    I think I understand my particular sampradaya of Hinduism fairly well. But that's where it ends. My definition of understanding goes way beyond the intellect, and delves into a subconscious mind that never thinks about it, much like 'knowing' how to drive a car. I most certainly don't understand Abrahamic faiths. They make no sense to me at all.

    Lots of things ... the need for a prophet, extreme duality (good/bad), a 'loving' god that has wrath, fixture on a book, eating the flesh of others, burial, male superiority, ... the list could go on.

    Don't get me wrong though. I do accept that other people have their personal reasons to believe in all that, and I respect their choice or drive to do so.

    Do you not experience pleasure and pain?
    Do you not see the need for courts of law?

    Hmm. You are not looking to argue, but just make some insulting and arbitrary comments about another persons faith or their God, but not to argue.

    Nice work.

    Out of curiosity, what do you mean by "knowing a God who is unknowable" and where did Bahaullah write about that?

    Thank you.
