Nope. I sure as shit don't know, but I'd wager I've been considering it for a lot longer and more critically than you, bitch.

Do you think he meant the whole hole or just the whole of the ground? Consider

Thanks for adding the thread.

Are you talking about after being resurrected will those people retain the exact identity they had when they were living before they were resurrected? Because, I think that - and I can research this, 'cause I am not that familiar with the idea and could be wrong - but I think that unlikely to an extent. Many of those people will have gotten old, and will be young upon resurrection. I know this because sin causes the slow decay of death. The lifespan decreased exponentially after the flood, having to do with the water canopy being used to cause the flood.

However, I am pretty sure that there is scriptural support that we will recognize our loved ones during that time. That doesn't mean we will be exactly the same. That is, not necessarily so. What's an atheist like you so interested in such a possibility, anyway. Is it a joke I'm not aware of?

"Many of those people will have gotten old, and will be young upon resurrection. I know this because sin causes the slow decay of death. The lifespan decreased exponentially after the flood, having to do with the water canopy being used to cause the flood."

Ah! All is revealed! (Australian sarcasm)

All of our scientific knowledge shows that nothing in those two sentences can possibly be true.

Why do you believe such nonsense?

Because your scientific knowledge has failed me many times and the Bible never has. Your scientific knowledge can't explain why, if our cells keep renewing themselves, why we should die.

Because they weren't created...

Yes it does. You just don't know enough Biology and Genetics to understand why. Cells "renew", but not "perfectly". In fact each time they do renew, more genetic mistakes are compounded, and also the "non-perfect" replication is built in. Why do people get cancer, anyway ? The whole idea of looking at "life" from an individual's point of view is misguided ? It's not "about" individuals. It's about species. Death is a good thing, if specie survival, and adaptation is the goal. Individuals are supposed to die, in an Evolutionary system that works well.
This is like starting an education from Grade 1.
It's really getting old.
