As a pureland buddhist i believe in the buddhas, why would the buddha speak about them if they are made up? could this view just be part of the reformation that became vajrayana buddhism? distinguishing it from mahayana? there are other people on the net that have similar views to the article, i posted it as it best described what i've been trying to explain here.
Buddhism isn't a one single view kind of religion on the metaphysical and philosophical side I am afraid. In Vajrayana there are many differences in the way how to approach the Buddha's, for many different people with different inclination. It is no small matter unfortunately. I am still not sure what bothers you?
