    I believe that it is easier for the most ancient Intelligence / Intelligences to create a literal Adam and Eve than it would be to make up a movie to be shown to Moses later on.


    More information related to this is becoming available:

    So you believe in metaphors by suggesting space aliens could easily create a literal adam and eve. You appear to be suggesting that we are alien space people's creation.

    As for afterlife, there is no "information" on it. There is only speculation and uproven declarative statements. But I get how bridging the gap between existence and non existence is fundamental to searching for a means to deal with one's own mortality.

    By "alien" / "Alien" I personally mean Extra-Dimensional...... as opposed to extra-terrestrial.

    I believe that the first and most ancient Intelligence began and "EVOLVED" in fundamental or nearly fundamental energy which I believe is somehow connected with possibly TWO fundamental energies...... Super Strings the foundation for LIGHT and Super Waves the foundation for SOUND / VIBRATION / music?!

    There are some potentially useful quotations from Theoretical Physics here:

    And I can't hardly tell you how encouraged I was by the results of this poll:


    Are we humans the most technologically advanced species in universe?

    So its still all about supernatural forces that have yet to be discovered in any measurable form.

    Its the height of human intellectual conceit to believe that we are the only intelligence in the universe, let alone its most advanced. We are rather a self centered species.

    Theoretical Physicists have done measurements that have some validity.

    I actually saw that book in a used book store last week and got it because
    it seems to me that his mom...... who he depends on because he is disabled.........

    ... got really, really, really angry that her ex-husband was making money off the book......

    ... so she gathered up a bunch of pastors who believe in Soul Sleep and they
    convinced the poor kid that he must have imagined his account.........

    .... because his mom..... is his mom....... and those guys could really quote the Bible....... so the poor kid
    could not imagine that the Bible was wrong........ but in actuality it was the way that those
    particular pastors understood many seemingly clear scriptures!!!!

    ......... After the twenty four minute mark in the near death experience account of
    Dean Braxton he talks about their being animals in heaven who were glad that
    he was there in heaven!

    This is verification for one important part of the Colton Burpo testimony of his
    brush with death.

    I couldn't vote in the poll. I watch very, very little network television programming, and, I have no idea who Colton Burpo is....

    So...people who develop hypothesis about guesses have done measurements of their imaginings that might possibly mean something of substance to people who already believe things based on misunderstandings of what they imagined? All because of made up stories of dimensions that no one can see or touch.....Neat.

    I have to admit that I am biased partly due to
    the astonishing insights that these near death experiencers come back with.

    The following explanation was very much in line with what I was hoping our Creator had planned for the long term for each of us.
