Reincarnation: do you believe in it?
“If you believe in reincarnation, you believe that after death a person’s soul is reborn in another body. Certain religions hold this belief as a central tenet, including Hinduism and Buddhism.”
“The Hindu or Buddhist doctrine that a person may be reborn successively into one of five classes of living beings (god or human or animal or hungry ghost or denizen of Hell) depending on the person’s own actions” This sounds like very good reasons to live a decent life, with being reincarnated as denizen from Hell being a possibility“.
The Hindu and Buddhists believe this, it is their doctrine, their belief and I’m not the one to say anything against it. It has been their belief since the beginning of their religion. I would imagine if I was of that faith my mother-in-law would be watching to see if I came back as a dog. Biting my mother-in-law on the leg would happen sooner or later.
The Christian Bible tells us after we die our soul goes to heaven. There is a time when the soul will get a new body. If the soul is properly accepted into Heaven it will get a new body. When you think about the idea of our earthly bodies, full of pain, cancer, heart disease, lungs all worn out and so many different things. The idea of having a new body sound very exciting. I guess I will go along with believing in reincarnation if that includes trading in my old earthly body on a new heavenly body. As I once said, “when I have my new Heavenly body and there is a golf course in heaven, there should be one, if it is Heaven, I will be playing golf every day, rain or shine.”

Golf…..heaven or hell or purgatory?
I see a tendency for Westerners to embrace Eastern dogmas as exotic and different. I once met a Japanese man who was in Greece because he had converted to the Greek Orthodox religion. He told me his assumed name was Avraam Pavlos. It can happen inversely, it seems.
Laws of nature are the only truth. Nature always demonstrates its laws. Therefore to learn about a law you must observe the nature’s demonstrations, just like Galileo did.
Reincarnation and destiny are two such laws. Destiny is still there in Bible. But reincarnation has been removed from Bible. You can search the internet to find when, why, and how reincarnation was removed from Bible.
Reincarnation can be observed easily. Take a look at some of the examples given here at the free book https://theoryofsouls.wordpress.com/ Destiny is little bit complicated. But since it is in the Bible people of Christian religion should believe it. The above book has a chapter on destiny.
You wrote – nature of reincarnation happens “depending on the person’s own actions”. But that is not correct. Destiny rules. You cannot control your actions, you do not have any freewill. Thus when, where, and in what condition you will take rebirth depends only on your destiny. Destiny can be predicted or observed by any high level yogi, with the power of divine vision (third eye), acquired via yogic meditation.
Thank you for making that more clear. I don’t always seem to have the words come out of my head, quite right.

Internet search will give you lot of examples on reincarnations. There are many videos on YouTube also. There are many books: Ian Stevenson is the classic one. Brian L. Weiss is available free on the internet – its on past life regression examples. Bowman has collected many cases of US children.
