You are the only want who seems to be trying to limit the discussion.....you seem to want to limit the discussion to certain things and you seem to be specifically trying to avoid the actual topic of this thread as stated in the title and as expressed in the original post....
Have you read Ven. Dhammanando's posts here?
The topic here is asking for common sense explanations. The title of the thread is asking for common sense explanations.....the original post asks for common sense explanations.....now do you understand why people gave common sense explanations?....do you understand how come they did that?
This is the OP, again:

Is this the support for the story that Buddha's alms bowel went up word the Ganges river?
Clearly, the possible answers to the second question are at least Yes and No.
Everyone else here seems to understand.....except you.....what's up? Its not like your disconnect in this regard is subtle. It doesn't take much discernment to see that providing a common sense explanation is what was asked. This contrarian type of posting is not so unusual for you as can be seen by looking through your posting history.

That's right. Thanks.
I am just wondering this is just a natural up flowing of Neranjara river.
Of course not. It's an abbhutadhamma or miracle story. It would hardly have been worth reporting if the dish had just acted normally and floated in the direction one would expect it to float..


IN this thread it mostly started with your absurd declaration of your having a better understand of my mother in law than I have.......and it just keeps on keeping on......what.is.up?
I think your personal dislike of me is clouding your reasoning.
I have read dhammanando's posts.....dhammanando doesn't seem to have a problem with people bringing common sense answers....it is only you that seems to have this problem.
You seem to think that the answer to the question in the OP is clear....while if one looks at the posting one will see that it was not clear at all....specifically it was not clear that varanasi has nothing to do with the story and specifically that it was not clear what "backflow" meant.
....and to your "I think your personal dislike of me is clouding your reasoning."....this is 1. a disparagment of me for being such a cold hearted person as to not like someone for simply expressing their heart felt opinions, 2. a disparagment towards my posts by saying that my bias towards you has clouded my reasoning in what I say, and 3. just another of the many ways you use to avoid actually responding to what is being discussed because the discussion can clearly be seen that someone with a clear mind viewing what is happening will see what is going on.....so your only tactic to continue with your contrarian posting is to squirm your way to some other topic.
I have no dislike for you....I don't know anything about you except for your posts.....how could I dislike you?....as I said in a prevous post, "I want to reassure you that I am not agitated or in some hostile mood....I am quite calm. I am not saying this stuff to try to cause you grief. I am trying to hold up a mirror for you."

I think that you have convinced yourself that I have come here with the express purpose of bringing the disgusting view of a common sense explanation for the story. I think this is entirely a delusional fabication. I don't think that I have in any of my posts here offered a common sense explanation of the story. You disagree?....then go find that post and show me.

TO EVERYONE,
I think that maybe for some of you binocular's posting has convinced you that I have come here with the express purpose of bringing the view of a common sense explanation for the story. If you think something like that then I think that this is entirely your fabrication. If you think something like that then go find that post and show me......I don't think there is such a post.

Everyone, look at what is going on here.....
