RE: Religions of the World 101 with Professor Buddy Christ
Regarding the Islam entry, there is an interesting thing that you've omitted.


How the story of the forbidden pork and wine started... (You'll not find this story in the Quran as far as I know)

Well, when Muhammad was a noob and was still leveling up, he decided that in order to show his e-peen to the others he had to perform a miracle. What he did was to take a flask of wine and bury it in the desert sand.

He then went to the other noobs and told them to follow him in the desert, where he would make wine flow out of the places he would strike his staff to the ground.

Unfortunately for him, when he reached the predesignated area, the flask was gone and the wine already spilled. Apparently a wild boar had dug it out in an attempt to satisfy its thirst.

Muhammad pouted, cursed pigs and alcohol and asked for a rain check to perform a miracle another day. Angel

The End.

Religions of the World 101 with Professor Buddy Christ
.

B. Christ

there is a history of enlightened masters throughout time
most recently:
Ramana Maharshi
Papaji
Patanjali
Paramahansa Yogananda
Osho
Krishnamurti

they are not so famous as some who have had religions made from
their appearance
like:

lao tzu
buddha
mohamed
jesus

so
the question is
where and how do you fit enlightened masters into religious studies?
or do you even consider them?

I place them in the same place I put the rest of the religious icons. In the "Fantasy" section of my brain, next to Harry Potter, the Easter Bunny, and Dungeons and Dragons.

And please stop calling them "enlightened masters." There's a word for people who promote the "spiritual essence" and the "oneness of nature" and the "material in between the matter"

the word is Deluded.

i see
you have not met an enlightened master
i have

i would try to explain who and what they are about making that kind of person
but that would be like trying to speak to a 13c. Italian about the world being round
an effort wasted
and
subject to derision because i have seen it before... here

i have arrived at the conclusion
through you
open-mindedness in an atheist is the same as a religious fanatic
hopelessly a waste of time

vaya con dios mon ami

If I were to start talking to you about the "enlightened" individuals I've met who have intricate knowledge and personal experience with the true nature of unicorns, would you approach that conversation with an eager demeanor to learn? Or would you assume a mental state of skepticism? People who make claims to have intimate knowledge to things that have ZERO evidence and ZERO credibility in the scientific world should be approached with the latter of mental constructs.

It's not a matter of "open-mindedness." Are you open-minded about dragons and goblins existing? Why not? Because those beings don't fit into the natural realm that we know and observe. If a man claims that through meditation, he has become "one" with the spiritual realm and has a deeper knowledge of "what is" ...it's an unfalsifiable claim. You can't test "spiritual knowledge." Nothing he says can be tested or proven. This is why the smartest scientists in the world don't classify themselves as spiritual. Because it's a realm that hasn't been proven to exist.

My open-mindedness comes through probable claims and credible sources. Yours seems to stem from an overexposure to LSD.

here is where you and i depart in being humanistic
i acknowledgment another person's point of view regardless of
being in the same understanding or frame of mind



Or would you assume a mental state of skepticism?

no
everybody has their point of view
they have their reference in existence
who am i to claim their knowledge is not valid?

you sir
are stinking rife with judgment as any religion i have seen




People who make claims to have intimate knowledge to things that have ZERO
evidence and ZERO credibility in the scientific world should be approached with
the latter of mental constructs.

who has made claims?
who are you referring to in what context of what knowledge?
is this a tangent of some other argument i'm in the middle of?



It's not a matter of "open-mindedness." Are you open-minded about dragons
and goblins existing?

i am open to the perception of another
if that is their reality
i will not discount it

it doesn't mean it's mine
it simply means, i acknowledge their... view


Why not?

i'm not like you
i don't throw another person's view out the window because it doesn't fit
my design


Because those beings don't fit into the natural realm that we know and observe.

realm and has a deeper knowledge of "what is" ...it's an unfalsifiable claim. You
can't test "spiritual knowledge." Nothing he says can be tested or proven.

B. Christ
you are spinning some other argument here that is not even on topic of what i
have been writing about

apparently
you mistake me for someone else in your past
someone who chaps your ass so raw
you're bridling at words without context here

pay attention


This is why the smartest scientists in the world don't classify themselves as
spiritual. Because it's a realm that hasn't been proven to exist.

now that's funny
some of the brightest scientists in the world acknowledge a spiritual awareness
*see einstein for the classic example*



My open-mindedness comes through probable claims and credible sources.

uhmmm
you misunderstand "open-mindeness" to the loudest degree
best you get an unabridged dictionary and see what the cat hair you're
talking about



Yours seems to stem from an overexposure to LSD.

ahhh... here we go
the derision of close mindedness has appeared
you validate my assertion
you represent the close-minded atheist equal to the religious fanatic

not a good look B. Christ

I always wondered why pork is 'dirty'. Huh.

--------------------------------

Being open minded doesn't mean you can't call things for what they are. Sounds to me like BC has taken the time to learn the facts of different religions. So he puts his personal opinion or point of view on them. Maybe something about that strikes something in weedy sea dragon?

I have heard that of all meat pork is the most like human flesh, if it is true then that might explain the prejudice against pork.

you can call something... something
if that's your penchant

it does not necessarily mean being open-minded
it only means
a person has an opinion
however based on whatever reasoning

do you follow?


Sounds to me like BC has taken the time to learn the facts of different religions.

fair enough
the facts founded and presented
making an opinion given on the particular bent of a particular view



So he puts his personal opinion or point of view on them.

again... fair enough


Maybe something about that strikes something in weedy sea dragon?

what strikes in the weedy sea dragon is this:

derision of my position based on his ignorance revealed
* not having met an enlightened master which i have *

so
B. Christ calls the kettle black out of known ignorance
and
i call the kettle black out of knowledge

now... is that fair enough?
