For the first time I actually agree with you.

claremont: No, I don't believe in it. I believe the human body has an expiry date, and it expires in full when it reaches that date. I don't believe in such things like reincarnation, golden unicorn, talking snakes, burning bushes e.t.c. They are tales-by-moonlight stories.
Same view as me. Firstly there is very little clarification of what reincarnated-spirit, soul , ghost. How does it transfer from body to body. Why more people on earth, not a fixed number recycling. How are we fundamentally different from animals or plants? Do they reincarnate too? Why are we more scared of a dead body than the living one?
Some explanation of the reasons for claims of reincarnation are as follows;
1. Resemblances to parents or late relatives - genes, animals and plants are similar.
2. Beliefs of relatives being alive after death -dreams, misidentifications, hallucinations.
3. Belief in life after death also triggered by myths, near death experiences, people in coma experiencing weird phenomena. Our inability to accept the truth of our own fragility, our inflated self esteem that we are immortal, claims of being above all living things so we cannot just die like that etc.
4. We also use reincarnation to exploit and control others eg pastors threaten hellfire
The fact remains that life finishes when we die. We are subject to the same natural laws as all living things. Our existence is extended through our children's via genes and we split these genes to multiply in new children. So our existence continues as genes in our children; that is why being childless is si so painful because one reaches an evolutionary dead end.

stephenponti: Minion- Do you believe in reincarnation?
The bible is not a book of historical facts. It is replete with myths allegories and mysteries. It is. Written by different authors with different views. Example: ecclesiates says there is no life after death-you would be dead longer Han you live. In one of the gospels, people do not return to earth until the last day. Also remember is an ancient book collection written thousands of years ago in Jewish and Greek cultural background. They were written for spiritual enlightenment, not as science or history.

*Kails*:Hmmm deep thinking.I never thought of that before.
|Re: Do You Believe In Reincarnation: Discuss by dasparrow: 8:30am On Dec 19, 2012|
No, I do not believe in reincarnation because it goes against what my bible teaches.
|Re: Do You Believe In Reincarnation: Discuss by Okiki_Oluwa(m): 9:18am On Dec 19, 2012|
I don't believe yet till I m convinced with real proofs (if it's possible). But there's dis Yoruba Mythology of 'Abiku'. It's believed dat if a child dies & some marks are inscribed on d body, d child may b reborn by d same mother, with d same marks in order 2 confirm reincarnation.
bojar: If you believed in re-incarnation, then your tombstone should read "BRB" and not "RIP"u jst cracked my ribs.

