This Reincarnation has been mentioned by a media organization:

'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)

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)

Removing reference to the Indus Valley[edit]

There is sharp disagreement about how far the Indus Valley civilisation shared the beliefs of later Hinduism. And about whether the Vedas endorse a belief in reincarnation. The writing system of the Indus Valley has not been read and may not even have been a full writing system. Even though the claim seems to have a source, the source would be going against almost all other sources. The reference treated a minority view as if it were generally accepted. --GwydionM (talk) 10:12, 15 March 2016 (UTC)

Removed Rig-veda references, suggestion to add proper ones[edit]

Quoted Rig-veda verses are not accurate. RV 10:90 is Purusha shukta and it is not about reincarnation, nor the given text is to be found in Purusha shukta translation. Rig Veda 10:16.1-4 is about funeral rites, when soul of the cremated is sent to Pitrloka, the planet of forefathers, where it truly does get a new form, but is not subject to law of karma, it does not create good or bad karma anymore, thus it cannot be considered to be a regular human life, but the kind of an afterlife.

Reincarnation was mentioned in Ṛgveda 3.1.20-21 "The knower of birth is hidden in every birth" (janmañ-janman nihito jātavedāḥ) and Ṛgveda 4.54.2 "For you first impel immortality to the gods worthy of the sacrifice as their highest share; just after that, o Savitṛ, you reveal your gift: lives following in succession for the sons of Manu" (anūcīnā jīvitā mānuṣebhyaḥ). — Preceding unsigned comment added by Miodrag1963 (talkcontribs) 00:49, 16 March 2016 (UTC)

Lead sentence[edit]

@Motivação: Is "aspect of" superfluous? Per the main article discussion, only an aspect of a living being is believed to reincarnate: soul or consciousness or etc, depending on the tradition. For direct WP:RS support, see Encyclopedia Britannica, which reads, "Reincarnation, also called transmigration or metempsychosis, in religion and philosophy, rebirth of the aspect of an individual that persists after bodily death—whether it be consciousness, mind, the soul, or some other entity—in one or more successive existences".
