Well, in the off chance that you want to greet me, here's a bit about myself.
I'm Buddhist
I'm fifteen (No, i'm not rebeling against main-stream religion)
I am a master Green belt (just below brown) at Red Dragon Karate
I am a Star scout, about to be Life
I like to assemble and paint figurines. It's tough, so let's see you He-men do it!
I might Want to be a gamne designer (not because it sounds cool, i know they get low pay.)
I might want to become a Buddhist monk. Don't worry, I plan on not bringing up Buddhism on any thread outside of the religion thread unless it is a foundation of a political opinion, such as abortion.
I collect swords. They're better than collecting old soda cans!
I'm a moderate kinda guy. I take conservative views on thing, and liberal views on things. As Chris Rock said, "Crime, I'm conservative. Prostitution, I'm liberal!"
so, that's it.

Wow, excellent intro. Welcome to Debate Politics!

It really is awesome when young adults are active and also interested in discussion of many of the topics that will affect them in the very near future.

Welcome Dear Boy!

You seem to be mature then a couple of 15 Year Olds we've had in the past. To me Buddhism is not a religion, instead it's a philosophy and a damned good one at that!

So you're more like a Shaolin Temple monk? Sweet

You being a buddhist at your age unless your parents had anything to do with that means that you have a very open mind. Thats awesome. Some of my musical heroes were buddhists actually. I'm not a buddhist cause I give in to desire all the time lmao. Anyways, wecome to the forums.

Don't you ever watch Kung Fu?

Welcome Ag

I'm a sleep in Sunday baptist

I once took a course in world religions and its very interesting to notice the very close similarities between buddhism, hinduism, confuscism, and daoism
infact the life stories of Buddha, Confuscious and Dao, are so similar that some now think that they were the same person.

Well, that's why it takes many lifes to become controling of your wants. Monks beg because it humbles them into enjoying what meager things they have, such as thier robes and shoes. after all, Buddha wan't Enlightened in a day!