folanaira:lmao. Funny how you just messed yourself up. Many people believe everyone goes to heaven or hellfire at death. Do you even know what you are defending at all? How does this long pile of emptiness you just posted support that claim and yet support your reincarnation claims?
If everyone goes to heaven/paradise or hell at death for eternity as muslims and most christians believe, at what time do they get reincarnated? Think bro.
- First you completely ignore a direct quotation from your Bible (the quotation included the exact chapter and verse) and claim that you don't know where it is seen in the bible. Then you take the interpretation of that quotation and pose it as a question to a completely different quote that suitably supports your argument. How does that make any sense?I expected you to add bible verses to this post supporting your claim as a reasonable person would, not rant like the average fanatic.
Second, your quote said "the SOUL that is sinning will die". It says "soul", not body. This is correct, the soul that is sinning will die. But it gets several chances to reincarnate in the flesh (body) repeatedly until it rights its ways. Each life is a manifestation of the Creators mercy that you can try again. But yes, the "soul" will die once "if it is sinning" and this happens in the end. And so your quote refutes nothing of what has been said.reincarnation springs directly from the belief that the soul is immortal and cannot die. The bible didnt say the soul would die 'only after several reincarnations'. Ezekiel was talking to the people about their present actions and the fact that God is the owner of life. Death is the wage of sin and every human has fallen short.
Third, go and read the quoted verses, it is in your bible. Don't be so bull headed as to not even try!I have read the verses bro. It still doesnt support reincarnation anymore than calling the devil 'the god of this age' makes him the creator.
- First, according to your bible, God created Adam and Eve (Adam and Eve ONLY), where did Cane's wife come from?Good question. First of all, the bible never said Adam and Eve had only sons. Why do you suppose they had no daughters? Did you ever pause to think that? Absence of evidence isnt evidence of absence. Cain obviously took one of his sisters as his wife. At that point in human history, mankind was still close to perfection and genetic effects of interbreeding would have been negligible.
-Second, if we do reincarnate, where to souls that are recently departed go? Can we see this other world? Do we know how many souls are there waiting for another sojourn on earth?when we die, we are dead. Our spirit or life force returns to our maker. If he chooses to restore that life, it is what the bible terms resurrection.
-The second set of questions should give you an answer to your question. If there were 2 billion souls here on earth then, there must have been 5 billion or more in the beyond waiting on their next incarnation. Now that there are more people here on earth (7 billion) then there must be less waiting on an incarnation.now this is absolutely hilarious. Until the 19th century, the world population had never been up to 2billion. It has been increasing over time and is expected to increase still. If there is such a thing as reincarnation, it means the <2billion souls then alive are souls that have been recycled. All of a sudden 5billion more are added. How many of these added souls have lived before if the former 2billion have been recycled have been recycled over time?
Could it be some souls do not get reincarnated at all, while some get to come back in a short while as their grandchildren?
You talk about that which you do not know as if they were proven.
What is wisdom? and of what world does the quote refer to? Don't gamble away your existence on blind faith. It is important to seek the truth bravely and with your eyes and ears wide open.If anyone can be called blind its confused persons like you. You do not want to believe that we are new beings resulting from procreation, but you would like to believe that there were five billion souls awaiting reincarnation.
At what point were these waiting souls created or start to exist?
If they were created why cant they be destroyed?
Examine your beliefs youngman. Human philosophy is confusion and it would never lead you anywhere.

First, for you to call me a fanatic is laughable. A visit to webster will do you plenty good.
Fanatic: "A person filled with excessive and single-minded zeal, esp. for an extreme religious or political cause."
Of course, you can never be convinced that your "excessive clinging to the Bible and your demands that anything that isn't provable therein doesn't exist" is just that: fanatic.
But thankfully, each one can draw his own conclusions.
I would respond to you but there is no point in this exercise. You are clearly convinced about your opinions and biblical verses so I leave it there and wish you well.

How about you, do you believe?

|Re: Do You Believe In Reincarnation: Discuss by Nobody: 4:16pm On Dec 24, 2012|
coretechng: Hmmm deep thinking.I never thought of that before.
|Re: Do You Believe In Reincarnation: Discuss by Nobody: 4:18pm On Dec 24, 2012|
Ok....I get it. Thus why many Rastas, Hindus, Buddhists; etc refuse to eat meat citing it as cannibalism. See, you don't always talk off the wall after all.
of course you would quote me and feign confusion.

why do you mean i dont always talk off the wall I always talk ON the the wall. it is just that you have selective hearing. not my fault.
|Re: Do You Believe In Reincarnation: Discuss by Nobody: 2:57am On Dec 28, 2012|
Me and the entire nl abi?
|Re: Do You Believe In Reincarnation: Discuss by PAGAN 9JA(m): 3:41pm On Dec 28, 2012|
no. you and the entire akata/oyinbo gang.
|Re: Do You Believe In Reincarnation: Discuss by Negro_Ntns(m): 8:23am On Dec 29, 2012|
You are a bad face for paganism. I have chosen to watch this topic from sideline but I was hoping that if anyone would lead the contributions with educative and informative posts you should be in the top 5 rank, however your contributions are shallow and off mark. You excel at attacking good contributions than you do sharing knowledge and ingenuity.
I am challenging you, for all the noise you make attacking cultural beliefs, to now use this great opportunity to teach and inform us on the dark mysteries of reincarnation.
|Re: Do You Believe In Reincarnation: Discuss by Nobody: 1:59pm On Dec 29, 2012|
you dey crace!! well i can bet the gentleman who i have quoted below is not
an "akata" (which your ppl created btw) nor an oyinbo...and yet notice the objections.

|Re: Do You Believe In Reincarnation: Discuss by Nobody: 7:55pm On Aug 15, 2013|
Yes I do.
Came to this belief after much thought about our place in life.
The Heaven/Hell concept doesn't provide much closure after death.
