I went through this forum looking for a post on reincarnation. Since I didn't find one I thought I'd pose this question to my fellow atheists:

What are your thoughts on the Eastern belief in reincarnation? Do any of you believe it could be real? If so, why? If not, why?

Reincarnation is nonsense. There is not a single evidence nor any scientific reason to believe reincarnation is anything but a stupid dogmatic and romantic idea that one can live forever.

While waiting at a bus stop about 25 years ago a girl with a clipboard asked if I would help with a quick survey. One of the questions was “If possible who would I return if I got a second life?” I answered by saying “Myself”. She seemed upset by this and ended the survey abruptly. Turned out from overhearing the next person’s answers that she was a Scientologist looking for fresh recruits. They still accost people at the same spot so I must do another survey. My answer will be Tom Cruise.

100% sillysense nonsense.

I will be reincarnated in accordance with the laws of conservation of mass and conservation of energy.

Before you can have a discussion about reincarnation, you need to define a soul. 

That being said, reincarnation on atomic level is a true phenomenon (e.g. iron atoms in your body were born in supernova(s)).

 

I completely believe in reincarnation ... if it means that my atoms may end up in other life forms. Other than that it is complete crap.

To believe in reincarnation, you pretty much have to believe in spirits (souls, ghosts). I would expect that anyone who doesn't believe in the big spirit in the sky doesn't believe in ghosts, spirits, or souls. They're kind of necessary for reincarnation, as I understand it.
