List the whole myriad, please. That's what I mean when I say "elaborate".

my answers, in order

Um, blind assertions, no.
Don't know what the second one means.
Yes, I accepted things on faith,
loss of critical thinking no, my presence here proves that,
never have said a mantra here, not sure if you know the definition.
Yes, I do accept things without evidence, that's why it's called faith.
Yes.
Incoherence, definitely not, your failure to look up unfamiliar words and terms doesn't make me incoherent.

No, the Buddha did not claim belief in demons, unless you are using it metaphorically, such as "conquering one's own inner demons". Some Buddhist cultures believe in demons, but those are cultural beliefs, not Siddharta's teachings.

What he said!

Though, again, spirits (evil forces) are a very real influence in this Dharma Ending Age as we await Maitreya.

Um, no, asshole. There IS NO "dharma ending age". Unless you want to count the bastardization of the Buddha's teachings by Brahmin idiots like abhidhammists, mahayanists, and vajryawoowooists like you.

The Buddha never taught such horseshit, EVER.

It's Special Pleadings all the way down!

Why are you doing this? Correct me if I'm wrong, but these remarks to my explanations that force me to ask for elaboration are intent to demean and insult me, while I've been very friendly.

No, they are meant to call you on your spouting a load of horseshit.

Quote:Again, could you please elaborate why you feel I'm not a Buddhist?

Because you are spouting a bunch of horseshit woo that has nothing whatsoever to do with, and is in fact the very antithesis, of the Buddha's teachings. Facepalm

God, Why couldn't you've just said that... anyway.

It is within the same religion,

No, it's not. It is Bon and animism and several local, regional, and nationalistic superstitions, with a microscopic sprinkle of Buddhist teachings as a micro-thin veneer. You retards even claim that your religion is superior to mahayanist superstitions AND to the Buddha's own teachings. How utterly arrogant.

Why it's so confusing is because idiots like you and your vajryawoowoomeisters and superstitious mahayanists falsely claim that YOUR superstitious horseshit is "Buddhism".

The spirits that historical Buddhas have defeated, were really just negative feelings that detract from enlightenment.

I love how you woowallowers try to jump between claiming that mythical figures are real and that they are allegorical. Fucking tapdancing all damn day.

^^^LIKE THIS. Facepalm

His point is that you are resorting meaningless word salad in an effort to dodge his questions.

Yes.

You have already been advised that scripture is not proof of anything.

These terms are not unfamiliar to me. You are attempting to dodge direct inquiry by retreating into your web of superstitios mumbo-jumbospeak, in hopes of baffling posters here with bullshit. But you fucked up here, because there are several members here who are VERY familiar with the Buddha's teachings, and with your idiotic religion's nonsensical tenets, superstitions, rituals, and batshittery.

Rinpoche, I respect your right to your cultural beliefs, but things like faith are the exact opposite of the Buddha's teachings. The Buddha taught that the only way we find truth in anything is to question it until we can't question it anymore, because truth will always stand up to any kind of questioning. He even told his students to question his own teachings. This is how we gain knowledge and separate truth from fiction. Accepting something on faith - especially to do so on the grounds of superstitious beliefs - is to go completely against his teachings.

So you'll be happy to post a video of it happening. Here's the rock before your gawd-boy walks on it, here's your gawd-boy's feet walking on the rock and creating the impressions, and here's the rock afterword. Hell, you could do it live on fucking Oprah. Make a gazillion dollars for your cult.

Here's some photographic evidence for other miracles.

HH Dorje Chang Buddha III was taking pictures with some disciples.

When he clicked his camera, a phenomenon occured:

It's small, but you can zoom in. It shows one side of the mountain completely dark, and one completely white.

As a photographer, I can tell you that that is the result of a sticky lens aperture blade.

You are really, really gullible. Drinking Beverage

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