Hinduism, buddhist and such are superstitious junk. Designed out of fear and ignorance.

It seems you failed to spot the plank in your eye, but saw the speck in your neighbor's eye.
Or, as your beloved King James Bible says: "And why beholdest thou the mote that is in thy brother's eye, but considerest not the beam that is in thine own eye?"
Buddhism has very little superstition, to my knowledge. It's mostly "what you do to others will come back to you eventually". If you are kind and generous, others will be kind and generous to you. If you are supercilious and and snooty towards others, you will be looked down up on and mocked.
Hey, what do you know, it's working already.
Funny that, that is what i think of christianity and islam.
"Hinduism, buddhist and such are superstitious junk. Designed out of fear and ignorance."
Every irony meter in the past, present & future has surpassed the Large Hadron Collider in it's goal to replicate the period just after the Big Bang, and is proceeding to replicate the Big Crunch.
All motivation, including all superstition, and all delusion can be ultimately attributed to fear of something or some kind. Try it if you don't believe me.
Example: eating - fear of death and/or pain.
You believe that God will smite all unbelievers from a holy cloud of righteousness or what have you, and your scripture says to kill gays, and
BUDDHISM is designed out of fear and ignorance?
Funniest thing I've read all week, and thanks to the delights of this website that is truly saying something.
Look who´s talking!!
sadly this ignorance is widespread.
Come on... Just one more step- you can do it!

"Buddhist" is designed out of fear and ignorance?
Edit. Damn it, I had already commented on this one. Oh well...

Oh the irony. Buddhists and Hindus dont threaten with hell like Jesus believers do, in fact, Buddhists teach to overcome suffering, something that christians cant seem to comprehend......"You believe you are evil, so shall you become." I doubt that was a superstitious statement, also some of thE garbage Jesus spouted was Buddhist.

Isn't Buddhism one of the only major religions without a supernatural component? So how would it be "superstitious"? <<
That all depends on which Buddhist you ask. It varies a lot. On the one hand, the Tibetan Buddhists assert that the Dalai Lama is in some sense reincarnated. On the other hand, some Zen teachers assert that there is no supernatural component to Buddhism at all.
The odd thing about this quote is that if it were not on Rapture Ready, it might be from an atheist fundie.

All religions are, though i've met several Hindus as well as several Bhuddists, they are much nicer people than you, sorry to say.

Does that shiny mirror blind you?

If you actually did the research, you would know that buddhism is not a religion.
