Philosophy and Religion aren't synonymous yet when going to the "Philosophy" and Religion select Category all the options available are religious. Also, not all Philosophy is Atheistic or Agnostic.
It is quite clear that you need to either add more options under this subsection or just give philosophy its own category with subheading of Metaphysics, Epistemology, Human Nature, Ethics, Politics, and Aesthetics, and then go from there as well for possible other sub categories. If one actually has a more philosophical piece, or just wants to talk about philosophy overall,. None of these will really fit into any of the predefined categories. Thus it is nigh impossible to actually put that piece in an appropriate category in many instances leaving one looking for trying to figure out what category might be the best place to put such a piece.
I guess you don't know.
Religion is a specific philosophy.
There's a reason why it says Religion and Philosophy, which is about religious philosophies.
Education and Science - Philosophy is another category by itself already.
Ah, okay, well that is damn confusing to say the least, then perhaps they should rename that particular category as you stated Religious Philosophies or just remove the philosophy thing.
I think the OP has a valid request. Philosophy is a sub-category in the Education and Science forum. It should just be a Religious forum. The two categories are too broad and far apart to be one forum topic. And for those who use a forum filter, many have the Religion forum blocked. It probably wouldn't make a huge difference, but it might be nice to see more philosophical threads.
Here is the Philosophy sub-category link-
Shows just how much philosophy has died that it gets it own sub section under Science and Education.
Yes, I noticed that there are hardly any threads started in that sub-category. It would be nice if it had it's own forum category. I think many forum readers don't dig too deep into the sub-categories.
Well perhaps you had people like me who thought that when they saw Religion and Philosophy, that was the place to look for you know, actual Philosophy topics or to place them in that spot.
I mean seriously, I would never have thought to look under Science and Education, because honestly that isn't where it really belongs. I mean you have Religion and Philosophy sitting right there as a main category.
I agree with this Philosophy and Religion are to very different things in my eyes. Religion is more of a basis of which people base there life off of which has set of documentation of there beliefs. Whilst Philosophy is more open to creative thinking and ideals of how we perceive reality and the world around us. These are very different. But that's my opinion just throwing it out there maybe we can see a separation of the two in the future.

Since I felt limited in my expression, I asked HUBPAGES to create a new category: "NOT TO ANY RELIGION BOUND RELIGIOUS PERSONS". THIS IS A POSITIVE INITIATIVE; IT IS NOT "AGAINST" ANYTHING!I JUST DONT WANT MY HUBS AND COMMENTS TO BE CATEGORIZED IN A PLACE WHERE THEY DONT...

Can you put all the religious, theology, atheist, etc.. stuff on a separate site, give it their own tab/page or something so the rest of us don't have to be hit in the face with it every time we come to hubpages.

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...

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...
