was wondering yet again why threads here at hubpages continue to talk or attempt to talk religion or certain aspects of it. We all should know by now that these threads get heated & people fall out. So why continue the same behaviour ?
That's why I ignore those threads, the filter makes it that I don't need to see anything I don't want to see. Until they spill over into the other forums.
I guess if people repeat the same things over and over again that they somehow will change people's minds, it's the same in the political forums.
You can download the filter from this page:
Because one side thinks it is making fools of the other and vice versa.
And of course they are, though each only for a specific audience.
If you're up for it, those threads can provide for some nice entertainment.
I found some amusing quotes that I put in my hub about venturing into the religious forums. Sometimes, it's rather entertaining in there
I think it's boring too. And it seems that some of these people just choose one book of the Bible, and write a hub on one chapter each day or so, straight from the Book itself. Isn't that plagerism? I've seen some where they barely tried to explain the situation in their own words. I don't think it belongs here.
Anything that was written before 1921 or maybe 1923 and the copyright has not been renewed is in the public domain. The Bible was written well before that.
I may read it occasionally but I've taught myself never to respond. I'll never win and I don't need the flames so I don't waste my time. They are useful if I want to create an extremist fictional character.
They a constant source of amusement for me...
I didn't realise that most of the planet was that brain washed - and so serious too. Lighten up people.
Well, I am off to copy 3,000 words out of the Bible, in capitals and no paragraphs too....
Why do so many forum threads attempt to talk religion?
Because it's a topic for discussion.
I believe there are a number of reasons people engage in religious bantering. One being most people love a mystery and religious faith is perhaps the biggest mystery of all.
Secondly there may be those sitting on the fence with respect to believing or nonbelieving reading the comments presented by the participants just might be what they needed to get off that fence.
It is unfortunate conversations do get heated but if however in the end someone feels they have benefited through these engagements than just maybe it was worth it.
It's like the guy who got a tattoo of the Leviticus passage that condemns homosexuality. He sort of missed the part in Leviticus that condemns tattooes...

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...

Hello all,I was just checking around in my activities to see where I spent too much time (reading in forum threads I am shocked that people write in) on HP or not enough time lately (minding my own business, I guess)....

A good definition of insanity is to continue doing the same act over and over, while expecting a different result each time. The believers will not ( can not ) change the minds of the non-believers. And visa...
