Do you believe in reincarnation?

Postby Shazzam » Tue Aug 09, 2005 11:54 am

I have read many books on peoples opinions on reincarnation. I suppose it can take on many meanings to many people.

The real idea given to reincarnation is that you have the opportunity to live more than once on earth. So i'm not talking about eternal life in heaven. I'm saying do you believe that you can live more than once?

Yes. Reincarnation hasn't been proved like it's supposed to be, but it doesn't mean it does not possibly happen.

I know that some people including famous ones (Shirley Maclaine - actress) believe that they can remember the previous lives that they have lived. They even remember details about their names; families, where they lived etc.

It is actually quite facinating. If nothing else they are good fairytales. I personally don't believe in reincarnation, but I'm not put off by people that do. 8)

I believe all Dalai Lamas and some other monks were reincarnated. And I remember when the Titanic first came out, it was a big hit in the media and stuff. There were so many books and magazines talking about it. A lot of them even found out people who said that they were on the boat in their previous lives. They were hypnotized to tell the details on that boat or things that nobody knew. It was weird to consider yourself to believe it or not :lol: .

I agree illusion most religions don't consider reincarnation possible or ethical for that matter. But I think it pays to keep an open mind and still listen to people who do believe in it and have a story to tell. Some of the stories I have read about reincarnation and peoples experience of it (if you believe what they are saying) are really interesting. It is really similar to the stories that people tell about out of body experiences.

Perhaps this is your last life :)
Perhaps reincarnation happens but you have already lived all the rest of your lives, and this is your last one... :lol:

I don't believe in anything. How can a human being believe in something? it's stupid... we are not so clever... our mind is not able to comprehend reality at that level...
We must know things and not believe in things... When you believe in something, you are doing something stupid and that could carry negative consequences.

Should I mention suicide-terrorists?

Not believing in something is also believing something, and is also stupid, and could also carry negative consequences.



:lol:

Are you boudhist? It's strange to read that opinion... why only Dalai Lamas and some other monks?

I said I believe; hence, I don't have to explain it to you if I don't feel like it. And right now, I do not feel like explaining anything to a disrespectful person. End of discussion.
