Buddhism is more a philosophy than religion and has some good things going for it. Siddhãrtha Gautama (Buddha) reputedly said that you should not believe in anything simply because it is:

Rather, Buddha suggested that when you find anything that agrees with reason and is conducive to the benefit of one and all, then accept it and live up to it. Whether you prescribe to the rest of Buddhism, or not, these principles are sound.

Buddhism declares that part of life is suffering, and all suffering can be overcome through the mind. Buddhism encourages constant evaluation and development of morality, focus, and wisdom—that life's struggles can be overcome.
