I don't mean reincarnation like the Hindus preach it. Where you can tell what you were in your previous life etc. But do you think if you died, you are born as something else and simply don't remember your previous life? Like if I died, I could turn into a bacteria or something. I think its a lot more plausible then a heaven, where when you die you just hang out there for the rest of eternity.

When I die and either reincarnate, go to heaven, or stay on Earth as ghost, I'll let you know.

Yes. It's one of the many reasons Christianity is automatically invalid in the eyes of Judaism.

I was asking a friend about reincarnation one time.

He asked me to close my eyes and then asked me, "what did the world look like a million years ago?"

I answered him, "It looks like Star Wars."

Good for you. That is quite an accomplishment on a planet that was likely created as a cosmic joke.;)

Who is Halacha?

Why do I need his permission?

Halacha = Jewish law.

You would need a valid Orthodox Conversition which would probably take anywhere from 1 and 1/2 to 4 years of intense study at a Yeshiva...

Well I respect your traditions and I am not going to change communities,

Lets just say I am a Jew like I am a Buddhist a Hindu or a Christian or a Muslim.

Despite our different traditions one fact is clear....we have the same origin, which is pure, eternal GOD!
