What makes the religious forums the most controversial, confrontational, contentious, fascinating, and highly dangerous forums around? One is apprehensive of entering and participating but is somehow drawn to this forum as if there is some perverse curiosity about it !
I'm drawn to it simply because I find the subject matter fascinating, yet I don't perceive opposing views as a real threat. Unlike politics, where different ideologies could seriously affect my life if they took hold and came into power. Discussion of religion gives us a window into the inner workings of the mind of other individuals. Religion shows our hopes and dreams, how we view our fellow man, how we view ourselves and how we view the universe.
That's true. You are repelled and entranced simultaneously by observing interactions in the Religion Forum. You simply cannot leave, you want to know WHAT ELSE is going to occur and WHERE the conversation and discussion are going and to what type of conclusion, if any. As I have said, the Religion Forums are like NO OTHER forum. It is UNIQUE beyond words.

I couldn't help but notice an abundance of religious forums on my feed. I'm not sure if this is merely a mistake on part of my content algorithms or if these demographics are unique to HubPages. Most of which are those who are arguing for the supremacy of their religion over others. What baffles me...

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,...

Why do atheists, being so logically and rationally minded, insist on going into obvious christian forms and mocking, insulting, and demeaning those who claim God? Why not start your own topics and engage amongst yourselves? Or is scoffing your sole purpose. Jesus warned us about you. 2000 years...

In light of my latest hub I was wondering what other people believe the proper role of Imagination in faith is. So I figured this would be the best place to ask that question...So what do you think?
