by To accept the inevitable = peace:

I find it hard to place it under religion as they don’t believe in any god. However they do believe in some form of afterlife.

Answer by The Wise Owl
I consider it more of a mixture of philosophy and religion.

  2. I am studying a lot about Buddhism. It is very complicated. It is a religion but it really is a philosophy or a way of life. You can still be a Christian and practice Buddhism. I started to become interested in it as I want to practice meditation more. It is very peaceful. If the world practiced Buddhism there would be no wars.

  3. It’s known as a philosophy. They reach for Nirvana. They do not deny god and religions but only practice Budhism. It’s a way of life.

  4. While I was in Thailand I noticed that a lot of the Wats (temples) were gold plated just like a lot of churches here. Plus monks go around begging for rice and money. This seems like superstition is at work and makes me want to place it under religion.

  5. No supernaturalism = no religion
    Their notion of the afterlife is merely rebirth within our world. They have no concept of the supernatural hence it is not a religion.
