  • Re: Belief in Psychics

    @Carameltail said:
    I think stuff like belief in that is unhealthy. Though I mean I guess the only way is to try out and test these things. It hasn't really been proven by anyone to exist although even if it did I guess it is very hard to at least by standard science methods.

    So even if it could be proven you wouldn't be willing to believe in it anyway. Is that right?

    In terms of psychics who do stuff with spirits, I think the spirits they contact could be some kind of illusion, a healthy person would pass on rather than hang around like that.

    What's the difference between psychics and spirits? I'm genuinely curious here as I don't see how people who brush off psychics and others associated with them as "fuzzy and not in a healthy mindset", can then accept spirits at face value. Does that mean you believe anyone the can interact with spirits?

  • Re: Why there is no way back for religion in the West

    Remind me again, is this thread about whether Buddhism is or is not a religion? It's a bit fuzzy.

    One might argue that pissing off and wandering the forests and countryside, leaving his wife and child in the name of enlightenment was a dog act too.......

  • Re: Critically thinking about the four Noble Truths

    It seems to me you've firmly made your mind up. So take a break, see if the grass is greener on the other side because it's true for you, or if it's greener because it's fertilized with bullshit. Only you can make the decision for you.
