Why do so many assume that Buddha is the god of Buddhism?


Very often, when religions are compared, certain people will lump Buddha in with other deities like Vishnu, Yahweh, and Allah (though it can be argued the latter two are just different names for the same deity). Yet, as far as I know, Buddha was simply the source of Buddhist teachings and modern followers do not consider him a god. I don't think Buddhism recognizes any deities at all, so why do you think Buddha is assumed to be a deity by passive observers?

    Ah Kathleen, but there is gravitational fields throughout space. The moon is held in orbit due to the gravitational pull of the earth, the Earth because of the Sun's gravitational pull. Tides are controlled by the gravitational pull of the moon.
