The Dallas Examined Life Philosophy Group Message Board › Meet-Up Follow-up
So yesterday we talked a lot about what Dr. Who, Eastern religions and the Bible say about time, death and eternity. Here are some quotes I found from Dr. Who and the Bible.
Anyone have quotes from Hindu, Buddhist, Jainist or other religious texts?? Quotes are more like "clips" than full-length films, so please drop me an email if you want to trade full length passages and books firstname.lastname@example.org. (I'm especially anxious to learn about Buddhist texts right now)
