Given what you said above, I could have added rocks and fairy dust to the list.christopher::: wrote:Seems we disagree again, as usual.
Concerning your dog, cat and gecko- they are different from one another in countless ways. They are similar in that all have skeletal systems, all are sentient, and are nothing like rocks.
You complain about me being disrespectful towards other religions, and you are here showing a massive disrespect to towards the highly sophisticated notions of god that are readily available in Christianity or Hinduism, assuming blue skin is a reference to Krishna. Have actually ever read the Bhagavad Gita?The ideas of Tao, Dharmakaya, Force and Ayin are similar in that a) they all point towards some cosmic principle, power, law or source that is involved with the way things work in our Universe, and that b) none refer to a man in a white beard (or with blue skin) who created the Universe and is watching over everything.
As for being similar, what you are saying here is very vague. It does not yet tell us anything meaningful, or show that you have good grasp of the concepts involved in a way that warrants them being clumped together.
Kinda different, enough so that it is maybe not quite so reasonable to clump these things together.Other then those similarities, they are also different in countless ways.
We’ll see.You may disagree. And yes, if we explore this politely i'd be willing to discuss, though not now, as i have a plane taking off for Japan tomorrow and need to get back to my packing.
