    So what does society need to change about itself and its rule such that when the next manifestation of God or the divine comes, that religious history isn't repeated with people mocking, abusing, imprisoning, or even killing the manifestation of the divine?

    You are a manifestation of the divine. Or didn't you know that?

    If a society is fully able to recognize a messianic figure when it sees one, would it still need one?

    I think we have reached a high degree of religious tolerance that I doubt it can/will happen.

    I have heard talk in the past of there being forum gods like @Revoltingest , @PopeADope , etc. Maybe I've risen to that level :confused:

    I'm not for sure. If we move further right than we are now in America, well much further right, we will start accepting policy over truth.

    I'm not sure I take being made in God's image according to the Bible quite that literally, rather than metaphorically.

    Why? You didn't fall from the sky out of an alternate reality. Everything is sacred, including you.

    Apparently I have embarrassed you, which wasn't my intention. I was just pointing out everything is of the divine.

    I agree that everything is sacred, so much so that good energies and bad energies will sometimes fight each other to try to have that person's loyalty. In my opinion.

    But I still think I'm almost unworthy of even kissing someone like Bahaullah's ring, and I'm not even a Baha'i.

    I'm not embarrassed, don't worry. I wasn't even embarrassed responding to the "What are you wearing?" threads and questions RF used to have.

    Between the two there is harmony. You can't have one without the other. "What is the sound of one hand clapping?"

    Do you believe that spiritual enlightenment is achieved through the middle grounds?

    I believe we are where we need to be at any given time. I don't believe you can achieve enlightenment. You already are enlightened.

    I think you may like this poem by Kabir:
    Between the poles of the conscious and the unconscious, there has the mind made a swing:
    Thereon hang all beings and all worlds, and that swing never ceases its sway.
    Millions of beings are there: the sun and the moon in their courses are there:
    Millions of ages pass, and the swing goes on.
    All swing! the sky and the earth and the air and the water; and the Lord Himself taking form:
    And the sight of this has made Kabîr a servant
