    That explains a lot. Do both of you wear bike shorts when not cycling?

    Why not just admit you don't have one? 'Cause if you're pretending (and it seems you are), you're insulting all the people who actually spend years of their lives studying for their doctorates. It's academic bullshido, seriously.

    Anyway, it's not like you need one - your arguments should be compelling on merit, not on authority.

    I'd just like it known I had never heard of 4chan before 3am this morning.

    And I do not wear bike shorts.

    I don't even wear shorts.

    I think we have another "Bullshido by ref stoppage" on our hands, at least.

    Yes. This **** leads to falsifying your credentials.

    Once again, persistence, knowledge, and logic prevail.

I had a good idea you would say this and so I posed the second question to take out that idea. I even dropped in a specific eastern mystic philosophy with only 81 verses to its core text (the first and most familar place that would spring to mind to anyone who knew anything about the subject) into the question. Now you say:



    Zen and Taoism cross-pollinated ideas so you can't have seriously studied zen without being aware of taoism and its one principal thinker. Zen and Taoism co-exist in the same areas of china, so in your uh, travels, you couldn't have missed it. You could have at least named Lao Tze as the eastern half of the pair of philosophers whose both made two word statements that have exactly the same meaning- he is practically the only possibility anyhow in the context of the question. Taoism also happens to pre-date zen by a hell of a lot and is the logical begining for any real learning about chinese philosophy, which is the greatest influence in all oriental eastern thought.

    .
    ****, I never studied philosphy and even I have a pretty good idea of who was the principal thinker behind taoism.
    I think I picked that up back in grade school.

    Any academic would not use the word Oriental.
