    Your childish threats are as irrelevant as they are laughable. LOL.

    It's not my childish threats you should fear; it's God's condemnation upon you. All you atheists have proven is that God is not necessarily benevolent. It is entirely possible that a vengeful and wrathful God still exists.

    If u really look at religion closely, the very God they are describing sounds very Evil to me. What kind of God fries his own children in hot oil?? what kind of loving holy father burns us in hell for eternity because we disobeyed him without even knowing that we were supoosed to obey in the first place? This God sound more like a dictator, the mega powerful being who preys on the whole universe.

    You think a scientist would agree that you saw the angel of death?

    How do you know what the "angel of death" looks like?

    Mazulu -- I'm not seeking to disrespect your beliefs, but do you honestly think it's sensible to worship a Deity, because you fear condemnation? And frankly, should God exist, you have no earthly idea as to if or how he will judge mankind. If your faith means anything to you, then you should seek the best for those who disagree with you, not the worst.

    Food for thought.

    I don't know what it was that I saw; other than it was some kind of entity. Maybe there are entities that exist that sometimes appear as the angel of death. I don't know. But I did witness something.

    Maybe you were all in the heat of the moment (it was a seance, after all) and merely thought you experienced something. Tricks of light and shadow that have become more substantial in your memory. Just a thought.

    That is possible. But neither of us were there. Neither of us saw what he saw, just as he hasn't seen what we've seen. I don't think that we are in any position to tell him that his experiences are not valid, even if we do disagree with his conclusions. By the same token, neither is he. Personal experiences are, by definition, subjective.

    No, it was the middle of the night. I woke up and there it was about 10' away. It was a black cloaked figure with a veltet mask. It was standing at the door. Not a shadow, not a dream, not a trick of light, not a human dressed in a cloak. It was an entity.

    If he describes his experience as "I saw a ghost," then yes, we are in a position to tell him it was not valid. You'll notice, however, I'm not telling him that he didn't see anything; I'm asking him what happened, and if he has explored any reasonable explanations.

    So how do you know it wasn't just a human dressed in a cloak? Did you get up to investigate?

    I was trying to make a distinction between types of ideas, because many people seem to think they will find some philosophical data that will make their choices perfectly clear, so they can say, "this is the only way to go".
    well, i do think criteria can be applied, but not in a way that will allow us to have perfectly ironclad statements like, "if I drop this it will fall."

    I'm just trying to make you understand what "spiritual (or transcedental) envy" is.

    You often claim that people are just irrational and such, and I'm pointing out that there is some method to that madness, namely, envy.

    Ah. Why lower the standard of analysis?
    What's wrong with looking for the perfect formulation?

    In one sense, this is precisely what Buddhism is about - looking for that one way to explain things that will make one's choice perfectly clear, so that one has a clear sense of "This should be done, that shouldn't be done."
