I can't wait for the responses from this post, Jason! I think the enormous response about pets going to heaven has enticed you to ask this one! My official comment is: I don't know.
You're right. It got a good response, so I'm kind of posting on the curtails of its glory. However, I really just need a caption to put with this cool butterfly picture that I took the other day.

John,Your a research machine! Way to go man. I like the designation of "experimental theology." I wonder if its the natural outflow of people who are recovering from other things they experimented with.
