The foundation of the belief nurtured by the Bible is at the same time also the most difficult of everything that’s being asked of natural humans to believe: the concept of eternal life. How on earth is it possible that I can be born in the flesh, spend my life in the flesh, then one sad day die in the flesh like every other living thing around me, yet resurrect from death as if I just went to sleep but woke up again?
For God’s existence there is no empirical evidence, yet for the resurrection from natural death there is an abundance of it. That means that one doesn’t have to believe in God to belief in the resurrection.
One can be an atheist, and believe in the resurrection, because of the evidence all around us.
Believers don’t have patent rights on the resurrection.
Science can confirm that everything in the universe moves in circles. The Bigbang will eventually come to a Bigcrunch, which will start another Bigbang leading to another Bigcrunch… like an accordion worming out and back and out and back.
The year runs through its seasons of spring, summer, autumn and winter, but it doesn’t die there, it’s just a recess. Spring will announce a new circle of life again.
A caterpillar will hatch from a butterfly egg, live its caterpillar life and at the end of it spins itself into a cocoon grave, from which it will emerge as a breathtakingly beautiful butterfly.
And so the examples of a resurrection go on and on.
Mother Nature wants to teach us humans that she birthed and raised us, will take our bodies the full circle to be united with her in natural death again, but that there’s more to human life than what she could offer us.
Our life on earth is just a small step for man, but will we grow enough mentally to take that giant leap for mankind and embrace the resurrection?
