LOL, the number of angry atheists on Youtube are hilarious.
Religion, religion, omg...!!! Religion is destroying teh world... Religion=war, religion=ignorance, religion=stupidity, religion=hatred... Gotta stop teh religionz!!!!
Despite the fact that he has a sick mentality and agenda, I have to agree with him. Is Ajahn Brahm subtly arguing for eternalism here? He uses Ian Stevenson's pseudoscientific reincarnation research to support Buddhist rebirth. Ajahn Brahm should simply say, "I don't know," when asked about rebirth, if he doesn't know. What knowledge of past lives does he actually have? And even if he had such knowledge, would this not contradict notself?
I laughed when the atheist guy said, "Hardly anything (passes to the next life)? Hardly anything? Bull****!" It seemed very Zen!
The best things in life aren't things.
