I saw an answer through here once (I don't remember where so forgive me if I can't give you credit) but it really made sense to me for some reason. What if Jesus was just a reincarnate of Buddha? Perhaps there are more avatars that are linked to one higher being? Does that makes sense or am I off my rocker lol. Just a random though though and would be interested to see what others think
I corrected my error. Jesus came AFTer Buddha

I think both were teacher, trying to better the world around them. I like both of them. I do not believe in god though, so I wouldn't call them avatars, but if there is a god I would think god would be like the Tao. I do think there are things that can be learned from both Jesus and Buddha, but I do not think they were divine beings/incarnations.

I don't see how Buddha put himself in the place of god? He just found a philosophy on life and wanted to share it with others.

Buddha is not a god though, and he never claimed to be.
