1. Kindness - Science Agrees with Religion
Kindness is a virtue common to many religious and philosophical teaching. Now it has scientific support for not only individual health, but also--Bahá'ís say-- for developing a healthy and peaceful world.

2. Bahá'í Democracy
One of the most exciting aspects of the Bahá'í Faith is never more obvious than during an election year in the United States. Without clergy, administering to millions of adherents must be handled by elected bodies--called Assemblies--on the local, regional, national and international levels.

3. What Bahá'ís Think is God's Greatest Gift
What does the Bahá'í Faith say makes man different from animals, and can humanity use this gift to ameliorate the rampant materialism currently destroying individual happiness, economic stability, and social progress?

4. Midsummer Noon - Drama Review
"Midsummer Noon: A Narrative of the Life of the Báb," Who is revered by Bahá'ís as a Prophet in His own right, as well as the Forerunner of Bahá'u'lláh, the Prophet/Founder of the Bahá'í Faith.

5. You Are What You Think
Learning and repeated experiences actually alter the physical structure of the brain, creating new neuronal pathways. Religion has built upon this truth for millennia. The Bahá'í Faith takes it a step further into the 21st Century and beyond.

6. True Religion Isn't About Labels
The Bahá'í Faith doesn't discriminate among titles and Names. The definition of true religion taught by Bahá'u'lláh, its Prophet/Founder, is that all religion has the same root.

7. Does the Bahá'í Faith Have Dress Codes ?
Most religions use the manner of dress as a way to express both respect and piety, although over time, traditions can become extreme. The Bahá'í Faith does not specify dress for either men or women, except to caution against immoderation.

8. Bahá'í Administration
Part 1 of a two-part series on community administration lays out the map of Bahá'í local, national and international institutions, with brief descriptions. Part 2 is on the Bahá'í electoral process.

9. Bahá'í Elections
A brief description of the electoral process utilized within the Bahá'í community whose administration is handled by elected councils on the local, regional and international levels. This is grass roots democracy, worldwide.

10. Do Bahá'ís Believe in Exorcism ?
I don't want to believe anything could force me to sin. But neither do I want to think I'm inherently capable of evil. Perhaps, believing "The Devil made me do it!" is a less shocking explanation. Bahá'ís, however, take a different perspective.
