Well...we do have a Religion forum here.
Just because ATS is/was founded as a conspiracy site, does not mean it cannot harbor discussions about a broad range of topics. Thus we have the usual
suspects, Aliens, Paranormal Studies, NOW, etc… Then we have other topics such as Politics, Religion, War on Terror, Survival, Technology, Space
Exploration, Medical Issues, etc...
All of these do not necassarily induce conspiracy discussion, although they could. Some people feel that ATS should only be used for this reason, or
only for that reason, and I don't see that. What ATS strives to be in my opinion is a place where people can come to have intelligent discussion
about any topic they find interesting. This is a place where serious minded people can get away from the white noise of internet discussion, and have
some real conversations with other serious minded people.
I also don't agree that ATS feels like a business though. It feels more like a tight knit community to me today than it ever has.
I guess it's all what you make of it though.
