    My husband just came across this in a book he was reading and I felt the need to share it with everyone! :D For, great and marvellous as have been the achievements of the past, the glory of the golden age of the Cause, whose promise lies embedded within the shell of Bahá’u’lláh’s immortal...

    Taxation, Donations, and the Future World Order

    The main difference between a tax and a donation is that a tax is gathered through the use of force, while a donation gathered through the use of persuasion. To get a tax, the State does not really need to appeal to your mind or heart. Whether you are persuaded or not, it will confiscate your...

    Are there more Baha'i scriptures that discuss the future of Iran? "A thousand years must elapse before Persia can, by the aid of material power, rise to the height of the peoples and governments of Europe.

    Social, Economic and Political future of the world

    As this subject is being discussed in another thread I thought I should share my view. This is solely my view and not that of the Baha'i Faith. Aside from a lack of spirituality in the world, the economic prosperity of all the nations and their people is a fundamental problem that has been and...

    Warp Speed and Time Travel to Past and Future might now be possible!

    ...Well, within the realms of possibility - not obviously in this decade but certainly in the future! I can't quite comprehend myself the ramifications of this scientific discovery. It is confirmed by subsequent tests (Ie if they also receive positive results) then the world of physics has...

    Future Manifestations under the "shadow of Baha'u'llah"?

    I have sometimes read Baha'is say that future Manifestations will be under the "shadow of Baha'u'llah", what does this mean? In 1,000 years time will the next Manifestation of God not abrogate the laws and religion of the former, like old wine being poured into new wineskins just as Jesus did...

    The future of the religion

    Baha'u'llah said there will be a new Manifestation of God in 1000 years. Will there be a new religion? Will Baha'u'llah's teaching about unity of religion, equality of men and women, etc..still exist? If there is a new religion, will it have a new name? Or will it always be BAHAI, since the...
