For Judeo-Christian adherents. Why is reincarnation not a "logical" part of the world, but Heaven & Hell are?

Just because you take the Bible as a literal schematic for reality does not mean you can’t think about this for yourselves… or maybe some are unable, I don’t know. To assume either, I think, is magical and hopeful thinking, but perhaps some need it as a defense mechanism because they’re not offered alternative worldviews or can’t live with mortality.
If anyone says “proof” in the Bible, I will LMAO, cause I know it’s almost inevitable.

  1. Who are you talking to? Yourself?
    Reincarnation is just as believable as the concept of heaven and hell. I dont find the mainstream version of Christianity very logical, whatsoever.
    I dont believe what I believe based on what sounds like it might be ok.
    I dont know anyone that really believes in their religion just based on what logically makes more sense.

  2. Recarnation wouldnt be posible because if you were dont you think that people would remeber what happened to them in there other lives. There is proof that there is a heaven and hell because there is proof of God. You dont need a bible to know this because look in isreal those are God’s chosen people. there is realyy those people there and the think of us we are people and we are alive. jesus is alive

  3. In my opinion many non believers have never experienced being human prior to this life. They have nothing they can relate to in terms of awareness of having lived before.
    And yes, as a non believer suggested, do read “The Demon Haunted World” by Carl Sagan, a hard-nosed and extremely skeptical scientist who in fact said that available evidence shows that reincarnation is unquestionably a possibility.
    Carl Sagan – brilliant scientific mind behind the “Cosmos” miniseries and books, part of the science team for the Voyagers spacecraft – and known for his tireless dedication to debunking claims of the paranormal. As a serious scientist, Sagan detested the “baloney” in the so-called supernatural world, and even founded a group specifically to examine and debunk paranormal claims. But after looking into the studies conducted by serious researchers, such as Dr. Ian Stevenson, in the field of reincarnation, Sagan was so impressed that he concluded [emphasis mine] that reincarnation is possible:
    “At the time of writing there are three claims in the ESP field which, in my opinion, deserve serious study: … (3) that young children sometimes report the DETAILS OF A PREVIOUS LIFE, which upon checking turn out to be ACCURATE and which they COULD NOT HAVE KNOWN ABOUT IN ANY WAY OTHER THAN REINCARNATION. I pick these claims … as examples of contentions that MIGHT BE TRUE.” – “Demon-Haunted World: Science as a Candle in the Dark” by Carl Sagan (pg 300)
    Actually, the original, unadulterated Christianity taught reincarnation and karma, as it was taken for granted as truth with Jesus and his followers (as shown in John 9:1-3). Ancient Judaism also embraced the truth of reincarnation (called “gilgul ha’ne’shamot” in Hebrew).

  4. From my understanding, Bible believers don’t think God is that fair or kind that he should give anyone, no matter who, a second, third or fourth chance. They don’t say so in so many words but behind their beliefs is the conviction that God is easily p!ssed and his anger must always be fed by someone somewhere suffering. Reincarnation would make God too nice.
    When Carl Sagan says something considered “supernatural” M I G H T * B E
    * T R U E , that’s as good as it gets from a no-nonsense skeptic like Sagan. Fortunately he was not only educated, he was smart.
