Do you think reincarnation is a silly, obscene idea?

I, personally, believe this is what happens after death. We, as humans, are just merely traveling from one body to the next. And based on how we treat others (aka karma), will effect who or what we will be in the next life.
What are your thoughts on this?


  1. I believe in resurrection. Which is an awful lot like reincarnation, but instead of becoming someone else, you become a better version of you.

  2. I think it’s a possibility. Our conscience could be more than just survival of the fittest. Although I accept this idea, I don’t or classify myself as a “believer”.

  3. l’m with Slazy. It is totally silly. If humans do not cross over into other species while alive, why would it happen when one dies?
    Anything is possible …. in the movies.

  4. I guess im a christian but i do believe in reincarnation to a point. I think if your soul hasn’t fulfilled its purpose on earth then God will put you back. why waste a perfectly good soul, right? haha

  5. its just as silly and obscene idea as any other views on religion. I think religion in general is silly but to say that any one view on any type of religion is better than another is just ignorance wrapped up in the veil of religion.

  6. Really can’t imagine what you have based this off of, but somewhere over the rainbow you took a wrong turn. But you did say that this is your personal belief. Make sure you have some info and do lots of research on the subject. I believe that the dead know not anything. When we are dead, it is a form of sleep.
    Ec 9:5 For the living know that they shall die: but the dead know not any thing, neither have they any more a reward; for the memory of them is forgotten.

  7. Hello,
    No, like all religions there is no “empirical proof” to date that it is true or not true, nobody has returned from being really dead to say what’s on the other side nor have the prophets, Jesus, Mohamed through to God the Father Himself come to tell us which is the correct path. We are all going on blind faith and take our chances as such without being able to show concrete proof we are indeed right.

  8. My personal beliefs echo yours. I also believe in reincarnation and karma. I personally read scriptures from India that support the ideas of reincarnation and karma.
    I think that a lot of people find reincarnation “obscene and silly”, unfortunately. They are afraid of the idea that their actions in this life will reap consequences iin this life, what to speak of in future lives. Also they are so stuck in perceiving things only by their 5 senses, and thinking that everything must exist only through that medium, so there must be no such thing as reincarnation. Reincarnation is a transcendental idea that our material senses can’t fathom.
    In the Bhagavad-Gita, there is a verse:
    “As the embodied soul, in one body, passes from youth to old age, so the soul similarly passes to another body at death. A self-realized soul is not bewildered by such a change.”
    In other words, a person who is transcendental and not caught up in sense gratification will understand this concept of reincarnation. Otherwise, we do not have hope of understanding it – only transcendental persons or God from within the heart will allow us to believe and understand it. Really the ideas are beyond our material mental understanding, though.
    I personally believe that karma makes a lot of sense. You see a lot of people asking, “Why do bad things happen to good people?” and “Why am I, a very good person, stuck in such a miserable state of life?” They ask those questions so much. Even Christians ask these questions; they do not have the answers to these questions. Well, karma explains all those questions away. Easily. Karma is wherein we reap the rewards of good or bad deeds from our previous lives, in this life, and what we do in this life (and in the moments of our death) affects what body we will be born in, in the next life.
    It’s a lot to think of…but it gives a sense of reassurance and comfort, in my opinion. I don’t find it silly or obscene at all.
