    Religion and Philosophy forums: irritating, or mightily entertaining?

    I find them usually entertaining, sometimes irritating, occasionally educational, almost always enlightening:

    Entertaining to see how people will express themselves, how they describe their positions or beliefs.

    Irritating to see the occasional input of those who are so intolerant of beliefs that don't match their own.

    Educational when I learn more about a culture, religion or philosophy.

    Enlightening when they provide a reflection of myself that teaches me about myself, whether good or bad.

    Thanks.

    I haven't attempted to look into a Religion or a Philosophy forum yet, and doubt if I would ever be able to do  so with any joy.  I was always told that one doesn't discuss Religion or Politics, and I think this holds true here.
    I have seen a few comments on hubs that have been amazingly "zealous" when commenting on something not even vaguely religious, and it leaves a rather bad taste in my mouth.  Religion is a very private affair, and philosophy? 
    Kant? Engels? Paddington Bear? Nietsche? 
    They all had something to say, but I'm afraid i am too shallow for all that stuff.
