  • Buddhists (and others if you wish) what do you think of this quote?

    Question by Lil: Buddhists (and others if you wish) what do you think of this quote?
    The religion of the future will be a cosmic religion. It should transcend personal God and avoid dogma and theology. Covering both the natural and the spiritual, it should be based on a religious sense arising from the experience of all things natural and spiritual as a meaningful unity. Buddhism answers this description .. If there is any religion that could cope with modern scientific needs it would be Buddhism.”
    – Albert Einstein

    I love it, personally. but what do you think?

    It is a good quote and Correct to an extent but it does not take into account the human factor, as some have a strong need and will teach this need to there children and others to be saved and protected.

  • Is it okay to say ” I respect the people from this religion more than I respect the people from that religion”?

    Question by Hodaya: Is it okay to say ” I respect the people from this religion more than I respect the people from that religion”?
    If I said, ” I respect Hinduism more than I respect Buddhism”, which reply would be more appropriate from a Hindu:

    a) Thanks!
    or
    b) I think people should be repsected for who they are, not for what religion they follow.

    What do you think?

    I think it’s highly inappropriate to judge people for what religion they follow. Sure there are fundamentalist Muslims, but I still respect Muslims and Islam. Sure there are fundie Christians that wish to convert me, yet I still respect Christians and Christianity.

    No religion is perfect, and people should be judged individually, not through generalisation. I respect Jews, Muslims, Christians, Buddhists, Hindus, Atheists, etc etc. Because we have something good to learn from in each tradtion.
    Chick-a-deester : Thanks! 🙂 Okay, I guess you make a good point in your answer.
    Mama Pajama: You may have guessed that my question was indirectly referring to that post ” Are there more atheists like me who respect Judaism more than they do Christianity?”
    🙂
    Mama Pajama: Perhaps I am mistaken. I am sorry if that offended you as a Jew. But that question offended me on behalf of the Christians. Paperback and angels have only thumbs up because they just said thank you, while I brought Christians into this.

    Anyway, Mama, in this post I’m not referring t white supremacist groups which are OBVIOUSLY concerning and horrible. I am referring to basic religions, such as Judaism and Christianity.
    My, Paperback, when I saw that you starred this I was already scared of what you were going to say!:-) I remember you were really mad at Alfred J. Kwak because of some things she said, even though she’s respectful to Jews.
    So I was surprised to see that your answer is so …tame. LOL.
    Ookay, enough about Messianics already. I think by now we all know that you don’t like them, and that they’re Christian evangelists. I do not ask you to respect them.

    I am asking, did you think it was perfectly alright for the poster to have said he respects Jews more than he respects Christians? Try to think objectively. What if his statement was reversed ( okay , it often is ,but anyway)?
    *********************************

    Yes, people, I did read the question. And I did read mama Pajama’s answer, and Mama, i appreciate your comment about the Christians. But your comment was the only one of its kind on that page. I know the ‘asker’ was saying that he respects Jews more because they never tried to convert them, but I disagree that Christians should be respected less simply because of OTHER Christians who do not behave very…er.. appropriately.

  • What’s the name of this kind of “Spirit Guide”?

    Question by Mad Hatter: What’s the name of this kind of “Spirit Guide”?
    i had no clue how to word the question, so my apologies for the vagueness of it.

    But: I’m looking for a particular word of this kind of person. I remember a physic talking about these kind of people who, as they sleep, help spirits go into the next world/afterlife, like through astral projection, or something. That is, they are some means of guide. I can’t remember what this is called, and it’s driving me crazy. Does anyone know what I’m talking about?

    p.s. I don’t need any remarks about whether or not this is true. I don’t care if it’s true, because it’s for a fiction story, anyways, so that doesn’t matter.

    The name would be conscience- or our left Luey. When we astral travel we merge our soul and travel back to visit someone in Hebew. Duey says that you last astral traveled to visit your Earth mom, about 4 days ago. Don astral traveled about 4 days ago too, to visit his Earth dad. Tom astral traveled back to Om about 6 days ago to thank him for reinstating him again:) I used to pray to remember my astral travel, but that never happened. It has been 1 and a half years since I have traveled, because I am suffering. i used to pray to astral travel in my sleep in Earth too, like to visit New York or something, but Duey says that we only travel back to Hebew. Maybe you can ask your conscience about your travel and who else you visit when you go back Home when you are sleeping.

  • Wiccan friends: What exactly makes this tea “Wiccan”?

    Question by Dogma (puppy due July 25th): Wiccan friends: What exactly makes this tea “Wiccan”?
    I’ve been looking for a loose tea for women’s health and found this:
    http://www.starwest-botanicals.com/product/1-wiccan-womens-tea.html

    I think I’ll be getting it (not while I’m pregnant, of course based on the ingredients). What makes in “Wiccan”? It seems like a women’s health tea. Just curious!
    Thanks, you guys have pretty much confirmed my suspicions. How odd. Looks yummy though!

    Nothing. Tea is tea. Don’t know where they got the ridiculous idea that a tea is religious (though teas may be used for religious reason).
