A story from a guy who is publicizing a book he wrote about children who are reincarnated, which was supposedly told to him by a doctor who is conveniently dead and published in a newspaper publication for a Chinese cult.

This story just reeks of credibility.

If reincarnation is real, that dead doctor may see this story and come forward to corroborate.

I'm curious if this would be considered "evidence" of reincarnation.  You know, for those who value evidence.

Who gets reincarnated in the same town? Or even the same galaxy?
 
2014-05-19 05:45:14 PM  
I'm convinced this is true, because the killer's face "turned white" when confronted with the evidence, according to the article. Brown people trying to get away with murder.

He was born with a long, red birthmark on his head. The Druse believe, as some other cultures do, that birthmarks are related to past-life deaths. When the boy was old enough to talk, he told his family he had been killed by a blow to the head with an axe.

I have a birthmark on the side of my knee, probably took an arrow to it.

Well, here's how it works for figuring out who the Dalai Lama has reincarnated as:

a committee of sorts comprised of High Lamas and Tibetan governmental officials begin the search for the reincarnated tulku by consulting the Nechung Oracle, the official seer of Tibet. In the past, the High Lamas next traveled to Lhamo Lhatso, made sacred to the Dalai Lamas by the promise of a spirit who resided there, Palden Lhamo, to protect their reincarnation. There, the High Lamas meditated beside the lake and experienced visions and dreams that guided their search. If the Dalai Lama had been cremated, the direction the smoke blew was also noted with great interest. Typically, it takes two to three years to find the reincarnated Dalai Lama, although with the latest, the 14th, it took four.

When the High Lamas believed they had found the reincarnated Dalai Lama, they conducted a simple test. Several articles, only some of which were owned by the previous Dalai Lama, are placed in front of the child. If he chooses the correct items, this is read as a sign, along with the previous signs and some set of secret signs, that he is the tulku.

Next, three of the former Dalai Lama's servants who knew him well are asked to confirm the child's identity; other officials are also required to sign off on it, too. If more than one boy is identified in this manner and a clear choice cannot be made, the names are placed in a vase, and the name drawn out is that of the person that will become the next Dalai Lama.

Upon formal confirmation, the Dalai Lama is traditionally taken with his family to the Drepung Monastery in Lhasa to begin his studies. Except for the 4th Dalai Lama, who was born in Mongolia, the Dalai Lamas were all born in Tibet.

Hearsay is not evidence, it occasionally leads to evidence, but is never the evidence. The entire story could be (and likely is) completely made up. I value evidence... not hearsay.

I have never seen evidence that supports the belief in reincarnation. The closest thing to reincarnation that I can think of is simply the fact that the materials here on Earth are continually being collected and used by forms of life and then later releasing those materials back into the environment to be used again and again. Of course, that isn't anything like what is generally considered "reincarnation"... it's just the closest it comes to existing.

I feel sorry for the poor bastard in the future who realizes he is my reincarnation. He'll be bored to tears. "I spent four hours a day on some trashy website called....'Fark.com'?"

I have a birthmark under my arm on my side, which means I am Jesus.

It is clear the child was murdered in his past life. Only the murderer would know where the body and the axe was buried. The child should pay for his crimes, I think banning him from having chocolate milk and strawberry milk should do it.

It seems in the West, when someone believes they were reincarnated, they always were some famous from history.

It's never "I was a twelve year old stable boy, kicked in the head by an Ox"

The Druze are NOT Christians. They are descendants of Jethro, the father-in-law of Moses. They have more in common with Judaism than with Christianity or Islam. They pretend to be Muslims so that the Arabs won't slaughter them like the Persians did to the Bahai in Iran.

Do you live in a court of law? If you mother tells you that your aunt said she got a new car, do you demand that she prove it because you can't believe hearsay? If so, you are a douchebag.

I read about a doctor in India doing this as well.
I suspect these doctors are some of the worlds more prolific serial killers
They travel around offing folks, swing back through town a few years later, mess with impressionable kids and get the murder pinned on someone else.

devious.

No, but if my mother tells me my aunt said she is Jesus Christ, I am going to probably assume that one or both of them has had a psychotic break before leaping to the conclusion that the facts underlying the statement are correct.

Actually I would probably have to assume *I* had the psychotic break, seeing as both my mom and her sister are long dead. But you get the idea: extraordinary claims, and all that
