First, welcome to ATS. I hope your search for knowledge and information is fruitful.
In regards to the perceived hostility towards religion (Christianity in particular) I believe it stems from the perception that many of faith give
off; which is do as I say, not as I do. Now of course, this can be applied to anyone, not just those who practice faith in Christianity.
Some here, of faith and sans-faith present this style. As you spend more time here, you will see it. Another is people that use these boards to not
further their knowledge but as an opportunity to evangelize. My advice is your faith is yours and no one else. Use your faith as an example, use it
as defense, but don't push it upon others that are not soliciting for it. With that simple baseline, you will notice that besides the rabid few, most
won't even care you come from a perspective of faith (unless of course the discussion is in regards to said faith or other faiths!)
As the poster above me, if you notice they immediately demeans your question by calling it a fairytale. It is their right and their ability to call
it as such, but you presented a simple question only to be instantly cast aside for your beliefs. Don't disparage for there are many here that may
not follow the doctrine of the Church, of Jesus or even a God(s), but will engage you and your questions from an objective point of view that will
help you and them in their ever constant quest for knowledge.
Again, welcome to ATS. Dive in or just browse. Feel your way around but please don't leave this community feeling attacked or singled out because of
