Absolute capitalism or takeing more than you give is what buddhism is based on.

Absolute self indulgent reason is a product of absolute capitalism.

"Buddhists believe that nothing is fixed or permanent - change is always possible"

That is your problem right there.

"Believe"

Belief

You have a belief.

You don't know.

And if you don't know...you are ignorant.

So then Buddhists embrace the just think positive ignore negative religion like all the other belief systems.

Buddhists like all all religions worship ignorance as the path to salvation.

They like all the other believers that have faith think ignorance is bliss.

Of course ignorance is not bliss...But until you are aware of this...you are ignorant.

You can cliam you are happy all you want...But as soon as you claim to be aware...you are a liar.

Change of course is always possible.

It's just not going to happen as long as you worship ignorance.

The just think positive ignore negative religion.

Is the embrace fantasy reject reality equation.

The embrace lies and delusion reject Truth equation at the core of the drone reasoning algorithm.

Ok once you choose to take more than you give.

Or chop down trees faster than they regrow to sustain your happiness/continued existence.

You have two options

Stop chopping down trees faster than they regrow before they run out...at which point your happiness/existence ends.

or

continue chopping down trees faster than they regrow until teh trees run out...at which point your happiness/existence ends.

sorry.

So sooner or later you will have to change...You will be forced to when you either choose to stop or are forced to stop when you arrive at the logical conclusion of the take more than you give equation.

Heroin and other drug addicts have the same religion as Buddists when they shoot up.

I can assure you that the only way I ccould change into a buddist mentality is if I suffered some sort of brain injury and lost my memmory.

Sorry.

Once you reject the worship of ignorance as the path to salvation.

There is no going back.

i used to be a buddhist. i am no longer, but i still adhere to many of the practical life principles. things like detachment, balance is the middle way, etc. lots of good stuff in there, Jesus said the same stuff. but, also lots of illogical, inconsistent, and false things in there too. be careful...

Ok, sounds good but now come back to reality...man is basically evil...period...deal with that in Buddism. Buddists are "people" subject to the same passions, desires, etc. that the normal man is subject to...he can only push those away just so long...there is no answer outside of Jesus Christ....like it or not...He's God..He calls the shots...He determines who does and does not enter HIS Kingdom.

Buddhism is no better than Islam or Judaism. Go into the world and you will meet bigoted Buddhists, insane Buddhists, superstitious Buddhists, power mongering Buddhists, idiot Buddhists, pompous Buddhists.

Blow up a stone buddha as the Taliban did and see how enlightened and unnattached Buddhists are.

Practice Buddhism. Your practice may increase your peace and your compassion. If it does, you would have found peace and compassion as a Muslim or a Catholic too.

I'm all for the practice--just beware that a person may shave his head and simper all day long about the precepts of Buddhism and still be a raging lunatic asshole. Especially young converts--nothing feeds a false ego like the conviction of moral superiority.

Buddhism is low gear. Christianity is high gear.

 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 25117901


Post Constantine Christianity is pagan to the core. If you're worshiping on a SUN-day, celebrating Christmas, Easter, Thanksgiving, Halloween, and not upholding the God of the Hebrew Israelites (I AM THAT I AM/AHAYAH) and the HOLY days of the bible, You're a pagan.

Repent.

Remember all " ions " and " isms " are flawed by design :

[link to thesixthperspective.com]

Buddha Consciousness is a real phenomenon, just as is Christ Consciousness.

The former is a little closer, more refined, toward Union than the latter.

Neither is realized through an external identification.

Both are realization through internal inquiry and quiet contemplation.

You obviously bought the Western watered-down, new-agish version of Budhism.

Go to Asia and see what it is really like. Contact with spirits, food offerings, much like voodoo.
Not to mention Tibetan Budhism, which is a perverted sex cult.

if you don't believe in anything, just be yourself. Why do you need Budhism at all ?

You speak about a thing that is NOTHING like the original teachings.
