Not all forms of Buddhism denny the existence of Gods, heavens, hells, re-incarnation, or other supernatural experiences. Atheist Buddhism emphasizes the parts of Siddhartha Gautama's teaching that emphasized focusing on compassion and effectiveness in this world for this world. Further, for the Atheist Buddhist, unlike many Atheist Westerners, the highest quality of life, or enlightenment, comes not from glorifying the self but by doing things that allow us to transcend ourselves to where we realize the self is an illusion and the barrier between "I" and "reality" disappears. When you are truly in the moment, in that "just do it" mindset, we do not know or care about the past or future, but just "are we doing the compassionate and effective thing right now?"
Not every Buddhist practices an atheist buddhism. Some believe in re-incarnation and some believe in a heaven/hell structure.
Third incarnation of the Nothing Nice to Say boards, after the untimely demise of omglikewhoa. Currently in an awesome stage, though n00bs are lacking.
We're off to see the wizard, the wonderful wizard of...Project Decoy...
1. In calculus, the slope of a function at a point. It is found by taking the limit of (f(x + h) - f(x)) / ((x + h) - x) where h (also seen as delta x) approaches 0.
Notations for a derivative include dy/dx and f'(x) (f prime of x)
2. The mathematical incarnation of Satan Himself
f(x) = 3x^3 - 4x^2 + 2x -6 //function
f'(x) = 9x^2 - 8x + 2 //first derivative
f''(x) = 18x - 8 //second derivative
f'''(x) = 18 //third derivative
2. Teacher: Today, we're going to do derivatives
Math book, as ceiling clouds over and turns red: MAY THE DEMONIC ARMIES OF HELL MARCH ACROSS YOUR MORTAL PLANE, CREATION CHAOS AND DESTRUCTION AND DRINKING THE BLOOD OF THE INNOCENT AND-
Math teacher: Change of plans! We're going to rock out to Zeppelin and have a LAN party on the school's sweet new laptops for the next hour!
A re-incarnation of the original YTMND forums. The YTMND forums were full of odd, racist, and utterly hilarious content. It may seem that they are hateful, but they are really just kidding around. The X-ytmnd forums are where "SERIOUS INTERNET" business will not be found and instead forever be the forums where anything goes.
To sum it all up: X-ytmnd is the cornerstone of comedy and sillyness on the internet today.
X-ytmnd= Best Forums Ever
The re-incarnation of DJ Jake.
DJ Jake is Essix now.
A heretical sect dating back to Apostolic times. Their name is derived from dokesis, "appearance" or "semblance", because they taught that Christ only "appeared" or "seemed to be a man, to have been born, to have lived and suffered. Some denied the reality of Christ's human nature altogether, some only the reality of His human body or of His birth or death. The word Docetae which is best rendered by "Illusionists", first occurs in a letter of Serapion, Bishop of Antioch (190-203) to the Church at Rhossos, where troubles had arisen about the public reading of the apocryphal Gospel of Peter. Serapion at first unsuspectingly allowed but soon after forbade, this, saying that he had borrowed a copy from the sect who used it, "whom we call Docetae". He suspected a connection with Marcionism and found in this Gospel "some additions to the right teaching of the Saviour". A fragment of apocryphon was discovered in 1886 and contained three passages which savoured strongly of Illusionism. The name further occurs in Clement of Alexandria (d. 216), Strom., III, xiii, VII, xvii, where these sectaries are mentioned together with the Haematites as instances of heretics being named after their own special error. The heresy itself, however, is much older, as it is combated in the New Testament. Clement mentions a certain Julius Cassianus as ho tes dokeseos exarchon, "the founder of Illusionism". This name is known also to St. Jerome and Theodoret; and Cassianus is said to be a disciple of V...more...
|7.||Trekkie and/or Trekker|
A fan of Star Trek (any incarnation) who has COMPLETELY MISSED THE POINT OF THE SHOW!
Instead focusing on the little nicpicky details, rather than the bigger issue of what unites people of different cultures/ethnicities etc.
Those guys are two busy arguing whether they're Trekkie and/or Trekker to realize they haven't been paying attenttion.
