The list, which classifies Buddha as a god simply because Buddhism is a major religion, was certainly creates by an inadequately educated Westerner, most probably American
How many times will we have to explain this again? Buddha is an enlightened man who teaches his followers to be enlightened like him, not a god. Thinj about Fight Club, the main character is not a freaking god, he just traches his way to enlightenment
Thank you! That always bothers the hell out of me. I mean come on, take just a cursory glance at religious foundations before making lists like these. I'm a western Atheist with no background in Buddhism whatsoever and I know this, so I don't see that there's any excuse. …And double thank you for working in a Fight Club reference.
Although the Buddha certainly didn't see himself as a God, don't certain Mahayana Buddhist groups see him as such? Pure Land Buddhism comes to mind. I could be wrong though.
