Hello

Postby edearl » Fri Sep 23, 2011 10:34 pm

Neophyte--ignorant of Buddhist literature, terms, and practices, but eager to learn.


Married since 1984, two children and four grandchildren.

Retired

Homebound--this forum is my Buddhist community.

Reared fundamentalist Christian, rejected religion about age 15 as not real, and became agnostic tending toward atheism.

BS Electrical Engineering

Worked as a computer programmer for many years.


Just read, "Introduction: Buddhism and Science—Breaking Down the Barriers," by B. Alan Wallace and experienced epiphanies.
HHDL: "My confidence in venturing into science lies in my basic belief that as in science so in Buddhism, understanding the nature of reality is pursued by means of critical investigation: if scientific analysis were conclusively to demonstrate certain claims in Buddhism to be false, then we must accept the findings of science and abandon those claims."

Welcome to Dharma Wheel.

Maitri,
Retro. :)
Live in concord, with mutual appreciation, without disputing, blending like milk and water, viewing each other with kindly eyes.
