    Spirit Influence

    I read the introduction and here¿s my take on this¿ It is my personal conviction that our genetic makeup influences more then just our physical appearance; our mental faculties and characteristics (personality traits) are also hereditary just like our physical traits. Therefore, a grandchild could behave much like his grandfather or other relative who has passed away. I think there¿s also a very real possibility that a young child, especially because he/she is a ¿clean slate¿ of sorts, can act as a vehicle for spirit influence. When these events referenced in the book occur, I think it¿s most likely a spirit (hopefully benevolent) simply manifesting itself through an impressionable child. In no way do I believe that the child is literally ¿the soul¿ of some past ancestor as this would deny the individual soul of the child. Think about it, if the ¿soul¿ is, in fact, ¿genetic¿; every child is the result of miscellaneous genes mixed together unique to a combination of genes between a specific mother and father. Brothers and sisters are normally not alike in personality because they are the result of an infinite combination of genes even though both mother and father are the same. Even identical twins whose DNA is ¿identical¿ have radically different personalities¿ I think the rational conclusion is that the spirit world influences the physical world and that¿s how and why these mysteries occur. There is some biblical evidence that when we die we are ¿like angels¿; the ancients believed that angels (both good and bad) influence our thinking ¿the devil made me do it¿ but they do not necessarily dictate the material world, otherwise personal accountability, free will and responsibility would be non-existent. Thanks!
