Don't tell me what I believe. I happen to find statements like this ludicrously stupid.

Yeah. Of course, the things you've remembered are almost always totally unconfirmable. My personal feeling about "past-life" recall by anybody, Scientologist or not, is that it's merely the product of a creative imagination, possibly combined with something you once read or saw in *this* lifetime, but that you don't consciously remember.
