Just as an aside, the story about the witch of Endor calling up Samuel is consistent with the interpretation that the witch was a charlatan, without necessarily making the rationalistic claim that they all are.

This resolves certain contradictions in current Orthodoxy about the nature of the afterlife.

The flash of light you saw in the sky was not a UFO. Swamp gas from a weather balloon was trapped in a thermal pocket and reflected the light from Venus.

dunno if that matters so much anymore, at least in western societies. It's not even clear what western Christianity teaches except for some saccharine humanist generalizations.

You think that's so? I admit I am way on the outside looking in.

Some offer 72 virgins which is why men homos get killed.
