Heaven is here on Earth, in our own body.
The article "Christians Wrong About Heaven, Says Bishop" by David Van Biema, published in Time magazine this week, provides an interesting perspective on Heaven by Tom Wright, Bishop of Durham and senior cleric in the Church of England. This famous Anglican theologian is reported saying that at no point in the Bible, heaven is described as the place where your soul will go without your body. According to him, the New Testament says that when 'Christ does return, the dead will experience a whole new life: not just our soul, but our bodies..”, hinting that it will be our own bodies and personality, recreated here on Earth.
He also quotes and supports John Polkinghorne, a physicist and a priest, who explained it this way: "God will download our software onto his hardware until the time he gives us new hardware to run the software again for ourselves."
Rael declared today: “this is not so far from the truth, here is finally a Christian Bishop coming close to the truth”
The Raelian philosophy states that not only we have been created by scientists from another planet but also that these scientists have the technology to recreate themselves or any living entity thanks to an advanced cloning technology.
Rael explains in his book “Yes to Human Cloning” that soon we will be able to not only clone ourselves and recreate a full grown up bodies but also download our memory and personality in a computer and later on, transfer it directly into the young body that we just cloned from ourselves. “It is jut a matter of inserting the software into the hardware and we then wake up in a young body with all our memories and personality intact, ready to live another cycle of life. This process can be repeated indefinitely, moving from one cloned body of ourselves to another new cloned body.” This is why Raelians have been advocating cloning as the key to eternal life.
