What do you all know about the BAHAI FAITH?

The opinion I've formed over the years on religion: Believe whatever you want as long as it makes you a good person.

From this: http://www.religioustolerance.org/bahai.htm --

We learn that it was started in Iran and is considered by some to be a breakaway sect of Islam.

From the article:
Quote:
Bahá'ís believe in a single God who has repeatedly sent prophets into the world through whom he has revealed the "Word of God." Prophets include Adam, Krishna, Buddha, Yeshua of Nazareth (Jesus), Mohammed, The Bab and Baha'u'llah.

That's nice and all, but prove that some if not all of these prophets really ever existed.

Well, if it's an Iranian import, it will be considered a terrorist organization, anyway.

Hmmmm....far too many religions ARE "terrorist" organizations in their own way. They sure do put the "fear of God" into some people, although it doesn't make them better people in most cases. :twisted:

Just look at the POTUS as an example! :roll:

It seems to be the worldwide equivalent of a non-denominational church. A liberal attempt to bring unity to religion. While not as physically dangerous as the fundamentalists, just as mentally dangerous.
