I noticed one discussion happening in the religion and philosophy forum. The question they are...
discussing, which I will pose here is this: "Why are hubbers afraid to enter the religion and philosophy forum?" (The idea that the range of participation is rather paltry given the big number of membership of HubPages). So what do you think: Why do so many hubbers avoid the religion/philosopy and political forums?
Maybe there are many reasons why and I suppose that nobody wanted to be influenced by the other. Or is it because majority of the hubbers do not belong to any religious sects or do not believe in God? Thanks and have a nice day.
Different intellect perception of things and events presupposes certain spatial distribution of thought , a closer or similar space forum for linking of ideas helps in linking those views..???
Discussing religion and philosophy in person is a better way to get yourself shot than confusing Robert E. Lee with Colonel Sanders in an Atlanta bar. On a computer, it's going to get you ignored regardless of what position you take. One side claims the other are idiots, while the other side says the first are know-it-alls. And if your purpose is to get as many fans, followers, and page hits as you can(such as with Hubpages) you'd sooner drink wine from a vineyard of lepers than you would dare let yourself be destroyed by walking into that crossfire.
Religion is personal to many people and many do not feel a need to justify their beliefs or to convert others.
It may also be that religion does not generate good revenue.
They are very touchy subjects. Plain and simple. People tend to be extremely opinionated on these topics, and it causes a disturbance in the general flow of an intelligent conversation when people feel threatened for speaking freely.
These forums evoke certain beliefs out of each of us. These beliefs vary depending on age, sex, race, creed, location, where you grew up, how you grew up, and all the other factors of our lives. So we all tend to discover what works for us. But people have a hard time dealing with the fact that what works for them may not (and likely will not) work for someone else. Thus the conversation about philosophy will turn into an argument. So instead people just shy away from the topics altogether for fear of finding themselves in some rant about whose life plan is right.
We endeavor to make peace with others. I will talk about it if it will not turn to be an argument or debate. If the motive and intention is good that would be encouraging for me, but if you just want to boast your knowledge in philosophy and about the bible and if it is something to just put down others well is another story. The God of true religion is a God of peace and not of disorder.

I don't mind folk debating Theology and the Meaning of Life but there are some people on Hubpages who keep banging on from their electronic pulpit about Jesus and the Bible. I think it's time that Hubpages considered whether this is appropriate content. I think it belongs on religious websites not...

Does it strike any one else as odd that there are inordinate amount of religious-types on HubPages?I ask this with all due respect to everyone's personal belief systems. It just kinda strikes me as odd that nearly every second Hub is religion-themed. I am a rational humanist and a cynic. I could...
