Why are there so many questions here concerning Christian(or belief in God) vs Atheism?


Is this the best platform for discussing these issues and are people really interested in the answers, or is religion vs non-religion just a controversial topic that will attract lots of debate and generate money from ads?

    I'm glad I asked the question as it has prompted wonderful answers like this MizB. I too can take the middle ground on this matter and feel it is something people should be able to debate civilly as there is a place for everyone in society. Thanks.

    I guess we all need something to believe in Kathleen, whether it is a deity or something else entirely. I guess if you think you have found it then it is your duty to share. If you are lost I suppose you will seek those answers.

    Thank you for a wonderfully detailed explanation Kylyssa. I guess Q & A is a safe and relevant place to discuss such things especially if the intended purpose is to generate ideas for hubs.

    I am glad that I asked this question as it is attracting very intelligent and interesting answers such as this Val. It is always good to try and understand why others think the way they do, even if you may not agree.

    Nice answer Lori. I very rarely debate the subject either, as I find it often becomes heated and no side ever changes their way of thinking.

    I wonder if it's the same people over and over. To me it's a temporary thing. I couldn't care less for those pennies, for intellectual fights, or proving anything to anybody. Just curious - before I leave it altogether, and focus on my hubs again

    Oh I agree Catherine. There is certainly a problem with the selection of the stuff that appears on the front page. Whether it is "most popular", "best" or "newest" they need to be moderated so what appears is not poor quality or controversial.

    On the contrary Besarien, this was a very satisfying answer. I am also a Christian and believer but I feel there is a place for all views and religions. As you say it would be a boring world if everyone believed the same and there was no debate.

    As long as everyone can respect the opinion of others it's all good Ralph. Passion (one way or the other) sometimes causes friction though.

    You make some very good points Eric, and it was the type of educated and truthful answer I was looking for. If we would look back through the questions over the years I am sure we would see this topic over and over. I wonder if the answers change.
