    Why didn't you post this in the Chat forum? 'AMA' threads are hardly constructive or warrant a genuine/serious discussion in forums outside of Chat.

    Considering you've been here since 2012, you should know better than to make a mockery of the other forums.

    Oh I'm sorry, I genuinely didn't know that! I didn't really think that, since it was about my religion. Also I wasn't trying to mock the forum :/ Is there a way to move it?

    You can choose 'Report post' in the top right corner, and select 'Posting help' and then 'Thread Move' - you can then leave a comment in the text box requesting to have it moved to the appropriate forum.

    Make a mockery of the other forums? Lol, a mod will move it. Don't get why people need to fuss so much.
    Why did you become a buddhist?

    Thank you

    Well, I was born into a Buddhist family really and I have no interest in converting religions because I prefer Buddhism out of all of them.

    Well it's all down to faith really. I won't be able to prove if buddhism is real as you say!

    It's basically a bunch of funny stories, it's of Theravada buddhism. There's one story about a spirit, I won't say anymore and spoil the story. I know of them from my dad who is Atheist Buddhist(Theravada), but we're Indian.
