Why do I believe in reincarnation?

That’s my only remotely spiritual belief. I don’t believe in ghosts, deities, demons, spirits, etc.

..Yet I don’t like it for some reason. It seems very unrealistic and unscientific. I can’t get myself to not believe in it though.

It’s not because I’m afraid of death. I’m more then fine with dying.
There’s no real reason for me to believe in reincarnation yet I do…

Help? Anyone else have similar beliefs?

Jesus tried to pass on us this same cosmic experience. We choose that to believe or not believe in Jesus, that he had good intentions. Not all Shamans, prophets, priests or popes are good. Some people are Evil. Some Gods… Read more »
