Re: Why Buddhism is not growing?

Jews tend to be overrepresented in virtually all intellectual areas.

Firefighters and carpenters? Not so much. :tongue:

Re: Why Buddhism is not growing?

In fact, Arthur C. Clarke a futuristic visionary, in one of his books, mentioned that Buddhism will be the only religion that will survive by the year 2050 and that scientist cannot hammer it down or destroy it. It sounds like you think Arthur C. Clarke was a Buddha with psychic powers. The way the...

Re: Poe's Law - Defense

Greetings, Did I not just say I'm not partaking in your martyrdom? No it wasn't me. Correct. Only adminstrators have the ability to revoke a member's "signature" access when they abuse it. Similarly with other functions (like editing, or PMs) that members can, but thankfully rarely abuse. Metta, Pa...

Re: Poe's Law - Defense

I just will continue to compassionately warn innocent would-be victims of the truth until I am banned again. You're trying way too hard to get that to happen. I won't support your martyrdom this time. Meh, I could care less. Its obvious your intent is to continue to allow low IQ individuals like Da...

Re: Poe's Law - Defense

Suddenly you have something good to say about me. After all the insults documented in the thread and elsewhere? I don't believe you. I don't believe you are honest at all. ... Believe whatever you want. Believe I banned you in that thread two months back (when I didn't) because I was too "cowardly"...

Re: Poe's Law - Defense

The very fact that threads are taken down which critisize pay-for-play "Dhamma teachers" who charge exorbitant amounts of money to learn "Dhamma" is about as evident as it gets. YES, I know about that.... I don't know what threads you are referring to, but I'd be just as against such a thing as you...

Re: Poe's Law - Defense

The fact remains, this is not a Buddhist forum. It is a bathroom wall filled with graffiti, lies and misinformation. There does seem to be some truth in that. I was engaging in some friendly exchanges about Pali compound nouns, some videos made by Sujato, and the inclusion of Sati within Samadhi, a...

Re: Poe's Law - Defense

who is incapable of addressing any of the content, which amounts to either laziness or something else. I addressed it directly. All we're trying to do here is maintain a discussion space where all aspects of Theravada can be discussed. It is a combination of making sure individuals aren't attemptin...

Re: Poe's Law - Defense

Implosion? Sure, but you are just a troll. Really Buddhists can see this. You have dedicated your life to being a troll. So I thank you for your....compassion.... But the fruit of cause and effect will take its course, internet slanders aside. Just because you decided you understood what I am think...

Re: Poe's Law - Defense

Either way, if a few people who don't know anything about Theravada, who want to learn what it is gets this message, than the sheep dog has done his job. And I'm very happy you wrote this...it is refreshing when people are honest about their intentions. Let me know when you become capable of this f...

Re: Poe's Law - Defense

Should we base the theme off of what you have been posting about in "General Theravada Discussion" for the last 24 hours? I was posting about Islam in the past 24 hours, so your snub is, as all of your other content you post on here - worthless, like a fart in the wind. The fact that this is all yo...

Re: Poe's Law - Defense

Dhammawheel, of course, is not a Buddhist forum and it is not about the Dhamma. And has very, very little to do with Theravada. Should we base the theme off of what you have been posting about in "General Theravada Discussion" for the last 24 hours? I was posting about Islam in the past 24 hours, s...

Re: Poe's Law - Defense

Potemkin Villages are intended to fraudulently convince people that a simulacrum is reality. But no such claim about reality has been made here, as far as I can see. While that sounds superficially open-minded the fact remains at the top of the board here, what is written: Dhamma Wheel Buddhist for...

Re: Poe's Law - Defense

I see a lot of ad-hominums here. Yet no mentioning of the suggestion within the O.P. Anyone want to take a stab at it, or is insulting Buddhists the equavalent of an argument here? Your suggestions within the OP seem to amount to banning or otherwise proscribing certain content here on DW. For exam...
