Agnosticism, After life, and my pet Cat.
November 28, 2009 1 Comment
To clearly understand my agnostic view point on death, one must understand that some questions and beliefs have different level of importances.
Many Quantum Mathematicians have posed mathematical possibilities
of parallel universes, universe with different rules than our universe, even a “multi-verse“.
There is little empirical proof in our living world or close proximities in the universe, that other universes truly exist…
…not enough to top all reasonable doubt.
Just the same, not enough empirical evidence to dismiss other universes outside our own. So it remains a mathematical possibility.
with that said, I don’t know if parallel universes or a multi-verse exist.
Do I need to proclaim one of the statements….
- I actively believe in a multi-verse!
- I actively do not believe in a muliti-verse!.
Well if my career was astrophysics whether I believe or not, maybe important.
For the curiosity’s sake, the possibility is worth investigating.
However, in my life, my world that I live in, my reality.. its not important or relevant as other belief statements…..
It is more important just to be able to say “I don’t know“.
Same goes for other supernatural questions.. As an agnostic
I do not know if consciousness leaves to another supernatural place after death. I do not know what happens after existence.
For me, it is not as important as questions pertaining to this life or existence.
Its ok to say I don’t know, whether I suspect one way or the other or neither way.
This is not a matter of belief/disbelief that creates ambivalence in my life, presently.
My pet cat passed away this week.
I am not concerned of beliefs of where his spirit or consciousness went after existence.
I am only concerned with remembering his existence…
he had a pretty good life.
he was a good friend.
I feel the loss.
Thats far more important and meaningful to me than metaphysical statements of beliefs or disbeliefs in an afterlife.
for these questions, and many others I answer
I don’t know…
and thats ok .
