Have you ever wondered (when you were an active believer) what life would be like immediately after the big A?
In my experience of the pre-big A spiritual paradise most witnesses were aware of the problem posed by the dead bodies of those slain by the bloody minded, would-be mass murderer Jesus. Most liked to quote the author of The Revelation, that carrion birds would eat the carcasses. Others became more imaginative, going far beyond what scripture says. But I do not think that anyone, including the author of The Revelation document, could really understand the full affect of 7.5 billion dead bodies throughout the earth. Imagine the world's large cities like New York or London with over 20 million dead bodies in a close proximity, or one of the planned Chinese super-cities (Beijing, Guangzhou, Shanghai) with 100 million dead carcasses concentrated in the area.
What would it be like?
A recent experiment conducted by researchers at the Mississippi State University gives us an idea of what it may be like. The research was investigating the affect of dead bodies on the environment. They were able to obtain 4 tons of dead pigs. And it was not just vultures that fed on the carcasses, but also assorted insects. How would you cope with rivers of maggots? How would you like to walk through the slush flowing from the dead bodies?
