Nice. But I strongly warn you against getting into it. It is a giant vacuum - it sucks you in, trust me. Ugh. So glad I got out of it.

P.S. (Sorry, I forgot to mention it): Allan Watts' THE BOOK: The taboo against knowing who you are (spl?) is a fantastic read.

Hi Bodhi, Siddhartha by Hermann Hesse was one of my favorite reads; if you haven't read it, I think you'll like it. Allan Watts--whose own Buddhism-leaning outlook was based on a blending of eastern & western philosophies--is also great reading. Welcome & cheers, Dean

Hello! I'm actually more of a Taoist, but that would be splitting hairs wouldn't it? Neutral Monism and Yin/Yang is conceptually basic to all Eastern traditions and religions. But maybe i'm a Buddhist and i don't yet know it. So, why not tell me some of what you know? I would be appreciative :)

Hi! I like your Buddha quote: "We are what we think." So true.

Hi DR. terence,

Yes, I believe too. But most importantly, it says we are responsible of our lives and works through our actions, thoughts and words which linked inextricably of the web of causation(the Law of Karma) both spatial and temporal realms..

Buddhism is a way of life(not intellectual mind games) that makes no distinction between the individual human being and the environment in which that person lives. In its conception of the interrelatedness of all life forms in a complex web beyond complete human understanding, Buddhism has provided a spiritual and intellectual framework for environmental awareness. The Western worldview tends to be anthropocentric, placing humanity at the apex of the natural order. Buddhism on the other hand views humankind as a part of nature, supporting and giving rise to the notion of bioethics. Since every individual is connected to everything on earth, the destiny of our planet is influenced by the individual's actions.

One could easily gain the impression that Buddhism is primarily a system of intellectual abstraction or a means of escaping from material reality. For many the overriding popular image of Buddhism is that of an abstruse and impenetrable mystical teaching studied in monkish isolation, the goal of which is inner peace as an end in itself. There is a famous story about the historical Buddha that demonstrates why this view is incorrect.

While walking one day in Deer Park in Benares, India, the Buddha came across a deer lying on the ground. A hunter's arrow had pierced its side. As the deer slowly died, two Brahmans, or holy men, stood over the body arguing over the exact time life leaves the body. Seeing the Buddha and wishing to resolve their debate, they asked his opinion. Ignoring them, the Buddha immediately approached the deer and drew out the arrow, saving the animal's life.

Buddhism is a beautiful philosophy, but above all, it is about action.

I suppose that what Buddha was saying is that gods are all inside our heads, in our thoughts, in our imagination---which is what atheists have concluded too.
So welcome to Atheist Nexus----the world of reasoning, rational sense, and good friends. No dogma, no doctrines, just freedom for commonsense thinking.

There are lots of good discussion topics and many video films including ten lectures from Stanford University on evolution and Darwin.
