Can You Identity Any Bahai Conspiracy Theories?

Recommended Posts

(salam)

I am currently researching about any Bahai conspiracy theories and so is it possible whether you can list any theories to do with Bahais as people or their faith/beliefs in general?

Its doesn't matter if the theories are close to wrong, right or whether they are still under debate, but just list any that you can come up with. Please do list the books, websites or any sources where the said conspiracy theories are mentioned. I am not here to debate any of the theories, just please list as many as you know and please also try to give any evidences/truths of the specific theory.

Please note I am not here to criticise or justify anything to with the modern-day "prosecutions" of Bahais or put forward any "wrong doings" of the current Iranian regime. 

Inshallah you can help me with my research.

Bahais attract converts through allowing immoral acts with Bahai women and girls

Example: https://sensday.wordpress.com/2014/09/16/help-bahais-are-taking-over-the-gardens/
"

Quote
September 16, 2014. The latest story in Iran’s government-approved media is that Bahais are up to no good in an extensive park on the Western outskirts of Tehran, on the road to Kharaj, known as the Vardavard gardens. A google search at 17.30 GMT today found 408 media sites expressing their concern at Bahai activities in the area, in identical words. The stories have two different titles: “The Vardavard gardens are a safe place for immoral Bahai activities” [example] and “A place for having sex with girls, on condition of becoming a Bahai.” [example]. ...

Quote

February 19, 2014

Ahmad Salek, chairman of Iran’s parliamentary cultural commission, on Tuesday accused his country’s Baha’i community of spying for Israel and the United States. “I declare very explicitly that Baha’ism is an espionage organization which gathers intelligence for the CIA and Mossad, and there are abundant documents to prove this,” the Fars news agency quoted Salek saying.

Bahais fund the Israeli armed forces:

Iranian Taboo (facebook), August 21, 2012...

Advertisements in Tehran's subway recently have depicted the shrine of the Bab in Haifa, along with a text stating “Only a few days after the UN officially recognized formation of the usurping State of Israel, in turn Israel recognized Bahaism as an official religion, and the Bahais established  their own House of Justice. And as a payback the Baha’is raised funds dedicated to the aid of Israel, in such wise that in 1356 [solar A.H.], they were able to raise 120 Milliom Tumans [at that time, before inflation, 7 Tumans =$1.00]. Through the effort of Habib Sabit, this sum of money was then channeled to the Israeli armed forces.”

the "blood libel" (human sacrifice) story applied to Bahais

example:

https://sensday.wordpress.com/2010/05/25/blood-libel-qom/
May 25, 2010

Quote
"...the Bahais in the holy city of Qom, on the holy evening of Ashura when Shiah Muslims mourn the martyrdom of Imam Husayn, held a loud festivity where alcohol was served, killed a Muslim boy they had kidnapped, and laid his body on the table with the food and drink.

Bahais practice incest

Example:

http://www.bahaiawareness.com/shariat.html
July 1988
 

Quote
it is permitted for the Bahais to marry their sisters, nieces, aunts, etc, even though they may be blood relatives.

and in the "comment" to the same article:

Quote

yes bahais must be killed as they are FITNA by the devil -- they marry there real sisters and indulge in homosexuality -- they are unclean, unholy disciples of SATAN

 

another example:

Quote
I knew this person back in under graduate years who was Bahaii.
Even though, at the first glance he looked normal, but when I talked with
him a little bit, he told me that in Bahii religion it is encouraged to
marry between sister and brother, father and daughter, or mother and
son!  I got shocked.

The Bahai Faith is the religion of the United Nations

Example:
https://merahza.wordpress.com/2009/04/10/bahai-the-new-world-religion-of-the-nwo/

Quote
The Bahá’í Faith’s reach and influence is worldwide. Their leaders have contributed to the birth of the UN and take part in every conference related to global governance and initiatives such as the drafting of Agenda 21 and the Earth Charter. It is well recognized that the Bahá’í Faith is, for all intents and purposes, the religion of the UN. With one of their offices located in the UN headquarters, Bahá’ís have influenced and converted many international politicians to the teachings of Bahá’u’lláh.

Bahai was made up by a Russian diplomat, Dolgorukov, who told the whole story in his memoirs (which he wrote in Persian!)

