Re: Father kills son for raping toddler...

This seems to be a great case of ethics.... I thought the same thing, but along the lines of did the father do the right thing for killing the boy, or should he have let the courts handle it? After all, who hasn't read or heard someone say something along the lines of 'A pedophile deserves to be sh...

Re: Mafia Sign-ups

I'd like to sign up to a MAFIA game, in particular the Deathnote one, though I've never played on the XKCD forum before.

Re: Religion: The Deuce

Ahh, you are correct, Utnapishtim, I was mistaken and I I stand corrected. I also like the broadness of your definition of Christianity (no sarcasm). The problem is mythology, as Augustine pointed out. The 7 days story is an ancient Hebrew myth. It has NO importance to the teachings of Christ. I und...

Re: Buddhism

I think the interesting thing is that within Buddhism different Buddhists groups view others as more or less real. From my experience, Thereavadan Buddhists tend to see themselves as part of the older, most pure Buddhism, closer to what the Buddha himself taught. Mahayana/Tibetan Buddhists refer [p...

Re: Buddhism

It really just... depends. There are plenty of levels of Buddhism, and plenty of different ways of reading it. It could be taken as a religion, it could be taken as a philosophy, and it's never as straightforward as it looks. I agree that Buddhism is very multifaceted, as are other eastern religion...

Re: Re:

Talk to any of my Thai students for awhile about spirituality, and then try and continue to claim Buddhism is not every bit as much a religion as Christianity is. People who make that claim should keep in mind that Christianity also has its share of thoughtful, philosophical elements. It has argume...

Re:

I used to follow Buddhism, and still a fan of Dalai Lama. Buddhism is more a way of life than the stereotypical "religion." While our western religions stress faith and gods, eastern traditions stress personal discipline and doctrines of thought (think martial arts). Thoughts are the seed...
