Which Religions Do You Understand the Most?

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.

What is it you don't understand?
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.

I honestly probably know more about the Baha'i Faith than most Baha'is themselves, which is honestly one of the reasons why I left that religion. Most people don't fully understand the inconsistencies that Baha'u'llah left, such as knowing an unknowable God and those implications. It seems the people who are best at arguing against a religion are those who used to be a member of them.

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

Thank you.
