Incorrect. In a realm where time does not exist, there are souls and potential souls that are as real as the extant ones. This means that there are an infint amount of them.<br />
Also, as time is multidimentional, and souls live in each dimension - each one connected to the probable ones before and after - you are not "a" soul, but rather, a collection of them and in another context all of them.<br />
the idea of one soul - one body - in a tiny little universe will be seen as an absurd belief system by your grandchildren. They will have learned about science by then
wrong the soul is immortal so it is infinite
the soul is infinite the body is finite so by nature after one body dies the soul needs a new vessel to live inside
every soul was already made but when the soul is born into a vessel they have no recolection
or you can look at it a different way that since god created life death the soul energy space time all of that he could create new souls whenever he wanted
At some point, we have to accept the reality of our own intellectual limitations. There are far more things beyond our understanding than within it. To think otherwise is presumptuous, and flies in the face of a maturing sense of our limited place in the spiritual cosmos.
The best way I can describe my own concept of it as like buckets of water constantly being drawn and dumped back into a pool.
Well just as with water, it doesn't maintain its form or content after it's dumped back in (at least according to my working theory). So there is no meeting past friends and loved ones in the afterlife. No heaven or hell at least the way most people think of it.There is no reincarnation, because it's all just water. It's like just becoming once again part of a whole from whence we all came.
No a God could churn them out at will.
the more there are of anything, the less they're worth.
There was a movie done once that touched on this. It had.. a Hall of Souls.. in it
Yep, I agree. And only God knows that number.
I do believe it's the accountants that keep track of numbers. They go to heaven too, right?
