Comment 3 by Schrodinger's Cat :

Insofar as Buddhism doesn't have a god and is primarily based on the philosophical musings of its founder......there comes a point where one has to wonder just exactly what is the demarcation line between 'religion' and politics. I mean, Marxism also has no god and is based on someone's observations of the world. Indeed...I've met Marxists who've had all the fervour of any religious zealot.

I've tried to point this out, that religion is external and not internally generated. There are no beliefs at the core of religion, only delusions and rationalizations for obedience to authority and lack of self-control.
