Has the subject of reincarnation ever been addresed on this site? I'm curious what the different religions' viewpoints are. I was brought up to believe in it. Since becoming an atheist, however, I've been analyzing it. Unfortunately most of the books out there act as if you've never heard of the idea before. It's kind of like reading Dr. Seuss when you're used to Dr. Freud. Does anyone else believe it, and if so, how do you think it works? I've had a few bizarre experiences that could be explained rationally, but not easily. These experiences are what keep me from whole-heartedly accepting the theory that it's a way of denying the finality of death.
