And, she's a good friend of George W. That pretty much ensures her credibility.

Now why am I not surprised by this comment. Bruce, I suspected you didn't have much respect for women but this comment pretty much cements it.

I can't believe she admitted that publically. The friends part with George Bush that is!

I did not know the steps in reincarnation so thanks. Can you elaborate and tell us all the different phases/steps? I've done some googling and couldn't find any "steps" mentioned. It does appear as though each religion has a whole different concept of reincarnation so perhaps the steps you mention are association with a particular belief/sect?

If that's how reincarnation works I guess we can expect you to come back as a woman then.

People are going to think she has lost her mind.

I keep coming back looking for those reincarnation steps but alas they are not here and I haven't been able to find anything about the steps on my internet searches. Mind you, I have to admit to not being much of a computer nerd so I may well not be looking in the right places or even doing it right.

If anyone besides Bruce knows anything about those steps I'm definitely interested.

There aren't actually any defined steps really. The idea is that each incarnation of a soul is improved over the one before, until that soul reaches a perfect state. It's been far too long since I read of it, and I no longer have the book. I don't think that Nirvana is the word for it, but it's something similar, an end to personal strife, to be at total peace.

edit to add: One neat part I forgot. Several religions believe in reincarnation, and many of them think the same thing; that not all reincarnations are human. Staring an animal in the eye is taken by many of them as a challenge. According to some believers in reincarnation, an animal that will hold your gaze (like some cats will do) without looking away or becoming agitated is one that has been human at some time before.

That was all I could find as well when I did some searching but from Bruce's earlier comment, I got the impression that there are definitive stages and going from woman to man would have been an upgrade. I personally cannot see how that could be but that's just me.

I got the impression that yes there are several religions that believe in reincarnation but that they all differ slightly in what they believe. That was why I was hoping Bruce would come back to explain the steps to at least Susan and I who seem to be sadly lacking in knowledge in this area.

That'd be Fawn.

Fawn has a decidedly "people" look about her anyway

I think it's the fact that her coloring seems to give her human eyebrows.

No, no religion classes for me - they didn't teach them back then (I really am old). And, as I said, I'm not very knowledgeable about searching on the computer so I had hoped you, being so much more knowledgeable in both areas could at least post a link for me, but alas, it seems I must remain ignorant.

your not that much older them me, lol.
and we had to take a Comparative religion class, how i did not want to take it. It turned out out to be one of the best and most fun classes i had.

the teacher even had, people from several different faiths, to come and talk about it. Christen,Islam, hindu,Buddhist, couple of others.

The bad part was the report we had to write to each...

Our daughter took classes like that in high school and visited several different "churches". She spent time with a young Jehovah Witness lad and visited the facility where the Watch Tower is printed which is located in the town we used to live. She was invited to stay overnight at their facility which is practically unheard of. She said they were the only religion that didn't try to recruit her and were just pleased to share their beliefs with her. She is still friends with the young man who helped her with her project. She also did a section on Hinduism. Other classmates did other religions and they all had to make presentations in class. One of the gentlemen I worked with had a statue of Shiva which he loaned her for her presentation and she bought a sari for her presentation. It was pretty cool actually.
