"In its narrowest sense the term atheist means one who denies the existence of any and all gods.... In the Western world outright atheism, i.e., atheism in its narrowest sense, has been unfashionable since the 19th century, having yielded to the agnosticism which Robert Ingersoll summed up thus: 'Is there a God?

There were other highly influential sects and movements... Most influential were the Manichaeans. Manichaeism developed into a sophisticated body of religious thought that was both influenced by Christianity & attractive to many Christians... The Manichaeans were not devil worshipers or followers of the principle of evil. Actually they were generally more ascetic & rigid than Christians of the time... Manichaeism was declared a dangerous heresy, and... [was] persecuted with ruthless vigor. As far as most official histories are concerned, the belief was wiped out in the West in about the 6th century. But many think that Manichaean beliefs continued to flourish underground for centuries, perhaps even to the present day. "

Reprint; originally pub. as Abingdon Dictionary of Living Religions, 1981; pg. 609. "There seems to be a belief among some people in the West, apparently without any systemic religious foundation, in what may be called random reincarnation. This is part of the widespread emphasis on the occult and the uncanny. There is talk about persons having memories which cannot be explained without recourse to the notion that they are remembering some previous existence. This prior life may have taken place in fairly recent history, or it may go back to antiquity or even to prehistory. But there does not seem to be any organized philosophy behind this belief. "

Reprint; originally published as Abingdon Dictionary of Living Religions, 1981; pg. 825. "Zen's impact on the West, especially the United States, is a significant aspect of Zen today. Zen master Soyen Shaku's appearance at the World Parliament of Religions at the Chicago World's Fair of 1893, several decades of work by D. T.
