I will Tep...I will just ignore the rather mischievous expression on the little stirrers face.. :lol:

Back to your point..yes puntarbhava can be read both ways. Which is why there is no need for disgreement.
The important thing is what goes on on the cushions. At different times I have held a literal post mortem view of punarbhava and a view that was more agnostic about post mortem states. What didnt change was what I did on the meditation cushion, and the motive for that, to end suffering.

A Japanese man has been arrested on suspicion of writing a computer virus that destroys and replaces files on a victim PC with manga images of squid, octopuses and sea urchins. Masato Nakatsuji, 27, of Izumisano, Osaka Prefecture, was quoted as telling police: "I wanted to see how much my computer programming skills had improved since the last time I was arrested."

The Buddha taught to not believe something just because he said it (I think he taught this) but rather you should verify stuff through your own experience and so on the post mortem rebirth issue I'm taking his advise and not believeing in it just because he said it....and I'm waiting for somthing in my experience to point towards post mortem rebirth....but so far nothing has even hinted at it....oh well....it really doesn't seem to be a hindrance though in that all the other stuff that the Buddha taught still makes perfectly good sense and seems to work even without a belief in post mortem rebirth.....so.....why should I be concerned about this issue?
