Let us dive off into the metaphysical imaginary land for just a moment and talk about new baby souls. More specifically, new souls born as new babies. Now this is all hypothetical and designed to get you to ponder and think of something other that the harsh realities we face daily.
So for just a moment consider that when a new baby is born, his/her soul has to come from somewhere. In some cultures they call it reincarnation. There are all kinds of debates and studies on this already so I am not going to go into that. What I am thinking is … if millions of people are dying and hardly any babies are being born … then what happens to all those souls waiting to be reborn? Do they just hang out in purgatory/heaven for a really long time?
