Forgive me for my misconception, I beg.  So are you a Taoist then?  I ask not out of spite or malice, but to better tailor my arguments for the reader. I'll stop using the bible to such devastating effect and instead will use whatever the hell reincarnation voodoo book Taoists read.

Sounds to me the Taoist position is that the parents are just the vehicle that the progeny/children/souls use to begin their life.  They are merely arrows(babies), shot from a bow(parents.)  It sort of implies it's impossible to know how a kid will end up, after all, the parents can only shoot the arrow straight and hope the kid, that's not really their kid, turns out ok or something.  Am I getting it?

So are you a Taoist or a bad Christian?  Maybe neither?


It's true, I assume most GOP/Conservatives, especially on LNF, are Christians.  Fair assumption you must admit.
so would you also asume most Democrats / Liberals are atheists?

Fair question.

You're new?

Me too!


I think there was a poster with a similar name... "Limey", with the last two letters in a different font.

Not me.


Is there some sort of annual award for the best or maybe tallest new poster?


What a relief!  I'm not the only noob!

Oh I think they have lots of awards here, and even medals! I was awarded this Bronze Swimming Certificate medal thing just for signing up and I only dogpaddle! It was inscribed "Capt. O..." I can only make out the letter O, the rest was scratched off, probably said Capt. Otter or something because he was obviously good at swimming, maybe the swim team captain?

Oh well, mine now!

There's even a smilie of a guy doing the sidestroke and backstroke wearing flippers.  Think it's a swimmers forum probably.

Taoism, to my knowledge, is not concerned with doctrines of reincarnation and such.

Besides, Kalil Gibran was not a Taoist, he was, at least nominally, a Muslim.

Surely you have read the Tao Te Ching?  Its not long...you should read it.


Could you tweet a précis?

No, they're also mostly Christian, but the cool chill kind.  Universalist Unitarians come to mind as a perhaps extreme example.

Really its very short.

East Asians are more visual than auditory in nature.  Thus, as you may be at least somewhat aware of, they write a lot less than white peoples.

Anyways, the Tao Te Ching basically asserts that there is a God ("The Tao that can be named") a Godhead ("The Tao that cannot be named"), it then asserts that the Tao is the origin of our cosmos ("the Tao is mother of 10,000 things) and that we must organize our lives in accordance with the Tao.

It is an esoteric book, not exoteric, thus not written for the "common man."  It, for instance, specifically gives advice on how the "sage" can "rear his people."

Like most religious texts, (and unlike how atheists characterize them) most of it is not concerned with origins but with how to order ones life.  In the Tao Te Ching the guidance to the sage on how he should live is presented in short zen-like sayings.

You're projecting your view of a god onto the Taoist view of eternity.  You've made a mistake.
