A case for reincarnation

Nearly six decades ago, a 21-year-old Navy fighter pilot on a mission over the Pacific was shot down by Japanese artillery. His name might have been forgotten, were it not for 6-year-old James Leininger.

Quite a few people — including those who knew the fighter pilot — think James is the pilot, reincarnated. James' parents, Andrea and Bruce, a highly educated, modern couple, say they are "probably the people least likely to have a scenario like this pop up in their lives." But over time, they have become convinced their little son has had a former life.

From an early age, James would play with nothing else but planes, his parents say. But when he was 2, they said the planes their son loved began to give him regular nightmares. "I'd wake him up and he'd be screaming," Andrea told ABCNEWS' Chris Cuomo. She said when she asked her son what he was dreaming about, he would say, "Airplane crash on fire, little man can't get out."

  1. This gave me shivers! I HAVE to believe this - there's no way NOT to believe it. I admit I was once one of those who scoffed, but not anymore. Even before seeing this, I had already reached the point where I believe there's more than just dying and that's it. Too many lives are cut off so short - before the person has really finished their living - and reincarnation is the only thing that makes sense to me now.

  2. Great story.Wish I remembered more about my WWII life.

  3. Truly incredible. I was a sceptic but this has got me thinking!

  4. Here's my burning question: If we can believe in a man who claimed to be god in human form, who died on a cross, and then bodily arose from the dead three days later, then what makes reincarnation so incredible and outlandish that we find ourselves skeptical? Personally, I think that the case for reincarnation is more scientifically sound, and makes far more sense than the former.
