Non-human animals also dream, but I doubt that "for instance" monkeys dream of going to a monkey heaven, where only their type of monkeys will be rewarded with eternal bliss and other types of monkeys will spend eternity in hell.<quoted text>
June, I sure agree with you. Like - how can ANYONE claim to know what, if anything at all, occurs to any individual after death? It's 100% speculation, since not one person ever died and came back to tell of any "after death" tales. And the main reason I think it's been made up is because humans are so self-absorbed and convinced that they're so damn important they simply cannot return to nothingness like they were before birth. We refuse to believe we are no more important than a blade of grass.
I suggest that only humans are that arrogant. And why people believe they "should" be rewarded for such arrogance is beyond me.
If I was in charge up there in the sky, those that presume they are at the top of my list would find their selves at the bottom, as I would remind them who really IS in charge of the SHOW!
