    Hmmmm, so we are reduced to “cycles of carbon and calcium?”

    I prefer that we are “fearfully and wonderfully made” by our creator.

    As a believer, I will be returned to Him.

      Alice–

      I’m working on an essay to present the other side: that we are best described as conscious entities (souls) inhabiting organic forms. But even if one takes that view, at death the body itself is still reduced to its constituent elements and recycled in the biosphere. The two descriptions are not mutually exclusive. In fact, since our biological nature is fairly evident, while our spiritual one remains debatable, even believers should look for ways to interweave the two perspectives. To deny biology is to deny material reality, just as to deny divinity is to deny higher meaning. Thanks for the comment.
