@ almightybob1: while some Buddhists believe in Reincarnation, that`s generally because they are from a society where reincarnation was part of the cultural belief system; ie: Tibet.

Most Buddhists do NOT believe in Reincarnation, and a lot of basic Buddhist teaching involves the idea of Anatta or Anatman= no self or no soul, the idea that there is no inherent self or soul that could be reincarnated.

Likwise, there is Heaven and Hell in Buddhism, they are two of the six realms (Heaven, Hell, Human realm, Beast realm, and realms of Hungry Ghosts and Titans), however every Buddhist I`ve met agrees these are meant as psychological metaphor, not faraway places you can actually wind up, literally.

Buddhists believe in reincarnation and successive lives with karma determining the progression of these multiple lives towards Nirvana, and reject the concept of an eternal soul.

Christians believe in a single earthly life followed by one eternal afterlife in either Heaven or Hell (or some time in limbo, for the Catholics), and do believe in eternal souls.

So yeah, you can`t really be both.
