  • Re: Should you use Christianity as a skillful means?

    For every nice thing in the bible you can find something horrible. Especially in Leviticus and Deuteronomy. They could always say that they are taking their inspiration from there.

  • Re: Apologists (Christian and Muslim) critiques of Buddhism on Youtube - WTF???

    As rubbish as that video was I'm really not suprised, you get all kind of headcases on the internet, particularly youtube.

  • Re: What would be your favorite Job if you could do anything?

    Egyptologist. I actually was hoping on becoming one when I was younger but I came back to reality pretty quick.

    what's that you were saying about Buddhism being superior?
    These people aren't even following it correctly. I wonder if they actually know what Buddhism is, they probably just call themselves Buddhist but do not know anything about what it means to be one.
    I guess you're sort of like George Bush. You're the decider...in this case of who is and isn't Buddhism. Or, perhaps, you could be the Pope of Buddhism and decide to excommunicate them.

    Judge not, lest ye be judged. I know that's a Christian saying, but it applies here. It is not up to anyone else to decide if a person is Buddhist. Because if it is, then I could decide that all Zens or Mahayanans are not really Buddhists.

    Oh, make no mistake, these folks deserve criticism. But I'm sure each and every one of us has failed to uphold the basic principles of Buddhism many a time...and that includes you (and me).



    I'm not saying they aren't Buddhists exactly, just that they probably know nothing about Buddhism which is pretty obvious.
