There is growing scientific evidence that reincarnation is true, not the least of which is the statement made by one of the most brilliant and dedicated debunkers of the paranormal in our time — the astrophysicist Carl Sagan. After he studied the more serious evidence on the subject of reincarnation, such as the research conducted by Dr Ian Stevenson, Sagan wrote this in his book “Demon Haunted World: Science as a Candle in the Dark”: “At the time of writing there are three claims in the ESP field which, in my opinion, deserve serious study: … (3) that young children… Read more »

The Danish nuclear physicist Niels Bohr, also a Nobel laureate, stated, “All of us know that there is such a thing as consciousness, simply because we have it ourselves. Hence consciousness must be a part of nature, or, more generally, of reality, which means that quite apart from the laws of physics and chemistry, as laid down in quantum theory, we must consider laws of quite a different kind.” Such laws will include the laws of reincarnation, which govern the passage of consciousness from one physical body into another, the three modes of material nature (gunas), the 28 mystic perfections… Read more »

Reincarnation is a LIE according to the Bible. Hebrews 9:27 And it is appointed unto men once to die but after this the judgment. To be “born again” is not physical but spiritual.

Yes!!! I read a leading scientific artical that proofs that reincarnation/ rebirth is a real phanomina. Sorry, my mistake, the source was a comic.

there is a significant amount of anecdotal evidence. . . . things remembered that could not have been part of people’s lives, etc. Unfortunately there is a much larger amount of faked anecdotal evidence . . . .. enough to convince even the most ardent believers that there is no real evidence. I don’t think it works like that actually . . . . reincarnation or re’birth is possible only because in an infinite universe all events are possible, however I seriously doubt one reincarnates or is reborn on the same plane of existence, same universe, same planet etc .… Read more »

So far all we know about human memory, emotions, personality, and consciousness indicates they are the direct product of the organic brain. People with brain injuries can lose memory and have dramatic personality shifts, people with mental illness can generate false memories and delusions. Alzheimer’s robs the sufferer of their memory and eventually personality. Since the brain ceases to function at death and we have not found anything corresponding to a soul its difficult to see a scientific explanation for survival of what we think of as our individual selves. There are some studies that look at NDEs but they… Read more »

Its a belief. There hasn’t been any conclusive evidence on it, although there have been researchers who have tried to study it.

It has been termed as pseudo science or fringe science by the scientific community.

Let me run this by you. Matter and energy exist arbitrarily. Consciousness is essentially grotesquely convoluted electricity in organic tissue. That doesn’t make a lot of sense to me. I am buddhist. I believe that the mind existed first and created a platform for experience… the universe. This experience will end, but the mind will not. The process will just repeat. Where did the mind come from? Philosophically, nothing could exist without at least one sentient to experience… the universe requires at least one sentient. At least one mind in order to exist. In reality, nothing exists but the mind.… Read more »

No. You’d need something that could survive death and everything we know about the self/consciousness says that is the brain.

The bible explains that there is no possibility of reincarnation or rebirth.
There are a lot of teachings out there but only one God and one truth.

Well do you remember where you were before you were born for the 50,486th time. No, me either. OK guess we can’t use personal experience.

Nope I guess there isn’t any.

Sort of.

People died long ago, and they were buried in the ground long ago, and their remains helped grass, trees, and other plants grow.

They are a part of that.

No. The process is completely incorporeal. There is no way to empirically link one incarnation with another.

Yes, there is
There was some investigation into cellular memory.
I have to go find it though.

Also, a great deal of Dawkins early work attempted to prove that instinct was genetic and can be manipulated. He worked mainly with animals.

No. In fact neuroscience and psychology point clearly in the direction of materialism of the mind. You’re alive when your brain is functioning and when your brain dies there’s no more you.
