Im atheist, but I'm looking into Buddhism. Could someone please tell me about it?

It's atheist intrinsically. It's about living a life free from suffering and delusion which implies and exclaims explicitly that their are no gods. This is because there is no evidence and its delusional to see something that is not there. The path of enlightenment shows us just a philosophy, though there are poisonous religious forms as well. Hope and desire and two common poisons and you'll notice that most people don't even realize that wanting and not getting is suffering. In fact in western society- they teach you hope is something good- the Buddhists have known for a long time how truly poisonous is really is.

Your welcome. Buddhism has helped me greatly overcome my inequity in life and come to terms with reality. I wouldn't trade it for all the money in the world. Perhaps it has been the single most influential part of my life and the best part.

Btw, don't bother with holy books, I've been down that road and they all lead to violence and hatred. Buddha teaches there is nothing higher than compassion- not even gods.

I'm pretty sure it's got something to do with inner peace. I know meditation is one big thing in Buddhism. Try to find Truthisobvious, she should be able to tell you

Excuse me, but I think for myself, you should try it. It got me out of those Abrahamic religions.

Also Christianity teaches by fear, if you dont say that Jesus is your savior you burn for eternity, even if you are a good person. Christianity also supplies no peace of mind, it only tells you how bad you are and how much you sin and you cant stop it. Also i wouldn't join a religion were the followers have disrespect towards others, Buddishm is not 'junk' its an atheistic religion. Be more respectful and open minded please.

Kenna, this kind of arrogance does injustice to your faith. This dismissive attitude is all too typical.

Buddhism tells you to follow what is called the Middle Path or what we call "Madhya Marga" which means being realistic. Meditation is practiced in Buddhism to make you aware of your existence in this infinite universe. (you see I'm half Buddhist)

Hm...If u believe in me that have searched and read and asked every where about the best Religion...., I suggest u to search more about Islam of credible references...up to now It have answers of all my questions!
It's Scripture (The Quran) have lots of mysteries that a huge part of it is not discovered up to now...this make it always new and also make it so attractive...
