'Reincarnation...now scientifically confirmed concept'[edit]

'Reincarnation' is the religious or philosophical concept - and now scientifically confirmed concept... I added "now scientifically confirmed concept" because the book Soul Survivor strongly documents reincarnation. Reincarnation Theory & its 23 Principles/Theory of Luck (ex. Einstein returned as Watson) (http://7seals.blogspot.com ) is another strong scientific proof as is all the work of Dr. Ian Stevenson and his associates at University Of Virginia and the many psychiatrists practicing past-life regression. - Benjamin Franklin 75.74.157.29 (talk) 00:04, 22 March 2014 (UTC)

It's been removed. Please don't add it again as it is a flagrant violation of WP:NPOV. The scientific consensus is still that reincarnation doesn't happen. Dougweller (talk) 10:11, 22 March 2014 (UTC)
It's correct WP policy to remove this passage, but it's worth noting that science doesn't make claims one way or another about reincarnation, which is outside its remit, and that there is certainly no "scientific consensus" about the subject. Some scientists make such claims, but without any scientific basis for either side of the issue, they are just expressing personal beliefs. And no, a few skeptics who are not specialists in a field do not a consensus make. HGilbert (talk) 10:39, 22 March 2014 (UTC)

and the scientists are arguing for Shariah law all over the western world, which means they are duffases.

Nostradamus speaks openly about it, but it is in Early modern era latin, and a part of his private correspondence, and a difficult book to find, UCLA and Cal Berkeley have each a copy.

Scientists at Cal make weapons to harm and kill defenseless humans, how can you argue they are the boarder guards, duffasses? I have my own reincarnations, with photos and all sorts of people , then and now living. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 76.79.202.34 (talk) 01:53, 5 March 2015 (UTC)

in regards to "Rabbis who have rejected the idea"[edit]

I have added the rosh and rashba the rosh is in responsa "additanal responsas" #70 in which he argues on his grandson and the rashba was a letter writen to him in responsa #418 — Preceding unsigned comment added by 95.86.122.220 (talk) 11:21, 28 September 2014 (UTC) the rosh is better known as Asher ben Jehiel and the rashba as Solomon ben Aderet — Preceding unsigned comment added by 212.76.113.222 (talk) 20:31, 13 October 2014 (UTC)

Orphaned references in Reincarnation[edit]

I check pages listed in Category:Pages with incorrect ref formatting to try to fix reference errors. One of the things I do is look for content for orphaned references in wikilinked articles. I have found content for some of Reincarnation's orphans, the problem is that I found more than one version. I can't determine which (if any) is correct for this article, so I am asking for a sentient editor to look it over and copy the correct ref content into this article.

Reference named "Peters":

I apologize if any of the above are effectively identical; I am just a simple computer program, so I can't determine whether minor differences are significant or not. AnomieBOT 15:05, 11 January 2015 (UTC)
