No. 9. . . . . . No. 9. . . . . No. 9. . . . . . . . . . No. 9. . . . . . . .

Seriously though, Here's another in the continuing series of "Helpful Tips For Religious Fanatics".

I suppose one would call this a variation on the good ole "appeal to authority" fallacy.

Now, Most of you will have a copy of the Torah, Bible, Quran or Kama Sutra (or whatever the Indian religion book is called) propping open a door somewhere in the house.

Whenever someone challenges you on the validity of any point relating to your chosen faith, Just say, "it is written that. . . . . . . . . . ". Now, Nobody could possibly argue with something that is written in a book that's still on the top-sellers list and, And. . . . It's actually been on TV too.

So, Stick to your guns and quote, Quote, Quote. And don't worry about your colleagues checking out the painting of the ceiling in the photocopier room every time you walk past. It's just a coincidence.

You need to read up a little on Hinduism, Willows. There are many books that are considered "sacred" in Hinduism spread across millennia. The more recent you get in time, The more the books talk about being able to know specific "Gods" with specific names, Including the Hindu "Trinity, " and away from only being able to know who the unnamable Supreme Being is through are deepest self and conscience, Called "atman. "

OK, Point taken.
And I do agree that there is a lot more focus on self-awareness than the "Big Two" books which are more about self-fulfillment.
