What is Your Favourite Thread?

Greetings all! I hope you are all doing well - This is seemingly random, but while I was at work I had thought of an interesting idea. I initially wasn't sure whether to post this in general or off topic, but I figured since the vast majority of threads are Baha'i related it would better suit the general section.

Out of all the threads you've seen, which is your favourite?

For me, though I didn't actually participate in it, it would be the thread "Prophetic Powers reflect Human Prides" by Walrus.
Link is here: Prophetic Powers reflect Human Prides

My reasoning behind this is that it brings up a point that I had never heard before: Prophets are raised in the fields their society values, and surpasses them all. I had never thought of this before and I found it infinitely fascinating. My one thought is: What was Jesus raised to? I asked my lovely friend Zachary who is a Jehovah's Witness, and he suggested it may have been simple teachings - As in, simplification of the complex rules of Judaism. I'm not entirely sold on this, however given how anal people were about following the Torah in the day, it makes sense to me considering that Jesus had given the Law of Christ which, is considerably less complex than the 613 Mitzvot/rules in the Old Testament

I don't know if I have a favorite thread, but I love all of Sen McGlinn's posts, as he's usually got a lot of interesting and informative research behind his posts.

I enjoyed the thread about the past prophecies about coming of Bahaullah. it was posted by InvestigateTheTruth. I also enjoyed all those threads in which a Muslim was trying to question us; I cannot remember his name, but those threads were exciting! :P
Also in general, I like almost all the threads, like this "Deepening on the Hidden words". I like to see new ideas.

I can not say I have any favorite thread, but I do love watching people find this site, post, and then watch the journey.

When we go back through our own past posts, we see that greater understanding is always needed.

Regards Tony

I like Sen, I appreciate His knowledge and can only strive to be as dedicated to the pursuit of knowledge as He is.

As to the rest of the situation, I guess over the years it has expanded to what it is, as so many have offered an opinion not knowing the details.

My position on this is I work on my own self and leave all that matter to Sen and the Universal House of Justice.

Sen will comment here if He sees it will benefit.

Regards Tony
