If YOU had a say in a new "Holy Book".

Is there a god? What is the meaning of life?

As the Baha’i propose, the search for spiritual enlightenment or connection with God is a personal journey. Sometimes this journey is shared with others, but it should never be imposed on others. There are as many different interpretations and understandings of God as there are people on this planet. When someone tells me they know the truth regarding God and His Word, I know for sure they are full of $hit – whether they know it or not. Such a person has no place telling me or anyone what's immoral or not. They need to take a look inside to find what's missing.

My thoughts exactly.

There is 22 Major Organized religions and Christianity only makes up about 2.1 billion people and there is around 4,429,300,000 people registered in other organized religions. Everyone can't be right.

Don't knock on the door of thy neighbor to discuss religion.
You can't fix stupid........BUT you can dress them up and over pay them to teach your kids!
