“No, they do NOT have a soul.”, she answered matter of factly.
“So, there is no afterlife for them?”, I asked.
I was thinking, we share a meal, sleep on the same bed, play inside the house on a rainy day and fight on some occasion. How different can they be?
I was in the a freshman in high school then. I don’t really know, but some how, my religion teacher lost some sort of credibility when she said that. How can heaven NOT include my pets? A place of bliss without my cats? Now, that’s a land of make-believe.
The next class after that was Math.
The topic: Lines
Two straight lines that does not intersect (even if you extend it for miles on end)
That was how my Math teacher defined parallel lines. Are my pets and I like parallel lines? Living hand in
hand paw, but will never really meet in the end?
That’s just plain sad. I think I like perpendicular lines better. ^
