  1. id say reincarnation…..we are made of mostley energy…and energy cannot be destroyed….so that energy has to go somewhere……unless einstien was a fool.

  2. I think we are here to learn and grow, and that we get as long as we need to achieve that goal, so as a Buddhist I pick rebirth over reincarnation, but six of one for the purpose of this question.

  3. bah,
    look at all the atheister-than-thou attitudes. neither makes more sense!
    come on. i think reincarnation makes a lot more sense from a critical thinking standpoint. i mean, if there is a supernatural power in control of aspects of our life, he clearly has shown us that life is a cyclical nature. from day and night to the seasons, i’ve seen a lot of evidence for reincarnation (think anual flowers even) than i have for death and ascension (which i’ve seen zero examples of)

  4. Actually, I’d have to say reincarnation by a slim margin – while there has been no evidence supporting judgment day (since the purported event hasn’t happened yet), there have been a (very) few documented reports regarding supposed reincarnation that have (as yet) not been fully explainable – not proven by any means, but still evidence > zero…

  5. Well…Both are equally nonsensical. But I like the idea of reincarnation more. It makes for good stories and cute, squishy romances. 🙂

  6. Changing Bodies
    Dr. Singh. People want more proof.
    Srila Prabhupada. What more is required? The eternality of the soul is a simple fact. I am an eternal soul. My body is changing, but I am not changing. For example, I am now an old man. Sometimes I think, “Oh, I used to jump and play, but now I cannot jump because my body has changed.” I want to jump, but I cannot do it. That jumping propensity is eternal, but because of my old body I cannot do it.
    Dr. Singh. Opponents will say that according to their observation, the nature of consciousness is that it lasts for only one body.
    Srila Prabhupada. That is foolishness. In Bhagavad-gita (2.13) Krsna explains:
    dehino ‘smin yatha dehe
    kaumaram yauvanam jara
    tatha dehantara-praptir
    dhiras tatra na muhyati
    “As the embodied soul continually passes, in this body, from boyhood to youth to old age, the soul similarly passes into another body at death. The self-realized soul is not bewildered by such a change.” Just as this body is always changing (as I can see in my daily experience), there is a similar change at the time of death.
    Dr. Singh. But according to the scientists, we cannot actually observe this last change.
    Srila Prabhupada. Their eyes are so imperfect that they cannot observe many, many things. Their ignorance does not make the Bhagavad-gita unscientific. Why don’t the scientists admit the imperfection of their senses? They must first admit the imperfection of their senses. Their seeing power does not determine what is and what is not science. Dogs cannot understand the laws of nature. Does that mean the laws of nature don’t exist?
    Dr. Singh. Well, the scientists admit that argument, but they say the way to become perfect is through objective information and experience.
    Srila Prabhupada. No. That is not the way to become perfect. No one can become perfect through imperfect thinking, and our thinking must be imperfect because our senses and minds are imperfect.
    Dr. Singh. Srila Prabhupada, another question can be raised. is it not possible that the soul may accept three, four or five bodies and then die?
    Srila Prabhupada. You are accepting millions of bodies. I say that your body of yesterday is not your body of today. So, if you live for one hundred years, how many times have you changed bodies? Just calculate.
    Dr. Singh. Thirteen.
    Srila Prabhupada. Why thirteen?
    Dr. Singh. Medical science says that all the bodily cells are replaced every seven years.
    Srila Prabhupada. No, not every seven years–every second. Every second, the blood corpuscles are changing. Is it not so?
    Dr. Singh. Yes.
    Srila Prabhupada. And as soon as the blood corpuscles change, you change your body.
    Dr. Singh. In scientific terminology, can the eternality of the soul be compared to conservation of energy?
    Srila Prabhupada. There is no question of the conservation of energy, because energy is always existing.
    Dr. Singh. But according to scientific terminology, the law of conservation of energy is that energy cannot be created or destroyed, which means, I think, that it is eternal.
    Srila Prabhupada. Oh, yes, that we admit. Krsna is eternal; therefore all His energies are eternal.
    Dr. Singh. Is that why the living entity is also eternal?
    Srila Prabhupada. Yes. If the sun is eternal, its energies–heat and light–are also eternal.
    Dr. Singh. Does it follow from this, then, that life cannot be created or destroyed?
    Srila Prabhupada. Yes. Life is eternal. It is not created or destroyed. It is only temporarily covered. I am eternal, but last night I was covered by sleep, so I think in terms of yesterday and today. This is the condition of the material world.

  7. both of them make the same kind of sense because each serves as the critical device that hooks in the flock. the success of religion depends on its ability to scare people. islam’s success may be attributed to the powerful and incredibly scary poetry in the surah that describes judgment day. even the most educated, intelligent, and tough atheist will get a chill down the spine. imagine what it does to the flock. religion, george w bush, and global warmists use a common strategy. first scare the people;. then offer your agenda as their savior.

  8. Reincarnation makes more sense…’Judgement Day’ makes NO sense. But, if one is happy and satisfied and firmly entrenched in the ‘here-and-now’, one has nothing whatsoever in afterlife.
