Will this Researcher Prove Reincarnation?
A show on Coast to Coast last Sunday (April 19) caught my interest and I wanted to bring the information to this forum.

According to researcher Paul Von Ward, we carry over a resemblance of physical features, such as facial features and body type. When I say "carry over," I mean that these traits appear when we reincarnate in another, subsequent lifetime. In addition, there are personality traits that carry over and also knowledge and skills.

Von Ward is studying reincarnation cases. What he does is study both the lives. He obtains photographs of the person in this lifetime and photos or other likenesses of them in another lifetime. After doing this with so many cases, he has found there is a certain physical resemblance.

I think his idea is that if he can find physical resemblance in X numbers of cases, there would be a mathematical proof that reincarnation exists. The odds for this would be so high that there could be no other explanation. He may have already reached that point--I would have to listen to the program again to be sure.

He says the transfer of the traits from one lifetime to another is done via what he calls the "soul genome." It is information that shapes the person both in their physical appearance, personality, approach to life, etc. Another term he uses for this is "psychoplasm."

Von Ward thinks three of the founding fathers of America are reincarnated and with us now. He said one of them is now a physician who was John Adams. It has taken a very long time for him to do so, but this physician has finally admitted there is something to this and he now has a site where he has his picture posted along with that of John Adams. One can definitely see a resemblance. In addition, there are other pairs of pictures. Barack Obama is there!

Von Ward says he studied the founding fathers and other well known lives because there is so much information on them. The preponderance of his cases, however, are just ordinary, day-to-day lives. Von Ward knows his own previous lives but he will not talk about them.

Here are a few links to pursue if you're interested in reading further:

Von Ward's web site, which includes information about his book:

The doctor who may have been John Adams has a website, too, and it includes lots of pictures of the current life and the reincarnated life:

At the above link, you can check who Barack Obama may have been, as well as many others. I was intrigued but disappointed to read of bush's previous life and his association with Al Gore.

1. This is interesting
The Sufi idea is that each soul comes from God and visits various planes on their journey to the earth plane. In each place, they need "stuff" in order to exist--and they pick it up from those souls on the return journey. So in one plane, the soul picks up an emotional outlook, another talents, and another their way of speaking and understanding the world, and from this earth plane, the look of the physical body. And a soul make pick up the "stuff" from many ascending souls or just one or two.

I don't know which concept of reincarnation is correct, but I could see how either could work out.
