Could someone please explain to me what an atheist is?


Be glad to. It's someone who is blind in one eye and can't see
out of the other. Spiritually speaking of coarse.

zgreat, WELCOME to A2K. I like your kind of philosophy. It goes to show we all have our "belief" system. Wink


Gee thanks, Cicerone! You are a real breath of fresh air in this
can of worms.

Sorry, no insult intended. I didn't know the shoe might actually fit
someone. Sorry about your puppy too. As a dog lover, I never
knew a puppy that didn't love just about everybody. Since God is
love...........you might learn something from your puppy.

God and me love you Ed. Turn your cap around and relax. On
second thought, leave your cap alone and turn your head around
and get another point of view. Don't get touchy, I'm just joking
with you. I don't joke with people I don't think I like. I'll bet you
you are a great guy.

Well, wiping your ass with my favorite book is no way to introduce yourself. But I will take you at your word and offer a hand in friendship. But, please rid yourself of all that religious claptrap. It's not becoming or even useful. I say this in a loving way; don't be offended at my candor.

Edgar, in Buddhism there is no God, so you're in good company.

The part, "n Buddhism there is no God" is not quite true. In fact, those in genuine Buddhism won't pay full respect toward God.

"Is there a life after death" .. Even if there were no life for someone's death,I would be almost certain that a higher world than one could experience now must exist.

Sorry; that was a flip response. I can't answer when people express that sentiment for a higher world, since I see no way it could exist.

I knew you were a nice guy. I apologize for causing you to take offense
to my comments about the book. My mistake. We can be friends, but
can we agree to disagree? I am a long time Christian which is not a
religion, until people try to make one out of it. Christianity is God reaching
down to man and religion is man reaching up for some kind of a god. Jesus died for you and me and Budda didn't die for anybody. I cannot
rid myself of a living relationship with the God that takes care of me. It's
not a club I joined, OK. It's not something I just decided one day that
it was a good idea. It's in every fiber of my being. I am sorry that you
think it is religious claptrap. That is your opinion and I will honor your
right to think so. I thought this forum was about Spirituality & Religion.
I did not know it was only for atheist and agnostics, etc. and Christians
were not suppose to voice our claptrap too. I can see that I was probably
wrong about my assumption. Most will be pleased that I am leaving on
a trip for a few weeks and won't be poising a treat to their dead gods.
Christians have a way of doing that. You can talk about any little old
god you want to like Budda, Mohummad, Krisna, etc. and you hardly hear a sqeak out of anybody. Mention Jesus Christ and everybody comes unglued. Confirms to me that there is power in that name. You have to be a live God to do that. Satan hates it because he is the father of religion, athesiam and agnostics.

Enough Christian claptrap for the moment. We do have one thing in common in that I was born 9-11-42 and probably some other things too.
Until again.

You will never see that it exist in your head because it is spiritually
discerned. You can know it in your spirit only.

Thank you husker. One other breath of fresh air. You may
have noticed that I'm a lone ranger. Know any Christians that
to give me some backup?

Buddha was not, and is not, god. The term means "enlightened". In Buddhism there is no "god" comparable to the one blindly worshiped by the Abramaists. You Christians and Muslims have almost cornered the market on intolerance, and it IS extremely offensive to those who follow different religious paths. It is the Abramists who force their dreadful notions about god on the unwilling by force. Not content with killing one another, you lot seem to relish the forced submission of everyone else to your contemtable notions of god.

A pox on everyone of you who look down your snotty noses at any religion that doesn't agree absolutely with your narrow doctrines. Self-righteous dismissal of anything that might disturb your ignorance is un-becoming ... as is this little diatribe of mine.

Satt-focusable,

How is it that a non-Buddhist presumes to instruct and correct a Buddhist who has followed the Path for over forty years. I have degrees in Asian Studies, and did graduate work in Oriental Philosophy and Religion. My second language is Chinese, and I've been studying Buddhist texts since I was in my twenties. Perhaps, you have some authoritative citations from your profound studies that contradict my statement that in Buddhism there is no god? I'd be interested in having you deomonstrate your superior knowledge and understanding of my religion to me.

I think that tonight I'm on the prod. It seems that every little thing irks me today. The weather was cold, and I didn't get any studio time. Christmas presents sent to our youngest son didn't arrive, and we just recieved news of another death in the family; that's two this holiday alone. The ranks are thinning fast. Only one person left older than me. Oh well.

To my knowledge, in buddhism one talks about "heaven" or deity which buddha is not concerned with, or even rejects.
And I believe almost every christian or muslim is inclined toward Pax.
