    Part of the linguistic problem here is that in the west, philosophy and religion because separate things, while this did not really occur in the east, where they are melded together.


    That would not be a Buddhist question, as such.

    (At least, this is what I remember from my Buddhism and Philosophy of Religion classes.)
    You're right. It's not a "Buddhist" question. Deity is not something that Buddhism concerns itself with. It's one of the interesting aspects of Buddhism; it keyholes rather nicely into just about any theological position, because rather than being about how one interacts with the divine, Buddhism is more about how one interacts with one's self, one's surroundings, and reality at large.
    Thanks from Ian Jeffrey

    I'm not the least bit surprised. You've always been somewhat snippy toward others, and never been very gracious when you find yourself on the receiving end of such rhetoric.

    I'm only snippy with the intellectually dishonest.
