Ramesh,
Many have already conqurred death thru Samadhi i.e instead of death approaching these devine saints, they themselves approached death thru Samadhi, as they realized the futility of the game called Life !
Nietzsche, Marx and Freud all present a strong argument for a kind of relativism".
Many references says that there is a notion of the eternal return which says that one should affirm every event in ones life again and again. Some would say it is a kind of carpe diem seize the day - attitude. But, in Nietzsche, it appears always at the mention of death. Cross this idea with the cosmopological theory of The Big Bang, which says that the universe is much like a balloon; it will expand to a certain point and then because of the gravitational pull have to collapse back into itself and then it will explode back out in expansion, then collapse back into itself, tehn explode back out, collapes back inand infinitum.

Then the external return says that not only should you affi ...more

NO. We are given the gift of this life for a purpose to live pious life as every one has to die one day. so try to pass the test - to receive rewards for good deeds done or face the penalty for misdeeds.
Do you think that those who are doing good deeds continuously will not be rewarded? OR those who do MISDEEDS will not be PUNISHED?
Every one of us will be resurrected either receive a reward or penalty for good / bad deeds - to live eternal life in hereafter.
1) Resurrection is not only logically but physically possible for the following reasons:
a. It if is God who created man in the first place, why should it be impossible for him to recreate him when he dies? Resurrection should be easier than original creation.
b. If you think about it carefully, you will come to see that the bringing of life to the dead is a common natural phenomenon. To believe in the possibility of the resurrection of human beings, a thinking person does not need to see a person coming to life again. ...more
