It is not correct that i have not presentee any Sutta evidence. I have used the exact same Suttas as you and more including Ratana Sutta and the instances where the impossible deeds have been described. Furthermore i have explained every word like subsiding, restraining, virtues dear to noble ones and did not contradict it is all in line with the Sutta pitaka.santa100 wrote:After 57 posts in this thread, the readers have been presented with 2 sides of the topic: one with tons of evidences from suttas, teachers, and commentaries; and one without a single shred of evidence. I'd advise folks to read all the provided posts (those with explicitly stated sutta names, teachers, and commentaries; not those with only empty words/rhetoric) and decide for yourself what version is in line with the Dhamma and which one is not. It's not the first time me and the OP engage in discussions about the same topic. This thread here should give some interesting background info. and where we're coming from.
Your side however cant explain why the Buddha never said that he cannot break The Five precepts and why it was not stated among things that are impossible of which he did talk about on several occasions. Nor do you have any answers for the other etymological problems that you have been presented with.
