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.
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.

I find the politics and religion forums too subjective. A philosophy forum would cover all the issues that those two subjects do not. If say I wanted to write about animal rights it would have to be something in recent(ish) political debate such as fox-hunting in order for it to fit into the...

Why are people posting so many religeous or spiritual questions in a forum for Writers? Is it that some just like to start arguments that cannot be proven either way? Or, the more likely, are some using forums for doing their religeous service instead of going house to house and getting the door...

I can't help but notice that after a few bannings of prolific forum participants, the forum participation has dropped dramatically.Gone are the days when I had around 3 pages of Hubbers Hangout topics to peruse, nowadays I just check the main forum page where there seems to be around three threads...

I have noticed that an increasing number of people seem to have joined this site merely to spam religion on the forum. This would be okay if it was not for the fact that this is a forum for writers, not theists.I am all for having a community forum, but I believe it should be a community forum for...
