is there any religion in the world that is not a complete cluster f*** of irony?

I thought Hinduism and Buddhism would be the answer to Western religious trolling. boy, did I learn the hard way. >_>

H: Caste system, reincarnation as punishment
B: Life is suffering. Live an entire lifetime to do nothing but suffer.

The artwork is quite nice though, don't you agree?

See, that makes the typical debate question of "Why is there suffering in the world" a little bit different, don't it?

You can find as much "irony" as you want, wherever you want, if you try hard enough.

oh s*** I had a total mind meltdown just now, consider this:
What if (in keeping with Daoist/Taoist philosophy) God is actually Dualistic in nature?
And Satan is merely a representation of his bad side? pause.............. is your mind blown?
Fits in rather nicely to explaining the Abrahamic religions.

I found enough irony in the first 3 books of Genesis?
And somewhere in the middle of Leviticus.

Except for the part where Jesus talks to Satan in person, and doesn't give any inclination that he is talking to God, which would be himself.

You have to admit that it does fall in line, though. After all, God impregnated a woman with himself and Jesus did sacrifice himself to be with himself in heaven.

You're oversimplifying both of them, but as far as Buddhism goes, you seem to have missed the other three Noble Truths. If Buddhism began and ended with just the first one, it would be nothing but a pessimistic observation that would have been forgotten long ago. The Buddha was not a pessimist, however. There's a reason why he's usually depicted with a little Mona Lisa smile on his face.

Just so we're clear the laughing buddha is not Siddartha Guatama....
