    Need a god-thing?  Have a god-thing.

    Don't need a god-thing?  Don't have one.

    It's all Buddhism. Buddhism doesn't have anything you "have to believe in".

    That's what baffles the westerners. (shrug)

      In fact, that's exactly what I said, some sects have gods. You're pushing an orientalist view that makes these religions/philosophies more unitary than they are in fact. That's my issue. I am very well versed on Buddhism, both "mystic" and other sorts. The last thing I need is a lecture on how I just don't understand things because I'm an atheist. I made some points and your response was basically "man, but you don't understand." I do understand perfectly well.

      If debt were a moral issue then, lacking morals, corporations could never be in debt.
