[Please note: I no longer support the views expressed in this article. I think reincarnation is not a plausible concept but I have left the following for informational purposes.] The question whether reincarnation is real or not has caused great controversies and debates. It can be said without exaggeration that opinions differ greatly on this question, leading to heated discussions. On one side there are scientists who reject the question for lack of evidence. Some scientists even go so far to state that the idea of reincarnation is entirely unnecessary because it is not possible to be measured and tested according to scientific procedure. On the other side, we have mostly religiously minded people who accept the notion of reincarnation as part of their religious worldview. But who is right? Finding a definite answer to the question whether there is life after death or not is nearly impossible. But we can look at the evidence that various researchers present and evaluate whether it supports or dismisses the theory. Therefore, this article will present reincarnation stories and supposed reincarnation proof in order to help you form an opinion about the subject matter.

Proof of reincarnation?
There is none.
The reincarnation evidence presented is not conclusive enough to proove the theory of reincarnation. Only one thing was proven: that children had birthmarks which resembled wounds of a deceased person. To draw the conclusion that this is a result of a life after death is therefore not acceptable.
The initial question of this article can easily be answered: Probably not. And attempting to answer the question if reincarnation is possible with a definite yes would not be credible.
Luckily, many hypotheses in this field of study have sparked the interest of the scientific community. One of which is the hypothesis that a non-physical part of a human being exists. Further research into these areas might help to piece the different insights together and form a theory out of many hypotheses that might answer the question once and for all.
What do you think, does reincarnation exists?
