Yeah and I started one...although I did mean it to be ironic.. :?

But in the main I do question whether they aid debate or hinder it by their prescriptive nature.

So, let me see, about 50% of the forum have said that they believe in rebirth but only 25% have said that rebirth matters greatly to their practice. Interesting :thinking:
