    For those that believe there is life after death but not that there is heaven hell. Just a peaceful place that souls go to and if they are troubled or a nasty soul sometimes they get trapped on earth and have to be told to move on and to let go.

    I don't believe in Heaven and Hell, but I do believe that when we die we don't just simply disappear, what would be the point in that, what would be the point in anything if we were just here for 80 years and that was it. I think souls are re incarnated, I don't think they just vanish.

    Exactly. And there's no tying down to strict conventions...it teaches what's important and core to religion: the caring for others and belief in that higher entity without the idea that you HAVE to pray at a religious place or follow certain rules and customs to be close to God.
    He can hear you whether you talk to him in a religious institution or simply out, busy with your everyday life.
    I think it's great and accepts everybody, working for a greater good without divisions

    I thought that would be a given...
    You can't exactly observe a soul with the five senses, can you?

    But here's one - What is consciousness?
    And if so, do you believe there is such thing free will?

    For many people there's evidence, however it's not useful against scientific scrutiny.
