I was watching a program on The Universe last night talking, in part, about the Big Bang and the fact that every atom and molecule now in the world (and us) has always been here and has just changed places and form and use over time...which means that we are all made up of atoms that were breathed out by everyone else from time eternal. So...that means I have a teeny tiny bit of Jesus in me...and Judas, and Cleopatra and Adolph Hitler and, and, and...the mind boggles! No wonder I find myself constantly in a state of utter confusion!

Yep. This is most prominent when speaking to anthills. If water comes and washes away the ants, they will rebuild the ant hill but you will notice that it is not the same as It's consciousness has changed into some other identity/personality.

Maybe Hitler. But not Jesus. He ascended into heaven after being resurrected.

Humans slowly shed their skin through tiny flakes. Even Jesus would have left part of himself in this wonderful cyclic world.

Ahh....good point.

But chances are very very slim that you'd have any of those atoms in you at any given moment, due to the vastness of the universe.

But atoms on the earth tend to stay on the earth.

It's been calculated that in each glass of water we drink, at least one molecule has passed through the bladder of Oliver Cromwell. Presumably Jesus too .

Maybe Hitler, Cleopatra, and billions more, but I think Jesus was made up and never really existed. In my view make believe people do not have any atomic structure to be recycled.
