I have contributed many comments on the post; some of them have already been published in my blog “paarsurrey” together with the comments of those who have commented on my comments; yet more are given below for the benefit of the viewers of this blog:

paarsurrey @ Dan Wilkinson:

@ Dan Wilkinson; he says in the main article, and I quote from him:

“They’re leaving the church because by essentially demonizing everyone who doesn’t agree with you, you’ve made believing in Young Earth Creationism* more important than Jesus’ explicit commandment to love God and neighbor.” and the sign (*) has been elaborated in the end:

“*The belief, born of a literal interpretation of the creation narrative in Genesis, that God created the world in six 24-hour days only 6,000 years ago.”

Here Quran comes to the rescue of Bible:

[32:6] He will plan the Divine Ordinance from the heaven unto
the earth, then shall it go up to Him in a day the duration of which is a
thousand years according to what you reckon.

[70:5] The angels and the Spirit ascend to Him in a day the measure
of which is fifty thousand years.

A day is a period; its duration would change as the subject changes.

    I’ve been thinking about that lately. I think there are “best expressions” of just about all religions. These best expressions draw particular people to them, and provide a way of dealing with the world and developing ourselves and relating to others that differs from religion to religion but which seen on the whole will produce a varied and well-rounded society. The best expression of a Hellenic pagan will differ from that of a Muslim, and both will differ from that of a Christian. And that’s totally okay. We’re all doing the best we can and it’s great to live in a world where all these different faith traditions exist and can be freely chosen so each individual finds the path that is needed and best for that person.

    I think I must broadly agree to you approach.

    Gotcha. There is harmony that can be found amongst all those faith disciplines as they all do have things in common. They of course have significant differences as well. I think what you are trying to follow is a more universal approach to God, and I personally see no problems with that, as it can work quite well for people. It invites one to consider how others see things, where we can find common ground, and where we can learn better how to live together as brethren. We may view God from different lenses, but I agree with the idea of trying to be at peace with one another.

    Thanks for your universal approach. You get me right in broad terms.

    My opinion is that we should focus on the Core Teachings of Krishna, Buddha, Zoroaster, Moses, Socrates, Jesus only then we could understand the Truthful Religion- the Word Revealed and the truthful science- the Work of the One-True-God (Allah Yahweh Ahura Mazda Parmeshawara)

    The problem with the Torah, Bible and Qur’an, is their first premise, that gods can exist, has not been shown to be correct. They skip the next logical premise that gods do in fact exist, and go directly to naming these gods and then on to describing these gods needs and wants, all with no evidence at all.
    In other words, using scripture to define your gods, is circular.

    paarsurrey Mike De Fleuriot

    I believe in the One-True-God very naturally; like I believe in me and my mother and father. I am an ordinary man in the street; with no claim to piety or scholarship. I do have a right to live my life as others have theirs. It is quite natural and reasonable for me to continue believing as such till somebody convinces me otherwise with observations and evidences.

    If you have any evidences that the One-True-God does not exists; and that I and my mother and father never existed; you may like to present such evidences; yet under no compulsion from me.

    The One-True-God has different names in different language of the people; I don’t know all the names; one could freely complete the list; of the attributes of the personage are the same; then they all meant the same One-True-God (Allah Yahweh Ahura-Mazda Parmeshawara Ishawara).

    That name phrasing is familiar Paarsurrey. Is it Bahai?

    paarsurrey @ allegro63

    May be the Bahahi thinking is also like this; but I have not been acquainted with them.
    I am an Ahmadi peaceful Muslim; if you want to know about my faith. I am indebted to Mirza Ghulam 1835-1908- the Promised Messiah and Imam Mahdi, Krishna Buddha Zoroaster of our Era.

    Thanks and regards
