    I know you don't see the relevance, Taz. That is obvious.

    The earth is the only planet people who claim to be reincarnated say they lived their past lives upon.

    If it is as you say, why wouldn't they discuss their past lives from all over the universe?

    How?

    By learning the difference between clean and unclean, what is holy and what is profane, and then being more discriminating about what thoughts, beliefs, ideas, opinions, etc., that you allow into your mind in the same way that you discriminate between good food and bad food to avoid getting sick.


    You wouldn't eat someone else's vomit, would you?

    Don't eat your own.

    So I already do that, and I'm a vegetarian to boot. Except that there is no such thing as holy, because nobody has ever proven god. So "holy" is a fictitious word. And then follow some random set of lifestyle rules. Then I see god?

    It's fascinating how many people claim to know the path to god. And yet we can't get any two of them to agree on it. If we were talking about anything except for magical bullshit, it would be obvious to everyone that they are all full of shit.

    If you grew up in a time and place where the majority of the people believed that God was edible on Sundays and you were the only person who said that that belief was bullshit you would seem to be the only one who was insane.

    In the same way the prophets appeared during times of profound and deeply disturbing societal insanity and said that statues aren't gods, sacrificing farm animals doesn't make a difference, mutilating weenies is bonkers, superstition is ignorance, etc, and were reviled as crazy, persecuted and killed.

    And yes,they reported more or less the same thing. Being visited by otherworldly life forms. and yes, insanity and hallucinations are a possibility but given the fact that the prophets were denouncing the insanity of their times they were most likely not insane, or at least less insane, which made them more reliable witnesses.

    If there were alien life forms trying to communicate with people who only used grunts and gestures and marks on paper to communicate how would they do it? Who would they visit? The people praying to statues or the one who rejects that as ignorant superstition?


    The prophets all reported being in altered states of consciousness when they received a highly sophisticated visual and auditory multi sensory communication, an otherworldly zip file, that requires a highly developed intelligence, a multi sensory perception to open.

    If you look for signs of superior intelligences in their writings, you will find it. If you are looking for craziness, thats all that you will see.
