And that current interpretation contradicts itself on many occasions, thus rendering Christianity THE most useless religion to follow. Buddhism is way better if I was forced to choose one.

I'm not dissing or thinking Scientology on purpose if that's what you're thinking. I'm just an atheist and approach facts scientifically.

because of the heaven/hell thing, religion motivates to fanaticism in a more than anything else. but we can get fanatical about anything (football hooliganism anyone?)
and people were sadistic, twisted, imperialistic, amoral and hyppcritical before jesus came along, and will be so untill after 'christ' is just the first six letters of christmas (which, fyi, is never going away)

Well, as one atheist to another, I think it's sort of silly to start comparing religions to see which one is better than the other. The good ideas in Christianity and Buddhism are good ideas because they make sense, and when we think about them we can see that they agree with reality. It's the same with the bad ideas.
So, good and bad ideas stand or fall by their own merit.
For example, the Golden Rule is a good idea because it makes sense to treat people the way you would want to be treated, not because it's a part of Christian doctrine. That's just one example, but there are many more.

I was comparing the moral ethics and not the gods worshipped.

Then it sounds like we agree.
