karma remembers who you are, even if you become someone else…
So kamma is something separate from you? How does kamma hold memory?

Re: Yesterday Trump Called Latinos "Animals"

I personally have no opinion on the matter. Okay, thanks. You've carelessly missed out a bit of my response. When asked "So do you think The President should be calling gang members...animals?" my response was a succinct but definite "No". I didn't carelessly miss out I deliberately cut out what se...

Re: Yesterday Trump Called Latinos "Animals"

He didn't specify MS-13 members when he called some immigrants animals, that was added alter after the outrage. You are right lyndon. This article is worth a read - There Are Lives Being Ruined.

So do you think The President should be calling gang members (if you don't consider gang members a demographic) animals?

Re: Yesterday Trump Called Latinos "Animals"

Well I don't think The President should be calling any demographic animals. Yes, I agree. But a "demographic" is normally taken to mean a particular section of a population, often defined in terms of age, income, consumption patterns, ethnicity, etc. It has been shown beyond doubt that Trump was (r...

Re: Yesterday Trump Called Latinos "Animals"

Intemperate language to be sure, but your post refers to "Latinos". I thought he had just referred to the entire Latin-American world, including those resident in the USA, as "animals". But in the link you provide, it says that he used the term to refer to some illegal immigrants, who were alleged ...

Re: VIDEO: White woman calls police on Blacks having a BBQ at the lake.

Greetings Mr Man, Paul, you asserted Race is irrelevant to the situation. How do you know that? Because I concisely summarized the situation from a legal perspective. Namely, "Person A calls the police because they witness Persons B & C breaking the law." Again, when someone is breaking the law, it...

Re: is birth control the same as getting an abortion

Killing is a kamma that leads to hell according to Buddhism. Although DooDoot does seem to be want to use Buddhism to support killing. The Buddha was not a type of extreme freak you wish to impute. The Buddha made a clear distinction between the Dhamma for monks & dhamma for laypeople. Killing in s...

Re: is birth control the same as getting an abortion

This is the way of an immoral & decaying world. Says DootDoot/Element who says that sometimes there is a "need for killing". https://dhammawheel.com/viewtopic.php?f=54&t=31755&start=40#p470653 And that believes that Putin's actions in Syria are good kamma. https://dhammawheel.com/viewtopic.php?f=54...
