I'm new here, so bear with me if this is an odd question, but it came up in discussion recently.

For those philosophies or religions which support the concept of reincarnation, how does the population boom fit in? Do they think there are more souls up and about today than in earlier generations? Do they think all of our souls have been around the block a few times by now, or are new souls being added to the mix too? Do they make any effort to explain their philosophy in respect to this issue? Logically, is there any way to make this work, or is it just one of those mystical, unanswerable curiosities?
