    Sound reflections by Edgar,
    And given that no man has ever experienced the afterlife and been able to relay those experiences to us peons struggling with existence here on the planet, we must remain obsessed with absolute reason on this subject and not forsake mind adventures to justify belief. These include actions such as leaps of faith or non rational beliefs in justifying moral systems. Mind all parties: being terrified by ghosts and witches one evening of the year remains extremely sound behavior.
