Edwards J. Thomas said the oldest account of Buddhas ancestry appear to presuppose nothing abnormal about his birth, and merely speaks of him being well born both on his mother's and father's side for seven generations. According to the later legends he is born not as other human beings, but in the same way as a universal king he descends from the Tusita heaven by his own choice, and with this his father is not concerned. This is not properly a virgin birth, but it may be called pathogenetic, that is, suddhodana was not his progenitor. The Buddhist traditions represent Buddha as a superior and revered being.

Buddha's followers were called and renounced the world and live in poverty but Christians were not called to live in poverty. In the new testament jesus called people of many different walks of life and there is no evidence all Christians are supposed to be poor. Yes some are given that calling but not all.
There's no evidence of a transfiguration on a mount buddha was just set to glow because of his enlightenment there is no tradition that says Buddha died on a cross or buried in the tomb. Nirvana is not a place one ascends but a state of being a late chinese document says buddha opened his coffin to speak but then closed it again. Buddha is not said to return, there will be a future Buddha and will be a different person entirely.
We are going to reveal to you our conception of the thing between schools of buddhism and the sermon of trinity, there is no fundamental and proven fact that testifies that jesus is god or that buddha is a supreme being, the truth is in your heart. If you believe in a god, seek him and we are sure he will answer you. As a Christian blog we do not try to convince you with scientific proofs because it is impossible but we let god act spiritually if your heart desires it.
For we are here to state facts and not to discuss the philosophical conception of the spiritual world. If you are looking for a spiritual quest, we advise you to be guided by faith.
