    Can you believe in God

    Certainly I can.
    My belief does not require existence. o:)

    I am on my umpteenth re-reading of the Dhammapada, and on the last chapter, "The Brahmana," verse 417 (Max Müller translation), we can read:

    "Him I call a Brahmana who,
    after leaving all bondage to men,
    has risen above all bondage to the gods,
    and is free from all and every bondage"

    Awesome quote @Buddhadragon ?

    The OP has made a habit of joining the forum to post a question, but has rarely returned to continue constructive dialogue, or to process replies and carry the discussion further forward.

    In these circumstances, I shall close the thread on the basis that, should he wish me to re-open it so that he may respond or share his thoughts, he just needs to drop me a PM.
    Until such a time, as usual, thanks to everyone for their contributions.
