Since I donít believe there is procreation in heaven, why would there be sex? It would obviously be problematic if a person had had several spouses who died in this life.

2. The sperms of the male is in liquid form. The ovum of the female is in liquid form. When fertilization takes place and after about nine months, a baby is born. Unfortunately, the baby died and buried. After some time, the baby was exhumed. Where did the skeleton and hair of the baby come from?
1. I don't see how this point verifies the existence of a god (any god) in any way. Please explain if you will.

2. Neither the sperm or the ovum are in liquid form. They are carried in a liquid yes.

Thinking of point 1. by the above logic, thunder would verify the existence of Zeus, Thor, Indra and Perun would it not?

And to be on topic - sex would verify the existence of Eros and Aphrodite.

Well this very question was supposedly posed to Jesus, IIRC the hypothetical was a series of brothers die one after the other, each according to Jewish custom marry the widow, now in heaven who is her husband? Jesus said basically it's irrelevant because "in heaven they are neither married nor given in marriage but are like the angels". So ... marriage doesn't exist, strong implication sex doesn't exist, and the standard line I was always given, was that our society and relationships will be far more satisfying and enjoyable than what sex / marriage provides. Personally my experience with sex, marriage, and the tenuous combination thereof, is that it's a pretty low bar to meet anyway.

Short answer, no. There's nowhere in the Bible that even remotely says there is sex in Heaven. But there's is something that I've never heard in my 52 years of life: Someone basing their soul in eternity on if they can have sex in Heaven. I mean, yikes, lol. First, you're trying to parallel ecstasy, happiness, and physical gratification in an Earthly mindset and experience with happiness and such things in Heaven. What we will experience in Heaven will be light years beyond anything we could ever compare to here on Earth. If you're in Heaven, you won't be thinking about serving YOUR desires, YOUR pleasures, or anything based on YOU. It's about God and glorifying Him. That will give us the more bliss and happiness than everyone has ever experienced here on Earth since the beginning of time COMBINED! It's beyond our thinking. So don't make the mistake of trying to imagine Heaven from our very limited Earthly mind and experiences. Too, please rethink your seemingly obsessive attachment to sex. Sex is a wonderful gift from God that He gave to us to enjoy and cherish. But to be willing to lose your soul over the prospect of not having sex is troubling and something I've never heard. Anyway, hope this helps a little for what it's worth. Good luck in your walk.

And that's it? Glorifying Him? This the same guy who drowned the world? And killed all the Egyptian first borns? That's heaven? The same guy who allows the suffering of children here on earth? No thanks!

But I agree with Mordant. Surpassing the 'happiness' of marriage and sex is indeed a pretty low bar to meet. Mind you, there was a period in my life in which I can say I was truly happy. But even then there were trials and tribulations, yet I experienced a great joy and sense of fulfilment.

By the way, if 'god' and 'heaven' do actually exist then I think y'all got the picture of what it's about all wrong.

Christianity does not know nymphs and do not know polygamy on the ground
Because sex is considered a means of perpetuating mankind
It is not an end in itself
Because sex is a common instinct between man and animal
But the difference between them is control of lust
This is the essence of the concept of Christianity in sex
Because it differs from Islam
Which allows a person to exercise his desires freely
In the earth and in heaven

The only oppressed is women
Because at a time when the Muslim gets the nymphs
Women do not have this right in paradise
I think that Islam must restore its calculations so that it equates men and women in the nymphs of Paradise with males and females

Sex is not really for procreation. Procreation is an unfortunate side effect although most couples do plan at least a few of their 'procreations'.

So, in that light one might think of heaven as a place where the unwanted side effects don't happen.

Why would you assume that there is no procreation in heaven?
