What are the major commonalities and differences between Buddhism and other religions?

All good religions share the wholesome values such as loving kindness, compassion, empathy, good deeds and equality etc. Buddhism, however, advocates that wisdom is vital in attaining enlightenment, not just faith. Other differences are dependent origination rather than creationism; self-purification and liberation from within  rather than by any exterior power or super-being; existence is a perpetual cycle like a circle  rather than a straight line with a beginning and an end; and that our future is solely in our own hands because of causality (cause and effect - karma) rather than monitored and bestowed by a super being.
