Manuel G. Daugherty Razetto

Dr Hildebrand's exuberant dissertation on the obvious confrontation of evil and the supernatural tilts more to human suffering than to the extraordinary gifts one receives from being on the side of our Faith.
Evil is ever present in our world today and saints must be hiding quite well since their presence is rare, very rare.
A blunder is conspicuous where she introduces the first example of a possible solution to her main question. She gives Buddha's answer to man's troubles stating that he preached the removal of desire as ultimate goal. He never said so. Should had Dr. Hildebrand gone further to examine into the 2nd and 3rd of the "Four Truths" in the Pitakas she would have learned the difference between 'chanda' and 'tanha' that deals with the meaninful subtle differences of his Doctrine regarding desire, via dialectically processed teaching. This topic is the cornerstone of Gotama's philosophy therefore Dr Hildebrand manifests a deep incomprehension of accurate Buddhist Philosophy. Mistakes understanding Gotama's Philosophy have happened from the beginning of Buddhism. Also the Pitakas (as well as our O.T. and N.T.) show contradictions due to compilers, scribes and translators, but careful, conscientious study leads often to the Truth.
Bless her heart.
