As some of you may remember, there exists an OLD grilled cheese sandwich (at least 12 years old) which sold on eBay for $28,000, supposedly because it bears the image of the

The worst part of it is the assumption that we know what the Virgin Mary (or anyone else from that era, really), looked like.

I should find an image of Buddha on an enchilada or something, and then we can argue over whether it was really fat happy Chinese Buddha or boney "I just meditated for a month on a single grain of rice, bitch" West Indian Buddha.

Buddism is a pretty good religion, as far as ive heard.

They dont believe in any gods, they treat all life with respect, their monks are unimaginably wise, and I have never heard of a war fought over buddism.

Buddism isn't really a religion.

Unless you're one of those Buddists that doen't really pay attention to what Buddha actually said. Then its' a religion.

Eh, I mean, by technical standards, Buddhism could be considered a cult, as its devotion is generally focused on the words of a single person instead of a group of persons or god.

There were other sort of disciples of Buddha who went on to have their own significance, Nagarjuna, Bodhisattva, Bodhiadharma, Mahakasyapa... but Buddha's the main man.

There are also some who integrate the Hindu cosmology into the whole thing, claiming that Buddha helped convince Indra and other traditional Indian dieties of their own eventual mortality (everything ends in Hindu mythology, even hell, it just takes a REALLY LONG TIME), allowing the two to be reconciled, but I don't think there are too many adherants of that in modern times.

And there were a couple of wacky wars and crusades held over who believed what, but they got over that pretty quickly.

It may look like Christianity, but it tastes like Buddhism.
