Topic 8 – Pantheistic Hinduism

-------------------------------------------------

 

P801. According to Pantheistic Hinduism, all of reality is God.

 

P802. However, everything is illusion. Including reality. Including God.

 

P803. This form is self-refuting, and so can be discarded.

 

P804. If everything is illusion, that means that nothing is real. Including Hinduism. Including reality. Including me. That means that I (my mind) does NOT exist.

 

P805. But Descartes shows that that last statement (I don’t exist) is self-refuting. I have to be exist because I cannot NOT exist and at the same time ask the question “do I exist?”

 

P806. So, this form of Hinduism is self-refuting. And so it is a kind of square-circle. And so it is false.

 

…………………………

C801. This form of Hinduism is self-refuting. And so it is false.

…………………………

 

P807. In addition, Pantheistic Hinduism teaches that the Law of Karma is absolute. (you reap what you sow, across multiple lifetimes of Reincarnation).

 

P808. However, Pantheistic Hinduism ALSO teaches the Law of Maya (everything is an illusion).

 

P809. However, if everything is illusion, then the Law of karma is also an illusion. And the Law of Maya is also an illusion. That means Karma is NOT real; and Maya is not real. This means that those laws are False.

 

P810. This is self-refuting. Therefore, this form of Hinduism is self-refuting. And so, it is false.

 

…………………………

C802. This form of Hinduism is self-refuting. And so, it is false.

…………………………
