I'm not sure if this post is because of some of my recent postings, but when
I talk about Buddhism and Christianity my intention is not to blend the two
together.  As you know I don't consider myself a Buddhist or a Christian,
and I'm not trying to mix the two.  The intent of my post is to show some of
the similarities between the two, especially those that I believe relate to
zen, which as you also know I don't consider to be a exclusive to Buddhism
or a sub-set of Buddhism.  I'd bring up similarities with other religions
(Judaism, Islam, Hinduism, etc...) but I don't know much about them.  The
only two religions I've had experience in is Christianity and Buddhism.

For what it's worth...Bill!
