Reincarnation is a belief that after death, some part of you continues to exist and is born again as either another human being or non-human living thing.

Counter-apologetics

Lack of evidence

It is claimed that some part of a person, such as a spirit or essence, survives death and continues to exist into another life. However, there is no reliable observable conservation of any identity, essence or spirit into each new life. While testimony for this exists, it has not been reproduced in a controlled environment. If this effect is unobserved, what exactly is retained between lives?

Mechanics of reincarnation

Assuming a spirit is immediately reincarnated upon death, reincarnation fails to consider population growth. This can be rescued if one assumes that the conscious beings born as humans may have been intelligent aliens in their previous life. The population of the universe as a whole may be steady.

Alternatively, spirits may have to wait to be reincarnated or be reincarnated in the past by time travel.
