Baha'i Beliefs - God, Religion, Human Beings

But English is always changing as all languages do. It could, over a century or so, eliminate all sexist words and all silent letters, couldn't it?
1) What sexist words?

2) Don't Baha'i pride themselves in the good things with Homo?
One good thing with Homo is its ability to make things happen, not sit around and wait for evolution.
So why wait?
Why not go modify the English language according the Baha'i model?


I myself am engineering a fully functional language, and while I speak only Swedish and English fluently (barely, I have some focus and speaking issues due to mental ailments), I possess a taste for languages in terms of essence and composition.


To create a new language from scratch is an insane amount of work and not recommended, it would not be logical because it would need people learn yet another language.

No matter how much you try, it will be impossible for everyone to speak the same language anyway.

If you go for an audible language, deaf will not understand you.
If you go for sign language, blind and amputees will have issues.

Are there projects that one could join to help in the world? i am retired from construction and would gladly spend my retirement time helping to build basic housing if there are any projects that need long term volunteers.
I am presently in the Dominican Republic and have social security from the USA to feed myself, but am still physically fit to work. I doubt I could lay blocks all day like I did 30 years ago, but plumbing and electrical or other jobs. I have been idle too long. I am just getting familiar with Baha'i. I visited the Baha'i temple in Panama City Panama about 10 years ago, and am deeply into studying this site and Ron Price's writings. Nor do I know if I will be able to follow this site back to this thread. SO am asking any one if they have volunteer projects long term to write to me at derfish@live.com. Any where in the world, but I would prefer where Spanish, English or Portuguese are spoken.

One of my daughters is getting quite involved with an outfit called "Build On". Its not a Baha'i organization, but Tahireh tells me there are a number of Baha'i youth involved.

I'm actually going to go to a fund-raiser tomorrow that she invited "her Daddy" to, and check it out further. She is wanting to go to Africa to help build a school, or schools.


We don't always have to reinvent the wheel, but we need to check it out to see if its round and in balance. I don't mind working with organizations that I have confidence in, but there is a real need to scrutinize them nowadays.

You could apply for Service at the World Center in Haifa. They always need ex tradies.

There is also a small allowance paid to assist with the living costs.

There are Baha'i schools and development projects in various parts of the world, which may need volunteer help. I served at one in the Brazillian Amazon back in the 1980s (when I was in my 20s). I lived there for 4 years and am fluent in Portuguese and Spanish. That is one of the projects listed here:
https://www.monafoundation.org/
There is also a few projects in Haiti, and Panama (in Chiriqui, serving Indigenous population). Some might need temporary construction help if they are building additions, etc.

I think it is quite a blessing to be in the position you are in, I plan on retiring overseas myself, or maybe just ditching the job and moving sooner.
Any way, it is very noble that you would like to serve others.

Good morning SmilingSkeptic

A little after leaving after the post above, I realised that something I said could so easily be taken the wrong way.



I'm deadly serious. No joking, nothing else. Just serious. You would wish for physical proof. If it were to be God's Will that He would provide physical proof, this could be just one of a multitude of options and possibilites. But the only eyes that would see it would be your own.

No one can no one tell the future, no one can foretell the Will of God

With warm greetings

I think the universal language is one of or all of the various programming languages used for software/computers - I'm able to collaborate with people from all parts of the world using them (from languages as different as Japanese and English etc.).

Or, extrapolating on what was on the reddit.com homepage today (scientists determining a possibility to encode data for up to 2 million years on DNA strands) maybe it's DNA (and we already can communicate universally with it via reproduction, after all, sans disabilities, all humans are compatible with each other for passing on this data or 'language').

Perhaps the two points will eventually meet and intertwine (electronic based DNA/programming languages and biological).

Welcome Blub. Interesting thought.

The Universal language is so we mear mortals can communicate no matter where we go.

God bless and regards Tony
