    You should have mentioned this is your "does anyone want to be my friend" thread in General, you would have got a much better response irrespective of whether you are or not - most of these string-vesters here don't care as long as you stick a decent photo of a hot babe in your profile pic - like mine for example.

    They don't believe in any god, do they?
    Because Bhudda himself isn't a god...

    I dont know, seems there is no that much real difference in their beliefs except that bhuddists believe in self-realization

    he is mocking you.

    my advice is read the bible and the quran. stay away from mormonism and scientology. cannibalism and voodo is sucky as well. buddhism is not so much a religion but a philosophy though i don't know much about it. i hear good things about it though.

    and one last advice. if you are a good person, it mostly doesn't matter what you choose. from my perspective as a christian, jesus will be a little dissapointed if you pick others than him and you might get a much crappier parking spot in heaven.

    It wasn't so much mockery as it was a slightly mischeivous suggestion she seeks delusion (given she would move from a null state of belief to belief in a particular set of religions - ignoring others); this I fear was overly shrouded in metaphor so as to occlude my point from the sight of its intended recipient.

    It's not actually my style to mock new people.

    well you seem to think that religion is delusion so i submit the idea that that too is a form of mockery.

    would you call a dude who is certain his wife loves him delusional?

    The important point here is she implied a state of non-belief in any particular religion; thus to move from this state to one particular (out of a theoretically infinite number of) formulation(s) of a god (subject to flavourings and additives) is to actively chase delusion; since as I've stated elsewhere, there is no valid way one can establish one supernatural thing is any more plausible than another supernatural thing. Of course it follows from this I do indeed regard belief in religion as delusional (more delusional than a weaker belief in some wholly undefined supernatural entity).

    I wouldn't call him delusional if the cues he was biologically 'engineered' to register were appraised in a rational manner, yet led to the false conclusion his wife loved him. Wrong maybe, delusional no.

    there is no valid way one can establish one supernatural thing is any more plausible than another supernatural thing - Agers smagers!

    I say pants !

    one only need to look at the teachings of a particular religion in order to make a comparative study and use ones discernment, for the teachings are a reflection of the deity that it purports to represent.

    Personal experience ,and correct intepretation of that experience, is more plausible/important than just scriptures alone. Scriptures can compliment your experiences, not the other way around.

    I saw an interview with the former Cat Stevens. He says he had a "gentle spiritual experince" that made him turn to Islam.
    I just use this as a popular example of one who made a decision in his spiritual life ,and stuck to it.
    I'm not a fan of Cat or Islam (so much), but I am a fan of the apparent process he undertook to reach his conclusion about his own spirituality. Experience based on his own convictions.

    we are not trying to establish plausability, that is imposible. instead try to think of him as a man seeking spirituality, a new view on life. in this regard, you CAN compare and contrast and choose the religion that suits you better. maybe he would be more comfortable as a christian than a muslim. for that matter, his search for spirituality might even yield a "i am content with my current status" result.
