    Bahais believe in God of Abraham. They believe God of abraham is the universal God. And that God has no spesific religion.

    I agree with this,

    Do you agree or disagree?

    Do Baha'is believe Odin is the God of Abraham? Or Xenu?

    Of course I agree because I am a Baha'i. :)
    I am a Baha'i mostly because the teachings make logical sense to me.

    I'm not sure, but I lean towards disagreeing because of how I understand religion. Religion is about who you are (how you answer life's big questions), what communities you belong to, and what you do. I don't really care so much about the boxes and labels organized religion imposes on all that and look at what religion is really doing in a person's life. If the one-god is part of your way of life, that is a fairly defining aspect of your way of life (aka, your religion). The one-god may be loosely "universal" in some sense for monotheists, but it pretty much excludes people like me entirely. Plus as a non-monotheist it doesn't seem like the worshipers of the one-god really agree on its nature so to me as a polytheist it looks like they're worshiping different gods entirely.

    If it makes you feel any better, I believe you are tapping into the same spiritual energy when you pray to your gods as every monotheist is when they pray to their God. But not every monotheist thinks this way apparently.

    I don't agree. As humans don't own natural history of the reason of created creation. It's owned creation is a non speaking history non naming.

    I agree a human being man however told God stories as a human and as a man. Said he was speaking as two voiced terms. Himself.

    Ra in human terms was the sun god. One God a sun is exact as the sun...not any man. Therefore I don't believe the human man's scientific thesis.

    As in man's life there isn't science first.

    Nah, that way of thinking tends to ruffle the feathers more than anything. I get that it's an attempt at being less exclusivist and more inclusivist, but in the process it's erasing very real and significant differences in theologies and religious experiences. Not so much a fan of that. Having experienced a fairly wide variety of gods/spirits, they really were not the same "spiritual energy" to me. Suggesting they are is on par with suggesting when you talk to two different humans, they've somehow got the same personality or something beneath it all. Eh, nah, that just doesn't reflect how I experience reality but if others have that "oneness" feeling no matter what they interact with in life? Follow that and let experience guide.

    A Baha'i will offer that God is Unconstrained.

    There is only one God, and He is the God of all religions. I dare say He was even the God of the Vikings, even if they called called Him Odin. I don't know about how other Baha'is see Odin.;)

    Depends on the Baha'i. I do. There is only one God, and what we call Him doesn't matter.
