  3. The concept of God in Hinduism varies in its diverse traditions. Hinduism spans a wide range of beliefs such as henotheism, monotheism, polytheism, panentheism, pantheism, pandeism, monism, atheism and nontheism. Forms of theism find mention in the Bhagavad Gita. Emotional or loving devotion (bhakti) to a primary god such as avatars of Vishnu (Krishna for example), Shiva and Devi emerged in the early medieval period, and is now known as Bhakti movement. Other Hindus consider atman within every living being to be same as Vishnu or Shiva or Devi, or alternatively identical to the eternal metaphysical Absolute called (Brahman) in Hinduism. Such a philosophical system of Advaita or non-dualism as it developed in the Vedanta school of Hindu philosophy, especially as set out in the Upanishads and popularised by Adi Shankara in the 9th century has been influential on Hinduism. The Dvaita tradition founded by 13th/14th-century Madhvacharya is based on a concept similar to God in other major world religions.His writings led some early colonial-era Indologists such as George Abraham Grierson to suggest Madhvacharya was influenced by Christianity,but later scholarship has rejected this theory Madhva's historical influence in Hinduism, state Kulandran and Kraemer, has been salutary, but not extensive.

  5. I've got Muck Arctic Outpost mid.& am very happy with them. All day with just a light sock unless it's REALLY cold. Then just a heavier sock. The Arctic Commuter looks like a comfortable boot.

  7. The US has been socialist in part for the last 85 years. FDR put it in motion with the New Deal. It has been expanding ever since.
  8. No it isn't. VZ is a totalitarian oligarchy. Bernie & AOC envision something on the order of "Nordic" socialism.
  9. Only an idiot would equate US style socialism with Venezuela.
  10. ELO

    Showtime has an excellent concert by ELO; "Jeff Lynne's ELO". I guess he can't use the name.
  11. Sure your god is special; not like the thousands of gods before him. Sure... Whatever gets you thru the night. I will be dead someday. I'm not special & have no need to delude myself into thinking otherwise.
  12. That's your comment immediately after Brian's question. The "socialist part is irrelevant to my point & you know it. Work on your posting skills so as not to be misunderstood.
