Tonight I am exploring that some of the great spiritual thinkers were not trying to make a religion, they were simply pondering the very important question of how to live a worthwhile life...
We do not need extrinsic motivation of a heaven and hell, or a soul's journey ( karma). We can simply reflect on what it is that gives us greatest peace, joy and purpose, and act on that.
What do you think fellow Agnostics?
I think this may be true. I would like it if it were. The problem is establishing the historical reality of their lives and teachings. I think the sunahs (sp?) and hadiths (sp?) may be accurate, but I've seen even the existence of Jesus debated. Other than Buddha being a Hindu reformer I'm not sure how accurate any of the rest of it is.
