I usually refrain from sharing my religious beliefs and all with my co-workers. But, recently casually I mentioned to someone that I believe in reincarnation.
But, then the person laughed at me and he asked me the following questions, which I did not have satisfying answers to. I told him I am not sure about these and he seemed pretty satisfied with that response.
So, I am listing the questions below. I do believe in reincarnation and these questions are not intended for providing any answer to anyone by me, but this is just for my own curiosity.
1. What was the population of earth 100 years back ? What is it now ? How does this keep on increasing if souls are the same ?
2. Ok...so if a soul takes many life forms, then if count of human beings increase on the planet, then the count of animals should decrease.(considering souls coming from animals to human form) But, how come number of human beings and number of animals both keeps on increasing. Do new souls get added ?
3. Why so desperate need to get out this body and all ? Are you saying all the babies born in the world are sinners, since they have to suffer the human birth going forward ?
Kindly show me some guidance in these questions.
