Quote from: MeltingMan on November 18, 2015, 15:55:18Quote from: erpomata on November 16, 2015, 08:37:31god killed more people than hunger...In the name of Lord and then I have to agree.I grew up in a catholic family,too,and I don't think that this kind of bringing up was completely wrong.On the other hand,it's easy to promisea life after death with reportedly thousand virgins,when no-one had ever returned from "there" to tellthe whole story.No-one claimed also that living in democracy is easy.I mean the problems with those guys have beenknown for decades,as well in Germany and something have to be done.We will see...

Quote from: cheyler on November 19, 2015, 05:56:42I'll bet the European leg starts in France. Cross the channel (by boat) and you're there! I get the impression that RS takes a somewhat fatalistic view of life and he won't be dissuaded by a 'single' incident.
Quote There is no terror in my heart Death is with us all We suck him down with our first breath And spit him out as we fall There is no terror in my heart No dread of the unknown Desire for paradise to be..."I live in knowledge of real truth And all my gods are great!" The doleful cant of a bigot Blinded by fear and hate You live in knowledge of real truth? Oh the biggest lie I heard
Quote from: cheyler on November 18, 2015, 21:22:08 The threats and intimidation and forced guilt I got from the catholic priests 40 years ago are, to me, nearly the equivalent of war crimes. Telling a kid he or she is going to hell unless you do this or that (or more importantly, to them, unless you DON'T do this or that) is criminal beyond description and I will have nothing to do with any of it.
Quote"We cannot solve this problem only through prayers," he said, possibly referencing worldwide calls to #PrayForParis. "I am a Buddhist and I believe in praying. But humans have created this problem, and now we are asking God to solve it. It is illogical. God would say, solve it yourself because you created it in the first place."When the interviewer suggested his sentiments of peace, love, and compassion have fallen on deaf ears around the world, the Dalai Lama declined to entertain a pessimistic view. "I disagree. I think that only a small percentage of people subscribe to the violent discourse," he said. "We are human beings and there is no basis or justification for killing others. If you consider others as brothers and sisters and respect their rights, then there is no room for violence."

Yes,for the upper class,which have the meansand resources for existence it's easy,but for the lower class living by constant fearfor one's livelihood it's hard.By the way the book wasn't published during his lifetime...

Quote from: cheyler on November 19, 2015, 19:12:14It's probably obvious I don't have the faintest idea how this quote stuff works..
Quote from: cheyler on November 18, 2015, 21:22:08Technically, one person did come back (or is it two? either way I don't buy it for a minute) but I guess they were all too busy putting their eyeballs back in their heads to get any actual information and he was off again. Did I mention that I don't buy it for a minute?
