I've recently started looking into Buddhism and I have a question concerning rebirth. I've noticed several Buddhist authors that refer to Dr. Ian Stevenson's research as "proof" of rebirth. However, he comments that the vast majority of his cases involve several years of time between lives. In the Buddhist material I've seen it says, depending on the school, that rebirth either happens immediately or after 49 days. If Dr. Stevenson's research shows years, how do Buddhists reconcile their "proof" with what is normally taught in Buddhism with regard to the time between lives?
