I have absolutely no belief in Reincarnation.

Though I do wish I could reincarnate, so I could become One Life Wiser.....

In my country, a whole sect believes in it, around 7% of population.

Or are you simply advancing the principle of openmindedness?...

I already gave my position much earlier in the thread.

Also I don't even like the idea of it being 'open-mindedness', that sounds way too much like a request to 'be nice' which is just wearing weakness on one's sleeve. Its more like probing the question of why intellectual consistency so reliably fails in this range. Intellectual consistency is something I would think flows in the same direction as self-interest and yet I see it consistently fall down with people when it gets challenging. No one has to do anything different, I'm sure no one will over anything I say, but it seems to illustrate that we're incorrigible, that self-interest can't even properly govern human behavior, and that the things we either pay avid attention to or refuse to pay adequate attention to are governed ultimately by alogical causes that we'd never begin to understand. The only layer of that which makes a certain degree of sense is obeying the dictates of conformity to get things out of society, but there are points after which even that fails to be a fully satisfying explanation.

But I am not sure why you are telling me this?
Could you dumb it down for me and tell me where I actually fit into the last two posts by you to me?...

ciao... :wink: 8)

Nah, I'll pass on the dumbing down thank you.

What do you have to do with it? Just what you said that I was thinking about, and then that you gave me a response that I responded to.

I'd rather be shot by a hundred bullets than kill somebody in some bullshit war because I was told I had to. ;)

But not believing Reincarnation only means we're not coming back here, right?
We might have something after death?

Brrrr...
That is the worse possible scenario...
Eternal what?
Fluffy clouds with a G rating?

I'd rather go the other way...
The place with a G-string rating...
And meet more interesting and sexy people... :mrgreen:

But nothing, repeat nothing beats oblivion...<sigh> :heart: :mrgreen:

Victims of atrocities frequently believe in that credo.
