  • Coexist has do with all religions and faiths existing peace. It does not mean that the people who say this believe in God. It simply means that they wish for harmony amongst diversity.

  • I agree with the anon and also that to me it says that peace is possible - "coexist" is a verb, it's a *choice* we make to live together in peace and harmony, embracing diversity rather than trying to eradicate it. It doesn't mean that we agree, but that we respect other beliefs and paths and accept their existence in this world alongside our own beliefs.

  • I think it means that we can all embrace each other and all that we believe, and still respect each other. We can all find a common ground, even among our most sacred beliefs....if we just took the time to do so.

  • Well, I really don't have anything to add here. But really it represents all people of all faiths living together as humans and not by being defined by their religions first.

  • To me it means be happy and peaceful with all of our brothers and sisters...We are all here for the same cause, so why fight with people over nothing?
