Re: India's Muslims

Beef is very unhealthy for human consumption.

And it's even much more unhealthy for the cow or bull; they get killed.

Re: India's Muslims

Is there anything about beef that makes it more nutritious than other meats? No, in fact it is very bad for you, nutritionally. It has the highest saturated fats of any meat and one of the highest of any food overall. https://www.myfooddata.com/articles/foods-highest-in-saturated-fat.php It can cau...

Re: India's Muslims

Apparently there is some beef allowed in India, primarily from water buffalo. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cattle_slaughter_in_India But for the most part, it is very limited supply. There are other sources of meat besides beef. In terms of anemia, there are plenty of vegetarian foods that provide ...

Re: The Jains were prepared ...

In summary, Jainism, a 3,000 year old religion was well ahead of it's time, making the following principles or discoveries. 1. Wearing masks is good for preventing death to small living things and protecting oneself from bacteria and viruses. 2. Vegetarian diets required, before it was cool or found...

Re: The Jains were prepared ...

Jainism, a 3,000 year old religion, also had a female founder at one time, according to their texts. Malinatha was a previous Tirthankara (similar to Samma-Sam-Buddha, re-discoverer of the Dharma), making it female egalitarian, before it was cool or "woke." https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/M%C4%81ll%C4...

Re: The Jains were prepared ...

The Jains were also the first to discuss the existence of microorganisms. The possible existence of microorganisms was discussed for many centuries before their discovery in the 17th century. By the fifth century BC, the Jains of present-day India postulated the existence of tiny organisms called ni...

If there were 3 billion Jains, or even 300 million, rather than just 3 million of them the world would be that much more peaceful.

Re: what is Jainism?

I have interacted with Hindus, Buddhists, Sikhs and Jains and from my personal observation, find the Jains the sweetest. Their vibes are always harmless and pleasant. It perhaps may have something to do with the teachings of nonviolence in Jainism. :smile: Yeah, I hear that a lot from people who ha...

Top 100 most influential philosophers of all time

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F5YnoYrCs2I Similar to the other one, but this list is just philosophers. Buddha is #6??! The other video was for "people" in general and this one is specifically for philosophers and it put Buddha at #6 here and #4 at the other. Makes no sense, crazy! And I don't thi...

Re: Top 100 most influential people of all time

Also, man-oh-man I wish they would stop depicting Mahavira and true-Jains as meditating or walking around naked. Mahavira never did such things. It is a false attitude perpetuated by people in the fallen Digambara parts of modern Jainism, because they do not know how to renounce the world and mater...

Re: Top 100 most influential people of all time

I would probably have put Jesus as #1 since Christianity is the largest religion and is the most widespread. Islam is mostly the Middle East and Africa, whereas there is hardly any country in the world that doesn't have at least some Christians. I'd put Charles Darwin as #2 since it was very revolut...
