Again, you missed the point. 9/11 was the first attack by radical Muslim on American soil--unless of course you're claiming Muslims were attacking American Indians around the time of Christ.

However, I am, unconvinced by your > stellar logic and facts. Is Islam a bad religion? Not an easy answer (is there a *good* religion?) Swami Lakshman Joo felt that at one time Islam fulfilled an evolutionary need, but now it's time had passed. I think on the evolutionary scheme of things *any religion* that worships a god or gods will tend to have problems (and of course there are exceptions to every rule). For some reason, the god Allah, when worshipped by large groups of people tends to destabilize the collective consciousness of that nation. But one could say many kali-yuga religions are suspect. > > >> You'll find this in many places. >> > > Everywhere I bet. > > >> What the kalachakra >> prophecies are pointing to is that on a global scale what might be >> most worrysome is radical islam. >> > > Funny, I never heard HHDL say that.

"conducter" of KC believes > all muslims are evil and Islam is a bad evil religion? And you won't in an introductory generation stage initiation, would you? The corpus of kalachakra literature in both Buddhism (and the pre-Buddhist Hindu kalachakra) is vast. Unless you were hanging around for a long time in retreat, I doubt most would hear these prophecies. And not everyone will interpret them the same way. > > >> This makes sense: even though, for >> example, it was the radical minority that was behind the English tube >> bombings--the majority of Islamic brits supported their actions!

The PC party line is "these terrorist acts are only caused by a few", the lunatic fringe of radical Islam if you will--and that is true. However it's something else when the majority of the believers--the collective consciousness of a religion--supports such actions. Another example might be the great celebrations in Saudi Arabia after 9/11 which was totally blacked out in the American media. I would feel just as worried if after the Oklahoma City bombing, millions of fundamentalist Christians supported the actions of Mr. McVeigh or started celebrating in the streets. > > > >>> I am beginnnng to worry about (radical) >>> bigoted neo-buddhists. >>> >> >> Well if they're pumping sarin gas into your subway, then I'd worry. >> Rather than that worrying I'd recommend you visit the first great >> university (Nalanda) and other sites that were destroyed in the >> past-- >> or the two million that disappeared in "east Pakistan" (Bangladesh). >> You probably remember the concert but never knew of the genocide. >> > > ok dokie.
