A Mormon was witnessing to a Buddhist in a bar

Recommended Posts

"What will happen when I die if I don't convert?" asked the Buddhist.

"Your soul will be annihilated!" warned the Mormon. "You will cease to exist!"

"Phew," said the Buddhist. "Thank God!"

I can't tell if the Buddhist hates Soul and wants him annihilated, or pities Soul and wants him annihilated. But do we have any Buddhists on this forum?

Perhaps the two things are one and the same?

Well, I guess there's a high chance we have a few at least...

The original idea of Buddhism was that, by achievement enlightenment and escaping the cycle of reincarnation, you would finally stop existing and therefore stop suffering as well. I don't know if that's the common view nowadays but it's at least the more compelling and ancient one.

I believe Johan was referring to the Serenes user known as Soul.  You know, the guy that makes all those weirdly personal topics.
