    1. For me, the presence of the flag in the Indian village during the regression, shown by physical research 9 months later to be accurate, was the key to accepting it as accurate. For the entire period of research, I was doubtful of the accuracy of having Indians fly an American flag--the symbol of their enemy--in their camps. That didn't make sense to me. As it turned out, I was right. The Indians didn't normally fly the American flag in their camps, but Chief Black Kettle was told by the Territorial Governor only a wee before the massacre, to fly the flag & it would protect him & his people. So, the regression was accurate long before I or my friend knew such an event could have ever happened, & it was totally accurate--in every detail. I find that rather convincing.
    2. If you read the book Soul Survivor, & see what the parents of this child went thru trying to DISPROVE the idea of reincarnation, you'll understand why I see it as such a powerful example of evidence for it. Neither parent believed in reincarnation, but the Dad especially, was determined to reject it. His aversion for reincarnation & his determination to show how it COULDN'T be involved with his son, is very convincing. The Dad was reluctantly forced by the evidence to admit defeat, & accept reincarnation as the only plausible explanation, but only after years of determined effort to avoid that conclusion. The book is an interesting read, but more than that, a compelling journey from disbelief to belief based on irrefutable evidence. I still highly recommend it, if truth is what you are seeking. If skepticism is as far as you really want to go with it, then skip the book. Skeptics don't really care about truth or evidence.

    This is why I'm still waiting for an explanation of exactly how, in general, you decide what is convincing. You have shown why arguing US flags would never be flown is false, but that does not mean that the rest of the story is true. If someone said "I'm a Nigerian Prince, I want to give you money if you give me your bank details", and I though said "Nigeria is a republic, doesn't have princes", but then I looked it up and turns out Nigeria had princes in the recent past, that doesn't make "I'm a Nigerian Prince, send me your bank details" convincing, does it?

    I want to avoid a situation where I challenge your claims and jump to a different claim instead of defending the ones you've given. I asked you for the best evidence you found, and you didn't mention this. Does that mean that you gave me the wrong one earlier, or that this is sending me to spend a bunch of time and effort on something that isn't actually that central to your decision that it is real?

    1. Aside from the American flag flying in the Indian camp that was massacred, my friend who remembered the attack thru regression, also described the weather, the cold, the terrain, the time of day, & the direction & formation of the attack, & the landscape, all in detail & all with complete accuracy. Neither I or my friend had any knowledge of this attack or any other Indian massacres in America beforehand. The level of detail & accuracy of that detail became very convincing over the span of the 9 months we took researching it together.
    2. I have researched the afterlife for several decades, beginning with the death of my father in 1991. I've studied many facets of the subject, & at this point, no longer remember all the sources of info I studied. Depending on the questions I'm addressing at any given moment, I may remember different sources for my own gradual conviction that the afterlife was real, & reincarnation was a core part of it. I try to help those who are seeking answers to this fascinating topic by suggesting sources that come to mind at the time of my posts. I'm not perfect, & sometimes don't recall a source that might be better. For that, when it happens, I apologize. I want to direct you or any other reader to the best sources possible, without detours. :)

    We never reincarnate at a lower level of consciousness than we've already grown into. Jesus was an Avatar & Guru. He was much more advanced than anyone posting on this forum. He wouldn't come back as a non-human animal. :)

    Cute. . .but I don't think politics has anything to do with it.

    There are a lot of "good" people in the world, but most of them don't seek publicity or scrutiny. They are generally quiet souls, who live their lives based on humane values, avoiding conflicts. The ones' you're referring to in your post are the noisy, belligerent minority, who often seek money, power, fame & public attention. Generally speaking, the real world isn't what you normally see around you. But we all fall into the trap of responding to what's noisy & near to us.
