Hi helparcfun,

It seems that you missed the point of science theory. Science in its ultimate form, is not about evidence, it is a logical structure based on axiom. E.g you can't prove that nothing is faster than light, no one can prove that, we just accept it based on what we saw. Maybe in a galaxy far away there is something faster than light, who knows? The point is that you can't prove that there isn't anything faster than light, just bc everything we measured is slower than light then we have relative theory.

Science is a logical structure to explain the world, and if that model can predict other phenomenon then we accept it is right, until we found out phenomenon that model can't explain, then we try to find another model to explain those phenomenon.

By request evidence, you consider current model is the truth, but that approach isn't more scientific than building a new one. And I think the Buddhist model can explain the world very well. Or you can reject it, just like saying there is no evidence that nothing is faster than light.

I don't know whether or nor rebirth exists, but deja vu DOES.

(these rebirth threads are incontrovertible proof).
