rid of 'em and made the places nice and simple with no distractions.
As I said, like the Talibans, IS and the sort are doing. You just arrived first than them but it was expectable, they are six hundred years later, the Prophet was born just at six hundred something, isn't it?
Pagan temples, sacred groves, etc.
