What If It Were Real?

Postby Nolan » August 24th, 2014, 5:48 pm

With the amount of importance we as a species put on the spirit, death, and religion, what if Necromancy were to become real? By whatever means, just the idea that someone can actually communicate, command, summon the spirits of the dead and raise corpses, would be horrifying and amazing at the same time I think. If it were real, what would happen? Would it be like The Walking Dead with people getting all paranoid and freaked out or would it be something of a scientific marvel? What do you think?

I have some extra basic game passes lying around. Would you like me to send you the code to one of them, to actually get into the game and do some RP? I will be happy to do so.

I just got a flu shot. And I'm sleepy.

That's about as far as I got.

Bacon and Miracle Whip sandwiches are food of the gods.

So, no one even bothered to read the original post? :(

Yup, read it. To give a serious answer, existing beliefs about whether contacting the dead let alone raising them are so varied and nuanced and at times contradictory, it's kind of like wanting to discuss what makes a Christian a Christian.

Human beings are, by nature curious and paranoid creatures. Were we to bring people back from the dead and confirm the afterlife some people would refuse to take it at face value, many would find it blasphemous, and fewer still would want to push the envelope as hard as they could.

Within a week the planet would be an irradiated husk.

I read it. And in that moment, it reminded me of the 3AM questions one of my ex'es used to pose. Like, waking me up to ask "What is love?"

Q: What is love?
A: Me not strangling you,... right... now....

If I could, I'd offer this too. You remind me of me- so excited about something and yet not able to act on it.
