Today millions of intelligent people believe in the idea of reincarnation.This is the idea that after death the soul or life-force will eventually find its way into another body. There are many different and contradictory theories concerning how reincarnation works. One thing is sure however. If reincarnation is true, then death is not final. It is only the gateway to a new existence. Death, then, is therefore also relatively safe. There is no need to fear hell-fire or eternal judgment. This is comforting.

In Eastern cultures generally, reincarnation is accepted as a fact of life. But even in America and Europe, polls indicate a belief in reincarnation among the general public at a significant 20% to 35%. This means that well over 100 million Westerners now accept this occult doctrine.


According to recent surveys, approximately twenty-three percent of the population of the United States believes in the possibility of reincarnation. Its advocates proudly include themselves in an elitist group of "true believers" such as Plato, Socrates, Shakespeare, Arthur Conan Doyle, Ralph Waldo Emerson, Henry Ford, and even "allegedly" Jesus Christ Himself. Much of reincarnation's popularity in today's otherwise materialistic and scientifically oriented society can be credited to Hollywood's almost omnipresent influence on public views.

Many people who accept reincarnation in the West today claim that it can be scientifically proven. They usually ground their belief on past-life recall experiences, which represent the ability of certain persons to recall facts of alleged previous lives. This phenomenon occurs under two distinct forms. One is observed under hypnosis, while regressing certain persons beyond the date of birth. The other is produced by some children who spontaneously remember a previous life identity, amazing their neighbors with specific details that match those of the life of a deceased person. Could these experiences really be proofs for reincarnation?

Today approximately 30 million Americans believe in reincarnation. The process of reincarnation - continual rebirths in human bodies - allegedly continues until the soul has reached a state of perfection and merges back with its source.
