Buddhism is no religion, remember it

For the last time, Buddhism is not a religion.

"Why?", you ask, nitwit? Because the Buddha was no god and never claimed to know of the existence of one, dude. Above all, Buddhism is a paradigm, a way of thinking in life.
It's main pillars are:

Non-extremism/moderation; a path of moderation away from the extremes of self-indulgence and opposing self-mortification.
the Right speech, actions, effort, excercise, mindfullness, awareness, meditation, concentration, understanding
To refrain from (the usual) killing, lying, luxury,...
Want negation!

Remember kids, there's only so much Wikipedia is right about. You have to check and know for yourself sometimes. Stay in school, for Buddha's sake!
