All the Revealed religions and the persons, messenger and prophets, on whom these religions were revealed by the Creator God were truthful persons. They all were peaceful and tolerant people and always presented their points of view with brilliant reasons and rational arguments.
Buddha, Krishna, Zoroaster, Moses, Jesus and Muhammad; all were truthful, peaceful and tolerant persons.
It is a fact that Islam is the most peaceful religion in the world as it respects all the truthful persons like Buddha, Krishna, Zoroaster, Moses, Jesus.
Quran the first and the foremost source of guidance for Muslims, whatever the denomination, has no teachings which are not peaceful.
With the advent of Mirza Ghulam Ahmad- the Promised Messiah, this peaceful aspect has been highlighted.
IMO it's Taoism which speaks about the reality that naturally exists prior to and gives rise to all other things. Virtue or the life energy in all things and a sense of morality which constitutes the Way can be found by experiencing the oneness of all things - fulfilling life as one with nature and as one with the inner self. Instead of becoming one with heaven, the goal is to become one with the nature of the universe.
Paars - I don't really know that they discount the One. It talks about the ancient beginning and formlessness and nothingness. But I haven't read their sacred books (Tao Te Ching) enough to be able to find and quote Lao Tzu (Lao Tsu) or Shen Tao.
Some of the most NONpeaceful place in the world today are either majority Muslim, run by Muslim leaders, or in the biggest Muslim region of the planet, the Middle East. You all claim peace, but all you live out is conflict.
You also debunk the Bible, the Apostles and Christians as being based on lies, and misinformation, and then you call them all truthful here.
Make up your mind!
Either they are TRUTHFUL, or LIERS. But, at least be consistent.
I never said they lied; I cannot pronounce them truthful where they erred; after all they were sinful and not innocent people and they acted against the beliefs of innocent Jesus; that aspect should be and need be exposed.
How can Islam be the most peaceful religion, when they talk about killing infidels? Buddhism preaches acceptance and peace. True Buddhists don't believe in killing any living creature. Sounds a lot more peaceful to me. Even Rastafarians are more peaceful than Islam. They also preach peace and the sanctity of all life. True Rastafarians are vegetarians.
I agree that all revealed religions are peaceful; so is Islam and Buddhism.
Yet (unfortunately) Buddhism has not always separated itself from war. There is historic documentation that in 621 CE monks from the Shaolin Temple of China fought in a battle that helped establish the Tang Dynasty. In centuries past, the heads of Tibetan Buddhist schools formed strategic alliances with Mongol warlords and reaped benefits from the warlords' victories.
The links between Zen Buddhism and samurai warrior culture were partly responsible for the shocking collusion of Zen and Japanese militarism in the 1930s and 1940s. For several years a virulent jingoism seized Japanese Zen, and teachings were twisted and corrupted to excuse killing. Zen institutions not only supported Japanese military aggression but raised money to manufacture war planes and weapons.

Your first statement should probably be a definition of Islam: is it what the terrorists, using religion for an excuse for jihad, worship or is it what the more peaceful people worship. Or somewhere in between?
