Science Fundamentalism...is exactly what happens when there’s a significant, perceived ideological threat to one’s traditions and identity.

Thanks from whom?

Is your elderly group of hippy female, withered prunes, gathered at the local crystal shop, in California, going to start a petition?

Well of course I know.

You are just like Zeuzzz, RYU238, Shaka and Freebill. You come here because you don't have any friends. It's that simple. :lol:

Why would a spiritual hippy, with a clear "woo" view on their cosmic overview on life, be wasting time talking to skeptics on a forum, if they actually had any friends? :mrgreen:

I'm not really that versed in Buddhism - but at least it seems somewhat internally consistent, which is rather exceptional when it comes to belief systems.

The best thing about buddhism is that it has no god.
The meditation is a good feature - and buddhist meditation is in no way similar to christian meditation as it seeks to bring about a certain state of consciousness. Christian meditation is more of a reflective state involving thought and buddhist meditation in its purest state is inner silence.
But you dont need buddhism to meditate.

The first thing to remember is that there can be nothing more present than empirical.

Yup – most certainly true… Monk held over fake ¥10,000 notes used to pay for date with girl, 17

Love it... he made them at work.
