It is true that he rarely addressed questions concerning the existence or nature of God, but this was only because such questions were not being discussed by the leading religious thinkers of the time. Neither Mahāvīra, the founder of Jainism, Pūrana Kassapa, Makkhali Gosāla, Ajita Kesakambalī nor the Buddha himself, gave the concept of a supreme being any place in their philosophies. And when the god-idea was discussed, the Buddha made his position certain and clear – he rejected it as evidentially, logically and morally untenable."
