I believe that when you said "that stuff" you meant "reincarnation" and/or "life"?
Well, I did not "choose to believe in reincarnation", I have knowledge about "life as never-ending continuum" from my earliest age...what I clearly wrote in my Hub.
It seems that you did not read my Hub at all, did you?
Personally I would be very afraid to live only once (I tried to) because there is no guarantee for the keys of paradise. One can always do mistake ...and finish in hell. Every human being makes dozens of sinns daily.
You are free to belive in whatever you want to, so let the others belive in whatever they think or know the truth is.
