The  OP talks about science achieving resurrections.  This Bible stuff strikes me as a hijack.  The question is what you would do if you could arrange the resurrection of your ancestors, not what your religion says.

OK can we not argue and turn this thread into another bashing of the "satanic world order"?

This seems like an interesting idea that really has nothing to do with any of that.

There is only ONE immortality = resurrection of the dead.

The Bible says those who are dead do nothing and know nothing.

The pagan belief in a disembodied "immortal soul" living on after death is false.

The Bible says the wages of sin is death... not eternal life in a Dante-type hell.


.
The Bible also says there are windows in the sky, it's wrong.

Sorry, but biblical resurrection is just as valid as this false pagan belief.

I'll leave you to your exercise in futility.


btw...

God and science are not mutually exclusive.

I've known quite a few scientists and all believed in a higher power.

Where does the Bible say this? God doesn't even know how the universe operates.

And how are they going to bring back those who were cremated? what about those who are now just bones? this is ridiculous!

In an ideal World a law would be passed were NO guns were allowed and all those out there destroyed, trouble is the law makers are not going to take a risk of trying to pass that without making sure they are armed first.

We are all information and it cannot be destroyed. Cremation is not the end of life. Death is not the end of life.

Uhm, yes, it is.

I wouldn't want to bring back my ancestors. Especially not those few who were in the SS. And I doubt I'd get akong with most of the others as well: They'd be from a completely different period with a completely different mindset. Wouldn't end too well, I believe.

What if your posterity has the save thoughts about you?

So one decides the question should be answered on who they would get along with, who might benefit them, who they deem as worthy contributions to the world, yet let us hope those in the future who do get to decide to bring us back have risen past these simple biases.

The real problem with resurrections, regardless of whether they are of the scientific or of the religious sort, is the continuity problem -- the new being thinks its a resurrected being because it has the same personality and memories, but is it really the same being?

Who is to say we have not already been resurrected, which solves the time problem, and we feel the exact same. When it comes to space, maybe there just is not enough space to host us all here in the now, but that too can be solved as we learn to better use the space we have.
