<<--Let's get one thing straight. During Muhammad's time, everyone was wild. There were no prisons, police, etc. The men were wild, uneducated, as were the women. The men were more of a threat, so that is why the one's that attacked the Muslims needed to be killed.-->> #1. i think u are talking abou...

<--Christ could not have been an "impostor." Look at what an influence He had on the whole world. The sheer numbers of Christians is proof enough. No "cult" can ever get that big. The Writings say that the best proof of the validity of a religion is the impact it has on its adherents, and of course ...

<<--Why doesn't God punish two people who are backbiting? Or someone that makes fun of another person? I see it happening every day. Granted, killing someone is much worse than backbiting, but they are both wrong and we are told not to do them. We see injustice of many forms, no matter where we are....

<<--When Bahá’u’lláh talks of the afterlife, He lets us know that He, as well as the previous Prophets of God, can only tell us what it means metaphorically.

<<--And the point is: since when is humanity “worshipping” God? We can tell someone who is sincere from someone who is insincere by his very actions! Do you think guys with bombs strapped to themselves are God fearing? Do you think priests who fondle little boys are worshipping God? They might think...
