"Just got an email from Fred Nile. I'm pretty sure he's suffering under the delusion that I'm religious. :)
Thank you for your email regarding retaining Scripture in schools and for continuing in prayer with us…"
"@Fred, taking metaphor too far would be wrong. Not everything is metaphor. How far you take things literally is the same. It can be taken too far. One thing you will find in the Buddha's teaching is to be moderate in all things. That is one…"
"@Fred, your questions are good ones. They deserve much more than a cursory answer, but I am unable to give you that in such a small space, soooo...
No, mind cannot exist without body as far as we know. Body can exist without mind. It won't be…"
"@stephen I know what you mean. As Buddhism moved north out of India and through other cultures it picked up a lot of local beliefs etc. Everyone seems to think that Tibet was always Buddhist, but it wasn't. It was way into Animism and not a…"
"Maybe anyone that wants to make statements about certain topics should study the real thing first before making up their minds and mislabeling it. Putting everyone into one category based on a misunderstanding of what Buddhism actually is, is wrong.…"
"The cultural accretions that Buddhism has gathered over time as it spread have come to be what people see as Buddhism. Too much Hollywood has it being seen as very supernaturally oriented, which it isn't. Yes, there are sects of Buddhism that…"

"Just finished watching Compass and all I can say is that I am disgusted with the QLD authorities for allowing the Chaplaincy program to be foisted upon an unsuspecting public by not only stacking voting meetings, but also be allowing the Chaplains…"
"Oh yeah, nothing like allowing the nutters to have their say and cause more harm. Yay for balance. :(
Thank you for your email forwarded from The Greens (WA) on 28 May 2010, outlining your views regarding the…"
