Born of Rape and the Immortal Soul

    One of the basic laws of physics is that you cannot create or destroy matter you can only change it. If this is true then it must also mean that the universe is not expanding because no new matter can be added to what already exists due to the previously mentioned law. It would also therefore be reasonable to assume that the energies that power all life forms cannot expand either.

    There are considered to be four fundamental forces in the universe: electromagnetism, strong nuclear, weak nuclear and gravity. Debate rages over which is the most important but whichever it is it is still simply energy.


    According to the laws of physics it would appear so. This would mean that parents do not as such give birth to children but rearrange matter in order to create an entity they recognise as another being.


    There are a number of advantages to viewing existence in this manner. If say you were born of rape then a conservative mind state would conclude (albeit very quietly) that if it were not for that rape then you would not exist; and that you would have to go throughout life with the great psychological burden that you only exist thanks to an act of evil.

    However by viewing all matter and energy as eternal being “born” (i.e. manifested on earth) through an act of evil may be regarded as a misfortune for the individual but not something essential to its existence.

    As far as vegetarianism is concerned you will frequently hear farmers and meat eaters saying that if they didn’t raise animals for slaughter they would have no lives at all. But are they not in fact merely ripping souls from the ether and forcing them into places they’d rather not be?

      I suppose that is one way of looking at it. However, we are all aware of the advantages of life. The rest is idle speculation. How do you know that here is not exactly where something wants to be?

      Either way. I've always considered the vegetarian argument of this sort to be somewhat arrogant. Plants are life forms also. Think about it. You eat unborn babies. You rip the flesh from many of those babies so you can chew on their insides. Others, you eat the poor little soul, itself. Ripping it from the earth just as it reaches maturity; never allowing it the joy of a full life.

      Then you have vegetarians who eat fish. Jerking them out of their happy environment. Letting them gasp for water until they have slowly died. Or, cutting their heads offs before they've passed away.

      The only humane alternative must be starving yourself.

      The universe can expand without the need to create or destroy matter, because quite simply, it is space that is expanding, not matter.

      Energy doesn't expand, space expands.

      I've never seen such a debate, do you have any references?

      Yes, people are born, for example. Other things just change.

      We call that being born.

      That act would probably have far more psychological effect on the victim of rape than anyone else.

      You lost me there.
