The fact that it exists at all would lead me to suspect that Guru whatshisface who set it up thought what came before was not right.

True, sort of, but it could be claimed that it's a bringing together of what's gone before too.

The Bahá'í teachings are often summarized by referring to three core principles: the unity of God, the unity of religion, and the unity of humankind.[3] Many Bahá'í beliefs and practices are rooted in these priorities; but taken alone these would be an over-simplification of Bahá'í teachings.
