It lives!

Or at least it has been reincarnated.

You guys invited me to discuss Buddhism so I went through the threads and I think I found those that deal with it and posted to them. Now I see responses that seem intended to insult and at best are unresponsive. So I guess the invitation was not real.

A few remarks. First, the middle way is recommended, including being moderate in following it.

Second, the Buddha did not to my knowledge ever claim to have the Truth. What he had was a way, and he seems to have thought there are many ways.

Third, it would be theoretically possible to be a Muslim ("There is no God but Allah and Mohamed is his prophet") and still be a Buddhist. Buddhism is agnostic about God and would accept Mohamed as a prophet. I doubt the Muslims would tolerate it though.

The Paarsurreys thoughts on Buddhism were that it wasn't Islam, therefore Allah (pboouh). Not sure how one can get much further than that.

The four comments preceeding the one quoted above referenced the dark history of the forum and the topic floating to the top of the list again. None of the comments were about or to you. Somebody may respond to you remarks, but there's no obligation on others to do so, and if they do there's no obligation to meet any particular member's expectations. .

TBH, I'd have much preferred if you hadn't dragged a thread started by a particularly egregious troll to the top. Start a thread of your own, not least because we haven't had a Theravada Buddhist before.

Yeah, you may want to start your own thread then, reopening lots of long dead threads, while not 'illegal' is generally regarded as bad etiquette.
And there was no insult. Paarsurrey was a dickhead which is why he was eventually disposed of. Bad Karma I guess.
