Jechbi,

Do you or do you not think Buddhist teachings preclude the idea of a supreme god who is a refuge for the universe?

The thread may not be about you, but you seem to pay no attention to what I have repeatedly said and you continue to focus on the words "Supreme God," as if I have said nothing else.

As for your other msg, it is hard not to read it as suggesting that I have deliberately twisted the Dhamma by twisting my translation to fit an agenda. Of course, as usual, you make no argument to support that, you merely assert it. It is an insulting suggestion, and like any ad hoiminem it points to a lack of a real argument.

If it makes you feel better to understand it that way, then that's great, Tilt. Do what you need to do.

I came accross this remark "May I draw your attention to the Sudatta sutta (SN 10.8)
in which Buddha teaches the young Anathapindada (or Anathapindika) on creation and creator.
Here he’s more than specific: no Creator, no Creation.
The Sudatta sutta is part of the Small Vehicle Pali, Agama, and Kanjur collections." here http://www.thinkbuddha.org/article/432/ ... od#comment.

The Sutta I found as SN 10.8 (http://www.accesstoinsight.org/tipitaka ... .than.html) doesn't seem to be about this topic. Could you please help me either with the source of the text (in English or Pali) or secondary literature on thdis sutta?

Thx & metta,

Roni

I'd rather tackle my own delusions before I move on to other people's.
