    I left HP after 2 weeks of writing a year ago, and joined back up roughly a week ago. However, it seems that HP has transformed into a website where Atheists and Christians gather to argue with one another. Am I accurate with this assumption?

      Good you've come back. I came back about a week ago too! Maybe more of us might follow...

      I joined 5 weeks ago, I did not notice that. For me, HubPages is a good platform for learning. Discussions here are respectiful. I ran away from comments sections of CNN, FB etc because I cannot stand trolls and flamethrowers.

      Not at all.   It's still a writing site, first and foremost.   

      I rarely notice the religious debates these days, since the forums were split up.  I don't see many religious posts in my feed, probably because I don't follow those topics and I don't follow people who are active in them.

      Welcome back Kyle, I have felt like leaving but I have so many friends on here.

    Always has been. Always will be. But these days they do it in their own separate little corner, so to speak.

      Definitely not in my corner - I hope we can be mature enough not to.

    Five pages between the hubpages forum and the topical forum, approx 30 threads per page = 150 threads. Out of 150 threads approx. 14 are atheist/theist discussion.
    They are clearly labeled so you don't even have to click on them if that subject is not your cup of tea.
    Welcome back.

      Thank you. Maybe I'm just following the wrong people.

        Oh you mean on the Hubpages main page? Huh... I hadn't thought of that. I know you can switch from forums to hubs, plus you can unfollow any threads... but I wonder if there's a way to control what goes out on your main page or if everyone receives the same feed???

          Feed is based on who you follow and threads you post to. Generally. smile

    There's a Feed Filter near top-right. Experimenting with it will get you what you want.

    It is definitely a function of the people and topics that you follow.  I don't see the religion and politics threads at all, except maybe once in a while a Hubber I follow decides to write a hub in those topics for a change.

    That's one of the reason I don't particularly go on main page.

    Millionaire has it right--it's who you follow and your perception. There are many, many wonderful topics on Hub Pages--science, travel, finance, health, etc. You name it. You can find a hub on almost every topic you can imagine. So, roll up your sleeves, pick your niche, and let's see those hubs!

    Welcome back!

    Yes, kylesanderson -- you are accurate in your assumption and the debates are really getting out of hand. The thing most people need to remember and accept, is that we are all free to have our own belief  system -- simple as that.

    I agree with you Phyllis. We can all have different beliefs and respect for each others individuality. It doesn't matter if someone is an atheist or christian; I believe what matters is what's in the heart.

    Oh my goodness! Thank you, paradigmsearch! I did not know about the feed filter. I am so tired of some of these debates that show up on my main page! Hope this fixes things!

    I have been here almost 4 years.  Never left this wonderful site.  As for the "Atheists vs Christians" forums, I kept away from them.  Just like oil and water, they will never mix.  Why bother wasting time arguing over a topic that will never resolve whichever side one stands.

    Welcome back kylesanderson! Yes, you are right about Atheists vs Christians here on HP. They keep on debating about a never-ending issue, an issue which can never be resolved because it involves beliefs and ideology. Like Good Guy said, I stay away from these kind of forums.
