    are all individualistic. Some people NEED that god-crutch, and so they get it.  Some people don't need it, so they don't get it.  (shrug)

    There are many many different levels of Buddhism. Some people never get further than the first few stages. Some people go all the way through (and the highest goal of Buddhism is to not need it at all).

    As I said before, the question to be asked of each view is not "is it right?", but "is it right FOR ME?"

    PS--I've been studying Taoism, Buddhism, Zen and Hinduism for almost 30 years now.  I'm a little bit familiar with them.  ;)
