Making sense as a valid communication choice?

Yes, very important.

Not making sense is not communication, it is rambling.

If you just want to talk to yourself, why are you doing it here?  If you want to talk to us, why aren't you making sense?

yes actually thought we posted this already but here it is:

confucius is the evil spirit in popular unorganized animistic practice, thought to represent false government, and varying degrees of fascism, dysfunction, artificial conflict, rampant delusion, reccurence of tramautic past, and most of all slavery or extreme injustice, brainwashing, unnattractiveness and infertility, confucius and confucian philosophy

it comes from within you and not even your family but you specifically, its between you and the universe, moreso the universe is your family and guide than your genetic family or those who look like you

of course nothing is completely black and white, but the more the universe begins to resemble you in the sense of a follower, the more you have fallen, the more you have lost, but it can be returned, for the entire universe to follow you is death but there is life to death and a life after death, everything is infinite, there is always an endless amount to gain or to lose, and boundless peace coming from neutrality, and ascending and ascending ever complexifying dualities, true flight comes from finding the place where duality is immediately made whole

Um... I have no idea what you're going on about.
Two questions.


1. Where are you getting this from? Confucius is not considered an evil spirit. His ideas are somewhat androcentric, but he isn't an evil spirit. He is still a widely respected sage in East Asia, being venerated in both China, Japan, Korea, and Vietnam (he's even a sage of the Vietnamese New Religious Movement Cao Dai). It also seems rather disrespectful to Confucius' two million ancestors to say something without basis.

2. What does "tao" have to do with Confucianism, besides both of them are concepts that they are both Chinese-born and Chinese language concepts - one from the teachings of Confucius, and one from the teachings of Lao Zi.



Forgive me, but I really don't follow. :confused:

*shrug* never heard anything like Rainbow's statement before. My guess is he/she/they believe it. IDK if anyone else does.

I wouldn't imagine so in that case.
