I'll simply repeat the one lesson you, like ol' Dio, failed to learn thus far in life as there is no learning past that one lesson:



Everyone is your teacher.




You, for instance, have taught me the meaning of the word blowhard.




Which proves my point.  




Bob, there is nothing you can do for a completely closed mind.

A tyrant must put on the appearance of uncommon devotion to religion. Subjects are less apprehensive of illegal treatment from a ruler whom they consider god-fearing and pious. On the other hand, they do less easily move against him, believing that he has the gods on his side. Aristotle

Yes, we can do that Wink

It proves your point that everyone is a teacher. 


It disproves your point that I haven't learned that lesson.


And now I've taught you a little something.

Nobody doubts you know you are a teacher.  But zero evidence exists that you are a student.  Saying you are.... simply suggests you are a dishonest teacher!

If we stop feeding the troll, it will head back to Loserville, population:itself.. It has nothing enlightening to offer anyone here regarding Buddhism and is a sorry excuse for a Christian.

when you say mean stuff do you realize you are creating suffering?  Is there not a moral implicit  that we should act to decrease suffering in ourselves and others?


As Buddha teaches there is an end to suffering, but without us taking responsibility it ain't gonna happen.


Does insulting another make you feel better ? I don't think so.

And dear Mainecaptain, I don't know what you believe. I'd really like to know.

>>>>Spare me the lecture, mijo. You aren't a Buddhist and don't really pay much attention to what Buddhists tell you in here.


Sometimes the best way to display compassion is to let someone know that they are being a dick to people. It may save them suffering down the road so that they don't try the same tactics in real life and run the risk of getting their teeth shoved down their throat. I don't see the need to put up with a troll who is here for the sole purpose of insulting Buddhists for more than a second. Buddhism doesn't require me to suffer foolishness.
