among some of my fellow professors, i circulated a few copies of an article about that.

what amazes me is how <!--coloro:#FFFFCC--><span style="color:#FFFFCC"><!--/coloro-->transparent<!--colorc--></span><!--/colorc--> that new "law" is. as if it is to be taken seriously by anyone with more than one neuron in their skull?!!

<!--quoteo--><div class='quotetop'>QUOTE</div><div class='quotemain'><!--quotec-->I don't believe in reincarnation, but I have a much bigger problem with a government trying to 'control' reincarnation.<!--QuoteEnd--></div><!--QuoteEEnd-->

i'm not necessarily sold on reincarnation either, elko. however, reincarnation makes more sense than ascending into some glorious gold & pearl city in the heavens where i can enjoy ever-lasting peace and love with all "believers"---while everyone else burns for eternity in hellfire, damnation, and reruns of reality tv shows.
interestingly, i recently read where approximately 20% of americans believe in reincarnation. that number really surprised me. (the survey was from a reputable company)

His HolinessImage the Dalai Lama is too cool to be believed. during one of the Q & A sessions after a recent talk, a young american told him about her joy of converting from Christianity to Buddhism. he told her she should have stayed with her Christian upbringing!!....something about all major religions teaching the same lessons.

if you haven't seen "Seven Years In Tibet" i strongly recommend it. besides the insane eye-candy of a young Brad Pitt, the movie is fact-based and shows painfully well how China invaded Tibet, and what happend to the Dalai Lama. some amazing acting in the movie, really quite amazing.



if i may try to take this topic one step further down the road:
China is to host the olympics soon.
-take a look at the numbers on their human trafficking problem.
-take a look at how their pollution impacts billions of people.
-take a look at this whole problem with Tibet.
-is there ANY source that will accurately reflect the number of state executions?
-last week a young couple was recently fined ~$660 because they actually kissed in public!! *gasp*
there is a growing contingency of people who are protesting China hosting olympic games.

ideologically, i say: go for it.
pragmatically, you may as well give me a handfull of smoke---no way it's going to happen.
(and honestly, if China's sins should prevent them from hosting the games, what about the USA?...i mean... :ph34r:

thoughts?

The world lost one of its greatest voices this morning. Never mind the opera purists' claims that he "sold out" in his latter years.

British TV cook Gordon Ramsey has had a remarkable accident at "work". The man burnt his right testicle on the gas while cooking. He was wearing nothing under his pants. The cook declared in an earlier interview that he often cooks naked and that naked cooking is very common in the restaurants' kitchens across the globe.

Very common in restaurant kitchens? :huh: :blink: That is just a gross thought! Just try to eat while the cook's genitals have been hanging above your pizza...

According to journalists in Washington, Bush has set his mind on a war versus Iran and is already preparing the war by choosing targets and more. The excuse would not be Iran's nucleair program but the fact they'd be disturbing the Iraqi peace process.

If this is true, the world is awaiting more days of anxiety and needless bloodspilling. Maybe Borat was right in calling Dubya a "warlord" :ph34r: Let's hope this rumour is untrue. French politicians did already warn there may be a war versus Iran so the US does not seem to be on their own in this case.
