are you trying to convert me,ha,no offence,just a joke,to be honest,i dont believe in those things ,i believe in science and evolution but it doesnt
stop me having many buddhist friends.people could have their different opinions about the world and the life,we dont call those who have different
ideas from us"unenlightened".let's agree to disagree.
Definitely not trying to convert anybody. I am not attached to Buddhism
it is just that I've never heard a better explanation for karma or for
what the nature of the mind is from scientists. Science can give us the
H-bomb to blow up the world but they do not have any idea about
re-incarnation, karma or the mind. An enlightened being's main
philosophy is not to harm life whereas scientists make weapons that
destroy innocent children therefore who is more rational? Who is more
intelligent? Of course there is good science that helps but when you
throw generalities like science out than your argument can be easily
repudiated. Einstien said "Energy cannot be created nor destroyed."
There's the top scientist of the 20th century giving life energy a vote for re-incarnation.
I'll listen to Einstien and Buddha not random bloggers.
Evolution like Creationism are theories. Earth could easily be a genetic
experiment to upgrade apes by advanced aliens (as in 2001-A Space Odyssey).
Therefore evolution has not been proved 100 per cent.
And the very reason that aliens and UFO's according to their patterns
interact only minimally with humans could be due to them not wanting to be pulled into an earth-human karmic cycle.
As I said- everyone but very few people are unenlightened-
please go back and read what I said and you will see there's
not an iota of insult there.
