I was not suggesting reincarnation in lieu of an afterlife. I was suggesting there is NO afterlife, intelligent or otherwise. Moreover, it would break no scientific principle if any one of us were cloned and given identical lives and experiences as many times as it might amuse us. You are of a finite mind and of a very limited physical existence. There is nothing special about you that any deity would care to preserve for eternity. I would agree with such an assessment of my own limited existence as well. It's nothing personal.
