Some initial comments...

Are you advancing any argument of some sort, or are you just making a bald and unsupported statement.

This is in the "Science, Mathematics, Medicine and Technology" forum - are you sure you have the right one?

Do you know what the "Shift" key does on your keyboard?

And finally have you been schooled in the use of the apostrophe at all?

Other than that, welcome!

Well, perhaps many people would say this is reassuring news, but not for me:
Will I remember my family, my friends, this life whatsoever?
Will I remember how to write code or play guitar?
Nope.
Same thing as death as far as I can tell. It gives me no comfort whatsoever.

Okay, the mark of woo is strong in this one, grasshopper. (To mix movie metaphors, as is my wont, and which you ain't gonna do nothing about so why not just not mention it in the first place, 'kay?)

Astral Projections


And now we've got reincarnation.

Who's betting on thread number three?

Reptilian Alien Overlords?
Pyramid Power?
World Ends in 2012?
Proof of Extra-Terrestrial Influence on the Spanish Elections of 1923?

If we'll know that we've reincarnated when we do, then if we've had past lives - how come we don't know about them?

"you will learn next time you reincarnate"? - why didn't we learn the past times we reincarnated?

Dude, I can't wait for this evidence!

And even if they did, that would suggest that the 'soul' was pulling them down- so when you died your soul would just be hanging around on the ground. Or in hell or whatever.

Darn you skeptics! Can't you let just one woo get away thinking they've shown all these cranky people at the JREF that astral projection is real?

I'm predicting that slipknot0129 never gets his postcount past 25 before disappearing forever. Any one else care to make a prediction?
