Buddhists who are non-theists
i value facts.

Buddists values the Budda - Gautama - they revere.

some are Athiests some are Theists.

Buddism itself is Theistically agnostic.

Re: EVIL!!!!!!!!

But since it has no moral and rational grounds for its pronouncements, don't put words in my mouth. i affirm the UN as a moral and reason body. so it serves those purposes. and no real power, good! no fan of world empire/army. what can it do? serves as a role model in the concept of an overall rule...

Re: EVIL!!!!!!!!

To say that some men still happen to believe in morality is not the same as to say they have a rationally justified belief in it. Without rational justification Morality is based upon feelings, and is an instinct. reason is irrelevant. Then morality also is nothing more than a feeling. An "instinct...

Re: So what's not to like

Asserting that Christ was a believer is a huge, unwarrented assumption.  The underlying principle of Christianity is eternal life, not an eternal and unchanging mortality.  spoken like a true Saulist Christian. you make Jude, James, John, Mark, Matt, Luke, and Peter cry. Jesus was a Jew, so he beli...

I wonder if Lord Obama and his so called progressive agenda ever actually had any merit or was it all just a story, a dream dreamt by no one. We're talking about Jesus, you jackoff!
