God & Reincarnation

Before i start, please understand that this is a contrarian blog, i do not intend in any way to disrespect your believes. However, it is my duty to think of, and express ideas that are not popular but make sense.

Reincarnation, also called rebirth or transmigration, is a part of the Saṃsāra doctrine of cyclic existence.It is a central tenet of all major Indian religions, namely Buddhism, Hinduism, Jainism, and Sikhism, and it is also a part of the Druze faith.

Some claim they are the reincarnation of other people that existed in the past, and many believe that. example below:

However, i am not writing this to prove or disprove reincarnation, i am writing it to explore the logic behind it.

Let’s have a little thought experiment,

Let’s assume there is a God, and let’s assume he is determined on judging every soul after it’s death.

From a fairness point of view, this is absurd! How can you judge a guy born rich in a good family with the same standards you judge a poor guy born in a dysfunctional abusive family ? So fairness wise, a single life per soul is pretty unfair.
So, if God is fair, every soul should be treated the same way. We should all be born rich or all born poor …
Unless, there is a possibility to stack up several experiences, during many lifetimes.

Thus a person who live life 1 rich, then life 2 poor, then life 3 dies young, then life 4 poor again ….. life 1000 etc
This way every soul can be judged in a fair way, based on the cumulative experiences.

But what would make it even better, is if a soul can be reincarnated in more than 1 body at a time, let’s call this a multi-body reincarnation. This would probably accelerate things a bit.

Imagine a man born 1000 years ago, now with the population number increase, his soul today would exist in 400 bodies, and all the data / experience gathered through all these lives would reveal the characters of this soul, thus making it fit for a fair judgment.
