  • Because serious research into reincarnation has finally begun, spurred on by what appears to be (and is) serious evidence that reincarnation is fact rather than superstition. In “Demon-Haunted World: Science as a Candle in the Dark,” brilliant scientist and hardcore skeptic of the paranormal, Carl Sagan, wrote the following [page 300]: “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.”

    It’s time for the nay-sayers on the subject of reincarnation to crack open their minds a bit to new possibilities.

  • It is increasing because everyone is arriving at a sense of mortality heretofore not prevalent in our societies. What brings this about, I am not sure….perhaps all the talk about the end of the Mayan calendar, the quadraints of Nostradamus on the subject, the end is near preaching of good people like Hal Lindsey, maybe all of these things and more.

    Atheists know they cannot cling to a God so they have to believe in themselves….hoping against all hope, that their ends will result in new beginnings somehow.

    Well, they are right about that. Their ends above the ground will result in new beginning in hell. Re-incarnation is make believe and they accuse christians of fairy tale belief.

    Hahahahahaha. That is the last laugh in case you didn’t recognize it.

    On a serious note, God’s will is that none should perish and that all should come to everlasting life. You need to take your free will and make a decision for Jesus Christ in your pitiful lives while you are still drawing that fresh air….and remember, tomorrow is promised to no man.

  • It’s sensible on a multitude of scales. How many people would have to be in some heaven or hell? It makes sense that the universe would recycle everything, not just matter.

    From an irreligious point of view, most western point of views on the afterlife are kind of irrational and just a bit creepy. All the action seems to be here, in the physical world.
    Even if next time you do come back as a wookie.

  • If there is a soul that lives on, reincarnation makes the most sense to me. So many things in nature are cyclical.

    And there have been some amazing stories about children recalling past lives and knowing things they should not have known because they’d had no exposure to it: foreign languages, how someone died, family members living across the world from their last life, remembering what it was like to die, etc.

    The idea of eternal punishment or eternal reward just doesn’t make any sense to me.

  • People have anxiety at the thought of non-existence. Westerners are increasingly disillusioned with Abrahamic religions, which rely on resurrection and condemn reincarnation (unless you’re Jewish). Reincarnation is an eastern belief common to religions that are generally more peaceful. Reincarnation’s also more humane and ethical in its principle, and is more attuned with nature’s order than a celestial courtroom. An eternity in heaven is still more attractive for most people because heaven’s based on eternal pleasure, unlike reincarnation.

  • It doesnt make any sense… It would be supposing that there is someone in charge that tells you, after you die, whether you got it right or not. Then would decide to send them back or not…..Not very sensible.

    Besides what do you have to get right???
