I have one Jeff, since we are comparing the Buddha to the crucified savior
of mankind. Buddha is often depicted in a lotus position with an enormous
belly flopped all over the place. Revolting! Compare to christ on the
cross: that sucker is ripped! Check out the buff six pack abs on that dude.
Do you ever see a Buddha with a decent physique? No! Do you ever see a
painting or a sculpture of Jesus with ugly cellulite or a big flabby belly
hanging down? No! The Buddhists need to fix that, forthwith.
