Thought the teachings are green in a lot of aspects, I'd not classify Bahá'u'lláh in any narrow human denomination with its respective activities.

Re: 1000 years.

How do we know that will be it? I find it odd that, after almost every previous prophecy of the next Manifestation has been esortic and nobody has understood it, like the whole Elisiah thing. Why would the prophecy made by Baha'u'llah be so simple? 1000 years just seems too easy to me. Every time S...

In relation to the person of next Prophet, I have to add, what Bahá'u'lláh says in the Surih to Vafa about the Return, He opens the possibility that next Prohet could be a woman, and "unto no one is given the right to utter why or wherefore, and should one do so he would be regarded as a disbeliever...

That's my opinion: I think humans are the worst rational beings of the Galaxy, not for coincidence Bahá’u’lláh (a Universal Manifestation) appeared here; Manifestations usually appear in the worst place.

If Baha'i teaches Christ as a prophet, amongst others, then doesnt that conflict when He claims he is the only way to God?

I don’t get why to ask about a new world order, Mr. Evo Morales is Fidel and Chavez's putative son, as well as Mr. Humala (military candidate from Peru)