Bahai was made up by the "illuminati" and is promoted by the United Nations:

Example:

http://www.nwotoday.com/the-new-world-orders-history/the-new-age-occult-and-secret-societies/the-baha-i-faith-and-the-un

============
Similar to that:

Quote
core beliefs (or the 13 commandments?) of the Bahá'í Faith are

Unity of God
Unity of religion
Unity of humankind
Equality between men and women
Elimination of all forms of prejudice
World peace
Harmony of religion and science
Independent investigation of truth
Universal compulsory education
Universal auxiliary language
Obedience to government and non-involvement in partisan politics
Elimination of extremes of wealth and poverty

and people wonder why our society is being pushed in a certain direction well there is a conspiracy and it is hiding in plain site for all to see .

it may not be as exciting as moon spaceships or shape changing lizard royals but i can assure you one world government and religion is very much the plan and our future unless people really do wake up to the shepherds of society.

Bahai is promoted by the freemasons:

One of the conspiracy theories that comes up in the Iranian media is that Bahai is behind the BBC and the Manoto Persian-language TV services.

On the Manoto story, I found this in English:
http://iranianfacebook.com/2012/06/03/bahais-hide-behind-iranian-culture-and-use-sexual-innuendo-to-entice-people-into-their-cult/

on the claim that Bahais run the BBC, I only found material in Persian:

Bahais practice incest

This is not a conspiracy theory. Baha'is are allowed to perform some forms of incest. It is a well known fact and even allowed by the Baha'i cult Universal House of Justice:

"The Universal House of Justice has instructed us to acknowledge your letter of 15 December 1980 in which you ask what prohibitions, in addition to the one on marrying one's step-mother, there may be restricting marriage between relatives, and to say that the House of Justice has not as yet seen fit to make regulations on the subject of marriage with one's kindred. For the present, therefore, decisions are left to the consciences of the individual Bahá'ís who must, of course, obey the civil law. Consideration must also be given to the prevailing customs and traditions in each country so that any action in this respect will not reflect upon the Faith in an adverse way."(From a letter written on behalf of the Universal House of Justice to a National Spiritual Assembly, January 15, 1981, in Lights of Guidance, no. 1289)

Hadez803: people who suffer from conspiracy thinking do not say to themselves, "I believe a lot of rubbish for no good reason." They actually think it is a fact that reptilian lizards rule the world, or the illuminati are planning to invade Texas, or chemtrails are poisoning the atmosphere. It simply does not occur to them to look for real factual evidence, or think what form that evidence would take. 

Take the "bahais practice incest" theory, as an example. What kind of evidence would subtstantiate that? You could look for an example, and say Bahai X married his sister Y on such and such a day, in such and such a place. That would be factual evidence of a sort -- and note that you did not provide it. But it would be "anecdotal evidence" (links to the wikipedia article). It is not possible to justify a generalisation, such as "bahais practice incest" from one example, or even from ten.  To substantiate a generalisation, one needs general population data. If it were true that Bahais practice incest, this would show in the Bahai population. There would be mongoloid features and other signs of inbreeding , such as a shorter life expectancy and lower intelligence.  There have been Bahais in Iran for 6 generations now, and they are indistinguishable from the general population in appearance, and their children are so intelligent that the government has to exclude them from universities to give the rest of the population an even chance. [Joke].  

The interesting thing here, for Zendegi's research, is that you not only did not provide any evidence for what you call a "well known fact," you did not even think to try.   This is characteristic of the conspiracy thinking mentality. Conspiracy thinkers are not less intelligent, it seems rather that some vital part of their thinking processes has not switched on.  Normal people check received reports against a generalised picture of how the world works based on their own experience, and against solid data. Conspiracy thinkers are able to maintain a picture of how the world secretly works which is at odds with their own experience of the world. For example, they may think that reptilians rule the world, while they have never met a reptilian and have experience with how power is actually exercised in the world.

There is a recognized class of conspiracy thinking that projects "sexual freedom" to the conspiracist's target group. Hofstadter has also noted that "very often the fantasies of true believers [in conspiracies] reveal strong sadomasochistic outlets, vividly expressed."  The example I quoted many posts previously, in which a commenter wrote "bahais must be killed as they are FITNA by the devil -- they marry there real sisters and indulge in homosexuality -- they are unclean, unholy disciples of SATAN" fits this type.

Another characteristic of a conspiracy theory is that it uncovers a hidden threat (in this case, the threat to Iranian 'purity' by the unclean (najes) Bahais) and divides the world into good and bad. 

The letter you quote says that Bahais must observe the civil law, and also the prevailing customs and traditions of the countries in which they live.  To use this as evidence that "Bahais practice incest" gives us an interesting window into your thinking.
