    Before anyone says it, most Buddhists do worship gods, especially if one includes bodhisattvas. The Budddha taught that worship of the gods was fine so long as one didn`t let it get in the way of pursuing enlightenment. Atheistic Buddhism is mostly a western phenomenon.

    The "magical underwear" part is only used by non-mormon (or non-LDS). I know no one who calls them this way. But if anyone does, they obviously don`t get it.

    "Before anyone says it, most Buddhists do worship gods, especially if one includes bodhisattvas. The Budddha taught that worship of the gods was fine so long as one didn`t let it get in the way of pursuing enlightenment. Atheistic Buddhism is mostly a western phenomenon. "
    ------------
    i think to westerners, a lot of buddhist worship appears similar to worship in the abrahamic religions (and thus as if many gods were worshipped), but in reality, there are no "gods" as we usually understand them. buddhas and boddhisattvas are enlightened beings and venerated for their guidance, but you don`t need to follow any commandments to appease them or such. technically, they are devas, a term which is usually and unfortunately translated as god but which evokes the wrong connotations (they are neither immortal / eternal nor omnipotent).

    Needs a path to Deism:
    Only One God = yes
    Love Bacon = yes
    (NEW!) Are You Intelligent?
    Yes = Deism
    No = Are you naturally annoying?

    Easy peasy!

    I have a simplified one:

    Are you rational?:
    No: Be what your parents are
    Yes: You are an atheist

    @HolyGod there is nothing rational about being an atheist, it`s a believe which lacks certian vital evidence not as much as other religions but it still does.
    Truly rational people are agnostic. they _know_ they can`t prove anything beyond a reasonable doubt and hence shut up about it.

    Oy, Mr orange.1 Atheism isn`t a belief. 2 Look up the definition of agnostic and of atheist. 3 Can`t prove anything beyond a reasonable doubt? Yes we can prove Gods don`t excist beyond reasonable doubt just not beyond religious peoples unreasonable beliefs. 4 Oh whats the point....

    @damokiwi
    1: yess atheism is a belief, the belief that no god exsist, unless of course you can prove beyond any shadow of a doubt that any form of god exists.
    to clearify this point which, as it seems confused you, i`m not talking bible and related fairytales, i`m talkin aristotlian primer mover.
    2: i`m very much aware of the definitions thank you, which could have been obvious from my usage of both terms. 3: no you can`t, i sugest you read up on descartes, aristoles third man argument, sextus impericus, and anything to do with empirical evidence. 4: yess indeed whats the point. i doubt you get what i am saying, but i`ll give you the benefit of the doubt. good luck!
