            The basic problem with reincarnation is its implication that the
    "real me" is separable from my
    body, & in fact can inhabit various bodies without being identified with
    any one of them. & its a small step from that to saying that bodies, &
    the physical world in general, aren't too important. That was OK for
    Plato (or for Augustine in his heavily Platonic phase - "our real selves
    are not bodies" - though I'm not sure he ever got over this entirely)
    but doesn't mesh very well with Christian concepts of creation &
    Murphy - no relation to Bridey
