I read your e-mail reply carefully.Please note that I have urdu translated "KITAB-I-IQAN" published by Mehfil-Milli India,Pakistan &Burma (printed in 1955) & distributed by the Bahai's in the region.The wording is "ELME-PHALSAPHA & ELME-KIMIA",WHICH MEANS SCIENCE & Chemistry.Please read original text(persain) for beter clearance.In fact at the time of matching Bahaullah says that science & chemistry are rejected & dead knowledges and not conected to understand pure & everlasting knowledges and they are not right contentions to know the truth.(page-123).Moreover Bahaullah says on the same page as He qouted a persain verse "ALL UNDERSTANDINGS ARE RIDING ON LAME DONKEY & TRUTH IS FLYING ON AIR LIKE ARROW".It seems that the principle UNITY OF SCIENCE & RELIGION" is prepared after His disappreance.
Your claim is that niether science not bahai-faith recognize "ALCHEMY",but Bahaullah says in KITAB-I-IQAN (page-105)A PERFACT PANACEA CAN CHANGE BRASS-METTLE INTO GOLD IN A SUDDEN".Please concider.
In reply of your last paragraph I like to say:-If you understand that meanings of HOLY-BOOKS should be understand according to modren phenomena I again repeat my question,WHAT DID THE PEOPLE OF OLD ERAS UNDERSTAND WHEN THE VERSES OF HOLY BOOKS REVEALED BEFORE THEM & DO YOU WANT TO CHANGE THE MEANINGS AND HISTORY IN YOUR OWN INTEREST?IF THEY UNDERSTOOD SOME THING ELSE AND YOU UNDERSTAND OTHERS MEANINGS, THIS A CONTRADUCTIO NOT UNITY OF RELIGION (WAHDAT-E-ADYAN).
