religion is still basing faith on an imaginary friend to explain away mysteries which individuals are unable to comprehend.

The need to have faith in an imaginary friend demonstrates a weakness of character. IMO.

^ All religions are not faith-based.

Faith-based = Western

Buddhism (and Eastern religion in general) is not faith-based. That is not to say that there aren't elements of faith involved, but rather that such elements are not essential to the philosophical focus, which is living a better, happier, and more rewarding life in the here and now.
