    Yeeeeah... not quite the whole story. (although, as a non-Catholic, crucifixes don't make much sense to me either) But that's another thread and another discussion.

    Anyway, my friend sent me this link and said it's what he ordered for my bachelor party.*

    He's considered a messiah, and some consider him to be God. Makes perfect sense in that respect.

    Buddhism isn't a religion though. Not supposed to be anyway. It's supposed to be a way of life. Polytheistic or Gaiaism doesn't really fit the above mould.

    In Dutch, we have two words for that:

    Godsdienst and Religie
    Godsdienst is worshipping a god, religion is more like a philosophy.

    if memory serves, they do have Buddha......that's where the name comes from anyway.
    it's alive but cannot be living, it's dead but lives a mortal life.

    Nah, Buddhism can be a religion.

    The Budda is not a god, though. Unless you are thinking of Budai (Fat Budda / Laughing Buddha) - a LOT of people think that is the Buddhist Buddha (it's not). Though, reading up a bit, it looks like in Hinduism, he is considered one of the avatars of Vishnu (which is kind of weird - wasn't there some tension in the early days of Buddhism among Hindus, because of Buddhism's rejection of the caste system?).

    The Buddha was just a man (Siddhartha Gautama) who achieved Enlightenment and taught others how to do the same. Buddhism is largely based off his teachings.

    I tried to be a Buddhist for a bit; I don't have the dedication to meditate and stuff like that. Love the teachings, though, so I'm kind of all about it as a philosophy. Maybe I should give it another whirl.
