    Care to provide us with some of the names of these historians? I wasn't aware that the First Century A.D. was considered "late Antquity", considering this was during the period of the Pax Romana, the high point of Roman power. "Late Antiquity" is usually dated from the 3rd century AD to the early Medieval period.


    Personally, I don't care what you think, I don't give a damn, because my goal wasn't to convert you, or even start a discussion about this.
    Well that's great, since I've kinda stopped caring about what you think too.

    This is not a rational discussion.
    Well I guess as an NF, that doesn't bother me as much as it would you.

    One difference between Budda and Jesus that has been brought to my attention recently is that: Buddism has the yin-yang/middle-ground-is-best.... while Christianity is more of a "'this' complements 'that'" concept which is similar but not exactly the same.

    Buddhism: In Buddhism, suffering is meaningless, except insofar as it it exhausts bad karma. The principle aim of Buddhism is to end pointless suffering.
    Christianity: The goal is realize that you are a guilty sinner, and to beg for forgiveness in the hopes of either avoiding afterlife pain/or gaining afterlife living at all
    Islam: The goal is complete submission to allah (to the point that you are willing to die)

    How in the world can anyone conclude they are the same religion?! Once you remove the differences, all you have left is a generic belief in some sort of deism. If you cant find yourself to believe in one of the big 4, then rather trying to hodgepodge more crap to satisfy this need of something bigger than ourselves, why dont you seek rational enlightenment? Spiritualism doesnt have to have anything to do with supernatural (or souls etc).
    Agnosticism could be the answer to all of our prayers!...

    Was Jesus a Buddhist?... I can't doubt it, I wasn't there!
    ... They say that knowledge is free, and to truly acquire wisdom always comes with a price... Well then,... That will be $10, please!

    Just thought I'd add that into the mix.

    I agree with OneWithSoul. Most religions are generally the same once you boil them down.

    It's like a mountain. If I approach it from the south, and you from the north, we're going to see different things, but it's still the same mountain. Once we get to the summit, we'll see the same thing, but not before then.


    This thread reminds me of a movie. If you haven't seen it, I'd recommend it.
    The Man from Earth

    Anyone seen it?

    No.

    Many religions have much in common, but that's not the same thing.

    Jesus actually learned from Buddha.

    "Man from Earth", anyone?

    I've seen it. Interesting movie, by the way...

    But I don't agree with the fellow atheist who has written this script.

    Of course you don't. Your lack of agreement is the entire reason you ever post anything. It makes it appear from this distant perspective that contrarianism is the only thing that gets you out of bed in the morning.

    "Contrarianism" is a deeply rooted tradition within French culture!

    (Does that mean I'm agreeing with you? How paradoxical!)
