Why put Religion and Philosophy in the same category?
I want to filter out religious posts from my forum page but I am very interested in philosophy.
Many philosophers were and are against religion, what are religion and philosophy doing in the same basket?
I have in front of me the full list of HP Categories.
The word "religion" appears 41 times and heads the main Category "Religion and Philosophy".
The word "philosophy" on the other hand, appears only 16 times and heads the main category"Philosophy"
When scroolling through the "Religion and Philosophy" sub-categories, I find a lot of spirituality stuff on "angels", "astrology, divination, etc. but only 3 references to philosophy.
It wouldn't hurt therefore to change the category "Religion and Philosophy" to "Religioin and Spirituality".
You can't just change things willy-nilly. Spirituality is not philosophy, like my philosophy of fishing. Although I may have a philosophy of spirituality,
like I interpret signs.
Exactly. Spirituality is closer to religion than philosophy is.
This is what I mean, philosophy has nothing to do with religion, it is by definition:
Love and pursuit of wisdom by intellectual means and moral self-discipline.
This has already been discussed here:
Changing the topic hierarchy at the very top level has pretty profound implications for our system of interlinking, so we won't do it unless the change is absolutely necessary.
You can find philosophy under this category as well:

Hi, I can't help thinking that it would be helpful to have the option for hubs to be linked to more than one category if necessary. For example, I wrote a review on a book about the TV show Mad Men. However,...

what about a motorcycle and riding gear category instead of just the different motocycles?

Can you put all the religious, theology, atheist, etc.. stuff on a separate site, give it their own tab/page or something so the rest of us don't have to be hit in the face with it every time we come to hubpages.

Within our self-created "groups," it would be useful if there were some way to duplicate a hub across a couple of groups, as sometimes a topic bridges more than one area.For example, my recent hub on keeping...
