Is Buddhism a religion?
I have read that Buddhism is a philosophy and then there is information regarding it as a religion. Finally, there is information regarding it as both. Is religion, in the traditional sense of the word, the system of believing and worshiping a deity? Or, can people change it freely to imply comparability? The second question implies that by making Buddhism similar to deity worshiping that it can be antagonized as being pseudo-theological.
This question is in the General Section. Responses must be helpful and on-topic.
