In the belly of a pregnant woman,
two babies are having a
conversation. One of them is a
believer and the other is an
The Atheist: Do you believe in life
The Believer: Of course I do.
Everybody knows there is life after
birth. We are here in order to
grow strong enough and prepared
for what awaits us after it.
The Atheist: Nonsense! There canít
be life after birth! Can you imagine
how this life would be?
The Believer: I donít know all the
details, but I believe thereís more
light, and maybe we will walk and
feed ourselves there.
The Atheist: Rubbish! Itís
impossible to walk and feed
ourselves! Ridiculous! We have the
umbilical cord that feeds us. I just
want to point this out to you: Life
after birth canít exist because our
life, the cord, is already too short.
The Believer: I am sure itís
possible. It will be just a little
different. I can envision it.
The Atheist: But there is nobody
who has ever returned from it!
Life simply ends with birth. And
frankly, life is just one big
suffering in the dark.
The Believer: No, no! I donít know
how life after birth will be exactly,
but I do know we will meet our
mother and she will take care of
The Atheist: Mother? You think
we have a mother? You actually believe in a 'mother'?? So, where is
The Believer: She is everywhere
around us, and we are in her! We
move because of her and thanks to
her, we move and live! Without
her, we wouldnít exist.
The Atheist: Baloney! I havenít
seen any such mother; hence,
there is none.
The Believer: I canít agree with
you. In fact, sometimes, when
everything calms down, we can
hear her sing and feel how she
caresses our world. I strongly
believe that our real life will begin
only after birth.
