Dear Cousin Anthony, I think one problem we will have in finding more areas of agreement is that we are using very different paradigms. If we can't agree there, then we will keep talking in circles as we discuss details. I've lost track of which 70th anniversary we're talking about, but I did take a...

Dear Cousin Anthony, Yes, we seem to agree about the need for an International Commission to determine the IAL issue. And we might also agree that a major stumbling-block to this International Commission is the widespread belief that English is already the de facto International Auxiliary Language. ...

Dear Cousin Anthony, Not only "thinking outside of the box", but disagreeing without even the hint of a flame war. Very nice. I still, however, have a lot of difficulty with many aspects of this point of view. While my area of expertise centers more around Esperanto, other projects, and "reform", wh...

Hello Again Folks, I finished reading through the rest of this discussion - skipping a bit over the more general issues of a world language and tangential issues of a world government. My main purpose in coming here was to focus on one issue: what do the Baha’i scriptures say about a world language,...

Hello again folks, I finally understand what Cousin Anthony meant when he said that this discussion was 4 pages long (even though it was closer to 40 when I tried to print it.) I was only seeing the first quarter of the discussion. (I guess that would make the whole thing something like 160 pages if...

(No, I don't believe Baha'u'llah was divinely influenced.) Then there's no sense for us to have this conversation here. If you want to want to discuss the potential forms of a constructed international language, you could try the Auxlang forum at Brown, which has a mirror here: http://groups.yahoo....

Hello All, I'm composing this message off line, so pardon me if I quote the old fashioned way, rather than using the quote feature of the board.

Hello Folks, Thomas Alexander here... I realize this thread is already several months old, but it was brought to my attention by Anthony Alexander, whom I affectionately and with respect like to call "Cousin Anthony" even though as far as I know, we are not directly related. It seems he's known as "...
