Who Is Allah?

There are 256284 comments on the The Brussels Journal story from Aug 24, 2007, titled Who Is Allah?. In it, The Brussels Journal reports that:

“Allah is a very beautiful word for God. Shouldn't we all say that from now on we will name God Allah? [...] What does God care what we call him?”

Rebirth is spiritual, when we enter the family of God and/or receive the Holy Spirit.

What're the logical arguments against reincarnation?
There are several well-documented cases studied by psychologists when a person - even as young as 4 - accurately recalls incidents of persons, places, events, personal details/habits of himself or of his family members in the previous round and minute details of professional life without being to the place in person in the present life which are later verified by experts as true. during hypnosis, monolingual people are known to speak foreign languages or even very ancient languages fluently without being exposed to these languages in the present existence.
So, what're the logical arguments against reincarnation?
Before we come to the logic or illogic of reincarnation as the case may be, let me ask you a question - what is death and what happens to the matter, energy and consciousness when the body stops functioning (dies)?

and god said let there be light and there was light.

I dont like it . it dont go with the 2 first sentences.

SO GOD ORDERD SO THERE WOULD BE LIGHT . AND THERE WAS LIGHT .

because the earth was in need of it. darkness is light and light is darkness. darkness is light for a bat the way light is light for humans . creatures are in need of the two light.

Nirvana is a special condition of consciousness that is experienced by the sage while in the body on earth....
So, what is nirvana?
Is it trance? No.
Is it reincarnation? No.
Is it metempsychosis?
Is it the anima siddhi? No.
Is it stasis which is a still deeper condition of consciousness-force? No.
Is it an OBE? No.
Is it an NDE? No.
Is it a deep contemplative state? No.
Is it forgetfulness? No.
Is it nothingness? No.
Then what is it?
Ask a Buddhist, I'm not a Buddhist. I believe in heaven.

This is from Jewish Tanach:

Quite interesting how different people view the verses differently.

I personally believe that God is the savior and God is neither Jew nor Gentile.

Every "well documented" claim has huge holes in it.
Can you give us full details with full proof of a few people.
I am sure you know how regression can induce all sorts of reactions.

You're correct Alex, God is both. She is ethnically Israeli (not Jewish) but is Jewish by faith. She would be considered a converted Gentile.

The root word, carnal means "of the flesh" Reincarnation is physical. Your spirit inhabits another soul (body).

JOWL THUMBS UP HIS ALMOST SUPRAMENTALIZED ASS,

Tell us all about the thousands of Adam/Eve pairs -genetically distinct, naturally- that or who materialized out of the cosmic ether in the distant past, and from whom we are all descended, presumably. Who or What ordered and coordinated this humanoid invasion of planet earth, and why? Also, prove your argument if you can, please.

HughBe--- Birth is also physical e.g. your BIRTH.

Reincarnation continues gross material instincts but with its effulgence and ascension into the higher planes it loses that affinity for matter and as such it attains to its native degree of freedom and then it simply remains in a state of stato-dynamic equilibrium and on quitting the body it draws itself out of the lower causation and henceforth there's no compulsory devolution into matter from a state of disembodiment. The awakened psychic simply remains merged in the psychic plane or if it has successfully united in consciousness with any of the other higher planes it then remains merged in that plane. If at all the awakened psychic seeks to further its evolution, it may descend once again on to the plane of matter and be born into a family where the ancestral genes and surroundings give it the right admixture to boost its further development. There are several shades of causation at work in this case.

Several people with a partially awakened mind-in-vital link up with the psychic and in the process remember events of their previous birth without undergoing hypnosis. The latent memories come flooding back in bits or in a rush depending on how awakened the vital mind is and how closely attached it is to the psychic. On the other hand, under hypnosis, many people are known to speak fluently in alien languages or in very ancient tongues which are unknown to them in the present round of existence. Reincarnation follows the causal laws at every step. A rare Buddhist book on techniques of reviving dormant past life memories exists. The book is difficult to come by. I remember several of my past lives.
