I was embarrassed for Doug Pagitt when he was asked to explain the afterlife or as he likes to call it, “the forevermore.” I am not sure why he acted as though he didn’t know what Todd Friel was talking about when Friel asked, “does a good Buddhist go to heaven?”
This a great example of trying to pin down jello. He acted as though Friel was loopy by demonstrating a sound systematic theological position on heaven and hell.
Pagitt didn’t know what he was talking about, and is quite frankly, a heretic. That’s my take why don’t you listen and let me know what you think.
