Bret, I believe that Tim had just made the point that Jesus was not at all interested
in an after life--"didn't give a hoot". So was Tim trying to make the
point for reincarnation by that statement? I don't think so. He
says Jesus "didn't give a hoot" for an afterlife--I say that His statement
to the thief on the cross shows that He did give a hoot, and gave
more than that I might add. But the list can read the whole account
and decide for themselves.
