I've been studying Buddhism for a while now and I don't understand something, is Buddha a God? I've never thought that Buddha was a deity, just someone who has been enlightened and teaches of the Dharama. However, I was reading this book a few days ago "Entering the Stream" and it talks about this crazy birth of Buddha. Like he's born then starts walking around and talking. :bugeye: I don't get that. No normal child would just jump out of you and do that. So was The Buddha a God or not?
