Hello!

Often when talking to people that are "religious" they answer things like, if the destruction of the world happens then its the will of "God" and then we should also not do something against it but participate or they answer stuff like that we should be happy and confident in the face of the extinction of every living being, or i dont know what excuses they find. Therefor I want to ask if there are any Buddhists or Hindus, that are against the destruction of the world or do they all recommend that?

Hope to be able to talk in detail about this issue with a reasonable person.

Thanks!

Have a "nice" time!

There is no higher power like "God" in Buddhism, which means we take responsibility for what we do and the effect it has on the planet.

The first mindfulness training here gives a flavour of the Buddhist attitude: http://www.coiuk.org/mindfulness-trainings/

Do you mean by that, that you are against the extinction of the Earth, if so, do you think that it is important to find the cause of it.

I think most people would be against the extinction of the earth.

Can you one time in your life show some backbone and answer the simple questions if you are against the destruction of the world and if you think that it is important to find the cause?

You question seems to be trolling so I wouldn't expect much reply.  The earth is not in immediate danger of being destroyed.  The sun will not go nova unit  4 to 5 billion years and no object lager than Earth is in range. kylo ren is not real.   Nothing humans can do could destroy the Earth so no action or investigation is warranted.    All nuclear bombs could go off at once and the Earth would still be here, spinning around the sun.  Life as we know it would become extinct but the Earth will be here, long after humans.   So the question should be "Are there Buddhists that are against the  destruction of life?"   The answer to that is yes.  it is the most important rule of the Five Precepts, but the degree and interpretation of life, sentients, protection and survival can very from sect to individual.

If all life is destroyed by the jews and christians and if the athmosphere will go away because there are any trees anymore and the radiation will unhindered penetrate the Earth then the world will be destroyed.

Do you think it has priority to find the cause and to inform the people about the cause and to work against the cause?

Whenever something is important its trolling, mark this well.

You are working together with the christians and jews, thats great, and with the neuroscientists and psychiatry. But do you also work together with the 50% non-monotheist of humanity?
At this moment is Tanzania made extinct. One of the few countries with large non-mono-pedo population. The area that is humid 1/3 of the country, of the size of italy is at this moment made extinct by the monotheist multinational companies and the UN, it is turned after their words "in a massive production area", are you helping the population of Tanzania that is widely naturereligious? After they have wiped out everything for the monoculures there wont be any left, they will all be christians then, do you care? Or are you to busy in providing the pharamaindustry and inquisition good tips, and being confident and happy with the situation.

no, trolling is asking questions with sole purpose to argument. Your anger and hate reduces the value of your words and  diminishes what could be a worthy cause.  trolling and insulting people with unsourced statistic only seem to work for Trump and Brexit at the moment. You may need more finesse to influence your cause.

Word trolling quite for sure introduced by cia propaganda agents and it means a person that is posting in a forum opinions that are not conform to the opinions of the owners of the forum. Its used in order to prohibit a communication and to be able to without the need to tell reasons censor and remove people.

Hi. As quite a new poster here, could I ask if we should reply to questions like this? It seems a bit strange on a Buddhist site to ask questions to do with the will of God. I used to be puzzled about question like, 'Is there or isn't there a God?' until I discovered the Buddhist phrase, 'There is neither a God nor not a God'. Never looked at 'Is it yes or is it no?' kind of questions again in the same way. Back to my question. Is it best to ignore these posts?
“You do not need to leave your room. Remain sitting at your table and listen. Do not even listen, simply wait, be quiet, still and solitary. The world will freely offer itself to you to be unmasked, it has no choice, it will roll in ecstasy at your feet.” Franz Kafka
