Solid Theology
Gideon quotes an interview with NT Wright, who speaks about our resurrected bodies being

"more solid than the present one - not less. We tend to think of a new state which will be a less solid thing. But what the New Testament is talking about is a new creation which would be a more solid thing, whatever that will be like."

We have to throw off the neo-platonic, quasi-gnostic view of our bodies (and by extention, physical creation and culture) so popular in evangelical circles for a more biblical understanding.
