Who built this and why, I wonder.

Ancient Xtains

Buddhist monks built them, to illustrate the various punishments people may face in Naraka (Buddhist Hell). There are a number of these "theme parks" in Thailand; if you are interested in learning more, here is a blog post with plenty of links:

Buddhism's trying to have it both ways, isn't it?

EvilHomer - 2015-09-27

"Both ways" in what sense?

That guy - 2015-09-27

As in, the folk religion side of it seems to just be stapled and duct taped to the philosophy side.

That guy - 2015-09-27

It is a religion with supernatural in it vs. it isn't and there isn't.

I just figured only the sage, loving, non-materialistic, philosophical side made it to the west. When eastern religions were gaining popularity in the west I don't think they wanted the hell and demons part with it. These were people getting out of American Christianity.

EvilHomer - 2015-09-28

Yeah, what Cena said! The thing with Buddhism is that, as a meme, it's very good at grafting itself on to whatever society it travels to. America got a watered down non-religion that was inoffensive to Christians and science-fearing atheists alike, but only because that's what Americans wanted Buddhism to be - in truth, Buddhism has always had deep "religious" and "supernatural" elements, and the notion that Buddhism is inherently atheistic has little or no support outside of California.

I have a good word for it. Buddhism became Oprah-cized, when it came to the States.

EvilHomer - 2015-09-28

That is a great word. Do you mind if I use it from now on?

Cena_mark - 2015-09-28

Nope. Oprah-cizing is a menace to society. I'm a tea lover, and was disgusted to hear of Oprah trying to Oprah-cize tea with her own Teavanna (which was already overpriced fruit infused rubbish) tea line. I read an article about it and her quotes were just Oprah.

Could be worse.

The new Kidrobot line is pretty out there.

chumbucket - 2015-09-28

Well there seems to be a theme and it is a park, so it kind of fits the bill.

So what are the midway games like?
