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?

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.
