Perhaps every public demonstration of faith may include elements of
self-deception, exaggeration and distorted perception. But excluding
the possibility of any element of authentic experience in it is also
illogical and conceited.
Actually given what is going on in brain research it is quite likely that
all spritual experience is the result of self-deception, if not outright fraud.
Just because a class of Buddhists believes the Dalai Lama to be the
reincarnated Buddha of Compassion does not make him so, nor is it really the way to
bet any more than it would be to actually think the Pope can be infallible
Was the Buddha enlightend? Probably not.
Was Jesus the Son of God? Definitely not.
Is the kid sitting under the tree anything but a fraud? Of course not.
