    Does that mean you don't think you have a spirit? A soul? An intellect? Does that die when your physical body dies?

    No, I don't have a spirit. Why even ask that question after what I posted? A soul? other than to define my experiences as "soul" - no. Intellect? WTF does that even have to do with this? Intellect is in the brain, so yes, I have intellect. All my organs will cease to function in death.

    What exactly is your point?

    Re: Ghosts

    Good job life isn't black and white, a soul lives on. How many people after death remember the tradition of family/nurses/carers opening a window? That's an interesting one.

    I may not be back for a while I have a lot of research and note taking to do so I can throw information at people at random. I'm on my second A4 notebook this morning and off to buy a suitcase to cart it all around in.
    Gosh I hope I can find the right book at the right moment to give the right person the information

    Well, this thread has certainly gone south in a hurry.

    Re: Ghosts

    A discussion might have been nice.

    No one says you have to believe.

    You can come and state you don't believe, fine but why keep coming back ?

    No I won't have a go at Spot he made a point and he left within reason, he hasn't trolled the thread.

    There maybe some here who do believe who won't speak now.

    Twice now the thread has become about sex, I'm still trying to get my head round the first post where the ex wife's capabilities as a lover is in anyway shape or form relevant to ghosts.

    You couldn't make it up.

    Differing perspectives are only allowed one post and no follow-ups or responses?

    Spot's mildly introverted!

    I didn't say you should have a go at anyone, all I did was point out that your accusations of sarcasm were aimed at the wrong person.

    Not quite correct, BB. Sex was part of an explanation both times.

    I've already explained this to you. One more try: a very satisfying sexual relationship kept me from criticising or otherwise acting on the beliefs she had.

    You just did because you've misrepresented just about everything I posted.

    Cliches are not an effective form of argument unless acknowledged beforehand, and rarely then.

    Do you ever give up?

    22 posts in this thread, and I'm pretty sure I am not the only person who can see that all you have done is mocked.

    Over and out Ahso. Sleep well.

    As long as you require me to defend myself, I will!

    I've learned throughout the years that it's better to drip information in posts when possible, otherwise, people tend to lose track.

    Good night, sweet lady. I do mean that, BB.
