    Wth kind of religion is called God or Spirits? Did you mean Christianity and Paganism? I know you meant Buddhism when you said Buddah.

    Do you mean Shintoism, for what you're calling spirits?

    ~!!! I am sure that he must be referring to the beliefs of Shintoism, but keep in mind that it doesn't just deal with kami, gods, and spirits, but also with the elements of nature. Buddhism and Shintoism are not exclusive, they coexist, just Hinduism and Buddhism, though you might find seperate temples here and there.

    Buddhism and Shintoism aren't really religions so much as they are spiritual practices. Since neither one of them have a God of any type.

    Eheh, it depends on how you look at it. In essence, what's spoken in all religious doctrines are of spiritual practices. Without practice, what's the use of believing in something? Nothing.

    Anyways, I will just leave the technicality to you.
