    It has been very interesting watching what is happening in the world.

    People forget the recent past and are unaware of how the Message of Baha'u'llah has change the world. In the mid 1800's the Dynasties, Kings, Queens, Catholic Church and Ottoman Empire still had power.

    Baha'u'llah wrote to them and the world offering God's Kingdom on Earth. When it was rejected Baha'u'llah foretold what would happen and ever since it has been as Baha'u'llah has said it would be and is still unfolding.

    We have a lot to face Deeje, I wish you and all your JW community Well and happy.

    Regards Tony

    It is in each of us. I am sure you would know the concept, but just in a different frame of reference.

    So you expect no changes in such religious societies - like the effects of globalisation, effective communications (like mobile phones and the internet), increased education for all, and perhaps more freedoms for all too (which is not exactly plentiful in many countries where religions tend to dominate)? Not see any trends likely to happen as much as has happened in the countries where religions have declined - like lower birth rates tied to greater wealth, more freedoms expected, etc.? Expect them to be different types of human than any others?

    But that is not science, objective, rational in the strong sense and is without evidence, proof and what not. Even truth is not out there in the universe. The universe is without truth, just as it is meaningless and without purpose. Your psychology is showing.

    In effect your God is truth, evidence, rational, objective, science and all that. But that is a belief system, that only is good, if you believe in it.

    Why is it in us? Whom do we blame for it? What made your Allah create it? Do not try to defend what is indefensible.

    Perhaps on average by country. I'd say a little more but it depends on the country, there are still a few who's majority population are christian (catholic) but in general i feel europe has been breaking away from religion since the late 60s/70s

    I understand the feeling, but that is not truth nor a reasoned argument.

    You make zero sense. Probably because you are once again misrepresenting me.

    I don't "believe" in science.

    It already has been. Millenia after millenia.

    Whenever "faith" is invoked, disagreement surely follows.
    People within the same religion can't even agree on their "faith".

    Faith is gullibility.
    On faith, you an believe anything.

    There is no such disagreement when it comes to say gravity, plate tectonics, radiation, etc.
    The reason is simple. Those things are independendly verifiable and supported by well-established evidence and reason.

    If science where faith based, we'ld have thousands of "theories" of gravity, just like we have thousands of "theories" of gods.
