Fact of the Day: Patton Reincarnation

Controversial WWII general George S. Patton wasn't exactly known well for his faith in the Bible but he was a devout Christian man in his personal life. Ironically Patton also believed in reincarnation, and believed he lived many different lives, but always as a soldier.

So often the way people use "faith"; to simply reinforce their own personal desires.

Wow ~ I find that fascinating, Adam! I'm an agnostic, but I've always had a tiny unshakable voice deep inside me that insists that I have lived before. I push it down because scientific me finds the idea preposterous, but I've never been able to kill that voice.

I think he really was in love with the old Roman times as well. He was a different bird that's for sure

Well some believe you keep getting reincarnated until you reach a certain level of existence and no longer need to come back. Patton is probably still working on it. Or is that karma?

Su-sieee! Mac said...

Good for him for thinking outside of the box.

He was an interesting guy, and our richest general during WWII.

Also the most self-centred.
He romanced a lot on this reincarnation business.

The movie "Patton" depicts him rather well.
He hated Field MarshallMontgomery ( an ally) and admired Generalfeldmarshall Rommel ( an adversary). Really an enigma of a man.
He gave Eisenhower and Omar Bradley headaches.........it was no wonder that Eisenhower was a chain smoker.
