Stranger: Hinduism

You: Interesting. Do you mind discussing about your religion?

Stranger: do you want to know anything

You: Yeah. I'm interested in your reasons for believing in god(s).

Stranger: i dont knw why but i just know i do

You: Are you saying that you have no reason at all to believe in what you believe in?

Stranger: i do have i am just lazy to debate

You: Well, one reason would be enough for me

Stranger: ahh i am not sure

You: You can't name a single reason?

Stranger: oh well ia m sorry not in the mood now

Your conversational partner has disconnected.

I like his honesty.

Skepticism is not a position; it is an approach to claims.
Science is not a subject, but a method.

When you are courting a nice girl an hour seems like a second. When you sit on a red-hot cinder a second seems like an hour. That's relativity.

You cannot successfully determine beforehand which side of the bread to butter.

RE: Chatlog thread
You're now chatting with a random stranger. Say hi!

You and the stranger both like religion.

Stranger: hmm yeah fuck you

Stranger: you theist

You: Hm?

Stranger: i'm going to kill god

You: For that to be possible he would have to exist

Stranger: he exists but our god is better

You: Whose god?

Stranger: mine god

You: Which is?

Stranger: vishnu

You: Hinduism, huh?

Stranger: yeah not exactly but close

You: Why do you believe in Vishnu?

Stranger: because i can feel his presence and guidance flow in my body

You: Can you feel his guidance in the early morning?

Stranger: i meditate and exercise in the early morning so yes

You: I meant something else, but anyway.

What makes you think your god is better than that of anyone else?

Stranger: my god is the only one that really brings peace and salvation to the world, he isn't a liar

You: Your attitude sounds a lot different.

"hmm yeah fuck you"
"i'm going to kill god"
"he exists but our god is better"

Stranger: indeed so ?

You: You're not representing the piece of your god

You: *peace

Stranger: yes he is very peacefull

You: But you are not

You: You're agressive

Stranger: in the name of him and his preservation i have to, only way to bring peace

Stranger: true this way

You: Is it only agression or also violence?

Stranger: never violence !! you can show anger and intimidate

Stranger: never hurt a soul

Stranger: don't you find it strange i talk about Vishnu as a he ?

You: Not really, to be honest

Stranger: many people see him as a her, just wanted to know

You: "It" makes it sound like an object

Stranger: the it is the spirit

Stranger: the it in you

Stranger: truely open the chakra

Stranger: to live

You: I've got a question for you

You: How would you convince a skeptic that your religion is the right one?

Stranger: by showing him the ways of our teachings, meditate with him and find his calling to life. but don't get me wrong it's not only one view or way to master. every person has to find their own way with him

You: But that sounds a lot like the way people of any other religion do it

Stranger: indeed and that's wrong because ?

You: I didn't say it's wrong, did I?

Stranger: you assume it a bit

Stranger: are you mocking my religion, why ?

You: I'm skeptic about the truth of your religion. From what you've told me there is nothing that other religions don't have that would make it valid.

Stranger: well i could show you, but you are behind your pc now. I need to have a personal encounter

Stranger: personal meditation and a long thinking session, i have those regulary

Stranger: no way to show you through a website

You: That's what I'm talking about. Other religions include personal meditation as well.

Stranger: but in different ways

Stranger: it doesn't matter that other religions do this also, it's about the content and context of the meditation

You: Alright then. I've another question regarding this topic. Would you say that there is any scientific evidence for your belief?

You: Or is it all based on personal experiences while meditating?

Stranger: ah this question again, the scientific approach. You probably don't fully understand our 'god' then. It's more of a spirit a natural force an embodiement we call vishnu. We are the creators of it from our true selfs she only exists if you want it

Stranger: she lives not in the sky or in a fairy tale kingdom, she lives in the bodies of all kind of creatures. we need to find her first in it

Stranger: 'she doesn't exist you know'

Stranger: she's merly there

Stranger: and it's up to you to interpret it the way you want

You: That's interesting, to say the least (no sarcasm). Can you tell me how it's different from Hinduism?

Stranger: well hinduism has more different layers to it, you probably know about the concepts of nirwana or enlightment. We don't really think in that straight path and the road you have to take it. We judge it ourselves through our own chakra (energy) It's also a bit looser in ways. As i said about the interpetation part

Stranger: our's is also more of a faith then a religion

You: I'd argue that every religion relies on faith

Stranger: we don't use the terms apostasy and blasphemy

Stranger: also heresy

Stranger: because who is our god ?

Stranger: it's not an entity

Stranger: or being

Stranger: it's an ideology embodied in this way of life which we call it

You: That sounds very abstract

Stranger: i know it sounds that way to you, but once you read our scrolls and lecture it's not so hard to follow
The rest of the conversation was him going on about his religion. *yawn*
