Its good to note that some judgements in life are as a result of our actions as well.

This could/should be applied as a universal standard, as not in the sense of judgement, but in the sense of space exploration, as humans our moral code would apply even on the face of the Moon or in the confines of the ISS or on any distant planet.

If Aldrin would have tripped Armstrong and ran down the ladder first, well this would reflect on his character even on the Moon.

I really like this Buddha as I said before.

The only reason really why I'm posting here again is to show off this new pic I found its pretty neat, and actually says alot, at least to me it did, and that may not mean much. What do you guys feel it is saying?

Isn't that the Jesus Dude action figure from Dogma? If it is, I think it's saying "Buy this toy!", or "Marketing Photo."

Really?  I find absolutely nothing in Buddhist belief that indicates anything remotely evil.

Here have a read, as it appears you are mistaken.
