At Last, Proof of Reincarnation

You can just tell that in her mind's eye, it is not August 2003, and that's not a lily pad.

18-month-old Talea sits on a leaf of a water lily at the public garden Palmengarten in Frankfurt Germany, Friday, Aug. 1, 2003.

It's September of 1939, and she's in her Stuka, strafing the Poles.

First time visitor to House Hraka? Wondering if everything we produce could possibly be as brilliant/stupid/evil/pedantic/insipid/inspired as the post you just read? Check out the Hraka Essentials, the (mostly) reader-selected guide to Hraka's best posts, and decide for yourself.

Don't forget; strafe is from the German verb strafen, meaning to punish. What worse punishment than to have my perishing German ancestors as neighbors all these centuries?

Well, not sure of your country, but to my mind Luxembourg and Belgium have the worst locations.

REINCARNATION is bull shit...when people die, there's nothing left of them. why the hell don't people understand that? If heaven/hell/reincarnation were true, that means that it should work for ALL organisms;including insects, bacteria and plants

ITs just some made up bullshit from religions. when you die, that's afterlife

Who ever said that reincarnation does not apply to living creatures aside from humans? I, for one, know quite a few different people who are of that belief.

Funny how so many people can remember things that happened to them and then realize how it didn't actually happen to them, but instead to someone else. To deny reincarnation would be labeling several thousands of people as deeply insane.

On the flip side of things, one could say that a person denying reincarnation is deeply insane.

I personally find them to be in something of a state of disillusion or denial....

I think that reincarnation makes perfect sense, if you are bad in a previous life you have a bad life, if you were good in a previous life then you have a good life. That explains why bad things happen sometimes to good people, and good things sometimes happen to bad people. Reincarnation is the most talked about religion. Why if it is not true, do people then keep reminesing things and going to places they have never been too and knowing everything about it, of reminesing about people they never heard of in very good detail, then the people are just like they reminesed. Reincarnation is not a theory it is a FACT. But the reason people cannot remember it, is when they reincarnate they go into a diferent body with a diferent mind a a diferent memory bank.

I think that perhaps James Johnson is a bit confused. Reincarnation is not the most talked about religion, it is not a religion at all. Reincarnation, although part of a number of religions, is not in and of itself a religion. Secondly, how does this answer the question of why bad things happen to good people? According to his explanation, if you were good in a previous life you will have a good life. If you are a good person, then you must have been good in a previous life, so why are bad things now happening. I think perhaps a bit more research into the understanding of reincarnation is warranted. At the end of the day, I think that many might find the doctrine of reincarnation deeply unfulfilling. Might I suggest grace?

I've been reading about this and other related topics for some time now. Sometimes I believe, sometimes not. Must be because I am gtetting older and my mortality is beginning to show. It's hell in your mid fifties and you can't do the things you could a few years ago. I wish I knew. There are millions of us baby boomers out "here" who are searching for answers. Not going to happen...the answers that is. Shit!
