What if "rebirth" doesn't mean anything else than there will be birth again after death?

Does the Buddha tell us anywhere that there is more to it?

Oops, typo, it should be: my take is that Stream-enterers definitely wouldn't exist without Rebirth AND they most definitely wouldn't exist without BuddhaDhamma.. :smile:

:goodpost:

There are a handful of posters who shall remain nameless, who give me the impression that they will find something, anything, to argue about.
In the absence of an argument they occasionally argue against themselves, taking the opposite view to the view they espoused three weeks before.
Or some give the impression that they are trying to convince themselves about issues about which they have no personal experience that can in fact only be verified by guided meditation practice.
Perhaps its cultural.
