No, reincarnation is recycling the soul. That atoms thing you're talking about is recycling matter.

Carbon wasn't made in the big bang, so it's not 13.7 billion years old. Most carbon is made by fusion in stars. As Carl Sagan said, "We are made of star stuff." It probably took at least three previous generations of stars burning to make elements, then collapsing and exploding to spread them around, to get where we are today. Carbon-14 has a relatively short half-life and is made by cosmic rays in the upper atmosphere, but that's a negligible portion of all carbon.

True or not the atoms are still there when you die, they get remixed all the time forever
