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.

Buddhism is considered as on of the oldest religion in the world. There are many research going on this religion to know the importance of it. As per the science and technology many things considered as true. But it totally depends upon the individual aspect towards the religion.

If you ignore Hinduism, Judaism, Zoroastrianism and Jainism then yes, Buddhism can be seen as one of the oldest. Actually, it comes roughly in the middle of the list. Its even newer if you count in all the religions which were around before people invented religions ending in -ism.

By the way, Matt - I do wonder why you advertise an Indian software development company if you're a social media manager living in California. Or even New York.

Bummer. But then the content is probably not what I had in mind. :(

There's been a lot of research in recent years corroborating positive effects of Buddhist (and non-Buddhist) meditation.

A PubMed search on buddhist meditation, and just on buddhism.
