    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.

        But Laozi did believe in an underlying Tao, Way or One, from which the Heaven and Earth derived. This One transfused everything in the universe from the lowest to the highest.

        Maybe Taoism in its present form is not vocal in saying that Laozi believed in the Creator God but I think he believed in ONE.

        Can you please quote from Laozi that he denied ONE.

          Atheism is the One True Peaceful and Truthful Religion.

          This is revealed to Us as Truth.

          This is the only reasonable rational Truth.

          Anyone who argues is a skeptical cynical who believes in having sex with little girls as Mohamed did.

          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. hmm hmm hmm

      Make up your mind!

      Either they are TRUTHFUL, or LIERS. But, at least be consistent. sad sad sad

        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.

          Stand up and be counted. Either truthful or liars.

    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.

      Please quote from Quran, the first and the foremost source of Islam whatever the denomination, with the verses in context to prove your viewpoint that Islam commnads to kill infidels in general terms.

      Islam does believes in co-existence and tolerance more than any other religion.

          Islam does not command to kill the Jews generally.

            Perhaps not generally, but what about occasionally?

        That has been done already and you have flatly ignored it. How many times do we need to quote the same verses over and over again until you respond accordingly?

      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.

      Every human being should be peaceful.

      To be vegetarian does not make one necessaritly peaceful.

        If you want peace you need to talk to your fellow Muslims Paar. You're preaching to the converted here sunbeam.
