Is atheism compatible with Buddhism? [View all]

Last edited Mon Aug 13, 2012, 12:58 PM - Edit history (1)

Because it doesn't worship an imaginary being, but rather the teachings of a person, or are they mutually exclusive?

I am a person that has recently finalized the journey to atheism (damn that whole "logic" thing), but I have always been curious about Buddhism from the personal enlightenment point of view. I like the idea of being self-aware, and seeing things 'even-bigger-picture', and wondered if that means I'm not actually not an atheist at all but simply ex-xtian/Buddha-curious..

Thoughts?

On Edit: Any suggestions as to what books I should be looking at?
