A serious question

What is the deal with the Bahi faith?
It appears to be one of the more rational ones
Our 16 year old son is getting interested
Him who declined to buy into the Presbyterian faith.

A new age melding of various principles and ideals loosely based around a faith based spiritual belief.

Over here it does not appear to be a 'brainwashing' cult or anything, they appear quite harmless and not fundamentalist in any way.

I have previously worked with someone 'into' Baha'i and they were OK.

From Wiki it seems to be a mixture of all religions but it seems to be like most, all waiting on the next messenger.........

The Bahá'Ă* Faith is a religion founded by Bahá'u'lláh in nineteenth-century Persia, emphasizing the spiritual unity of all humankind.[1] There are an estimated five to six million Bahá'Ă*s around the world in more than 200 countries and territories.[2][3]

Bahá'Ă* teachings emphasize the underlying unity of the major world religions. Religious history is seen to have unfolded through a series of divine messengers, each of whom established a religion that was suited to the needs of the time and the capacity of the people. These messengers have included Abraham, the Buddha, Jesus, Muhammad and others, including most recently Bahá'u'lláh. In Bahá'Ă* belief, each messenger taught of the next, and Bahá'u'lláh's life and teachings fulfill the end-time promises of previous scriptures. Humanity is understood to be involved in a process of collective evolution, and the need of the present time is for the gradual establishment of peace, justice and unity on a global scale.[4]

The word "Bahá'Ă*" (/bæhɒːʔiː/, /bəˈhai/, Persian: بهائی) is used either as an adjective to refer to the Bahá'Ă* Faith or as a term for a follower of Bahá'u'lláh, and the word is not a noun meaning the religion as a whole. It is derived from the Arabic Bahá’, meaning "glory" or "splendour".[5] The term "Bahaism" (or "Baha'ism") has been used in the past but is fading from use.

I do recall a few oh God's from time to time. But I don't think it was from a religous point of view.

Strangly even though there appear to be some "hot chicks" ( am I showing my age there ?) in the Bahai local community ( and at least one MILF ) young M has a girlfriend who is not of the Bahai faith, nor any other that I am aware of.
Thank you for your helpful / reassuring answers
All I had been able to find was the official website which I did not entirely trust, cynic that I am.

Your so fucking thick it's hilarious, my 5 year old is smarter than you, at least he know the Arabic tails and fables unlike you, and he can spell Borat unlike you.
Dome of rock give you any hints oh retarded one.
And a man in a dress is not an uncommon sight!, and you should know you look at the one you married every day.
Jay and I do have common ground, we both own Mercedes!
Your little more than a Oxygen thief Jerkyboy.
