Is Buddhism atheistic?
“If Buddhism is called atheism on account of its refusal to take poetry for actual fact, its followers would have no objection to the designation.”
D.T. Suzuki on “God” in Outlines of Mahayana
I received this question as a comment on this post, in response to the above quote.
Q. I am right if I think that Buddhism still believes in the supernatural so it is not atheism? I am taught that Atheism relies on scientific evidences unlike religions that believe in spirits. I am a Christian by the way.
