So I'm an agnostic, don't really know what to believe, although I was brought up a Catholic, I no longer can believe Christianity is the truth (as hard as I try). But, although I don't really know if I believe in God or not, I find it hard to believe that there isn't something more to humans than just carbon etc. It seems hard to fathom that, I know that I'm here, and conscious, and have feelings, and memory, and emotions, etc. And yet, I'm just a bunch of chemicals. Doesn't make sense to me. But neither do any religious doctrines. However, I have been kinda reading about reincarnation, and found it intriguing, not only because I want to reincarnate (I find the world far to interesting to leave after only 70 years or whatever). I find it intriguing because, think about it. It really offers real justice in the world. People who are kind and just are rewarded, while bad people are punished, but they still get another chance. I don't believe all murderers are evil, and should be punished for eternity. If reincarnation does exist, they have chances to redeem themselves, and humanity. On top of that, those who suffer because of others, or just because of circumstance, have a chance at a better life in the future. Just seems like a more logical system then live, die, meet God and go to heaven or hell. Idk, just my thoughts. Any input on the matter? :)

PS, sorry for the sloppy post, but it's late, I'm tired, and not real motivated to write a structed post that'll probably get flamed any way :P

If it was real it would be cool.

"Some will sell their dreams for small desires
Or lose the race to rats
Get caught in ticking traps
And start to dream of somewhere
To relax their restless flight
Somewhere out of a memory of lighted streets on quiet nights..."

You are low class scum. The person who cleans the toilets at toco bell has more class than you. You are worthless trash, a gormless booboisie, who can only feel better about himself by mocking the illnesses of others.

Buddhism isn't a religion. It's a philosophy.

And I'd like proof that it deals with reincarnation because I haven't seen it come up before.

Anyway, I'll contribute and stop being useless.

Reincarnation is an interesting idea and I have a number of friends who believe in it strongly. I don't understand the concept of reincarnated lives based on past morality, though. What is the purpose of a negative future life if you have no memory of your past wrongdoing?

No; you are such low class trash that it's flattering to call you a gormless booboisie, feeding on the misfortunes of others. Do the world a favor and take a long walk off a short cliff. People like you are nothing more than leaches on the back of society.

You don't even know me bro. I make one crude joke and you start spewing mean names at me and suggest I go and kill myself? How very Christian of you. I think you're an uptight little leech who cruises the internet looking for people to feel morally superior to. I think you're the politically correct scum that undermines our society with arbitrary laws and nonsense regulation. You're 1984's Parsons; the stupid, suggestible man paving the way to hell with your good intentions. One of those useless do-gooders who feels obligated to chastise people on the internet to boost their low-self esteem.

And I bet you have a little penis too.

TL;DR: You're a meanie bum poo head.

You have no idea how difficult it is to have Tourette's syndrome. What you said is not only disgraceful, it's despicable.
How very Christian of you.
I'm not Christian
I think you're an uptight little leech who cruises the internet looking for people to feel morally superior to.
Than you would be wrong
I think you're the politically correct scum that undermines our society with arbitrary laws and nonsense regulation.
You obviously know nothing about me
You're 1984's Parsons; the stupid, suggestible man paving the way to hell with your good intentions.
So because I think society should look down upon those who mock people's handy caps, I am some how an authoritarian socialist? Makes perfect sense... If you don't actually think about it.
One of those useless do-gooders who feels obligated to chastise people on the internet to boost their low-self esteem.

Couldn't be further from the truth. Even if it was true I would still be classier than you.
And I bet you have a little penis too.

Usually when people say that about someoneelse it's because they themselves have a mangina.

reicarnation is the same as incarnation to be honest which christians stole from hindus and greek mythology., and some tales from native indians. The false god lugus or logos was reincarnated or incarnated into the man jesus, according to christians.
