yes, it would be an end of preferences and you can't have conflict without preferences
Fat is happy?
There would be no war.
Who would decide if a person was enlightened or just practicing what they "think" Buddhism is about.
NO .. since it believes and teaches that each person is in the state they are for reasons in a former life it excuses people from helping others -so it would be great for those with power and wealth and misery for those without
oh hang on - thats the present world
Nope it would be a giant pile of crap, because attaining enlightenment requires a long time of sitting around doing nothing. Nothing would get done and everyone would be sitting around waiting for donations from each other.
the world would be a jenny craig dream, as buddha has a really big belly...
i can see us now...fat bellied, bald-headed, peace-loving, robe-wearing, peace-niks...
utopia will never exist. else we'd be in a stale world where no free will exists.
it would be damn close ..even if christians followed just what JESUS SAID AND NOTHING ELSE IT WOULD BE CLOSE TOO
All human beings strive for an ideal(s). So ideally, the answer is yes.
actually the goal of buddhism is to reach "nirvana" which is commonly confused with heaven or paradise, but actuall means "extinction or disappearance" of the individual soul... So I guess we would all disappear as individuals and wouldnt know the difference any way... anyway dont take my word for it, look it up your self... Some helpful sites, truthnet.org, gotquestions.org... definitions, dictionary.com
NO. It implies each person is a result of their past life... so a baby born disabled and with AIDs.. it's their fault.
