The world famour researcher Ian Stevenson has died at the age of 88, his methods and conclusions when investigating reincarnation were IMO careful and well thought out, one of the real gems in the field of paranormal research.

Much of his research was conducted with children who appeared to recall a past life, and this confirmed a feature that had been noticed by other researchers. Typically, the child starts talking about a previous existence almost as soon as he or she can speak, and loses the memories within a few years – certainly by the age of eight – though there are always exceptions to this rule.


Sounds like a good guy.


He was challenged by sceptics, of course, who offered various non-paranormal explanations for the evidence he was collecting, such as mistranslation due to bias on the part of his interpreters, fraud by the children’s families or sloppy scientific method by Stevenson. He patiently answered such claims and remained focused on his mission.



On investigation, for example, he found that two small circular marks on the head of the subject corresponded to the wounds suffered by the past-life personality who had died after being shot in the head. The size of those marks were also similar to those indicated in the autopsy report, with the exit “wound” being larger than the mark that showed where the bullet had entered.


Some great stuff there.

Reincarnation is a strange thing, Ive heard relatives and close friends some how stay entwined in our various reincarnated lives, taking on different roles, the idea your mother could be your daughter in another life etc, is bizarre, yet amazing.

Here is an alternative veiw of what reincarnation could be, albeit no less deficient in the spiritual/paranormal dept.
