Re: Trinity

Or maybe God is a stupid, sadistic little kid with superpowers, and doesn't reveal himself so he can laugh at our confusion. Yes, Atla, that may indeed be a possibility. However, I would suggest that any kid that has figured out how to produce (or perhaps program) a dimension of reality where unsup...

Or maybe God is a stupid, sadistic little kid with superpowers, and doesn't reveal himsel...

Re: Trinity

Too bad if you or they change your minds and become apostates - your Muslim brothers are compelled to kill you. Yes, it's a one way conversion - I wonder why? :twisted: To change for what? I already practiced most religions before embracing Islam. All other religions were killing my intellect, why ...

Re: Trinity

In which case, if according to you, not even Buddha himself can be considered as still being alive and continuing on in some higher context of reality,... ...then what is this utter nonsense you are suggesting about the building and abandoning of a “never-ending” series of rafts to carry a person o...

Re: Trinity

Averroes, perhaps you are not aware of the fact that Veritas Aequitas has declared in writing... (right here on this website) ...that he considers himself to be an equal in intellect to such historical figures as Copernicus, Galileo, Socrates, Einstein, Kant, and the likes. Indeed, I was not aware ...

Re: Trinity

Absolutely nothing coming out of Buddhism... (whether it be “Buddhism-proper” or any other name you wish to give it) ...offers anything whatsoever that would resolve the deep seated need and desire within the human psyche to understand how we and the unthinkable order of the universe came into exis...

Re: Trinity

_______ (Continued from prior post) Averroes, the bottom line is that neither you nor Veritas Aequitas are coming off as looking very intelligent with your school yard tit-for-tat exchange of: You: “You’re stupid” Him: “No, you’re stupid” You: “No, you’re even stupider” Him: “No, you’re even more st...

Re: Trinity

I have already told you, you are the stupid one in the first place in condemning others as stupid and ignorant. You have not answered my question. So, I ask you again: why you are so stupid and ignorant? Do you know? Averroes, perhaps you are not aware of the fact that Veritas Aequitas has declared...

Re: Trinity

If you have not researched Buddhism thoroughly you should not be so arrogant with the limited knowledge of Buddhism you have at present. Absolutely nothing coming out of Buddhism...

Re: Trinity

_______ (Continued from prior post) If there are no permanent [anicca] and no self/soul [anatta], what is there to be reborn? I completely understand why someone such as you – someone who is convinced that the only thing awaiting us after we die is eternal oblivion, would be attracted to the idea of...

Re: Trinity

Setting aside any conflicting interpretations of Buddhism, the bottom line is that the individualization of personal, self-aware consciousness that was once known here on earth as Siddhartha Gautama (aka, the Buddha) is either alive right now in some higher context of reality... ...or... ...his per...

Re: Trinity

How Trinity is possible if Son is united to Father but Father is the highest and knows certain things, like the end of time, that Son doesn't know? When it comes to the concept of the Trinity, I try to be practical about it. I suggest that instead of relying on the consensus opinion of a large gath...

Re: Trinity

Hume asserted the self is merely a bundle of activities and nothing more, i.e. he meant no substantial self such as a permanent soul. That sounds no different than the materialistic blatherings of a modern-day neurophysiologist. It is nothing more than the standard form of existential nihilism that...
