Try correcting your wording so that you don't taste foot.
We have no writings of Sewcrates, but that does not mean that he did not write anything down.
You stated that he did not write anything down. You do not know that to be the case, so the rest of your argument fails at the first step.
Just try to be honest.
I know that it is difficult at times, but give it a shot.
he wrote nothing of his teachings that we know of. does that make you happier? it conveys the same idea as posted from earlier that the master didn't record his own teachings with his own hands.

see how you took what was written and based it on your ideas?

<quoted text> Critics can think what they want. It does not affect my pay grade. But i got to admit, i am getting sick of all this. Most Christians i know associate these type threads as intellectual and spiritual lepar colonies. They think i am nuts for coming here and i am beginning to see their point. Assuming they were once Christian and walked away they should be shunned.
Then why not do as your Bible instructs and shun us? Are you going to be disobedient for the rest of your life, thereby willingly jeopardizing your salvation?

Dusty....maybe I am just tired or desensitized as one can only be morally offended so many times before they start to go numb. Topix just really cant surprise me any more and it has done little to help my lack of confidence in man. I wanna believe more people than not are decent people that have empathy and basic respect for one another. Maybe I am kidding myself. But help me understand. The man is dead. What possible reason can there be for intruding on the grief of those who cared about him and to do so for seemingly no other reason than to appease your own ego. For God's sake Dusty, its over either way. Let his friends honor his memory without fending off attacks from the outside. Please stop pursuing this

siddhartha gautama didn't write down his teachings or any personal information what most historians agree upon.
In case you don't know, an autobiography is written by the person about himself while he was alive. You said masters donh't tend to write down their own teachings. I showed you that you were wrong with the books I posted. You deflect and say you aren't interested in autobiographies...the teachings of people who write them down themselves. Some of those are as far back as 3000 BC.

Feel free to paint yourself into a corner again any time you wish.

You mean you're not interested in truth, facts and the like. And you're embarrassed that you know so little of any of those. Gotcha.

ah you're professing to be a prognosticator now?

i'm not interested in knowing everyone else's business, even if you are. if that makes me your embarrassment, i'm quite satisfied.

i never made any claim of knowing everything, unlike maybe the sea cow?

Another vacuous statement.

I remember what you wrote.

And you were wrong on both claims.

But the point you wanted to make relies on your false premises.

So rather than modify your point, you dance.

I'm okey dokey with that. It don't harm me.

You would just find someone else to make it obvious to.

You come to this thread and scream your ignorance of your own religion as well as reality and expect us not to point it out ?
