Ok, i stop trolling, it's just so tempting in this forum!
Back to the thread, i've always felt a bit uneasy with the sexism of tao, especially Yin and Yang :
While being complementary,
- yin is feminity ...and passivity, darkness, ghosts, cold, slowness
- yang is masculinity, and activity, energy, sun
Ya, nice introduction to Taoism.
I wonder what vishva thinks about this?
While we must resort to words on this contentous forum, I must remind the readers that I lean towards vishvas views. Sure he's crude, uneducated and downright wrong sometimes, but he's bearing his soul.
Proof? Are you kidding? (Twitehead and the Lord Shark types), you cant prove God.
Some theists try to dish up goobly gook from the bible.
You see why I like telling stories. You either get something out of it or you dont.
There is no right and wrong. Its just stories.
What? You think your peer-reviewed scientific journals are going to get you anywhere? You guys dont even have a decent comment on Quantum-which is the nearest thing we have to describing reality.(I am reminded of the dialogue between twitehead and blackbeetle over at science)
So give vishva a break. He is telling a story. A story about Spirit being incarnated as man.
There is much rejoicing to be had for those who leave their intellectual-posturings behind.
Cheers big buddies🙂
