My spin on this would be a Maury Povich-style “my bad kid” episode focusing on children who are the reincarnations of Nazi officers, bloodthirsty cannibals, et cetera. Via the Huffington Post:
A Los Angeles production company is currently holding a nationwide casting call for children who claim to have, or have had, past life memories for a new reality series, “Ghost Inside My Child,” scheduled to air on the Bio Channel later this year.
A pilot episode of the series aired a few months ago, with three kids who had gone through various steps of recovering memories of their alleged past lives.
One case from the first show concerns James Leininger. At the age of two, Leininger reportedly started having terrifying nightmares of his death. Ultimately, the family came to believe that he was the reincarnation of James Huston, a fighter pilot who died in World War II at Iwo Jima.
One of the things that surprised me most about attending the Parapsychological Association conference in Durham, North Carolina this year was how areas of science that receive the most criticism for being ‘pseudo-scientific’ are, in some cases, areas where the very basic elements, the most elegant elements, of the scientific method can be explored.
Dr. Robert Almeder, Georgia State University, wrote the introduction to Chris Carter’s new book Science and the Afterlife Experience, from Inner Traditions/Bear & Co., and he speaks here of the Dr. Ian Stevensen’s research at the Univ. of Virginia on cases in which the data seems to point to reincarnation as a plausible explanation. Rather than scoffing and dismissing this outright, Dr. Almeder presents a provocative argument for why such investigations fit very soundly within the scientific milieu.
The Church of the Last Testament is equipped with solar energy, vegetable gardens, and trampolines, money is meaningless, and children sing pop songs and chase after adorable animals. As far as 21st-century Jesus reincarnations, this has to be one of the most convincing:
Deep in Siberia’s Taiga forest is Vissarion, a cult leader who looks like Jesus and claims to be the voice of God. He’s known as “the Teacher” to his 4,000 followers…who [possess an] unflinching belief in UFOs and the Earth’s imminent demise.
Allie Shah writes in the Star Tribune:
It’s morning time and a little boy with a shaved head and a face shaped like the moon chants a Tibetan prayer.
His high-pitched voice echoes inside the Columbia Heights bedroom that his father has transformed into a lavish prayer room. In here, the 4-year-old forsakes his cartoons and toys to study scripture and learn to pray the Buddhist way.
Big for his age, he looks bigger still perched on an ornate chair draped in crimson and saffron robes. “Only for lamas,” explains his father, Dorje Tsegyal, sitting cross-legged on the floor at his son’s feet.
Jalue Dorjee, you see, is believed to be no ordinary boy.
Alan Miller is an affable young Aussie who claims to be Jesus Christ returned to Earth. (And his girlfriend says she’s Mary Magdalene to boot.) Miller has amassed several dozen worshipers, “television soap stars” among them, who have moved onto his sixteen-acre woodland compound in Queensland to be closer to their prophet. Being the son of God, he naturally has some entertaining life stories up his sleeve, including the time he gave relationship advice to Gandhi (in heaven). Add in a George Harrison hairdo, and you can see the appeal:
JERUSALEM — A Jerusalem rabbinical court condemned to death by stoning a dog it suspects is the reincarnation of a secular lawyer who insulted the court’s judges 20 years ago, Ynet website reported Friday.
According to Ynet, the large dog made its way into the Monetary Affairs Court in the ultra-Orthodox Jewish neighbourhood of Mea Shearim in Jerusalem, frightening judges and plaintiffs.
Despite attempts to drive the dog out of the court, the hound refused to leave the premises.
One of the sitting judges then recalled a curse the court had passed down upon a secular lawyer who had insulted the judges two decades previously.
Their preferred divine retribution was for the lawyer’s spirit to move into the body of a dog, an animal considered impure by traditional Judaism.
Let’s face it — at one time or another, you’ve wondered if Putin was, in fact, something more than an ordinary mortal. The Telegraph reports:
Vladimir Putin has become the object of veneration for a bizarre Russian all-female sect whose followers believe that the prime minister is a reincarnation of the early Christian missionary Paul the Apostle.
“According to the Bible, Paul the Apostle was a military commander at first and an evil persecutor of Christians before he started spreading the Christian gospel,” the sect’s founder, who styles herself Mother Fotina, said.
As befits a sect that worships a man who has denounced the decadence of the oligarchs, the sect’s members are said to survive on a Spartan diet of turnips, carrots, peas and buckwheat.
Father Alexei, the priest in the local village church, has dismissed the sect. “Her so-called teachings are a nonsensical mixture of Orthodoxy, Catholicism, the occult, Buddhism and political information,” he said.

Editor’s note: The following article is written by Jim Marrs, author of the recent Disinformation published book, The Sisterhood of the Rose. For more information about Jim Marrs’ latest book, please check out the companion website, www.SisterhoodoftheRose.org.
When I announced to my publishers that my next book would be a novel, titled The Sisterhood of the Rose, I knew for sure that they were taken aback. As a well-known “conspiracy” writer, I’ve spent nearly fifty years chronicling the “unreality” of reality, whether it involved the still unanswered questions surrounding the JFK assassination, elite powers that influence world events right under our noses, or even the vast underreported evidence for extraterrestrial contact since we detonated the atomic bomb.
So why would I make it easier for the skeptics out there by venturing into a fictional realm, considering that my journalistic work has been a hard pill for these folks to swallow?
The Sisterhood of the Rose began when I met Celeste Levesque, whose remembrance of a past life was the result of her near-death experience in the 1980s. I was very fortunate that Celeste unwaveringly supported my efforts to translate her story of a previous life as Giselle Tchaikovsky, a wealthy American ballerina who created an international Sisterhood during World War II, into a coherent book. Together, we traveled to the Languedoc region of southern France, visiting the mysterious village of Rennes-le-Château and the Cathar stronghold at Montségur, searching for evidence of this Sisterhood. I have to say that I was surprised to meet several people over there that did say that they shared memories of the Sisterhood’s existence…
