The idea that sleeping souls made of dark matter and existing in the sleep dimension waiting for the attraction of newly bonded DNA to become the next host may not be so crazy! The possibility is not disproved by science as far as I am aware...and it may offer comfort to those that have a problem with the more outlandish claims of established religions.
The right to the possibility of eternal life should belong to all of us, not just the whacky fixed believers.
Bereavement can be filled with hope that the new life that the soul facilitates will be a happy one.(No fixed penalties or sneaky clauses built into the agreement)That's a religion for you!
The reason for the existance of live as we know it is to enhance the self awarenesss of the universe. Consciousness is everything. There, Sorted!
