Why do I insist on answering religious questions when I know every single time I get rated down...
and my hub author score gets a hit?
I would think it's because you have an opinion, and you want to share your opinion with the world, in the hopes that someone somewhere will either agree with you or take it to heart.
There will definitely be people who will rate you down or anyone for that matter where religious questions are concerned. There are so many different diverse people with different religions to start with, and whatever answer provided may not please everyone. So, for religious matters, I normally abstain, not because I fear being rated down (which happened to my non-religious ones too), but I find it pointless to do that. Of course, this is my personal view.
politics and religion are two topics where there will always be strong opposition no matter what you say. Its just the nature of things.
Because of love. We love all even the unlovely and if we just reach one person with the love of Jesus - it's worth it!
I love you to death-
Interesting question. I think it's because you actually feel that thinking isn't a bad thing, and that the exchange of ideas is a productive endeavor. I agree wholeheartedly. Even if it means my hub author score takes a hit, I have no problem answering a question as honestly and as clearly as I can. I love conversation and I love posing questions. I only think voting an answer down is fair if it doesn't add to the value of conversation. I get annoyed when someone does it just to show their disagreement with your viewpoint. Keep answering. You have the right to an opinion, in my "opinion" that is.

Recently, a friend of mine tried fixing me up on a date with a woman who she claimed was 'perfect for you, Jon!' Admittedly, we were very clearly attracted to each other and got along great. We had a couple of drinks together and it was a good time. Unfortunately, there must've been a truth serum...

Everyday we get closer to answering the big questions: where did the Universe come from, how did life form on Earth, and what is the origin of humanity? Now, it appears that we're one step closer to answering at least one of the "Big Three": How Did Life Form On Earth. Biochemists have...

How do you deal with people who insist they are always right?Some people talk about others faults and how they are always right. They don't consider the fact that they may be wrong or not tolerant of other opinions. How do you deal with those who are always right in their own minds?
