This claim simply confuses the original teacher with the derived centuries of dogma which have been interpreted. In John 1:39 "Come and See", we find the exact same injunction, or if you like suggested approach. All esoteric traditions which are not corrupted insist upon individual testing.

Yes, it would be a misunderstanding, had I actually said that Skeptical Buddhism is unique in asking one to test every element of dharma.

Reply Fontoflife says: February 14, 2014 at 8:51 pm Great video Star. I like it. Not too sure about "Skepticism" these days, but as a Taoist I can definitely go along with Skeptical Buddhism's try-things-out attitude towards life. Very similar to my own approach about "seeing things for yourself." and what I gather of Casey Kochmer's Personal Tao. Anyway, loved your video here. Thanks for sharing it. Best!
