Is Buddhism scientific?

Pittsburgh Buddhist Center Staff asked 9 years ago

Dear Bhante, You are doing a great service to the people of Pittsburgh and surronding areas and also online inquisitive minds. These questions are asked with great humility. Q1: Is Buddhism scientific? Q2: Can the essence of Buddhism be taught without appealing to faith and belief in rebirth etc … Q3: If a person kills an animal to feed his hunger, can the person be a Buddhist? Q4: Should a monk not aspire to attain enlightenment as the main purpose of the human existence? Q5: If a monk happens to break seela what recourse is there to restablish seela? Neduk wethwa! Neerogi wethwa! Suwapath wethwa!
