Needless to say, however, I don't need to believe in them because they are irrelevant in achieving happiness. I think we are perfectly capable of improving ourselves and aiding others without the motive of receiving a paradise-like afterlife. If anything, that is kind of a selfish reason to go about things. Don't you think?
buddhism on a secular level is excellent.

Yes it is in Wat Muang province in Thailand. Do you know where this Buddai one is located exactly? There seems to be no info on this one.

Buddha wouldn't be too happy with those. However, they're certainly impressive.

Don't worry. He'll get over it.

I'm sure he wouldn't really have been phased by it that much. He just would've been disappointed in the followers of his philosophy, but he'd just accept it and move on.

He would probably care enough to "fix" the architects approach to Buddhism/Buddha himself. He would probably end up speaking to whomever had the design in mind.
