Also, in the book of Isaiah...Old Testament... (don't know which
chapter)...Isaiah is talking about a new heaven (sky), and new Earth
where men will live as long as trees and even sinners will live to
100...or something like that.  Not that I believe everything in the
Bible, but some stuff in it make for interesting
discussion...definately reincarnation is mentioned like you stated.

Also what some Christians refer to as the rapture in the last
days...what is meant by last days is last days in the fact that there
is an end to time and elightenment....

its kinda funny if you like sexual humor:

"There will be two men lying in one bed, one will be taken one will be
left behind"

"There will be two women grinding in the field, one will be taken and
one will be left behind"


Don't know the chapters, but its pretty much right on.

Now what he is refering to here isn't some alien type rapture that
most Christians think of.  It is enlightenment...the old self dies
(left behind) and the True Self awakens (taken)

Many religious folk will argue against this...but this is what he
(Jesus) is saying.  You could ask why does Jesus use two people in
these parables and not 3,4,5 or even 10?  The answer is because there
is no rapture and the 2 people that he is refering to is actually just
one person (the false ego, and True Self)
