Listopencil is a wise man. And I have to say if I could be anything a Buddhist is a pretty damn good choice. Dated a Buddhist chick for awhile and did the Nam Myoho Renge Kyo chant a few times. It and the yoga I do are really a beautiful thing.
To argue with a man who has renounced the use and authority of reason, and whose philosophy consists in holding humanity in contempt, is like administering medicine to the dead, or endeavoring to convert an atheist by scripture.
