    You don't "ask questions" in good faith, and you aren't genuinely interested in any answers.

    The last time you attempted to compose a "gotcha!" post about a book I read it blew up in your face and you ran away from the thread like a little girl -->

    He also runs and hides when proved wrong. Sybil really does live in his own world.

    Like I said, it doesn't "ask questions" in good faith.

    I get a foul whiff of mental illness from that one.

    His manifesto, chronic lying about his socks and political views all indicate severe mental illness. He has average or better intelligence and education, but definitely wacky.

    You don't get to declare the "faith" of my questions. My question are my questions, and your job is to answer them, not to EVADE them, especially not with LAME excuses that stretch the boundaries of absurdity.

    You don't get to declare whether or not I want answers to my questions. If I ask a question, it's because I want an answer.

    I don't compose GOTCHA's. You EVADE legitimate questions because you are a pretender who has no business speaking at the adult's table.

    You fled that discussion also the moment I asked you a grown-up question that you, of course, could not answer. Your track record is 0% on providing correct answers, if I'm not mistaken.

    Let's review:

    For your convenience I have included the Dhammapada (with English translation) here:https://www.ancient-buddhist-texts.n...pada/index.htm

You are EVADING because you were once again caught trying to roleplay a thmart perthon and we're revealed to be ignorant on the topic. There is a valid reason that you lack credibility.

    All you had to do was to identify two gods in the Dhammapada, which you assert is "chock full" of gods and other supernatural entities. You instead rushed to somehow disqualify me from being able to ask any questions.

    Mara is the weakness of the flesh that all humans have and that requires discipline to conquer, whether to maintain a diet or to take a cold shower when you aren't getting any. Mara is often anthropomorphized in stories, but those are purely allegorical.

    Devas are just running characters in stories (parables, fables, etc..) like Sherlock Holmes. They aren't gods.

    Samsara is not a god; it is essentially this plane of existence whereby people are mere pain accumulators, from the moment of birth, through life, and then in rebirth through reincarnation. Samsara is the cold, hard, cruel world, as opposed to Nirvana.

    Hell is another plane of existence, i.e. the underworld.

    You aren't aware of any gods in the Dhammapada; you were just trying to sound really thmart and got carried away writing about something of which you know nothing. You obviously haven't even read it.
    There are no gods in Buddhism. The religion has a great deal of spirituality and supernatural concepts, but there are no deities. If you had bothered to read the Dhammapada before impulsively rushing to thound really thmart, you might not have made the junior-league rookie errors that you did. Apply this lesson to science and learn some before impulsively rushing to make stupid, scientifically illiterate, bandwidth-wasting comments.

    0%. You haven't answered any of my questions, and I'm not the only one posting on JPP who knows exactly why.

    I am not interested in sitting down and coloring with you at the children's table.
