    Only a used car sale person could came up with such a neat solution to reincarnation - Dan and Juke becoming the new bratwursts for the ladies on a truck stop?

    "I will not die an unlived life. I will not live in fear of falling or catching fire. I choose to inhabit my days, to allow my living to open me, to make me less afraid, more accessible, to loosen my heart until it becomes a wing, a torch, a promise. I choose to risk my significance; to live so that which comes to me as seed goes to the next as blossom and that which comes to me as blossom, goes on as fruit."

    Anything is neater than what I've seen here. Believing that a tornado blowing through a junk yard and assembling a fighter jet appears more plausible than someone groundlessly telling me that there is a chance that I may come back as a howler monkey and engage in excrement throwing contests.

    Thanks for the clarification, WilliamCraig. I am unfamiliar with the definition of sin outside of religious context.

    I beg to differ. In your example, the guy has not made claims as to the accuracy of his subjective personal experiences.

    Merely describing an experience does not require reason. Drawing conclusions based on that experience does.
