[Buddha-l] What is enlightenment?

It seems to me that Buddhism has a clear and definite definition of 
what enlightenment that is neither absurd or incoherent and I don't see 
why we should abandon it in favor of Richard's definition as "whatever 
Buddhists happen to approve of."  Even if false, why abandon what's 
been consistently asserted throughout the history of Buddhism? Is 
Richard going to redefine the Trinity as "three guys Christians think 
are pretty cool?"
