Yes you can be Wiccan & not believe in reincarnation. The other side is referred to as the Summerlands. To some it's a final place,  to some a temporary stop on the way to reincarnation. It's a personal belief not a doctrine. If you have questions about Wicca one very good book, even if you aren't intrested in practicing the religion, is A Witch's Book of Answers by Eileen Holland. It covers the major questions most  people have as well as many more specific questions.

I do believe in a "life force", but I can't wrap my head around reincarnation. If we are reincarnated then were do so many people come from?   
Is it maybe that I look at it the wrong way?

K, now, stop for a second and look above and below, left and right, all around you are unmeasurable light years of space. We hardly kicked of this blue planet. Do you really think that the rest of the Universe is... soulless?   :wink:

This is how I always viewed it. There is the soul & then the spirit. The soul is what gets reincarnated, its the lessons, events, traits, ect that we are meant to carry into the next turn we get on earth. The spirit is like a person's essence, it's what would remain behind as a ghost if they were to stay behind for some reason. As to how there are so many diffrent people, this is the phrase 'old soul" & "new soul" come into play. Just like all energy, souls are being created & destroyed. Just my view though.

What's the use of a soul, if you don't remember your past lives ???  If your memories are dead, so you are. Then accept that you are going to die for good and your body will feed the worms.  As for the amount of new people in the world, I guess that most were cockroaches or rats in their previous existence ... or maybe they are alien hybrids withour soul ...that's a tricky question :)
The greatest trick the devil ever played was convincing the world that he did not exist.Ē - Charles Baudelaire (French and monstrous poet).

I have read about what they consider to be a spirit and soul. (wiki) It seems that one can not exist without the other. Speaking stricktly about humans.
What good does it do if you are reincarnated to better yourself but don't remember your previous existence?

Oh, it was so easy to belong to organized religion (no offense) :lol: Didn't have to think for myself (no offense - just my opinion) :laugh:
