Re: “The Dalai Lama is a Feminist

"They do not believe in an entity that is both absolute and personal. They hold to a vague, mystical higher power."

i'm sorry, but your god is just as much a vague, mystical higher power as the buddhist notion of the oneness of all being. how can we interpret anything different from an entity whose name cannot be spoken and likeness cannot be experienced.

also, the burden of proof falls on those who make a claim, not dissenters to that claim. simply because the founders of the united states believed in "one true god" (which is dubious, at best) does not make them correct or the basis for perpetuation of that belief in the present day. people once believed that the earth was flat, and that the sun was pulled across the sky by a chariot. historicity does not give any factual weight to a claim.
