We arnt all reincarnated. Some souls are fresh. Some have been around for a while, and some " like mine" are so old they dont want to do it anymore. I'm tired and this is my last go around.
I'm tired too.
i actually don't believe in reincarnation, but i find the subject quite interesting so here's my theory. There is a species we haven't discovered yet (probably several) that one by one, are reincarnating into humans instead of other animals or plants or whatever....don't judge if it makes no sense...i just thought of it.
Rats reincarnate as politicians so that may answer your question.
Excellent point. I don't believe in reincarnation, and this observation puts serious question into the legitimacy of that theory.
The world population is increasing doesn't mean anything? Population increases steadily because people live longer and human produces more. But the fact is that everyday, every minute, every seconds, there's death and birth occur instantaneously. This is the constant rate of birth/death cycle. All things are being created equal.
I consider myself Christian, but with all the people who remember past lives, like that little kid who was some pilot that died and knows how he died and who his friends are, sometimes I wonder if God somehow let them live another life.<br />
I liked the animal idea, that would work with the belief in karma and all that. I guess that would be a sign the more souls are working their way up the moral ladder or whatever it is.<br />
But I would think that some souls are new and fresh-that's why some people can't remember any past lives. And other people, those who may be considered wise, or people who are aged beyond their years, or people who remember past lives, are those that have been around more than once.<br />
For all that religious stuff, I'm not really clear about it all, I just pray that my God will answer my questions and explain everything if and when I go to heaven. Like how are cavemen/evolution/dinosaurs in the picture? But everytime I start to think he isn't real, some little miracle happens. Not all of my prayers are answered, but enough are for me to know the Lord is real.
Alright, listen there are more planets with life just like ours, as there are grains of sand in the world. The ultimate goal of life is to develop love, when you fail God send you back, to this planet or to the others.
Maybe those have passed away within 10 years may be reincarnated. We all don't know. Life is life.
very deeply thinking answers and very intelligent discussion on the topic ladies and gentlemen. it is interesting discussion on topic of reincarnation. why bother u all with my theory. thank you all for ur learned views. i dont believe in karma or rebirth though..
we are all a part of the essence of god! life is God experiencing! all life is God experiencing!<br />
That is how we are created in the image and likeness of God! God allows us to create ourselves!<br />
A subject that requires lots of time and space! <br />
THAT'S MY TAKE ON THIS
There are various belief systems about animal reincarnation or transmigration as it is sometimes called. Over 500 million people of the Hindu religion believe that one can be reincarnated as either a human or an animal. However, their doctrine is unclear as to whether this is the result of karma or the natural progression of the soul. One particular doctrine believes that the soul or jiva begins life in an extremely simple form inhabiting a concurrently very simple body. As the jiva grows and reincarnates from one life to the next the body it becomes increasingly complex, and when the soul has finally grown into a human body the concept of karma comes into play.
very good explanation! very pragmatic and studied explanation baby.
That's why so many other species are going extinct -- we're using up their souls
Like Undertone suggested, if reincarnation is true, why is it that everybody was a big shot in a former life? Where are the folks who were bums and losers in former lives?
How about being reincarnated into another world?
every possibility man.
ONE of the reasons why population is growing, as far as I know, is that this is a crucial time in Earth's cycles of evolution; and more and more souls want to be present in the physical - both to take advantage of the opportunities for growth, and to try to get settled with their karma, and clear their way.
Maybe we are all the same person and time does not function the same as we think, so we can live one life after another yet they play out side by side in the time line. Like Maybe I was you last life.... or you were your mother a million lives ago. Or the guy you past on the street in five life times to come. Not saying this is how it is, but it would be weird, and population would make no difference if there was only one.
the bible says it is appointed unto man once to die and then the judgement.
I've heard that there are people alive today then the cumulative total of everyone in history.<br />
Do you think that you know the number of the souls that exist??? All life has an associated soul.<br />
This isn't the only planet in the universe. This isn't even the only universe. Planets are always being created and destroyed and so beings have to be reborn on other planets.
Because of all of the old souls as well as the first time arounders. If people would limit their family size to one old soul and one new soul the population would not keep increasing.
