Never thought about it. My mother believed in reincarnation and I took after her for a bit. By the time I was able to really consider life after death I pretty much instantly knew that you just die. Lights out, nobody home kind of thing.

I spent some time really trying to buy into the idea of reincarnation. Read a lot of things about it and wanted to believe it. I just couldn't get there.

When I gave up on being Catholic...couldn't get there either...I thought I HAD to believe in something - religious or spiritual. It was a relief to find out that I didn't have to after all.

See here they are the bruises some were self-inflicted and some showed up along the way. - JF

I find the idea pleasing, but no more plausible.
