A Conversation Between Twins

Going out of the Womb

"In the belly of a pregnant woman, two babies have a conversation. One of them is a believer and the other is an atheist. (*)

The atheist: Do you believe in life after birth?

The believer: Sure. Everyone knows that there is life after birth. We are here to grow and be strong enough and prepared for what awaits us after.

The atheist: Nonsense! There cannot be any life after birth! Can you imagine how this life would be?

The believer: I do not know all the details, but I think there is more light, and maybe we'll walk around and we’ll eat there.

The atheist: Nonsense! It is impossible to walk and eat! Ridiculous! We have the umbilical cord that feeds us. I just want to point out to you that life after birth cannot exist because our life, the cord, is too short.

The believer: I'm sure it's possible. It will just be a bit different. I can imagine how it will be.

The atheist: But nobody ever came back from there! Life simply ends due to birth. And frankly, life is a great suffering in the darkness.

The believer: No, no! I do not know exactly how our life will be after birth, but in any case, we will meet our mother and she will take care of us!

The atheist: A mother? Do you really think we have a mother? So where is she then? "

  1. Loved it. Makes me hope there is life after death also!

  2. Thank you for visiting.

    Having been there (dead) and back, my experience is that there is a something after death and it's wonderful! I really didn't want to come back!
