    Would The World Be Better Off Without Religion?

    Actually no, IF there is a God of Buddhism it is the undefined unknown apophatic 'Source' (the shunya) of everything to which everything must return, possibly equivalent to Brahman. The many God(s) of the Abrahamic beliefs and Vedic beliefs do not exist.

    God and the Illogical

    The nature of God, if God exists, would omnipotent, all-powerful and all-wise. Also all of Creation would reflect the attributes and nature of God, without contradictions. God would have power over everything, therefore Creation is as God intended, and God Created humans as evolved naturally...
