I love Buddhism's nonviolence and chillness, and I respect it wholeheartedly as a major world religion, but I could never be Buddhist.
At its core is the idea that desire leads to suffering, but is a life in which one desires nothing truly good? I agree that most earthly pleasures are extraneous, but what if I want things like a wife, friends, children, and people who love me? Is being an island really what happiness is all about?
Furthermore, don't Buddhists want to eliminate desire, a contradiction in terms?
Personally, I'd much rather look back on my life, see a bunch of ups and downs, and think to myself, "Wow, what a thrill ride!", than look back on a life of seclusion and/or nothing, due to a life in which one desires not even that which is worthwhile, and think, "Well, that was rather bland."

I don't know, what does FJ think? Is desire the root of suffering, or is desire for that which is worthwhile truly enlightening?

The secret to happiness is knowing that there's an alternate reality out there where gerbils shove humans up their ass for the sexual thrill.

So apparently religion on FJ is mocked, ridiculed, and condemned, except Buddhism.

Because Buddhism isn't violent and makes sense.

I respect all religions, but my favourite would have to be Buddhism. Peaceful, respectful, and has many bald asians.
