God is not a Jew, Christian, Muslim, Buddhist, or any other religious person. He is the Creator of the tree of life and the tree of the knowledge of good and evil where all religions, science, languages, mathematics, songs, poetry, man, beast, trees, rocks, prophets, saints, believers, etc. can be observed by His created people and beasts.

Buddhism has a Fatal Flaw which was discovered by brain scans of meditating Buddhist monks. The Fatal Flaw is believing severe brain manipulation using meditative techniques to stop electrical flow going into the brain's sense of self center where our sense of self seems located constitutes "enlightenment" when self is replaced by the ego-less sensation and thinking coming from the shunted electrical energy going to the frontal lobes where higher cognition and pleasure centers are located. "Enlightenment" then means literally creating a hole in your head where the brain's sense of self center is tranquilized and non functioning. The question must automatically arise, how is this any different from using drugs while also can tranquilize the brain to avoid psychic pain? There is no real difference except one uses outside chemicals and the other triggers inside chemistry, but both aim to avoid psychic pain by changing the brain's awareness of things. In short, Buddhism does nothing about the real world outside but only masks it with an altered brain that doesn't register psychic pain and is willing to pay the price of not having a sense of self center that makes walking and keeping the enlightenment headset in place hard to do--which is why one sees thousands of sleepy eyed Buddha statues lying down, or sitting, but never walking or running. Need a functioning sense of self center to do those things properly. And you need a whole brain to deal with modern social problems and not one deliberately disabled to make a person feel high.

Pauline Christianity has a Fatal Flaw which is being based upon Bible belief and the Jewish myths of origin. These have already been debunked by archeological science so there's no real spiritual authority obtained from Bible beliefs.

Muhammad too believed in the Jewish Bible stories which are proven only myths of origin and totally untrue to history of Jews. So Muhammadism too is a false path.

The only true spiritual path to God has always been the personal religious belief way of Gnosis of God, i.e. personal experience of spiritual contact with God or the Spirit of Christ. These experiences do not rely on believing in another person's experiences of God which are not your own and therefore are inauthentic to yourself. Only personal relationship with God is valid. All else in following man-made religion instead of following God.

I teach Celestial Torah Christianity which is a modern yet ancient Gnostic system of belief. It cannot be overturned by historical discovery as is the fate of all Abrahamic religions which falsified their origins to fool believers.

Nowhere except in the Jewish bible is the tree of life and the tree of knowledge of good and evil mentioned. Even your created existence is not mentioned in the bible. Have you tried looking for Brad Holkesvig a homeless alcoholic with severe mental problems, it comes up blank?

If you could cite this, that would be great. I never have heard of this. Also, the core of Buddhism doesn't lay in meditation. Just thought to let you know.

Real research proves otherwise.

"People who meditate grow bigger brains than those who don't. Researchers at Harvard, Yale, and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology have found the first evidence that meditation can alter the physical structure of our brains. Brain scans they conducted reveal that experienced meditators boasted increased thickness in parts of the brain that deal with attention and processing sensory input."

"Our data suggest that meditation practice can promote cortical plasticity in adults in areas important for cognitive and emotional processing and well-being," says Sara Lazar, leader of the study and a psychologist at Harvard Medical School. "These findings are consistent with other studies that demonstrated increased thickness of music areas in the brains of musicians, and visual and motor areas in the brains of jugglers. In other words, the structure of an adult brain can change in response to repeated practice."

Foolish thinking. Of course corresponding "muscles" would develop in our brains when repetitive thought-actions occur. That's the problem with meditation: you are making thinking musculature for "non-thinking", for not using your brain's problem solving abilities to solve problems of living. You are running away from that sort of thinking. And the more time you spend running away in transcendental meditation instead of existential problem solving, the more your societies waste time and resources supporting basic avoidance of life problems for seeking mental escape.

When Buddhist minds lead science and culture then you would have a case for higher consciousness with Buddhism. But really, did Timothy Leary really have "higher consciousness" because he used LSD to expand his brain's thinking ability? Or did it in the end amount to nothing more than ego on parade as brain manipulation isn't the way to deal with Life either through drugs or through intensive meditation.
