Reincarnation is like a box of chocolates – if you don’t get in there fast, someone else gets all the good stuff.
I came to Buddhism pretty late in my last life. I guess you could’ve described me as an Experimental Agnostic in my former incarnation, because it was my predilection to give pretty much all the religions a test run before I made my ultimate decision. In the end (and at my end) I chose Buddhism, because it seemed to be the most flexible in terms of afterlife, and I liked to leave my options open.
Some people say I got my just deserts when I was reincarnated as an Atheist… but I don’t believe for a second that that’s true.
