Who Is Allah?

There are 225053 comments on the The Brussels Journal story from Aug 24, 2007, titled Who Is Allah?. In it, The Brussels Journal reports that:

“Allah is a very beautiful word for God. Shouldn't we all say that from now on we will name God Allah? [...] What does God care what we call him?”

Varaha actually means the digger of roots that in physical terms is symbolized as a boar. It means a dynamic vital force that digs deep into the subconscient to get at the roots of personality defects.
Buddhism is a contradiction.

Explain how life existed before:
"According to the Buddha, there were lives before birth and there will be lives after death. This is what we call re-becoming (or rebirth). We don’t use the word ‘reincarnation. 1 When one attains nirvana, there is no more re-becoming."

Nirvana is simply a stilling or stepping back from the outgoing waves of mind, vital and matter. It is not supramentalization that leads to perfection and physical immortality. An individual who attains to nirvana moves out of the centrifugal and cyclical rhythms of consciousness and energy and can if he quits his body by drawing out his psychic stay aloof from the frontal workings of nature. He can if he so wishes re-enter the whirlpool and reincarnate in any family of his choosing if he wishes to help others attain to the same state of liberation or if he wishes to further his own development of consciousness by rising beyond nirvana. So, there's no contradiction.

You know nothing about your own Christianity, so don't talk about Buddhism. Even Jesus could not attain Nirvana.

Have you ever studied Humanities?

Buddhism is no different then the theory of evolution.
It has no beginning, it relies on already created matter and energy.

In this case, the true Buddhist view is that the impersonal stream of consciousness flows on — impelled by ignorance and craving — from life to life. Though the process is impersonal, the illusion of personality continues as it does in this life.

In terms of Absolute Truth, there is no "immortal soul" that manifests in a succession of bodies, but in terms of the relative truth by which we are normally guided, there is a "being" that is reborn. In order to gain Enlightenment, it is necessary to come to a realization of the situation as it is according to absolute truth; in order to face and begin to understand the problem of death we can, in the first instance, view it in terms of that "relative truth" which normally rules our lives and which has its validity in its own sphere. We need merely, for the present, to remind ourselves that this is but a "provisional" view of things. In this connection, too, we have to observe that we are dealing only with the question of death as it affects the ordinary person, not one who has attained Enlightenment.

In other words our lives live on after death in the body of other people.

Nirvana enlightenment is obtained through the consciousness of other people after death.
A never ending pattern of consciousness.
Complete Hindu bull-shit.

Breast-feeding longer boosts baby's IQ later in life, study says

Next time you wonder how your friends or colleagues got so darned smart, consider this: It may have something to do with how long they were breast-fed. A new study from Harvard University shows that children who are breast-fed longer have higher IQs than formula-fed kids, and the longer and more exclusively kids are given breast milk, the better. Researchers are careful to say it's an association, not causation, but each month the child was breast-fed exclusively in the first six months, he or she gained four-fifths of a point in verbal IQ by age 7. "It’s not like you get an early advantage that falls away. Their study showed that the advantage seems to persist,” said Sean Deoni, head of Brown University's Advanced Baby Imaging Lab.

<quoted text>
Good is part of a dualism and so where there's good there's also bad. I(t's a play of the forces of good and bad with each jostling the other and attempting to dominate the play.
Buddha's innate nature was drawn from the Illumined Mind and so was transcendent - above the dualism of good and bad which are attributes of the physical, vital and mental ranges of consciousnesses.
The Higher Mind, Illumined Mind, Intuition Mind, Overmind, Supermind, Bliss and other superior ranges of consciousness stand above the lower triple planes of mind, vital and matter and are more inclined to the transcendental in an ascending hierarchy than to the dualism of good and bad which are inherent characteristics of the lower planes of mind, vital and matter.
Read the Buddha's grand teachings and read about his sublime actions and you'll learn why he was transcendant and not within the realm of the dualism of good and bad or light and shadow.
So let me try to understand this. Buddha was neither a good or a bad person? And an auxiliary question is who sets the standards for what means goodness or badness?

rabbee: and if you go into any research, with forgone conclusion. then you will slant your research results to support those preconceptions.

if you look long enough, if you measure a sufficient number of attributes, and if you are highly selective, you can eventually find statistical evidence to prove or disprove any claim.

I must also appreciate the manner in which you are conducting your exchanges with our friend Seeker, who has still a long way to go in order to be able to understand Isaiah, who cannot be understood using Greek glasses.
The Greek language is the mother of all confusions and problems in Christianity and it is the sole reason for her inability to grasp the Hebrew Scriptures, which we find it very easy to grasp.

I Thank you for following it our little chit chat.

He started with big boasts that No One can stand in debate with him and runs away.

I took the challenge and started it slowly and one step at a time.


He is trying to "Jump the queue" and start his vehement condemnation of our prophet, but I will bring that subject, Inshallah at its proper time.

Thanks once again for your comments.

Salaam and Ramadan Kareem.
