    he will meet her the next perfect life and so her time here, though short and difficult, is nothing compared to the service of his faith which will allow them to rejoin in his faith's eternal paradise. It's very sad for her in this life though. And since we've yet to prove there is an afterlife of any sort (faith, belief, and wishful thinking aside), she's missing out on his love and attention here and now. He may also be avoiding the pain of eventually losing her by hiding in his campaign and his faith.

    No so disgusting as sad... very sad no matter how you slice it.

    •  We've actually proven that there is (0+ / 0-)

      no afterlife. Scientifically, consciousness is rooted (somehow) in the brain. When the brain dies, consciousness is forever lost. Any counter to this is rooted in mysticism, or in the least non-scientific wishful thinking.  

      •  Einstein... (1+ / 0-)

        ...believed in an afterlife.  He stated that energy can be neither created nor destroyed.  It can only change forms.

        •  No, he never said he believed in (2+ / 0-)

          an afterlife. Not in anything I've ever read. He believed in some supreme being. Possibly. He never went to any organized religious services, and certainly believed in no religion. If you think he believed in an afterlife, provide a link.

          And the conservation of energy existed before Einstein was even born, and like all physicists he subscribed to it. It has nothing to do with an afterlife, of course.

            don't believe in an afterlife. It would not have been part of his upbringing.

            I'm asking you to believe. Not in my ability to bring about real change in Washington ... *I'm asking you to believe in yours.* Barack Obama
