Theology at the Dinner Table

LW, 9, and CJ, 6, and I are having dinner.
LW: did you know there are some scientists who think that when you die you come back and you are something else but you don’t remember?
Me: Buddhists believe that, yes. They believe in reincarnation. Like maybe after a person dies they come back as a different person, or a tree, or a squirrel…
NJ: That’s stupid!
LW: Don’t say that!
(little discussion about how all beliefs are relevant, and about how LW could maybe used to have been a squirrel).
