    If you could specify what you mean, that'd be great :)

    I'm also not certain by what you mean. Do you mean like a purgatory type place? Levels to get to heaven? Do you mean them as literal places or states of mind?

    As a state of mind there are certainly levels of maturity between Earth, as a carnal state, and heaven as an enlightened state.

    From a Protestant Christian perspective the only place I can think of between Earth and Heaven was Sheol, however the faithful don't go there after Christ's death instead going straight up. Sheol still exists in this regard, but is solely a step between Earth and Gehenna as that side was not liberated as the side of the faithful was. I know Catholics believe in purgatory as a step between, but I'm not aware of any others within the Christian community.

    As a scientifically minded individual, I would assume that there are an infinite number of places between heaven and hell, which I'm assuming includes earth and purgatory as well as that place the dead babies go.

    Re: Do you Believe in the "I believe there is something more between heaven and earth

    Thank you guys so much for a quick responce.. okay so heres my story (one of them )

    i have been told by my parents at the age of... (cant remember) lets just say child for now.

    We were driving snowmobiles in Sweden, we stopped by this lavvo, its like a sami "tent" built out of mud, tree (and stone i think)

    Would aslo like to add that I am about 1/8 Sami....

    So with that in mind, all the other kids just ran around playing with eachother. But all I did was walking to the "lavvo" I sat on my knees, and just stared at the lavvo for about 10 mins. Without saying anything or not even doing anything at all, but to just stare at the lavvo.. My parents told me that kids usually could see into other worlds or feel spirits and stuff ?? I dont know. all I know is that, since they told me. It has been haunting me forever since !

    Do you meditate? It's a go to solution for any mental issues you may ever have and can help you understand more about yourself.

    I would really recommend meditation if you're having issues sorting out your mind and your beliefs, when done properly it obliterates stress and depression, either for a short or long time.

    Re: Do you Believe in the "I believe there is something more between heaven and earth

    nope.

    nothing at all. Needless to say, that for once I do not believe in heaven.

    I would recommend tea, and as weird as it sounds meditation could help - when I need to focus I usually just take long slow breaths and try to not think of anything particular. (that`s the hardest part)

    No, I do not.

    Although I like to think we could believe in it, I just think that it can't happen.

    I believe there exists other dimensions of time and space that are far beyond our reckoning... but none of those alternate dimensions hold a Heaven for us, or any supernatural entity.

    I don't believe in the supernatural. I believe that people who experience that sort of thing, including religious experiences, think they have and I sure grant them their experience
    although I think that the brain can fool you in so many ways that it's not even funny.

    Of course not, I just don't attribute it to something supernatural. ;)
    EDIT: Well, what frightens you can't really be censored so I'm not sure I actually agree with you there.
