Immortals and beings who live like gods.

Is there a god? What is the meaning of life?

Immortals and beings who live like gods.

Do you believe that ancient beings live among us? Even in the bible Abraham and other spiritual beings have lived for hundreds of years, has anyone ever lived past 500 yeras? There are places to travel to which reveal mysteries which are hard to solve. Thank you for your time.

You are asking some big questions about religion.

This shows you are in serious trouble. it much better to go buy
some pizza and enjoy life.

You should practise what you preach.

As to the OP, I don't believe any of it.
I might look normal but believe me, I talk to animals and wait for them to reply.

pizza is most assuredly FOTG. :)
I'm not worried what I say, if they see it now or they see it later, I said it. If you don't know maybe that would hurt you, I don't know. You should know though, so you don't get hurt, so you know what side to be on when it happens.

It all depends how you define ancients and immortals, along with your take on what happens to consciousness after one dies a physical death. If in fact the ego discovers a way to extend its experience of consciousness after death (eg. Think of Egyptian mummies and the purpose of that practice) then yes ancients exist in a state of consciousness that is non physical in nature.

If you mean actual 500 year old people then I'd say no, biology precludes that possibility.

alexoliversen, i was thinking about henrietta just now and recalled this thread.

http://henriettalacksfoundation.org/

whether you would consider her to be 'living like a god' i do not know, but she is living, and all indications are that she will not stop doing so.

What about resurrection or reincarnation and rebirth? Well, I have seen doppelgängers - people who look like another person. Maybe they are just people in cosplay but some of them sure look real! I still haven't figured out the hairy Neanderthal guy walking around yet... but wait till you see them in real life!
