Ok, Freedo, why is Bahai a top 2 religion? I find it odd that you chose an Abrahamic Theistic religion over the 3 Non-Theistic religions of the world.

What about it stands out above the others?

If Freedo thinks every religion is trash, then Bahai is a garbage dump because its a combination of all the religions he hates.

That'd be it. Peace, unity. I never said I liked it though. My exact words were "the least smelly things in the shiit hole." It would accompanied by Buddhism as well, by the way.

I like how it finds a way of combing religions without making them contradictory.

Well in reality many religions want peace, but of course that's never accomplished. Also, Baha'ism doesn't really combine all faiths, more so just recognizes each as another revelation from a single God.

Peace is the last thing on most religion's agendas.

Actually you said UU and Bahai were the top 2.

I like how it finds a way of combing religions without making them contradictory.

Actually it just pretends to and it fails. The central tenets of each religion clearly contradict eachother, so Bahai says "oh, actually all the religious figures are messengers or prophets of the same God" without backing up that claim (because they can't, its so blatantly false).

I don't get why you would pick a God-based religion as opposed to the Atheist religions like Jainism, Buddhism, and Taoism.

I know, Buddhism would be number three.

Probably because if I was a bahai I would be obsessed with becoming the next messenger.

By the way, even though I stand by my statement I'm not very firm in it, since it means very little to me.

Really, if I were to ever become religious again(near inconceivable) I would just make up my own.

DDO really needs to have an Anti-theist option, lol.

The Bahai' religion is extremely erroneous. It has basis on contradictions that are as clear as the sun.

The sun's not very clear, it's rather opaque. Last I checked, one cannot see through the sun. Crystal is clear.

Most of my errors here are typos, especially due to a Bosnian keyboard here and delay due to proxy servers when I type. I can point out far more errors on your side than you can on mine, but I will not waste my time.

Actually, you make way more errors in logic than you do typos! As far as comparing...there is no comparing: you are a lying, deceitful, little pr!ck and I am a decent human being.

OK. I think it is all clear.

and I am a decent human being.
I believe I agree, and that is an unfortunate fact.

I did not stop responding. I have to pay to use a computer, and I have little interest in paying just for the sake of replying to your insults and other such things. It is not I who walks away.

I'll admit. That comeback was actually funny.
