Matthieu Ricard's 'Advocacy For Altruism' Book Champions Unselfishness (Interview)

“Thank God Christ is soon to return and set up His everlasting Kingdom on the earth....each preceding generation of humans still believe after countless centuries that they will be able to change things in our present fallen state...From the start the Bible is clear about who we are ...Satan will be bound and man will begin to function in the power of the Living God...More help books in mans reasoning will be cast off and all flesh will learn the ways of the Lord and His hidden plan of the ages for all of us ...Ame and Amen”

“So you are saying about what Ricard said you would say. We've been like this so long we must go on being this way. We can't change ourselves we're just selfish and evil ? God made us this way?
I think you just invent god in your own image and imagine that he wants you to go on killing each other and grabbing bread from the hands of starving children because that doesn't call for any change from anyone. Change is scary”

“I would suggest this book to your "God Christ" next time you talk to it. Your bible and god are awful and filled with burning people's flesh for not believing your gods. They are very selfish indeed. You and they could use an education.”

“If you know your Bible and the Quran and their books ...Misinformation historically cause the greatest separation in the two faiths. ..Each time a Muslim mentions the name of Jesus they should say """"" piece be upon Him """" respectfully....with the same breath Muslims are taught that the works of Jesus are false and He is a false prophet because he did not fulfill His own predictions in the Gospels ...that He would die on a cross for the sins of this world and would rise again from the tomb into eternal life ...To bless and curse a prophet in the same breath is absolutely impossible ...This is done in a vain attempt to destroy the central figure of God's son in the Christian faith ...It has not worked in the last 1400 years nor will it work in the future ...Why would He be returning in these last days if He did not do all that the Father had called Him to do when He was among us ?????”

“If a human father treated his children like God treats his childen; (torturing, murder) then all human fathers would end up in jail after their first child. Torturing, murdering, and any act meant to degrade the victim are the true human conditions that are being disguised as divine qualities.”

“Do you really think "god" has a plan? If so, what is his plan? Correct me if I'm wrong, but god seems to just fumble along with no clear vision of the future. If "he" doesn't like the way things turn out, "he" throws a fit in the form of a flood, a stellar incineration of cities, genocide, etc...is that impetuous and spiteful child your god?”

CBLoughry on Jul 27, 2013 at 18:27:45

“Interesting.

In the Job story, God sanctions the slaughter of a man's family, the destruction of his property, and the ruin of his health, all to win a bet with the devil. Trough it all the man remains absolutely faithful. Yet when this poor man reminds God of his faith and asserts that he did not deserve to be so cruelly treated, God throws a divine hissy fit.

That story, which you quote above, would seem to call God's moral character rather sharply into question.”

jonathan 12 on Apr 15, 2013 at 22:28:28

“Yes you do think you have the right to disagree with the gay life.  Lots of posts on this wall so won't ask you to go find them, but I have said to many in my comments, that we, at least I and most of my gay and straight friends don't think anyone should be forced to accept our life style. 

I think everyone has a right to their opinion as do I, and you are allowed to believe mine is wrong as well.  I am arguing for my beliefs, religious or secular, regarding gay marriage be protected by the government so extremists on your side cannot not continue to deny us rights, and protection under the law.

 And while vocal extremist people on my side often lower themselves to the same level as vocal extremesit opponents on your side, not all of us do.  And honestly I can not blame many of the ones on my side for wanting to strike back as they have been attacked verbally, or on protests lines with signs of hatred for a long time.  I don't condone it necessarily but I understand how they can get bitter, and yes sometimes they over do it and attack people who are just expressing their opinion.  A reasonable person must take this with a grain of salt I believe.

We always notice the bad ones more than the good ones, that is truly human nature.”

“What I know about the bible is not obvious to you, because I have not shared that with you. I spend at least 20 hours a week reading the bible, but the difference between me and people like you is that I don't think my beliefs should be shoved down people's throats at random, nor do I think my morality should be your morality. Nor do I believe I have any biblical authority. I do think that many bible believers are fools, and are asinine, because 1. they are cherry pickers, taking verses out of context to support whatever whim they want to support. and 2. they have no right to use their beliefs to change laws in this country. Your sentences are not exactly composed properly so I don't know exactly what you are saying. I have told you exactly what I am saying, twice now. God guides my life each minute, but I don't impose that on everybody else in order to puff myself up like a peacock and put everybody else down.”

Cynthia Brown Christ on Apr 15, 2013 at 20:17:57

“I am not displeased with you that you follow it. I am displeased that you want to impose your beliefs on non-believers.

I follow Christs laws myself. But what I refuse to do, is put my personal beliefs onto the backs of others.

I just do not think that personal religious beliefs, or personal biblical interpretations have a place in determining what should and should not be the rights of people in the United States.

People who say the bible has not changed over time are liars and fools. We give bible literalists facts all the time and they turn away from the truth.

The bible has been used as a weapon to discriminate against women, Jews, blacks, muslims, Catholics and so many more groups of people, since our country was founded. I have never read the bible that way. I KNOW Jesus would not read it that way either!

Most Christians do not care about that. Many conservative Christians don't care about any viewpoints except their own, They do not seem to even be able to think of anyting except their own self interests, and I think that is ugly and Christ-less.

Christian beliefs and their discriminatory practices have no place in making laws in this country, because the only thing that Christian beliefs do is put their views over those of other groups of people. And that is wrong!”
