Dr. Jim Matlock, author of “Signs of Reincarnation” (2019), has worked at the American Society for Psychical Research in New York City and at the Rhine Research Center in Durham, North Carolina. He is presently a Research Fellow at the Parapsychology Foundation. His chief research interests are the history of parapsychology, anthropology of religion, and reincarnation. He follows on from the famous research of Dr Ian Stevenson, founder of the Division of Perceptual Studies in the University of Virginia.

In this second part we look at the theory underlying the conclusion of the research that Reincarnation occurs, and the skepticism that surrounds it. We touch briefly on an example of misinformation which has triggered erroneous skepticism on the famous Reincarnation case of James Lininger, and why we must always look fully into the details of a case before drawing conclusions.
