Regarding Zen Buddhist Frank Herbert

  • http://www.adherents.com/people/ph/Frank_Herbert.html

    In Islamic eschatology, Jesus peace be upon him is seen as a future King which accords with Jewish expectations of a unitarian King Messiah. Buddhism has ascetic ideals like Catholicism but Catholicism is focused on afterlife and Buddhism is about nirvana here. In Islam, we have both. Sufi mysticism ensures peace and ecstasy here, while ensuring salvation in the Hereafter, but like Jewish theology, it does not ignore ethical politics.

     

    Being a Pakistani Muslim, Buddhism influences our vocabulary through Hinduism. The Urdu word dheyan is derived from Zen Buddhism.

    Modern militant atheists hate mythology but why shouldn’t they hate science fiction with the same passion if supposed mythology has no edifying value.
