    Re: Do you believe in Reincarnation?

    I don't believe in reincarnation, It's impossible that all energy of a organism can go-direct and exact to a new organism, at most if that "energy" might divid up in the earth. Nor I believe in the inmortality of the soul, at most I can understand that simply like energy but no way as a conscious-spirit, that's ridiculous. I think that when a person die, it's the end for him and his soul, because the conscious is part of the brain. And about the "previous experiences", In my opinion it could explain with the genetics.

    Oskorei, that is very funny. 'described in Yoga of Power by Julius Evola, and in the Tibetan Book of Death (havent read it, but Evola says so)'. You have not even read Evola yourself, and only have heard from others that 'there are ways to reincarnate the united person', and you believe it.

    Though I am a Hindu, I would like to quote Buddha's 'Kalama Sutta' in this respect, "Do not go upon what has been acquired by repeated hearing, nor upon rumor, nor upon what is in a scripture, nor upon tradition, nor upon surmise, nor upon an axiom, nor upon specious reasoning, nor upon a bias towards a notion that has been pondered over, nor upon another's seeming ability, nor upon the consideration 'The monk is our teacher'."

    What you had written initially is better. 'Reincarnation is degeneration of the original .. and after death they are usually (I would say, always) separated and re-used. The poll has too few options. The above was an important option, I wonder, why it did not occur to the topic starter.
    Georgie Boy, you hit the nail on the head.

    Re: Do you believe in Reincarnation?

    If time is infinite, and the amount of matter in the cosmos is finite, then reincarnation/metempsychosis is an ontologocal certainty.

    (I think I've written this sentence before...)
    "...The moral man is a lower species than the immoral, a weaker species; indeed - he is a type in regard to morality, but not a type in himself; a copy...the measure of his value lies outside him. ... I assess the power of a will by how much resistance, pain, torture it endures and knows how to turn to its advantage; I do not account the evil and painful character of existence a reproach to it, but hope rather that it will one day be more evil and painful than hitherto..." (Nietzsche)

    and if matter is only the clustering of atoms there is no certainty that soul will become soul again

    other then that, soul is brain and cognitive functions are constructed over years through predetermined genetics and additional perceptions on life, reincarnation is an illusion as much is spirituality

    If time is infinite, of course there is a 100% certainity that the same atoms will become a "soul" again, even the very exact same soul, technically. You just have to wait long enough
    Of course, only if we think of the order of atoms as random, if there actually is an intelligent being who guides, then most likely not.

    Do you believe in Reincarnation?

    The chance of the same soul reincarnating is at least eight times less than the all atoms of a bucket full of water jumping skyward at any point of time (if we take a man/woman to weigh 80 kg. and the bucket of water to weigh 10 kg).

    Re: Do you believe in Reincarnation?

    Would I be assuming correctly that those who believe in reincarnation believe that this process occurs with every human being? Or is it something condusive only to people with particular spiritual leanings?

    If the former, then how do you explain the fact that the population of the world is increasing? Would not the idea of "souls" being reincarnated over and over suggest that populations in this world would remain relatively consistent? Where are all these new "souls" popping up from?

    If the latter, then it is obviously just another religious conviction, and those are based upon faith alone. To attempt to "prove" these kind of things scientifically, like Dr. Ian Stevenson is apparently trying, is folly. Science works in just the opposite manner. First, something must be proven or, at least, reasonably shown to be self-evident, then one may safely accept it as fact. With reincarnation, it's fairly obvious that this belief system based on faith alone has been accepted as "fact" for thousands of years in certain religious circles, and only recently is trying to be justified through "proof".

    I do not believe in reincarnation, if for no other reason, I have no reason to believe in it.

    soul is supposed to be matter, so is the body but that doesn't mean they are the same, reincarnations don't happen with fullgrown bodies. The effort to capture reincarnation in a mathematic way of view is pointless, there is no empirical evidence of soul

    Re: Do you believe in Reincarnation?

    Oh, you have some special theory. I thought people considered 'soul' not to be like matter. And if both, 'soul' and body are matter, how can they be different? Have you described your theory somewhere in the forum? Of course, many parts of the body have evolved for different purposes.
