Atheists, would you be more likely to listen to Christians who believe in reincarnation ?

Than those who believe in eternal hellfire? There are some, me being one of them. I used to believe in eternal torment, but no longer do.

  1. I know some believers who believe in reincarnation.
    Truth is, man could never explain the nature of GOD with their own words.

  2. Both of those ideas are impossible and ridiculous for the same reason.
    Consciousness is clearly the product of our physical, biological brains, and there is enough evidence of this to prove it beyond any reasonable doubt.
    One really cool reason we know this is because scientists can now read our thoughts, watch these videos to have your mind blown:

  3. doesnt matter about opinions…REALITY IS IF YOU DONT REPENT you dont live again. Who wants be a dog? too boring…it wont happen….FLYING AND MARRYING JESUS IS BETTER!!!

  4. the bible speaks against reincarnation. hebrews. it say ” its appointed for man to die once then face judgment ” that flys in the face of reincarnation. you believe in it your calling the lord a liar.

  5. I think that christians that believe in reincarnation are twice as crazy, because what was Jesus’ sacrifice for if you believe in reincarnation?

  6. It would be refreshing after the constant hellfire and damnation speeches, but I’ve gone down that road before too, it is nothing new, and really only a nice philosophical exercise, with no more proof than heaven and hell.

  7. Neither.
    Souls do not exist (i.e. consciousness does not transcend death). Therefore, concepts of life after death (reincarnation, heaven and hell, etc.) are null.

  8. No. I don’t believe in reincarnation either.
    I was reading an article on the subject yesterday, and I find it amusing that people who believe in reincarnation always claim that they were fascinating and often important people in their past lives. They were never just illiterate laborers, which is what most people of the past were: instead, they were connected with some royal court; were well-traveled and multi-lingual merchants; worked for or with some great historical figure or at some famous place; were the illegitimate children of royalty or nobles or were royalty or nobles themselves.
    One woman claimed she was a black slave in the U,S., but not just any slave: no, she gained her freedom and then spent her life helping other slaves escape.
    Amazing.

  9. I have had multiple theories on what happens after life, one of which, is reincarnation.
    However, more and more I am convinced that after life, we are trapped in a void, a presence of nonexistence. Forgive my oxymoron, but I have to say I am still vague on my own beliefs of what happens when we die.

  10. I believe reincarnation could be scientifically plausible if we can prove that human consciousness is not confined soley to the brain.

  11. Well, I’ll listen to all sorts of people, but I no more see reincarnation as likely than a heaven/hell existing. They both seem cultural ‘wishes’ rather than actual parts of nature.
    So it’s not about what’s ‘nice’, it’s about what’s real.
