    arguing, no.  Debating - it depends. Debate and discussion are how people learn and can see all sorts of new perspectives.  I think it can be helpful for those with open minds/hearts to help understand others.  Reasonable people can agree to disagree, and still respect one another. 

    I am all for people believing whatever they want, but I draw the line on issues where people feel the need or right to use their religion to infringe upon the rights of others.  I think the world needs a lot more "live and let live" and a lot less self-proclaimed moral superiority.

      Beautiful! Some viewpoints are superior, but thankfully they are all loving viewpoints not bent on beating others over the head.

    As ChristinS says it is fine  to agree to disagree.  As for her and other people on Hub Pages they are very respectable towards others who have different beliefs.  However, there are others who tend to attack others and I think it is to stir things up.  I have decided to stay away from the answers section (Lol! If I can) and concentrate on what I originally came on Hub Pages to do-and that is to write.  I would agree if it was a respectable debate than it would be worth it but not if it turns to arguing or fighting

    An argument suggests anger and yelling and both sides refusing to see the other side's point.  Discussing religion is, I believe, healthy.  There are so many misled people in the world, and hopefully at some point we can all reach the truth together.  Discussions and debates are a good way to do this.

    Argument (persuasive discussion) is critical to continued growth and development. If people do not express their opinions, we will see little change in society. I think if people choose to be open-minded and want to hear a difference of opinion, then arguing over religion can be constructive. Otherwise, it can lead to ill feelings and be futile.

    I agree that it often seems fruitless. Rarely does one side change the viewpoint of the other. However, considering how strong and influential religion is, I feel it is crucial that it be called into question. It's a form of accountability for something with so much power.

      I agree. Something this powerful must be able to be drawn into question.

    I am sure the people of the past who were put to death for not believing in fairy tales would have liked to argue their case.

    Since I do not want to someday end up like them, yes I do think that debating religion is worth it at least in some cases.
