Baha'i faith missing
26 April 2018 | by AshitechSee all my reviews

Special thanks for producing the program that presents your quest to find out how most religions describe "life after death", what different civilizations thought about the act of "creation", "devil" and other big questions of mankind. You have excitingly discussed topics from the perspective of different sciences and different religions (Buddhism, Hinduism, Judaism, Islam, ....), direction that fewer researcher really has (If we don't count fanatic researches that redirect the truth and do not have holistic approach) and especially in order to have authenticated result. Unfortunately absence of "Baha'i faith" and its practical visions those are related to puberty period of human civilization is obvious and questionable. Religion must conform to science and reason, otherwise, it is superstition and in return, the present scientific view is not always correct, neither is truth only limited to what science can explain. It is less than one month that I have found this special series but as you are using reasoning powers to understand the truths ,it is really attractive to me and I am impatiently waiting for releasing next season of this series including baha'i opinions included.
