    I do not even know what passive aggressive is. :)

    I see translation is a difficult task, but in the end I see the meaning is for us to grasp.

    I Am what I Am or I will Be what I will Be to me is saying the same thing.

    As we have no concept of an Unknowable G_d, how is it that we even mention God or attribute attributes to G_d?

    To me that becomes know in the statement that I am what I am, or I will be what I will be, as that is how G_d becomes known to us.

    This is a big topic, there is a lot written on this in the Baha'i Writings.

    I am wiling to discuss, but as you can see, the discussion would go beyond defined meanings that past faiths may hold to.

    To such responses, I am happy to offer a person does not have to visit this thread and add to the discussion. There is no ill feeling and no ill intent. I am happy for them to see it as they choose to do.

    Regards Tony

    Duly noted, no light hearted banter with Tony...got it.

    So, Tony....does G-d have a sense of humor?

    Why sad to see?

    The nature of discussion ia that 'hopefully' participants enjoy the conversation and a little humor breaks the tension. We are not a debate team nor a bunch of doctoral fellows holding onto specific rules of order...our charge here is to simply maintain a level of decorum slightly above that of 3rd grade bodily function descriptions... Inuendo fits that bill...further outuendo on the other hand.

    Are bahai always so serious?

    I am...likely to interject humor....and make another platypus

    I removed two of my own posts because they were off topic and irrelevant
