Reincarnation means "to come again in the flesh", and refers to the belief that, after a person's death, their soul may be born again as another person, animal or other creature. Belief in reincarnation is common in many Eastern religions, including Hinduism, Sikhism and Buddhism. Less commonly, certain Jewish sects have believed in either common or extremely rare reincarnation. Many liberal new agers also believe in reincarnation, amongst other lies. However Hebrews 9:27 refutes any possibility of reincarnation: "It is appointed unto man once to die and then comes the judgment." So once again, liberals are deceiving themselves and others.

Since there is no objective evidence that reincarnation has ever happened, belief in reincarnation is based on wishful thinking. Believers in reincarnation counter that reincarnation has not been disproved to their satisfaction. However, that counterargument has two problems. First, it involves impermissibly shifting the burden of proof. Second, since doctrines concerning reincarnation tend to be constructed to be unfalsifiable, the fact that they have not been disproved to someone's satisfaction proves nothing.
