You can call it a game of chance if you want. But tell me... Did Buddah ever say he was a god? Did he ask us to follow him? Is there ANY good reason to follow him? Did he show evidence that he was divine?
I'll entertain the game of chance analogy this way: If you are playing poker and you got a royal flush, then bet the ranch man, bet the ranch! But if you got a pair of two's... yer gonna lose.
My encouragement for you and anyone else is to investigate the claims, and only trust the one who backed it up. Don't follow something that is based on nothing.
