A lot of times, the first few posts on religious threads are usually by non-believers and say nothing other than ridicule / deny the subject of
religion. These posts contribute NOTHING to the subject being discussed. While I don't mind long discussions on religious matters as long as there is
substance or an interesting perspective, such hit-and-run posts are annoying and disruptive in nature, and overall simply ruins the decorum.
Here are some examples...
Can you imagine a non-believer in UFO's going over to the UFO section and making posts in threads dismissing outright the UFO phenomena as a hoax and
the people who believe as "delusional"? I mean, its one thing question the evidence or theorizing on as to what it actually was... but to just
outright deny their existence?
Now, I am not even saying one has to be a believer to participate in a thread in the religion and faith section... but if all they have to contribute
is ridicule and "its all fake" kind of posts... and refuse to move beyond Religion 101... then there is a problem.
I kindly requests admins and mods to look into this.
I’ve seen too many religious threads now, where the majority of the thread discussion, is dictated too, by the first post response; which invariable
consists of this “God is not real” type of post. And unfortunately in many cases, the rest of the thread comments, tend to spiral out of control
There’s nothing worse than starting a thread topic around the Bible, Religion and God etc and some guy waltzes in, and shouts “prove it”,
“where’s the evidence of Gods existence” etc. Especially when there are other threads, which cater for such discussions, and if there’s a
shortage, then they should create a thread themselves.
I think ATS should maybe consider a Skeptic vs Skeptic discussions/threads, Skeptic vs Believers threads, and Believers vs Believers discussing, with
like-minded believer threads. Or perhaps even a God section for skeptics, and a God section for believers.
