Pol Pot... atheist.
Wrong! Pol Pot was a Theravada Buddhist and his violent actions against symbols of modern society were inspired by the Theravada ideal of renunciation of the material world.

No evidence.
Ergo, no reason to believe.

Actually, he does have a point there, on rare occasions even the resident troll gets one right. Many atheists are Buddhists, it's not uncommon, since there is no inherent belief in a deity, it's atheist.

In your case, no, you haven't gotten anything right that I am away of.

Maybe you can check with your other alias?

Except of course when you are forced to agree with the dozens of things that I have posted where I am of course absolutely right... looking the fool otherwise...

E.G.: sun in east, Sweden & UK monarchies... etc.

Yes, the Sun rises in the East.

Yes, Sweden and the UK are cosmetically monarchies.

You're the only effing halfwit who's ever said otherwise.

Buddhism have a foundation and is an ideology

Atheism doesn't have a foundation and isn't an ideology

Atheism describes only the lack of belief in a god, it is not an ideology.

Just so.

Barfy still has not recognized the difference between a constitutional monarch and an absolute monarch.

HI guys. Back briefly.

Yes, Barefoot is one of those two-state thinkers that are so prevalent among fundamentalists. In their view, there exist only two states...the two extremes. So in Barfy's mind there is a monarchy and there is a democracy. Never the twain to meet.

Oh Sweetie: I'm not the one who has to stomp.

I am the one who is, again, right.

Monarchies.

And I am far from the only one who has said otherwise.

And to say that they are "cosmetically" monarchies would of course belie the fact that the monarch of the UK has far more power than the monarch of Sweden.

PS: I haven't moved a fraction of an inch.

That would make me right.
