This Funzing Experience:

Many happy returns? The psychology of reincarnation claims.

This talk will describe my experience of taking part in a documentary investigating reincarnation claims amongst the Druse in Lebanon.

The Druse are a religious sect for whom reincarnation is a central belief. The general conceptual problems with reincarnation will be outlined as will the specific problems associated with the Druse version. Case histories that were featured in the documentary are presented and discussed.

A plausible alternative (non-paranormal) explanation for apparent past-life memories is outlined. It is argued that, regardless of the truth of such beliefs, believing in reincarnation has been beneficial for the Druse.

Venue: Haunt, Stoke Newington

Doors: 7pm / Talk starts: 7.30pm.
