@Germlat,
Whether the Bible is correct in establishing the identity of the first humans is a different argument.

Presumably, the title holder does.

@neologist,
Within 5 minutes of us English landing in the New World the savages were thieving from us, scalping us and killing us but we said "Enough!" and were soon running the show!
That's why yanks today speak english and are not still living in wigwams, painting their faces, doing wardances and making silly whooping noises..Smile
It's all in books like this one on my bookshelf-

@neologist,
I guess we differ in the way we accept information. So I'm confused...I'm not sure how you can know if Adam existed at all ,and yet you provide a precise date of when he lived. What about the human skeletal remains that exist which are older then 5,000 years?

@thus,
My definition of "we" depends on the context of the matter being discussed. I think there is a public self, a self-perceived self in terms of mind, a physical self...I think human individuality is a result of interlinked processes/nature and nurture. I'm not sure I understand your other questions.

We don't, even after we die. We reincarnate until our spirits are strong enough to conquer our minds and ascend into Heaven mind body and spirit.

U have the testimony of people who
have left their human bodies (like me) and returned,
some of whom had death experiences.

Interesting blind guess, MWal.

Why do you present it as though it is more than a blind guess?

@OmSigDAVID,
The thing with testimonies is that they are personal perceptions. People can convince themselves of just about anything. I knew a girl who managed to convince herself she wasn't pregnant ....until the baby was born and provided her with irrefutable evidence to the contrary.

Perceptions can spring upon u.
I hope that u have an out-of-body-experience, in good health.
I think that u 'll like it, and then u 'll know that conscious life
can exist separate from your human vehicle. Good luck.

@OmSigDAVID,
What made you sure you were really out-of-body as opposed to your mind
playing tricks on you?

This isn't to start an argument. I'm genuinely curious.

@Germlat,
That's only one type of 'mind over matter.' The majority of humans believe in one god or another - even when there's no evidence of one (or more). They believe their god created the heavens and the earth, but that's based on 'faith' only; it's not scientific.

Yes, out of body experience is the mind playing tricks on the individual who believes they saw their own body laying on their death bed.

Humans ability to 'see' things that doesn't exist is normal, but not factual.

Another number agreement mistake, ci.

How can you keep making these mistakes...and still claim that you are "above average" in English.
