What is

  1. Oct 26, 2004 #1
    ...the quickest way to win an argument ???

    remove the right of reply...

    What the hell was all that about in the karmic thread Tom and Jerry ??? A cartoon ???

    Tom raises a whole bunch of assumptions on the nature of God based on flawed western interpretations equates it to karma in a haphazard fashion to prove karma and God cannot co exist and then Jerry stomps in and closes the thread just when it was looking promising.

    Where is the evidence of claims made ??? where is the open discussion ???where is the valuable insight to be learnt ???

    This is exactly what I was talking about as being the flaw and you proved it. "Do as I say not as I do" based on what ??? A superior set of morals ???

    NO !!! more like power tripping and butt covering. Tom covers Hypno's butt and Jerry covers Tom's.

    Grow up kiddies, the game is up at least i play fair and openly. You aren't fit to judge any body by your standards as they don't apply to those from outside of your percieved reality/culture.

    Try taking a hopi indian or an australian aborigine to task about his intuition and instinct and dismiss them with your flawed logic and reason.

    Bah i don't know why I'm bothering here . You guys don't want to learn and I can't be bothered doing your homework for you. Take a good long hard look in the mirror and see if you can see what I see.

    as you were

    If you don't like the way we run the place, we'd like you to note the door opens from the inside, too.

    RingoKid, if you still can't see what the objections of Hypno/Tom/Kerrie to your so-called arguments were, then clearly you do not belong here. Apparently you have come to the same conclusion, so there is nothing left to say. Try not to let the door hit you on your way out.

    thanks guys...

    I was wondering where the butt stops, apparently it doesn't. It just keeps getting passed wind.

    In my culture our houses don't have doors. We come and go as we please and we always have the right of reply in the tradition of polynesian oratory. Your considerations have been noted.

    The door is opening but not many can see it and in the very near future I think it is you and those like you who are likely on the way out.

    ...as you were

    I didn't try to prove anything. What I did write was a brief synopsis of the problem of evil, and what karma is according to Buddhism, and why it is entirely unclear that your response answers the question. If the interpretations of god are flawed, then your issue is not with me but rather with the classical problem of evil. It's a standard problem in basic philosophy courses, and it was the topic of that thread.

    Then don't.
