Sorry to hear about that, harmony.
The reason I started this thread is because of some flippant ideas that came into my head. I must have killed hundreds, maybe thousands of cockroaches, like most people. I squash about three a day, and usually say, "there ya go, ya bastard, one less". I can't help being flippant about this because I find the idea of resurrection a bit far fetched, like Truth Dancer.
I've also done a lot of study on near death experiences and the afterlife, and there seems to be persuasive evidence of the possibility
of an afterlife. But no where in those studies have I ever
come across the idea of resurrection, reincarnation yes. I must have read hundreds, if not over a thousand NDE accounts, and I haven't seen anything on resurrection. The resurrection of insects therefore makes no sense to me, which is why I was surprised to see a First Presidency Message from 1909 talking about the resurrection of tadpoles (see above). I have read NDE accounts of people seeing their departed dogs.
Anyway, for anyone interested in the concept of reincarnation, here is one link:http://www.zeitenschrift.net/news/sne-2 ... life.ihtml
It may not necessarily be reincarnation, it could be some kind of consciousness connection. If you have an explanation for it let me know. Here is another excerpt about the case:
Jim Tucker, a child psychiatrist and medical director of the Child and Family Psychiatric Clinic at the University of Virginia, is one of the few researchers to extensively study the phenomenon of children who seem to have memories of past lives.
He says James' case is very much like others he has studied.
"At the University of Virginia, we've studied over 2,500 cases of children who seem to talk about previous lives when they're little," Tucker said. "They start at 2 or 3, and by the time they're 6 or 7 they forget all about it and go on to live the rest of their lives."
