I dont have the direct proof, which is no exuse, but a former buddhist monk removed anything that could not be artributed to the budda, ie all the things that probably crossed over from the current indian relgions, and the things that were definetly said by him support this. plus the current rage of what is best called anti-theism is not what should be thought of when athiesm is said, not that you did, just puttin that out there
You see us as you want to see us...In the simplest terms, in the most convenient definitions. But what we found out is that each one of us is a brain...and an athlete...and a basket case...a princess...and a criminal...Sincerely yours, the Breakfast Club.
