No. But nobody has provided a plausible mechanism of action. Many have tried, all have failed. Dualism is no longer considered tenable.

RE: How unlikely is reincarnation?
Why would reincarnation even matter? Nothing of you exists after being reincarnated anyway so what is the point? Your memories, experiences, personality do not transition so it doesn't matter.

Even if you could prove it, it would mean nothing as there still would not be a life after death.

Someone should tell the Christians and Muslims. Consider

I'd say it's a 99.999.... unlikelyhood chance.

What even is it that is supposed to be reincarnated these days? "souls" where do these things come from? Or is it some metaphysical consciousness connection? There's nothing that can really take the form in this way

You can always tell a theist, but you can't tell him much.

I have the unfortunate, sneaking suspicion that I was Brian.

Yeah I would also say the population growth is a big contradiction to the idea

....unless there's life elsewhere that's keeping the balance :O lol just playin. I'd say: extremely unlikely. We see how natural selection works and it's logical that natural selection would exist elsewhere. This "balancing act" doesn't exist in natural selection and therefore doesn't accompany the reincarnation idea.

RE: How unlikely is reincarnation?
If we will be "re-incarnated", then fragments of us will end up in various other life forms.

One thing about this world - everything gets recycled, one way or another, quickly or verrrry slowly, sooner or later.

Everything gets broken down into fragments before being recycled.

The chances that anything remains intact and just assumes a different form are next to nil.
