Now the funny thing is that following the buddhist path requires a desire to achieve a sate of nirvana.

I told this to my tutor and he could not see the solution.

That comment was in reference to a shitty song that was released sometime in the 90's.

This of course would beg the question, if that's the case, does God influence us or do we influence God?

I suppose we'd be components of 'his' psyche.

I doubt she wasn't trying. Christianity still exists these days for two reasons; it's a coping strategy and/or their parents and/or peers had Christian principles. The latter exists originally because of the former. As Slacker proved, we have historical evidence of this hypothesis.

You people are reading far too much into this.

You've completely missed the point of this thread. I'm all for happiness, I'd take happines over intellect any day of the week. But because of the evidence we have, the 'happiness' based around Christian principles has become untenable.

It's not even a 'happy' religion anyway; it's fucking arrogant and bigoted.

And for the record; if eternal life, eternal happiness and eternal meaning are not things worth looking into, I don't know what is.
