Shoghi: The tablet of wisdom was revealed in Persian.
The tablet was revealed by Bahaullah in Arabic!

18. Bahaullah and Divine Knowledge: Revisions in the Divine Texts
Bahaullah revealed a Holy book, found out that it had multiple grammatical mistakes and discovered many errors in citing the verses of the Quran. He then proceeded to revise it, and gave out a second version, and then claimed "the latter is better and more appropriate"!

19. Bahaullah and Adhering to the Customs of the Previous People
In matters of sex, Bahaullah adhered to the customs of Muslims and took three wives. However he forbids this for everyone else. When citing the Quran, he put aside the custom of the Muslims in carefully citing the exact verses of the Quran and erroneously cites many verses in the book of Iqan.

20. Bahaullah and Citing Shia Narrations
Bahaullah forged many narrations and distorted many others to prove that the Bab was divine. He then labeled the Shia as being unmindful selfish shunners of truth because they did not believe in his forged and distorted narrations.

21. Abdul Baha and Citing Verses of the Quran
‘Abdul-Baha distorted dozens of verses from the Quran. He announced those who distort two letters from the verses of the Quran are leaders of those who are in hell and their followers are lowly flies.

25. Is Quoting the Words of Others a Sign of Not Having Divine Knowledge?
Bahaullah: "I mislike the copious citation from sayings of the past; for quotation from the words of others proveth acquired learning, not the divine bestowal."
Ponder on these questions:

  • Why would Bahaullah and Abdul Baha cite hundreds of lines of poetry in their writings without acknowledging the original composers?
  • Why would Bahaullah quote verbatim many wrong passages about philosophers from Muslim historians in the Tablet of Wisdom whilst claiming the tablet is a divine revelation from God?
  • Why would Bahaullah and Abdul Baha refer countless times to the sayings of the learned men, scientists, and what has been written in the books?
  • Why would Bahaullah refer to books to gain knowledge.

Bahaullah: My followers kiss the hands of those who intend to kill them.

28. When and Where to Bury the Dead

Physics: Both convex and concave mirrors focus light in a real point that creates great heat!

The Earth’s age (world’s age) is several thousand years!
All minerals possess a spirit and life.

Chemistry: Plants survive on a watery element called carbon and hydrogen that comes from the mouth of animals!

The Sun is Stationary, Fixed, and Ever Occupies the Same Space!
All stars have planets and all these planets have countless aliens on them!
All stars have aliens living on them!

Humanitarianism: The more oppressed that you are the better. Do not protest to oppressors. Self-victimize yourself by not defending yourself! Baha’is kiss the hand of those who want to kill them!

Human rights: Confiscating peoples’ property and banishing them based on religious matters are more dear than everything that is in the Skies and earth!

Psychology: The communities must not shun the citizens for it has a demoralizing effect and will cause perversion of character; but we will shun people!

Dentistry: Humans have canine teeth to break nuts with!

Geography: Christopher Columbus discovered America using his reason!

The Pupil of the Eye is Black to Attract the Rays of the Sun!
The Pupil of the Eye is the Source of Light!

Abdul Baha claims God says in the Qur’an that everything is living! God says "We made from water everything living."
Father and son distort multiple verses from the Quran when citing them.
Bahaullah claims he is the creator of multiple Gods.

Science: Materialists believe that all things have a spirit and life!

Deductive reasoning: Since roosters are superior to hens then there is no doubt that males are superior to females and stronger. Since lioness’ are fiercer thus females are stronger and more important than males!
