Which religious concept do you find to be the MORE credible: Reincarnation -or- Salvation?

I’m not saying you have to ‘believe in’ either one, but which makes more sense?

  1. Reincarnation.
    Cause at least you can use pseudo science to pretend you have evidence for it that actually looks like evidence if you kind of squint at it.
    Salvation has nothing to its name but angry zealots.

  2. Its actually creepy that Reincarnation is actual mentioned in ancient Jewish Texts, just cant remember its name its like Nub or Geb or something….
    But then reincarnation is apart of many cultures…though salvation is unique by that not many culture have it….
    Also can you be reincarnated to an angel or demon…then both would be credible…

  3. Salvation.
    The doctrine of Reincarnation leads to racist and elitist beliefs like the “goyim” having or not having “a Jewish soul”.
    The doctrine of Salvation isn’t racist or elitist. Anyone can be saved.

  4. I like reincarnation better. 🙂 I might be biased because I’m asian though lol.
    If you screw up this life, your suffering for next life only lasts a lifetime. If you screw up this life according to Salvation, you burn in hell for eternity. Seriously, no matter how dire the misdeed, NOBODY deserves to burn in hell forever. Just my standpoint.

  5. Reincarnation, definitely, simply because I believe that life-force is a type of energy. According to the law of conservation of energy, energy is neither created nor destroyed, so I think that energy has to go somewhere. I don’t know if that necessarily means that my same consciousness will come back as something or someone else, but that doesn’t mean that the essential life-force isn’t recycled in some way. There are also scientific experiments involving past-life regression with results that, while nowhere near conclusive, at least point to the possibility of past lives.
    Salvation, or the concept of heaven and hell, on the other hand, is merely a matter of mythology. We have absolutely no way of knowing one way or the other, but with salvation, we have nothing to rely on but blind faith.
    In addition, the concept of salvation allows for someone to repent of evil ways on their deathbed and be granted salvation, no matter what they have done. It does not require one to earn their salvation; rather it is something bestowed upon them by some god. In my experience, you only get what you earn, and I highly doubt that some eternal reward would be any different.

  6. Salvation because in the Bible it mentions that Jesus became man to save us from our sins. reincarnation is the invention of satan to deceive people in believing you don’t really die; you live on and on forever. satan is called “the father of lies.”

  7. Reincarnation makes more sense to me on a number of levels. I have had memories from past lives. As an imperfect parent, I could never sentence any of my children to an ETERNITY of pain and suffering, so how could a PERFECT parent even conceive of a place like that? As far as reincarnation goes, I do not believe we are here to pay any kind of Karmic Debt, rather we choose to come here for spiritual growth. Kind of like our educational system…you don’t HAVE to go to school…you can be home schooled and you don’t have to go to college. I don’t feel you have to reincarnate either, it’s a choice God gives us. I think maybe the salvation comes in that Jesus erased the need for karmic debt. I don’t know for sure.
