How do they do that?

Each religion claims that there is a particular truth for which there is no generalization or for which the generalization of the particular is not the truth.

Let me be the first to welcome you back, Greensmile. I hope your vacation was enjoyable.

As for your comment, I agree completely, which is part of the reason why I don't consider Zen a "religion." The fundamental state of a Zen practioner is "not knowing." Zen neither provides the answers nor the questions - it just allows the practioners to open their minds to all possibilities. "Only don't know" as Korean Master Seung Sahn says.

Thanks. Except for being treated like cattle by AirWest, the vacation was as near constant delight as graduation/family reunion gets....and it prompted the launching of not one but two blogs.

An excellent thing to hear, particularly from you, Shokai. I wasn't sure if I would rile up anyone with such a broad brush comment. I am of the same perception, limited though my exposure has been, of Zen and its relation to the category "religion".
I considered rephrasing the remark as a definition of the term relgion but enough of that, its working ok.
