You're missing the point here.
The OP is not objecting to disagreement, but to deliberate derailment of discussion.
Supposing you were trying to have a political debate, and every other post was coming from a solipsist saying "You want to argue whether one
politician is better than another, but we can't possibly do that until we've sorted out whether other people really exist".
You would soon want to start saying "Just for the purpose of this discussion, can we just take it for granted that people do exist".
IThe OP is quoting a thread which was written and made sticky by the Mods, talking about allowing a discussion to get beyond the basics, and move on
from "Religion 101".
Please allow that to happen.
By all means disagree, but disagree "on-topic". If the topic of a thread is "That passage in the Bible has this meaning", the only on-topic way of
disagreeing is to say "That passage in the Bible has a different meaning",
it's all about "on-topic", which is just as fundamental to this forum as disagreement.
