stonicus: The real question... what if a few months after the boy was killed, the handle of that axe broke and was replaced.  Then, 3 months after that, the head of the axe was chipped and that was replaced as well.  Is it the same axe that killed him?


The answer to that question is important.

I just keep thinking that this could be a totally amazing movie to watch among close friends during Halloween season, but only IF the movie was done well. However, from what I've seen, such a movie would not be done well, or even on time. Perhaps a low-budget straight-to-DVD in Wal-Mart's $5 bin, due out in late January.

Moonfisher: BlueBox: jaylectricity: timujin: 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.

Dammit, I have a similar birthmark and was going to make the same joke.

*shakes fist*

I have a purple birthmark on my foot.  I wonder how I did that?

You must have stepped on a rusty nail, died of gangrene. I've got a big one on my belly. That must have been slow and painful. My son has one on his asscheek. I can't wait to troll him about it now.


Damn you for putting that ear worm back in my head!

GRCooper: So, if the kid was buried after he was murdered, how would he know where he was buried?


Itstoearly: If this kid was reincarnated, I could understand him able to point out his past-life killer.  But how the fark would he know where the killer buried his body?


My first thought was how would he know where the axe was buried, unless, you know, the killer buried it before killing the kid and oh shiat i've just divided by z+++CARRIER LOST+++
 
2014-05-19 11:21:45 PM

flemardo: thrasherrr: flemardo: It is clear the child was a murderer 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.

FTFY?


Sticking with what I said, once that axe goes deep in your skull you don't know where your body or the murder weapon goes or if the worms that eat you will fart in your body. The killer on the other hand would have the past life knowledge. He's a devious child, blaming an innocent man for his own crimes.


You wrote he was murdered. I changed it to murderer to match your nicely made theory

Maybe we both are having a quantum event where you typed murderer in your universe, and it shows up as murdered in my universe, and we are now communicating between universes using Fark.

So here's a new theory to add. When the kid pointed at the man who went ghost white, maybe he is an innocent man. But maybe the killer said to the innocent man before the murder, "I'm going to come back from the dead and blame this on you."

It's all moot of course, unless it was a murder/suicide because likely the murderer of this particular body is still alive.

Good question. And the answer is gruesome. He was still alive when he was buried!

About 10 years ago, I was driving through the countryside near home (UK, South coast), when my 4 year old son suddenly pointed and said "You see that farm over there - that's where I used to look after the horses". It kinda freaked out me and the Mrs at the time.

...he does have a large birthmark on his arm and back.

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

 Occam's Razor tells me that it's damn easy for an author to make up a story when his "witness" has been dead for five years.


The only person who is named and still alive didn't witness anything at all.  He claims that someone told him that story - and even that part isn't verifiable.

About this time, like a lot of New Yorkers who find themselves on the West Coast, I got interested in various aspects of California's versions of the occult. We would sit around at night when the Santa Anna winds howled outside, and ask questions of the Ouija board. I found out a lot of information on my past 9,361 human lives on this planet. My first life was as a raccoon.

"And then you were a cow. And then you were a bird. And then you were a hat", spelled the Ouija.

We said "a hat?" We couldn't figure it out. Finally we guessed that the feathers from the bird had been made into a hat. "Is this true?"

"Yes", spelled the Ouija. "Hat counts as half life."

And then?

"Hundreds and hundreds of Rabbis."

Now this is apparently my first life as a woman, which should explain quite a few things.

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

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.


Sounds about as legit as the process for deciding the next U.S. president.

I don't know about reincarnation, but my Symentec really didn't like that page.
 
2014-05-20 03:15:11 AM
As someone who believes reincarnation is probable in a complex non-traditional way...I think you have to scrutinize every case of past remembrances, almost to the point of assuming they are mistaken to just outright lying etc.. This kid could have been coached by a family member (maybe the actual murder!). How would he know where the murderer buried the axe?

Triumph: Who gets reincarnated in the same town? Or even the same galaxy?


If reincarnation and dualism were both true, that would be an interesting objection. But if materialism were true, as opposed dualism, then your objection is answered.

So, if any accounts of reincarnation can be taken seriously--let's just go with it for argument's sake--and there's a strong pattern of physical proximity from one life to the next, then it would be evidence that either materialism is true OR that entities in the dualist "spirit world" operate under similar spatial constraints as in the physical world (perhaps they experience gravity, or the speed of light is a limit there, too).

We should be skeptical of reincarnation, of course. But if it turned out to be verifiable, it has fascinating implications.

monsignorguru: 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"


Unless they're too young to know much history. As evidenced by:

linker3000: About 10 years ago, I was driving through the countryside near home (UK, South coast), when my 4 year old son suddenly pointed and said "You see that farm over there - that's where I used to look after the horses". It kinda freaked out me and the Mrs at the time.

But anyway, wasn't the twist that the boy had been dead the whole time or somesuch?

For whatever it's worth: I actually remember arriving in my body at about age 3. It was early morning, I opened my eyes and I was standing in the doorway of a bedroom. A PINK bedroom, with small white furniture. "Oh fark." was my first thought. "Oh fark, I'm a GIRL!" was my second thought. I was not happy. I don't remember anything about a previous life, but I do know that I did have one, and that I was male in that previous life. I turned around and there was a woman in the adjacent bedroom, leaning toward a mirror over a dresser. She was putting on lipstick. I asked her what day it was. She replied it was Tuesday. I understood that she was the parent of this child, but I didn't feel like I knew her. Everything was strange for a while until I figured out who was who, who these people were, and what my own name was.

Now, I'm a fairly logical person who embraces science. I don't believe in a god or an afterlife; all the evidence suggests that we get this one shot and that the end is final. But yet, I have this set of memories that seem to go against all of that. It's a dichotomy that I've wrestled with my whole life since then. I can't explain it. I don't know what it means. But I know it happened, and it was not a dream or a hallucination. I have no idea how to prove it using the scientific method. I wish I could.

NMTurtlelady: But I know it happened, and it was not a dream or a hallucination.


Except you can't possibly know that... Our memories are pretty horrible in general, but when you're talking very early childhood ones, they're even worse... And, just the act of recalling them actually modifies them, so it's very easy to alter them over time to become something completely different, yet you remain convinced it's the same memory you've always had and it's absolutely real... The best thing you can learn is to not fully trust your own senses or memory, because they lie to you all the time... (But, if you take that to too far an extreme, you end up like the man who rules the universe from the Hitchhiker's Guide, who can be certain of nothing at all...)

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.
