    Maybe in your terminology it is "under-gratudate"? I think you call a Masters degree "graduate"?
    If I recall well last time I saw Max posting about his academic education he said he is doing his Phil. Masters, or planning to do.

    salaam.

    He has a Bphil from Kings (apparently, I still won't accept it until the dean himself tells me face to face) and is about to start an Mphil (I think).

    It will be interesting indeed to hear how he defends his thesis with something like, "Heidegger had it all wrong-- he was really a mushroom and didn't know it!" :D

    until you get your undergraduate (bachelor) degree, you are an undergraduate, when you graduate with your bachelors degree, you become a graduate, when you begin postgraduate study (masters, phd, mphil etc) you become a postgraduate

    how did your spiritual practise increase your self awareness?

    ie, in what sense are you more self-aware now, than you used to be?
  15. Aldebaran

    Aldebaran TheMadArab.IslamicFascist

    No, you claim that the Buddha, Jesus, Muhammed, in fact all who ever claimed Divine Revelation/inspiration never existed.

    salaam.
  16. max_freakout

    max_freakout Nothing matters

    if i have claimed that, please use the search function and actually quote me

    i have claimed no such thing

    i think that lots of Muhammeds, lots of Jesuses etc existed

    you claimed that all Christians are animals ;):p

    the story has taken on its own energy. that energy will exist whether or not the story is about a historical character or not.

    we are jesus!

    1.No they don't.
    2.Since you claim such reference in sources backdating between 4000 and 600 BC you give it. I'm not exactly in to reading the whole of the vedänta here. (I don't even have it here, and I don't see the relevance)

    salaam.
  20. Aldebaran

    Aldebaran TheMadArab.IslamicFascist

    Read your OP.

    What?
    I claimed my mother was an animal?
    I said in a few other threads that all humans are animals.

    salaam.

    so to repeat the point i made, there is a literalist disunity between religions, because they tell different stories, about different people

    you claimed that this is not true, yet there are no references to Muhammed in the Upanishads, just as their are no references to Prajapati in the Koran

    so i rest my case :)
  22. max_freakout

    max_freakout Nothing matters

    i did, and it does not contain the claim that you say it does,

    if you disagree, then quote the relevant part

    yes dont deny it now, you said all christins are animals, that they are all wrong and they are all going to burn in the hellfire of allah for eternity

    you said it just last week, when you quote me saying what you claimed i claimed, i will quote you claiming this ^ :p

    1. I said you clearly didn't read the Bible or Al Qur'an while you claimed all religious texts are about "different stories".
    2. You also don't know that Islam recognizes all former Prophets of God, those that are known and those that are unknown by Muslims.

    I think that yes, you really should rest your case before more damage is done.
    :)

    salaam.
  25. Cid

    Cid Degenerate Scum

    You claim that none of the 3 are historical figures, ie you claim that they did not exist. You can't swim around that by saying there were lots of them. I mean it's not a crap argument, in some ways I agree with you, but you do explicitly deny the existence of the historical figures in the various texts.

    Aldebaran TheMadArab.IslamicFascist



    You must be delusional under influence of your beloved mushrooms.
    But don't hesitate to waste a year or two of your life (I don't know how big the database of U75 is) to find such a post of me.
    (Hint: It doesn't exist)

    I repeat: Read your OP.

    salaam.
  27. max_freakout

    max_freakout Nothing matters

    what you claimed, was that religions dont tell different stories about different people, this is false (all you said was "no they dont", twice)

    the Upanishads do not tell stories about Muhammed/Abraham/Adam and Eve, and the Koran does not tell stories about Mandukya/Janaka/Prajapati

    therefore, different religions tell different stories about different people, and your claim was wrong

    there is a very obvious unambigious, literalist disunity between religions
  28. cesare

    cesare Tramp. The. Dirt. Down.

    But what is the point of your case?

    It's a big 'so what?'
  29. max_freakout

    max_freakout Nothing matters

    i did, and it does not contain the claim that you say it does,

    if you disagree, then quote the relevant part

    Aldebaran TheMadArab.IslamicFascist

    No I said there are no such discrepancies between the (Thora)Bible and Al Qur'an, which proves your assertion was totally made up.
    Al Qur'an indeed refers to all former prophets of God. Which proves you wrong, again.
    There is no disunity possible in the belief in God. You believe, or you don't. How you put that believing in practice has no influence on that. Again: you are wrong.

    salaam.
