I am pressed for time yet again, so I won't be able to respond fully...

But, as I said earlier, just because Baha'u'llah didn't mention Kepler, doesn't mean Kepler is "less" of a scientist or less worthy of attention. How many Persians at the time of Baha'u'llah knew who Kepler was? How accepted were Kepler's theories worldwide at the time of Baha'u'llah? I'm not sure... but the answers to those questions would be helpful.

And, not only social laws change. Other things in religion can change too. I will give u one example. Baha'u'llah does not call Himself a "Prophet" of God. He is a Manifestation of God. No other Prophet of old can have this distinction. Baha'u'llah is also, as Baha'is believe, the Father mentioned in the Bible (ie. "Glory of the Father"). Christ was not the Father, nor was he the Manifestation of God. He was a Prophet of God. Yes, He is from God and brought a Divine Revelation, but the cycle of prophethood ended with the Bab, and a new cycle began with Baha'u'llah. This is a slight change in the view of the religion of God. Think about it...

Just one example of many, I'm sure...

take care.
