    Buddhism is not Buddha's original teaching. It has distorted his teaching into something unrecognizable. Most of the Pali canon is corrupted by the members of the First Buddhist Council. The Sutta Nipata however has remained unaltered. As the oldest surviving Buddhist text in existence. Its tone and the words used differ so much from the rest of the suttas and later texts. That it provides a glimpse into Buddha's original teaching. Now, this doesn't mean that the later additions were bad though. Many new concepts of great philosophical value have been added. But Mahayana, Theravada and Vajrayana have a monk/priest hierarchy which wasn't present originally. It incorporates aspects of folk religion and Hindu cosmology which wasn't present in buddha's original teaching. Samsara was originally a metaphor for the cycle of idolization/attachment of object/ideas. And how that cycle will always lead to suffering/grief in the end(as nothing is permanent); each cycle of idolization you go through changes your fundamental identity as you relate to yourself in a different way. Which all happens in one lifetime. And shows that your identity isn't static(as it constantly changes). Nirvana(Nibbana) is acceptance of non-attachment; the acceptance of non-attachment annihilates your identity functionally making you the same as dead. Buddha's whole teaching was that idolization/attachment will always in the end lead to suffering. But also that idolization/attachment and suffering/grief is what makes us alive.

            Nestorian Christianity had a sizeable foothold in Eastern India (axed by the Mughals and Marathas), Inner Mongolia (axed by the Manchus) and China (Manchus again), too; to say nothing of the Philippines and some of Japan catholic populations (before the Shogunate suppressed the religion)

    Nirvana is better than being alive. If you disagree it's because you're still blinded by your physical attachments, which dupe you into going through all the pain and needless travails of living just for a few meager enticements that are nothing compared to the eternal bliss of Nirvana. Most people reincarnate because the physical is all they comprehend, they can't imagine anything outside it.

    If nihilism is the belief that there is nothing, maybe Buddhism is more annihilism, trying to achieve nothingness in world where there is simply too much somethingness

      Nothingness does not exist, existence is the basic intrinsic quality of goodness and its other cosubstantial qualities (i.e. peace, wisdom, justice, etc.)
      Nothing has no quality ascribed to it by definition and therefore can't be a """""state""""" one would willingly work toward by ANY rational, moral, emotional and physical standard.

        I have no belief either way, but are you clarifying what Buddhist belief is, or is this your personal take on nothingness

          This isn't my personal take on nothingness, it's Parmenides' tbh.
          But if translations of Buddhist concepts are correct, and that the goal of Buddhism is to vacuate "illusions", including (somehow?) qualities, which are axiomatic value measurements for the wholeness of a being, then Buddhism would be the equivalent of seeking nothingness instead of "somethingness" (which would be the Whole, the Unit, the One, aka God).
          tl;dr by seeking to rid themselves of their qualities stemming from the One, buddhists are like Satan, separating themselves and others from Oneness

            The purpose of gnosticism and platonism to seek the pleroma, which is greek for fullness. It is taught that everything that is in our reality is incomplete and are inferior copies of the true, complete forms that exist in the highest heaven. there are a lot of people who try to mix buddhism and these western religions together, this seems to put them at total odds.

    Buddhism is just an inferior equivalent of Gnosticism, and is ripped of from Orphism and Pythagoras. None of their doctrines make any sense and they're all moronic. There's a reason why japs love Gnosticism so much, it's just a better version of the garbage mysticism they grew up with.

        If you meant japs then that's the result of neo-confucianism on the whole of eastern Asia. It's completely built around promoting strict and intricate social hierarchies and enforcing social norms, it's where their huge thing about dishonor comes from.

      The "Middle Way" stems directly from Buddhists' insistence on the illusion of qualities; it is fundamentally linked to this idea of """""enlightenment""""" exist nihilo, despite that nothing comes from nothing
