guys is there any scientific explanation for this? when we die will our thoughts too die or will it still stay in some form which we yet not discovered?

that makes no sense..if your religous (christian for example) and you read the bible and believe in it like you believe in god. you wouldnt say there was no hell because the bible speaks of the devil and gods judgement etc etc.
are you saying your religous but you chose to ignore the scary negative parts of the bible and just chose to follow the nice bits? why would you read the book and then believe in god....but not in the devil or hell?
another good reason why religion is BS
I completely disagree on all fronts. What's the point of learning through experience when you never remember the experience you were to learn from in the first place?
Reincarnation IS punishment. Your job on this earth is to free yourself from the bonds of Karma that've been arbitrarily thrust upon you.
The fact that you are even born on this Earth in the first place - regardless of aspect - is punishment for not getting it right the time prior.
The only way to know whether or not you've "Done It Right" is when your soul finally transcends Karma - meaning - you win when you stop coming back to Earth for more "lessons."
It is when you finally break the Karmic Bonds that you transcend - and mortal vessels are no longer necessary.
Therefore, my next life will be determined by my conduct in this one, so, come next life - what from this life will I be taking to that new life to learn or grow from, hrm?
How can we apply what we've learned from past experiences to new ones if we can not remember what it is we've experienced?.
Sorta like failing a math quiz every day because you suck at math. Instead of being allowed a tutor to help you pass the first time with flying colors, you're left to languish with the consequences of merely being a human being.

The memories are, IMO, demonic possession.
Demons have been around a long time, and would remember intricate details and languages, etc.
The purpose of the demonic possession in reincarnation is to get you to not believe in Jesus Christ as God, the Bible, etc.
Probably the best known, if not most respected, collection of scientific data that appears to provide scientific proof that reincarnation is real, is the life's work of Dr. Ian Stevenson. Instead of relying on hypnosis to verify that an individual has had a previous life, he instead chose to collect thousands of cases of children who spontaneously (without hypnosis) remember a past life. Dr. Ian Stevenson uses this approach because spontaneous past life memories in a child can be investigated using strict scientific protocols. Hypnosis, while useful in researching into past lives, is less reliable from a purely scientific perspective. In order to collect his data, Dr. Stevenson methodically documents the child's statements of a previous life. Then he identifies the deceased person the child remembers being, and verifies the facts of the deceased person's life that match the child's memory. He even matches birthmarks and birth defects to wounds and scars on the deceased, verified by medical records. His strict methods systematically rule out all possible "normal" explanations for the child’s memories.

There is no reincarnation, sorry.
On the day of Judgment, the soul is united with our body and if there was reincarnation, which earthly body would our one soul be united with?
Reincarnation is a falsehood and one of Satan's Tools. There are many reasons for this teaching, but you won't take my word for it, so please do your own research while praying and connected to God.
