I'm not a Buddhist, but this is a very good thread to start a flame war so be careful what you say.

Why on Earth would me asking if there are any Buddhists here, start a "flame war"??
<BR>
<BR>Buddhists can have there own space, if that's o.k. with those of you who are criticizing me. <BR><BR><font size=-1>[ This Message was edited by: Halation on 2001-06-17 15:41 ]</font>

I think he's talking more to other people, he's saying to everybody "Don't say anything negative. Let's all just play nice." <IMG SRC="/phpBB/images/smiles/icon_smile.gif"> He's not being intolerant. I'd say you are for jumping down his throat. Be nice people! <IMG SRC="/phpBB/images/smiles/icon_biggrin.gif">

Im not Buddist_(im Jewish), but from what I've heard it sounds pleasant and relaxing. Most of them are very peaceful. I dont care if u worship stautes because a good persom is a good person no matter what they believe.

I wrote that post before I saw who started this topic. You just want to tell anyone who is that they are wrong.

Go Buddhists!!! Granted I am Agnostic, but means how I see so many people starting arguments about Christianity, glad to see a little diversity come into the mix. Gives more variety to the possible fights that I can read about <IMG SRC="/phpBB/images/smiles/icon_lol.gif"> Just waiting for Muslims, Jews, Hindus, and various others like Shinto to create their own posts so that people can see the shear variety that are out there. Who knows, we might actually get an Atheist and an Agnostic start up their own, but I won't be the one to do it because I am not going to be blasted by Halation for it <IMG SRC="/phpBB/images/smiles/icon_lol.gif">

Buddhists don't worship statues anymore than Christians worship crosses.

Why do tou think I would blast someone for starting a post on Agnostcism? I'm all for it.

I believe it because you are very strong on your views of religion. Seen you in multiple heated debates and arguments. Sometimes I think you let your emotions get the better of you, but that is just a personal opinion. Besides that, someone did create the post on Atheist and Agnostics.

Watch it. i've had to lock quite a few flame wars that came from religion lately. I don't want to have to do it again. Only warning before this shares the same fate.

I get the feeling that this was intended to start a flame war. Halation has been bashing Christians since day 1.(I forgive him though. <IMG SRC="/phpBB/images/smiles/icon_smile.gif"> )

Metalhead, I forgive you, too, for having no idea what my intentions are, and for assuming the worst.

<BR>We don't worship crosses. If we worshiped crosses we wouldn't be Christians. We believe in the bible and therefore go by it. Crosses are just symbolic to Jesus, and remind us he died for us and to thank god for this love.
<BR>
<BR>Also, did Anaconda say that they were Christian? You have no point.

We are trying to put an end to these types of posts. We appreciate your posting and using our boards but please do not respond to people trying to start flame wars. This will help us a lot. If you ignore them they will get bored and move on.

<BR>Thanks,

Hey mods, when are you going to LOCK this post? Is it somehow different than the ones I was involved in that you locked?

*Sigh* Can't you guys discuss anything without flaming each other? I'm only 13 and I feel like I'm babysitting! And Halation, why is it that everytime I see one of your posts in any topic concerning religion or politics, I think, "I bet this is turning into a flame war". It's almost like you have a reputation or something. <IMG SRC="/phpBB/images/smiles/icon_wink.gif">

Apparently you don't understand English. I said Buddhist DON'T worship statues anymore than Christians worship crosses. What that means in simpler terms, for those of you that are having a hard time understanding; Buddhists DON'T worship statues and Christians DON'T worship crosses.

<BR>Get it now??
