Reincarnation: The re-birth of a soul in another body.
http://www.oxforddictionaries.com...
Reincarnation is not a myth because we know that energy cannot be destroyed or created but it can be transferred as stated by the law of conservation of energy so I believe that the energy possessed by a body that is our soul or spirit must get transferred into another body after the physical death of the previous body. Therefore, consciousness survives even after death.

Do you belie that when you die you will come back. Reincarnation is bringing life back not energy. I am not a religious person the slightest bit so that might alter my desiccation but is alters it for a reason. Reincarnation is a myth

Life: The existence of an individual human being or animal.
http://www.oxforddictionaries.com...
Argument
As defined above life is existence and for existence we need energy. It is energy is what we require for life and when this energy leaves our bodies our body dies. So reincarnation is when this same energy is transferred from one body to another. There have been many cases around the world including countries like America where children claim to remember their past lives and many of the previous personalities have been identified by the description provided by the child and it has been verified by psychiatrists that the information provided by the children could not have been gained by them by other means. This clearly leads us to believe that reincarnation is not a myth.

This is a debate in which psychological and scientific proof has to be provided for whatever argument that is put forward. This is not a religious or philosophical debate.

Reasons for voting decision: Conduct - Pro. Cons behavior in this debate is appalling. Not only does he forfeit multiple rounds, but he literally quits the debate, saying he doesn't care. Terrible conduct, and for this reason, conduct goes to Pro. S&G - Tie. Both had adequate spelling and grammar. While Con did misspell a few words in his second round, it was still understandable. Arguments - Pro. Pro presented an argument that because energy is neither created nor destroyed, it must be recycled - and one aspect of recycled energy is reincarnation. Con never actually rebuts this but instead decided to quit the debate. For this reason, Pro wins arguments as the sole presenter of any substantial arguments in this debate. Sources - Pro. Con failed to utilize any sources in this debate whereas Pro did. Clear win for Pro.
