Default Bahai

Anyone ever heard of Bahai. It's a faith that believes Jesus Christ, Mohammed, Buddha & The Bab were all spiritual messengers, and should all be viewed as equally important. The Bab (prounounced Bob) is the most recent one. I disagree w/ it as far as being spiritual messengers, but at least the philosophy of it solves the problem, which religion is right?
Answer, they're all right. We all follow 1 god. We just have different names for him. If some believe there are many gods, it doesn't mean they should be exiled. When some people thought the earth was flat, they weren't being mamed for their beliefs. I'm not even saying that it's crazy to think there are more than 1 god. Some people see the sun, stars and constellations as gods. What's wrong w/ that. The Sun could be representative of our source of life, and it gives us life, without it we would perish, so it could be seen as god. Stars could serve the same purpose for other lifeforms in other galaxies far away. I just say they're all right and leave it at that. It's a lot better than fighting wars w/ people bcuz u don't refer to something by the same name, as some of our ancient ancestors did.

It seems like a sound philosophy, but it also seems like a bit of a cop-out to me. "Which religion is right? All of them."

What are you saying, you'd rather die being right, than explore the possibility that you don't know everything? I'm not saying you'll die bcuz you believe your religion is right, but why not at least admit that you don't know everything yet, and never will know everything, so why not just say, 'Others could b right, I could see that'

I said nothing of the sort, I'm just saying that the whole jist of it sounds to me like a cop-out. But hey, to each his own.

I wouldn't throw Buddhism, Satanism and Christianity in the same bucket.

Thats what I'm sayin


I agree that each person has the right to praise their own god, but to say that its the same entity, just with a different name, is wrong.

Believing in a god/ or gods, to me is the same thing. And when I say that, remember it's okay if it's a copout or compromise to some degree bcuz nations hav actually gone to war over not being the same religion. As far as atheist, I don't bash them. Then I would be a hypocrite,bcuz I don't consider myself a patriot. To be in spiritual dissent is no different than to be in political dissent. An atheist clearly doesn't believe in gods, I know most atheists aren't bad people. A lot of them are very rational thinking people. I just wish everyone would investigate, and leave everyone else free to investigate for themselves.

It is a free country, believe whatever you want. We may disagree around here, but in the end we all respect each other's right of personal opinion.

As far as Satanist, you're obviously look at Satan as some type of godly or higher being; or lower being; lower being the same as higher. Did you know the human eye sees everything upside down, then like a camera, refracts the lights to look right side up. So right now the earth is above you, higher than the ceiling which is actually the floor, which you're sitting on upside down, typing on an upside down computer. HaHa Wacky
