    I don't know why you wouldn't.

    Confucianism has all those temples.  And you make sacrifices to a statue.  That's pretty religious...

    Some sects of Buddhism place considerably less focus on supernatural bullshit, and in fact you don't really have to believe in anything to practice Zen. Similarly, there were a lot of rationalist philosophers of the European Enlightenment who were sponsored by the Church, and their philosophical contributions have withstood the advance of secularism.

    While it's possible to parse the objective and rational social philosophy of Confucianism from the ancestor worship, I think it's still a rather crude form of historical revisionism to deny Confucianism's religious roots.

    Yeah, exactly, it's an ethical/moral philosophy built ON TOP of religion, and kind of falls apart in terms of its justifications without the underlying religion to support it.

    I blame Catholic missionaries for the confusion of Confucianism.

  • Silje Linnerud

    well, julie, your definition of religion is way too simple and narrow. I think there's no big difference between confucianism and other religions. No matter for whichever reason they were created, they'd been used as a tool to control people by the rulers.

    随便叫兽 wrote:

    And where did Kant get that idea?

    Like I said, and as you've pointed out, the Golden Rule exists in different forms in many different religions. But as useful as these crude pre-Kantian categorical imperatives might be, the social organizations are still religious because the way people express their adherence to such ideals is through rituals like sacrificial offerings to ancestors.

    Furthermore, if you really examine other religions, you find that some of their idiosyncratic and seemingly supernatural rules were at one time or another rational and scientific. Not eating pork? That's a smart move for people who live in deserts.

    Yeah. Confucianism is practical. There are practical elements of other religions if you bother to examine them in a historical context.

    one could contribute something new and interesting, as an example for those stuck on the hamster wheel.

    Why do niggers love watermelon?

    Julie - 晚明早清时候罗马派几个教父来到中国积累知识吧,孔子传到西方是通过他们的手来翻译的。罗马把这些翻译整理和分析之后呢。。。天主教还有个比较铁的规定,既是禁止“神像崇拜”,就是不能崇拜或信仰一个物质体或人物。有的宗教不是说什么圣山、一个什么石头、一个什么雕刻、树,动物之类代表上帝,不能碰它。。。天主教觉得这样不对,“上帝”是碰不到见不到的。

    中国么,当时有皇帝,天主教一直摸不准“皇帝”是不是被中国人考虑为凡人界的上帝代表物,而因此不知道崇拜皇帝该不该属于罪孽。这个争论接着一百多年。Dando连接讲是将这些的。

  • Silje Linnerud

    wow, Lao Lee, you really discovered the most effective way to kill a thread. hush... we are still having fun here. 

  • Father Of Boring

    @godfather - I respond where asked.  Ask me in PM, I'll answer in PM.  Ask me here, I'll answer here.  

    @Julie - it is important though, because they eventually judged it WAS a sin, which pissed off Kangxi, and he told the Catholics to fuck off back to Macao.

  • Father Of Boring

    Also, if you believe in Confucius, get your incense sticks out, because here he comes....

    In practicing the rules of propriety, a natural ease is to be prized. In the ways prescribed by the ancient kings, this is the excellent quality, and in things small and great we follow them.

  • Silje Linnerud

    Pete, you are a monkey full of jealousy, Dando brought so much joy for everyone of us in trolling threads. NO ARGUEMENT, NO FUN. 

  • Father Of Boring

    "Dandu zi'er" = "lone son", but is mostly just a phonetic translation of "Dando Z".  随便叫兽, suibian jiao shou, "call me/him a beast whenever/however you like", I have no idea about, though.  What is the story behind that?

    NO ARGUEMENT, NO FUN. 

    No he isn't a monkey; no he's not fun!  And arguments suck!

    I wonder when Danda & Co would log in on this site without thinking or talking about HP.
