Concepts of God (The nature of a \'Creator\')

Dhw: So there I am, stuck with the usual chicken and egg dilemma - in this case, which came first: the bacterium me or the intelligence me? (A question specially for you, David! ";-)" ) Could the one have come into existence without the other?

“Endless”, looking forward. My attitude is hardening. The challenge could only relate to life after the beginning of life on Earth, unless you can refer me to psychic experiences of lives before then. Phew! As for cracks…well, when Planet Earth dies, reincarnation may have to come to an end, which could be a problem for our eastern friends if they haven't yet reached closure of the recycling process. But maybe we'll have found another habitable planet by then. And when the universe dies…? Well, I'm not going to lose any sleep over that particular crack.

As you know, I think there is a definite break in the continuum of evolution when human consciousness appeared. Bacterium cellular you is still present in your body, the part of which runs on autopilot, that is, all but three pounds of brain. As for reincarnation, if it exists, it is a property of human consciousness, and certainly not a part of an animal's conscious state.
