The Bahá’í teachings emphasize that all of us are part of one human family. That women and men have been and will always be equal in the sight of God. That there is only one human race: prejudice — whether based on race, ethnicity, nationality, religion, or social background — must be overcome if humanity is to create a peaceful and just global society. That we must to acquire knowledge with our own eyes and not through the eyes of others. That science and religion are in harmony.
