Except for this thread, which is reserved for discussion of International Don't Post in a Religion Thread Day.
Will YOU take the pledge?
Today is national "don't do drugs day"... Will you take the pledge?
Oops! Already smoked pot this morning, might as well call it tomorrow.
Ah praise Jesus for this day of thoughtful reflection on his glory! For he keeps and preserves me from one moment to the next by lending me breath!
I pledge to restrict my religious nuances to this thread only! Today only. Until the sun goes down.
Perhaps a more elegant and relative pledge would be believers "Don't Post in a Religion Thread Day Unless It's Honest"
The silence here would be deafening.
Well, I do my best to refer to unprovable posits and subjective opinions as my personal beliefs instead of talking about them like they were universally proven facts, no matter how strongly I might believe them to be true. I think that's pretty honest.
Now if only everyone would do that...
Yes, that is smart to do. I like also to talk about why some ideas are the most reasonable conclusions considering all the facts and logic taken into consideration. Even then, I try to state that its my opinion or belief, but back it with very good reasons. Too many people never really do this. Many are made to feel idiotic just for thinking how they do, when if they really thought about it, they would find that there are great reasons for believing that way.
Some things are more reasonable and fair conclusions, based on what we know, over others. I wish all people did what you did though at least, and say its their own held belief, opinion, or assertion.
WAY too many assertions floating around as facts out there. That would halt a lot of the pointless debates which I try to avoid. You have to keep back tracking too much, and pointing out how "this doesn't follow that necessarily at all", etc. Ok, done rambling now lol
Applause!! And tomorrow is "don't be a jackass on religious threads" day.!!
Even getting the "recently active threads" list down to 50% religion threads or less will make a difference! Won't you give? A f*** less what other people think?
No no, seriously now, what the crap?
International Start Even More Loopy Religion Threads Than Usual Day isn't for another month. Some of you need to check your calendars.
This is a laudible effort and I will support it However, I would settle for "Post your religious views in religious threads/topics ONLY but stop inflicting your pro/con religious views outside those areas"-- and, appropriate to the tornado season here in the Midwest, I specifically do not want to hear how your guardian angel saved your a$$ while smearing your neighbors all over the landscape. Thank you. Good day to you.
A.k.a. FFS can't we talk about something else day.
I will start now. I missed the memo.
Is there some reason why you waited until 10am eastern time to share this? I'd pledge, but I've already posted.
Because that's when I got the idea to make it up. Really the 24-hour period begins when you see the thread. And, of you like, it resets each time you see the thread thereafter, because it will always say "Today."
But it's really more like I just decided to take a break from religion posting and I announced it to help reduce the temptation to post in other religion threads anyway.
And it's working! I see a thread, I become incensed, I'm about to post when suddenly I remember, oh wait! It's International Don't Post in a Religion Thread Day! And then I don't post.
It's like magic/k!
It might also be some satirical way of telling everyone to stop taking themselves so seriously. I dunno. I haven't fully wrapped my head around that part of it yet.
Yes indeed, it doesn't take much to get atheists to play "Jump the Shark" now does it.
I...I...I can't...stop! I...need...an...intervention!
I recommend the religion thread patch. It will yell at you and mock your beliefs at random intervals. You'll completely forget that you're not posting.
Will your patch call me stupid as well as mock my beliefs? I really need one of those!
You're stupid and your belief is a hamster
No, that should be "Your mother was a hamster and your father smelt of elderberries!"
What a great idea for a thread and so long overdue
Of course. You can't have an intelligent debate without insulting people's intelligence. Believing or not believing in certain things automatically makes you smarter and/or dumber, depending on who you talk to. Everyone knows that.
I have decided to take a variation on this idea and start patently silly religion threads every now and then in an effort to lighten the mood around here a bit.
It's what Jesus would do. I think.

Hey Hubbers,It seems to be missing from the forum. It appears that many hubbers only come to help and then lurk above watching the forums.It seems as though there is no one chatting on a regular basis and that is because many hubbers have left the forums due to other people.So, I contend to now...

Oh yes, boys and girls, I am back, like a bad penny. I wonder what are conservative poster's positions on this topic is; are they really for freedom of religion or should children be hogtied and forced to participate in loyalty tests? I have studied with Jehovah's Witnesses and I say that their...

Hi,About a week ago, I started a thread on Nigerian Child witches in the religious forums. This was after seeing a documentary about this horrific practice. I wanted to ask the religious experts how this could possibly be done by churches in the name of God.Well, as you can imagine, this did not...

I just had an idea: to get our minds of all the bad news the media presents us with how about we have a thread in which people can post any good news they come upon? And it can be personal, national or international news!My good news of the day was finding out that the UK government says it is not...
