Mahayana Buddhism Is Like Catholicism
a: Mahayana buddhism ~
What: "Mahayana Buddhism is like Catholicism in that both religions deify their prophet and worship him with the understanding of him as being beyond mortal. Theravada Buddhism, on the other hand, is more like Oriental Orthodox Christianity in that both follow the teachings of their prophet without attributing to him any form of divinity or supernatural aspects.

METAMIA is a free database of analogy
and metaphor. Anyone can contribute or search.
The subject matter can be anything.
Science is popular, but poetry is encouraged.
The goal is to integrate our fluid muses with
the stark literalism of a relational database.
Metamia is like a girdle for your muses,
a cognitive girdle.
