case study of reincarnation.
i'm reading another book....well, i started reading it maybe 2 years ago, and just picked it up and finished the last 20 or so pages the other day.
it's entitled Life Before Life: Children's Memories of Previous Lives by Jim. B. Tucker. it basically says what this professor of Philosophy says in this video. both that link's commentary and the book are based on the research by Dr. Ian Stevenson.
the video above is the first of 5 videos in a series about reincarnation. but ignore the music. the type of music they chose make me angry almost. it's almost as if they're adding their opinion about reincarnation in a show that is supposed to be unbiased. putting in this ridiculous, scary, Dracula sounding shit makes the idea of reincarnation seem even more crazy, dark, weird, etc., when, in reality, it could be a very reasonable explanation for some events that could not be explained by any other means. note that the book and the second link show no connection between their idea of reincarnation and the typical religious (Hinduism, Buddhism, some sects of Islam and Sikhism, etc.) sense of reincarnation.
comment. think. criticize.
