Should HP relegate all questions regarding Religion to the Forums, rather than allowing them in Q&A?
Questions about religion often require more detailed answers than what is provided in Q&A's 250 word limit. Also, we also now have a handful of New Atheist's who are now deleting every single comment that is answered by "religionists," especially Christian believers. Would not a more even back and forth exchange be more suitable than a one-sided argument? Additionally, too many questions are meant to provoke, such as those which suggest that Atheist are more intelligent than Christians. Long story short, an intelligent exchange requires more serious thought and two (reasonable) sides.
Sure that makes sense. It would provide more space to go into detail.
The solution would be to write a hub, not discussions.
I don't see a point in changing it that much. If someone knows the person is just going to delete their answer then why would they want to answer? Not logical.
2500 characters is enough to get across an answer. The follow up arguing could be eliminated by removing the commenting on answers like it use to be. Not sure why they ever added the commenting on answers since that encourages lengthy debates which is not what this section is for. So if we are going to debate in the Q and A, keeping it short is best.
By removing the comment part that would keep conversations from being one sided. The Asker gets a chance to ask and the answerer gets to answer, then they have to move on.
Annsalo, They may want to answer in order to counter a false supposition/question with facts. Secondly, the questioner can still delete the useful information and still maintain a 1-sided argument. The forums do not allow for this knee jerk reaction.

I am new here so it's possible this has been suggested before. How about a debate forum, separate from the other forums, where contentious topics can be debated? So, if people wanted to discuss, say, a philosophical topic in the Religion forum and someone jumped in and started debating,...

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...

First, you're not allowed to post links to your Hubs anywhere on the forums except in the Makeover section, so asking people to post links is problematic.Second, everyone wants to find those magic subjects that do well in the search engines . So it's a really bad idea to go telling everyone...

Not so much a question forum or anything, just a newbie making an observation

I was just looking at the titles of the threads for the forums and was immediately struck by the large number of religious topics, many of which have God in the title. I am just wondering why there are so many religious posts here at present? It makes hubpages look as if it is full of religious...
