Please Separate Philosophy and Religion

    Philosophy and Religion aren't synonymous yet when going to the "Philosophy" and Religion select Category all the options available are religious. Also, not all Philosophy is Atheistic or Agnostic.

    It is quite clear that you need to either add more options under this subsection or just give philosophy its own category with subheading of Metaphysics, Epistemology, Human Nature, Ethics, Politics, and Aesthetics, and then go from there as well for possible other sub categories. If one actually has a more philosophical piece, or just wants to talk about philosophy overall,. None of these will really fit into any of the predefined categories. Thus it is nigh impossible to actually put that piece in an appropriate category in many instances leaving one looking for trying to figure out what category might be the best place to put such a piece.

    I guess you don't know.

    Religion is a specific philosophy.

    There's a reason why it says  Religion and Philosophy, which is about religious philosophies.

    Education and Science - Philosophy is another category by itself already.

    Ah, okay, well that is damn confusing to say the least, then perhaps they should rename that particular category as you stated Religious Philosophies or just remove the philosophy thing.

      I don't think it really matters.

    I think the OP has a valid request. Philosophy is a sub-category in the Education and Science forum. It should just be a Religious forum. The two categories are too broad and far apart to be one forum topic. And for those who use a forum filter, many have the Religion forum blocked. It probably wouldn't make a huge difference, but it might be nice to see more philosophical threads.

    Here is the Philosophy sub-category link-

      Shows just how much philosophy has died that it gets it own sub section under Science and Education. sad

        Yes, I noticed that there are hardly any threads started in that sub-category. It would be nice if it had it's own forum category. I think many forum readers don't dig too deep into the sub-categories.

          Well perhaps you had people like me who thought that when they saw Religion and Philosophy, that was the place to look for you know, actual Philosophy topics or to place them in that spot.

          I mean seriously, I would never have thought to look under Science and Education, because honestly that isn't where it really belongs. I mean you have Religion and Philosophy sitting right there as a main category.

    I agree with this Philosophy and Religion are to very different things in my eyes.  Religion is more of a basis of which people base there life off of which has set of documentation of there beliefs. Whilst Philosophy is more open to creative thinking and ideals of how we perceive reality and the world around us. These are very different. But that's my opinion just throwing it out there maybe we can see a separation of the two in the future.

    Peace
