I understand what you're saying, and it makes perfect sense. If I were not religious, I might share that same opinion, but I do believe in an afterlife. I do think there is a heaven and hell, so it's not difficult for me to think that someone might have went there, and came back.
Shrug. I understand and freely admit that my ideas are probably not in-sync with logic, and as such, not the opinion of many people here. I'm also not saying I'm right and you're wrong (that's the problem with so many religious people out there -- they seem intent on forcing what they believe on others). I'm only saying that I will not toss out his assertion just because it's not the most logical.
Faith is not proveable one way or another. It makes no difference to those that have it.
