The you never really understood my point
You can tell yourself that, if you wish. But it is interesting to see this coming someone who keeps talking about my "belief in rebirth" when I never claimed such. Now, I have not read everything you have written, but I did read carefully what you wrote when we debated in this thread sometime ago. At that time you would not have admitted, so it seemed, that the suttas taught a literal rebirth. But whether I understood you or not:
So ok yeah, there is literal rebirth in the Suttas
this is the only point I wanted stated clearly, without equivocation. And there we have it.

There is freedom from birth, freedom from becoming, freedom from making, freedom from conditioning. If there were not this freedom from birth, freedom from becoming, freedom from making, freedom from conditioning, then escape from that which is birth, becoming, making, conditioning, would not be known here. -- Ud 80
