So ...


Has the Dahlia, I mean Dalai, Lama ever reincarnated as a woman? If not, why not? I would think the odds be 50 - 50, as the Great Zappa used to say. Could it be that the seekers have a misogynistic bent? How would that affect their accuracy? What story do they tell themselves to explain this lack of ... curiosity? ... flexibility? ... ability? on the part of their god-man? Inquiring mind would like to know.

Until I get a better answer, I'll just have to imagine that the monks who run that circus can't stand the idea of their leader titty f-ing some stud, or maybe getting pregnant. Pretty much anything else is gender independent. Then again, maybe it's just the old bleeding hangup. Any way you look at it, it doesn't look that enlightened to me.

Incidentally, I have no hangup about using the f-word, but other people seem to think a euphemism will protect children's sanity, so there you go. And you boys in high heels? Yes, I know about boob jobs, but can you really see the Dalai Lama getting a boob job?

Here's the thing of it with Hello Dalai..what does he do?
He works full time on pissing off the Chinese regime,
he advocates peace and tolerance,
hangs out with Richard Gere,
flys around the world saying hi to other monks...? Could be worse right.

The whole recycling thing is total nonsense and I'll bet that even he knows that, but what are ya gonna do?

It's not like the Fundie televangelists who tell everyone that they're going to hell and missing the rapture on sunday morning...the night after they were snortin blow off of a crack-addicted hooker's ass.

So I don't mind Mr Lama unless his dudes try to sell me flowers at the airport...that's where I draw the line :)

I don't mind the little bugger either. He actually once started a speech by declaring himself a fake. I view him as the real Forrest Gump. I decided I had to take a swipe at the process that made him in order to be an equal opportunity despiser of religious fraud. I wrote the post with a slant that was calculated to give him a laugh if he ever were to read it. Of course, I never said I was a good judge of character....

Most religions wouldn't know what to do with a vulva if it hit them in the face, so to speak.

Nice to see someone else is noticing this stuff.

It was the story of Marie Curie, told to me in First of Second grade I think, that made me realize that any claims to superiority on behalf of the entire male gender were greatly exaggerated. I'm glad I had a wide variety of heroes.

Hm. This is why polytheism is the way to go...

Of course, an all-male polytheistic religion would be worse than anything.

I haven't worshipped at a God's altar since I was a preteen, but I've certainly enjoyed the blessings of at least one Goddess. Made all my prayers come true. Well, for a couple nights anyhow.

Pixelaton: How right you are about the all-male aspect. If I could create my own universe, it would have many gods and goddesses for people to look up to and admire. So much nicer than squabbling over who is the one true super hero.

MichaelBanes: Everyone should have the joy of knowing one little (demi) goddess in their lifetimes. Since I'm not of the supernatural persuasion, I have moved on to the philosophy that all little girls are princesses, and the lucky ones grow up having been treated accordingly, though not spoiled rotten.

God bless you with discernment.

If you want God to bless me, why don't you stick your hand up there and make the mouth move? You don't need to wait on those freaks in the fancy robes.

The only thing God ever did for me was influence a lot of people in my life that believed. Since we'll never know if they would have been good and kind anyway, why don't we just give them the benefit of the doubt? I believe that anyone influenced by religious doctrine would also be influenced by a more honest social compact.

Seems to me like I already have discernment, since I can smell bullshit a mile away. What I lack perhaps, is decorum. And speaking of... what makes some religious types think that couching an insult in a positive-sounding prayer makes them anything but passive-aggressive?
