    Has There Ever Been A Convincing Case Of Someone Claiming To Remember A Past Life?

    Many consider that Jenny Cockell's story is convincing. She is the British woman who remembered a life in Malahide near Dublin, and dying, distressed at leaving her eight children. She found the ruins of her old home and sought out most of the children. Although as Catholics they were reluctant to believe in reincarnation, most were won over when she recalled incidents and shared memories that no one but their mother could have known. She wrote a book about her search for her past life.

    Another intriguing case is that of the young Scottish boy, Cameron, who from being a toddler told stories of living on the island of Barra. The story was told in a hub by Nell Rose, along with that of another boy who seemed to have a very convincing story of a life as a pilot killed in wartime.

    Some aspects of these stories are inexplicable. If they are not examples of re-incarnation, they are certainly evidence that a lot of our thoughts and memories come from sources which at present we do not understand at all.

    Yes, there are as many convincing cases as there are 1) good actors, 2) good storytellers, and 3) gullible people.

      When it comes from little kids, however, they are unlikely to be either good actors or good storytellers.

    From a biblical perspective (yeah I know, I can hear you all groaning now, haha) - No.

    Fallen angels are able to pose as people whom were once living, but are now long dead. When a person "remembers" a past life, they are essentially being given information through a first-person observer: A demonic entity. A third of the angels followed Satan at the fall, and that is a lot of fallen angels.

    "And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light. Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also be transformed as the ministers of righteousness; whose end shall be according to their works." - 2nd Corinthians chapter 11, verses 14 and 15.

    Since these fallen angels have no need to eat, sleep, or whatever... What else do they have to do with their time except deceive people of the truth? It doesn't even have to be a compelling lie, just anything you want to hear that will lead you away from the truth according to the bible. The truth being (according to the bible), that when we die, we don't come back in a flesh and blood body: No reincarnation.

    It doesn't surprise me in the least, that these entities who neither eat or sleep, trick people into believing that they are reincarnated from the lives of people that demons have observed in the past.

    "And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment:" - Hebrews chapter 9, verse 27.

    It might sound compelling and nice to think that we come back in repetitive cycles, and see other relatives from "past lives", but I for one do not want to come back here at all. Why would I? So I can possibly die a painful death, all over again? No thanks. Once is enough for me, and I look forward to heaven.

    Plus, I would dread to think that I have slept with a sibling (or for that matter, another close relative) of a past life, unbeknownst to either of us. I would have to live a celibate life, just to avoid that nonsense... lol.

      It also might sound compelling and nice to think that we go to heaven and live in bliss and harmony forever... But I for one believe that heaven is an allegory for a human future without violence, hate, or anger... Right here on Earth.

      There is a utopia in the end times described in the book of Revelation, but it is a false-utopia. Anyone who doesn't want to go along with the program seem to get killed. How many Christians will have to die for your utopia to be a reality?

      ... What? Never mind, mate, I respect your beliefs but I think we're on two different wavelengths here. "My" utopia is one in which all humans were more like Jesus, which would lead to a Heaven on Earth. Not sure why any Christians would have to die.

      Wasn't John the Baptist supposed to be a reincarnation of the prophet Elijah?

    I can't lay claim to the truth of making a convincing case about claiming to remember a past life, but the story I posted  “Was I out-of-body in Sicily?” drew a lot of attention. I know it happened - but was it really out of body or what?  You decide. Read the hub - by Russell-d. David Russell
