Isn't it a tad odd, that BOTH CHRIST AND BUDDHA walked the earth at the same time.......
"And so it begins".....is this what it meant?edit on 27-11-2013 by Unity_99 because: (no reason given)
It seems to me a great deal of wishful thinking is being applied here.
It just helps confirm the dates Buddha was alive--the 6th century BC.
She leaned her back against a thorn
And there she had two little babes born
I don't see how anything Islamic has relevance besides the re-use of buildings for it.
Do you dispute when Buddha lived?
A council was convened 3 months after his death of 500 followers and the first records of his life were began at the first Buddhist council in 480 BC. The date of this also confirms the dates he lived.
Within the Eastern Buddhist tradition of China, Vietnam, Korea and Japan (especially the latter two countries) the traditional date for the Mahaparinibbana (death) of the Buddha was 949 B.C., although a variant giving 878 B.C. is also possible. Earlier and down to the fifth century A.D. a date of 686 B.C. seems to have been fairly common...
In the Northern Buddhism of the Tibeto-Mongolian cultural area the Mahaparinibbana was officially dated to 881 B.C., the origin of which is not clear... This is in sharp contrast to the Southern Buddhist tradition, which has retained no memory of any disagreement over the basic chronology of events since the Buddha's lifetime. The era they preserve places the Buddha's Mahaparinibbana in 543 B.C.

...Unless Jesus was on a long walk none of us knew about, he was about 600 plus years later.
