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.

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

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

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.

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.

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.

An acquaintance misled me into sitting through a performance by the Falun Dafa's performing arts arm.  Only three of the dance pieces seemed to be overtly critical of the CCP.  Both of the vocal performances, however (if the opera translation was to be trusted), were blistering, going on about steadfastness in the face of the red beast and the like.  A white-male-Asian-female hosting duo in formal wear rambled on through wooden, propagandistic monologues in alternating English and Mandarin.  Throughout the performances, lurid, pixelated images of the cosmos and of stereotypically Chinese landscapes (pointy mountains beside a river, ornate palaces, etc.) were projected on a giant screen behind the stage.  Someone near me in the audience smelled strongly of Lysol.

This is actually a very good point. When people say they were reincarnated it has always been multiple lives that all revolve around shiat they already know. Even before we discovered exoplanets, someone should have past life experience as a silicon based life form that lived in a methane lake.

But nope. You can't even find someone whose past life was the worlds shiattiest Masai who was stomped to death at age 9.
