My Experience with Buddhism Pt 1 (Agnosticism)

David’s response to my last post has set an alarm bell tinklimg:

DAVID: I note dhw's personal comments, noting some new facts I hadn't known.

dhw: The personal comments were meant to shed light on what I thought were some of Matt’s own preoccupations: the negative or “nihilistic” side of Buddhism, with its emphasis on repeated suffering and the nebulousness both of rebirth and of the final state when Enlightenment has been achieved, the transience of joy, and the true nature of the “self”. This latest post delves deeper into the ramifications of Matt’s sufferings, and how he has dealt with them. Enlightening in itself, but if my personal comments were irrelevant, then I’m sorry and of course they should be ignored.

Not ignored, but helpful in relating to each other.
