Who Is Allah?

Aug 24, 2007 | Posted by: roboblogger | Full story: The Brussels Journal

“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?”

From the desk of Soeren Kern on Fri, 2007-08-24 11:56 Europeans love to mock the salience of religion in American society. via The Brussels Journal

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.

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.

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.

Ramadan Kareem, MUQ
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.

when you know or understand something that no one knows , you only get smarter and more powerful everyday. your ideas and plans are bigger than the one before. you discover the world,and your mentors or leaders are nothing but mear humans that you can control from the bag of your exclusive knollege. why am I saying this, nothing am just board so I am here for fun so back to my bulcrap ,
to get this wisdom that will make you smart , you need the fallowing
1. need a arabic or heberew or geez or akadian or sumarian aramaic or what ever that is lisan shem dictionary
2. you need a book about music for dumies
3. you need the books of moses the old testaments and or the new testaments .
4. a pen and papers , a calculator
why ? because what I will tell you is a false statement. for fun to f k with your mind. This false statement should be said or shall I say I will say it in a way that should almost make sense or could be true . So here is the false statements why you need the 4 requirements mentioned above to attain this wisdom whitch is false.

in the beginig god created the heavens and the earth ?

why heavens and not " earths " ? are we really alone? lol , is not mars an earth ? is there not other word to discribe that god made this particular singular "earth " and another verb for mars , because common sense says mars and the moon or an astroied are not part of heavens . they are rocks ,solid , is heaven solid ? so mars should be part of earth but the book said " earth" singular , mars the moon etc were forgoten and were counted as a non " earth" rock but a solid visible "heavens ". NOW DO YOU LIKE THIS FALSE STATMENTS AND QUESTIONS ? more ? ok .

BY WHITCH CAME FIRST OF THE DEED OF GOD , HE SKY'ED AND HE EARTH'ED

sky'ed is the heavens for they are not solid . earth'ed is the solid . skying and earthying refers to every thing meaning plural even right now in english let alon in a sematic language created by god. speaking of language of god here is another false statement I just pulled right out of my bulst bagg. There is a code in the bible . surprised ? why would not be one,I mean seriously its a book from god . and why someone writting a book thats going to be the one book would not put a code ? I would . any ways this code are numbers and what u need is the 4 mentioned above . I will not give you any other hint. because I am having fun being the only one to notice when some one dips into there bulsht bagg. what will you discover ? I dont know . you tell me . I would love to see how you will walk up to a muslim a christian or a jew and say " let me explain to you what your messenger is trying to tell you " because you will discover nothing. there is nothing. its just a book. because this is a false statment and I am writting it because I am board .

Dictionaries and lexicons are aids. They are ostensibly written by those who know the subject. Some of us wonder about things beyond that which we can see, feel, and touch. We wonder how it is that the earth is the only known body with green plants and animals and things like these, including humans. Therefore, some of us look to God, or a Higher Power, unseen, for answers. I do not believe the earth and heavenly bodies just happened. I believe Someone caused them to be. Therefore, I also believe this Person or Creator is a superior being and knows more than we do.
