UhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhUhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh

Good point. Many people who claim to be Buddhist often kill people in un-Buddhalike rage. It's rather sad, and disgusting when people do that.

Uhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh

Well, I'm not saying they aren't true Buddhists, I'm saying they're bad at it.

I'm not sure what to call that, a "Not good-enough Scotsman fallacy?" It has the same problems though. What would you say a good Buddhist would be like?

I don't dislike Buddhism, but I keep looking at this guys posts thinking he doesn't really seem like a Buddhist to me.

RE: For Taq
Buddhism is just as bullshit as any other religion... Just in a different way.

It divides, it controls, it makes daft claims.

It may be a low priority on my list of 'Things I Wish Would Fuck Off'... But its still on the list.

I guess I just don't mind Buddhism because I have never had a Buddhist try to convert me.

And from what I've seen and read of it - outside of the guy on this thread - they don't try conversion because there is no need to as they see it. Of course there are always exceptions...

It's disingenuous to say that I have attempted to convert anyone.

It often comes across that way.
