We have women born in a man’s body, and men born in a woman’s body. Now there is a case in which supposedly a cat was born in a human body. After the jump, read the article and watch the video of the young woman meowing, hissing at dogs, and grooming herself.
Notice the neoplatonic worldview here, as well as in the rhetoric of transgenderism, which suggests that we have an identity prior to our birth, a sort of pre-existing spirit that is then embodied when it enters the world. But the “soul,” the seat of one’s personal essence and identity, is separate from the “body.”
Many of the Greeks and Romans believed this, as did various Renaissance mystics. The Mormons believe in something like this. So do some Eastern religions. Christianity, though, has always had a higher view of the body. But it’s certainly hard to understand how scientific materialists can buy into this sort of thing, and yet they do.
