Reincarnation

Reincarnation.jpg

Reincarnation means "to come again in the flesh", and refers to the belief that, after a person's death, their soul may be born again as another person, animal or other creature. Belief in reincarnation is common in many Eastern religions, including Hinduism, Sikhism and Buddhism. Less commonly, certain Jewish sects have believed in either common or extremely rare reincarnation. Many liberal new agers also believe in reincarnation, amongst other lies. However Hebrews 9:27 refutes any possibility of reincarnation: "It is appointed unto man once to die and then comes the judgment." So once again, liberals are deceiving themselves and others.

Since there is no objective evidence that reincarnation has ever happened or that there even exists a mechanism by which it could happen, belief in reincarnation is based on wishful thinking. Believers in reincarnation counter that reincarnation has not been disproved to their satisfaction. However, that counterargument has two problems. First, it involves impermissibly shifting the burden of proof. Second, since doctrines concerning reincarnation tend to be constructed to be unfalsifiable, the fact that they have not been disproved to someone's satisfaction proves nothing.

Notable claims

Barbro Karlén

Barbro Karlén, a Swedish woman who identifies as the reincarnation of Anne Frank, has claimed that she could recall memories of her alleged past life since the age of two.[1] Despite the coincidences perceived to be proof of reincarnation, there has yet to be a scientific confirmation of the legitimacy of the claim.
