Brad: Actually, immortality is never a possibility.
So says entropy, as our surrounding universe spirals into heat death. But hey, even if you can't "actually" have immortality, Brad, surely we might yet become "effectively" immortal? A thousand years? A million, perhaps? I don't think there's any theoretical reason a human couldn't survive to see the end of our universe?
Would I want to? You bet!
Arnold: Immortality is impossible with man;
But, all things are possible with God.
I would argue that point, Arnold, but that would be fodder for another thread. One perhaps specifically addressing religion (or, even, specifically Christianity, assuming you were referencing that particular god)?
Not all philosophy threads (and especially those bumped after 21 months?) need to become religious discussions, guys. If you want to talk about God, feel free to start a thread about God. While I know it's certainly possible to hi-jack every thread, as pretty much everything can be related to religion, I don't think it's really necessary. There should, I hope, be enough threads directly addressing religion to keep y'all busy?
Thanks for understanding.
