Reincarnation Research – Science, Pseudo-Science & Scientism

  1. 1. The Mystery How can children know that which they don’t know? Spontaneous past-life memories
  2. 2. Past-life memories Dr. Ian Stevenson - BG 2.22 Four types of evidences: • Recollections • Recognitions • Behaviors • Birthmarks
  3. 3. Naresh Kumar Raydas’ Case • Born in Baj Nagar, UP • Past-life as Mushir Ali Shah in Kakori 5 km away • At age 2, started saying “Kakori”, “Kakra” & offering Namaaz
  4. 4. Naresh Kumar Raydas’ Case • Called Fakir as Abba (not Baba), identified as his son • Recognized mother Najima, brother Nasim, even unborn sister Sabiah • Depression in chest
  5. 5. Parental disapproval “Hindu parents of a child who claimed to be a Moslem generally tried to take measures which they hoped would erase the child's previous-life memories. The techniques used included simply ignoring the child's claims, teasing, piercing the child's ear, turning the child on a potter's wheel, and taking the child to an exorcist out of fear that the child would go mad. One Moslem family tried a combination of rotating the child counter-clockwise on a millstone (to "undo" his past-life memories), tapping him on the head, and beating him.” - Antonia Mills, Journal of Scientific Exploration
  6. 6. Fraud? Motives? Money? Fame? Religious belief?
  7. 7. Fraud? - Counter-motive Embarrassing behavior of children eg Jasbir Singh
  8. 8. Pseudo-Science? “Neither self-delusion, intentional fraud, peer pressure, nor coincidence could explain how the children Ian investigated could have known all that they knew about strangers who’d died before they were born.” - Tom Shroder, Editor, Washington Post
  9. 9. Pseudo-Science? [Stevenson had] “painstakingly and unemotionally collected a detailed series of cases, in which the evidence for reincarnation is dif cult to understand on any other grounds. He has placed on record a large amount of data that cannot be ignored.” - Journal of the American Medical Association
  10. 10. The White Crow? “If you wish to upset the law that all crows are black, you mustn’t seek to show that no crows are; it is enough to prove one single crow to be white.” - Harvard psychologist William James
  11. 11. Science expands at the fringes Relativity and Quantum physics developed because scientists confronted the evidence that classical physical couldn’t explain
  12. 12. Unquestioning faith in science “Tell a man that there are 300 billion stars in the universe, and he'll believe you.... Tell him that a bench has wet paint upon it and he'll have to touch it to be sure.” - Albert Einstein
  13. 13. Knowledge & Humility "To know that we know what we know, and to know that we do not know what we do not know, that is true knowledge.” - Copernicus
  14. 14. The Ultimate Leap in Knowledge You are indestructible. Go beyond positive perception of reality to the perception of positive reality Eg Airlifted out of disaster zone
